1. Because choosing a rental tent takes just as much consideration as choosing a venue.
Not unlike when Indiana Jones surveyed his Holy Grail options in The Last Crusade, it is vital to choose a wedding tent wisely. Remember, it is your principal backdrop: it will feature prominently in your wedding photos and deserves just as much thought as you would give to assessing an indoor venue. Since the prototype was designed and made by founder Steve Sperry 20 years ago, Sperry Tents were an immediate game changer in the event industry, setting a whole new bar for rental tent elegance. If you want guests to ooh and ahh over your tent, then give us a call!
2. Because a tented wedding is the ultimate blank slate.
When you choose an outdoor wedding under a Sperry Tent, you don’t have to worry about that ugly ballroom rug. Or those gold drapes on Palladian windows. Or those random hotel guests who aren’t part of your reception. A tented reception allows you to get married in your own backyard, at your family’s summer house, or on the grounds of your favorite golf club, museum, or historic estate. If you can dream it, we can tent it.
3. Because you can get creative with different tented “destinations.”
Thanks to our wide range of sizes, from small rounds to large squares and ovals – all equally elegant, with matching ivory sailcloth – there are many creative ways to employ Sperry Tents for your big day. Here are just a few ideas off the top of our heads: a kids’ tent filled with art supplies, candy treats, and bean bags; a cocktail tent with illuminated marquee letters, high-top tables, and a live jazz trio; a welcome tent with an escort card display, beer on ice, and signature cocktails on tap; a cigar-rolling tent, with bonus whiskey tasting station. So much possibility!
4. Because connecting with the great outdoors is your favorite activity.
Whether you and your betrothed are boaters, skiers, hikers, or even bird watchers, it makes sense to honor your connection to nature with an outdoor wedding. A reception under a Sperry Tent offers the best of both worlds: protection from the elements but direct involvement with the surrounding landscape. And don’t forget to encourage guests to move beyond the confines of a tent with games (croquet, anyone?), lawn furniture (Adirondack chairs are comfy), boat cruises, and golf cart rides. The more guests interact with the setting, the more memorable your big day will be.
5. Because pulling off a seamless outdoor wedding takes experience.
Planning an outdoor wedding involves a lot of moving parts, and is not unlike building a venue from scratch one day, and then taking it down again the next. You’ll need an experienced tent professional on your side through the whole process, from the initial site check to the final take down. Together, we can plan for: rain, power usage for the tent and other vendors, lighting choices inside the tent and out, catering facilities, party rental deliveries, and extreme temperatures. And if your wedding date falls in a popular month, contact us early to ensure all of your desired equipment is reserved well in advance.
So if you’re recently engaged, congratulations! We look forward to making your wedding a momentous occasion.
