For your next special event, a tent rental may be just what puts the special day over the top. With all of the tent choices, however, which type of tent isn’t for your special event?
A tent that’s too small or too large
It stands to reason that underestimating the number of guests at your event will mean a cramped space or, worse, guests left out in the elements. Too large and you’ll be left with a large, empty space in your tent.
Luckily the right tent size is as simple as getting a proper headcount. Rental tents have maximum capacities that will help you determine the size you need. This, coupled with the size and shape of your venue will ensure you get a tent that’s just right.
A tent that doesn’t have all the amenities
Don’t forget that your rental tent won’t need to just fit your guests, tables, and chairs, you’ll also need to account for amenities too. For example, if you’re serving food, you’ll need space for serving tables and even the service crew.
The right rental tent also ensures you have all the extra amenities your event will need to go off without a hitch. Some other common event extras include:
- Dance floor or other flooring
- Furniture and other decor
- Linens, silverware, and dishware
- Luxury mobile restrooms
- Stage for podium and/or band
- Tent lighting
A tent that isn’t ready for the elements
Part of the benefit of having a rental tent is, of course, to protect your guests from the elements. Whether sun or rain, sleet or snow, the overhead cover will ensure you and your guests stay dry.
Staying warm, however, is a different story. During the cooler months, heaters may be necessary to keep everyone warm and comfortable. Should your event day be windy, tent walls may be necessary.
Preparing for the elements is one of the best ways to make sure you have a successful event – and a rain plan tent is a great way to do it!
