Are you planning a birthday party or wedding and starting to panic about everything on your to-do list? Take a deep breath and check off everything that has to do with the tent rental. When you are renting a tent for a big event, it makes sense to rent the tables, chairs, and linens from the same company. In addition to these more traditional rental items, many companies also offer tent rental accessories that cover, and might even go beyond the rest of your to-do list.
The best parties last well into the night, so your tent will need to have proper lighting for your guests to see. Rather than breaking out a ladder and fussing with string lights yourself, bundle the lighting with the tent rental. That way, when the professionals set up the tent, they’ll also take care of the illumination. While you could still opt for string lights from the rental company, you can go grander with a chandelier or more subtle with track lighting. Tent accessories can also include a light dimmer switch for easy control that allows you to adjust the lighting throughout the day.
When you live in an area with unpredictable weather and temperatures that shift suddenly, you’ll likely need some help with keeping your guests comfortable in an outdoor event. If you think it may get a bit too warm during the day, check the rental company’s list of tent rental accessories for optional air conditioning. Likely, they will have portable air conditioning units that can be set up in the tent to keep temperatures cool. If you’re worried that the temperatures will dip after the sun sets, ask for heating options when you rent your tent. The rental company will likely have outdoor heaters that operate at safe temperatures for your event.
Adding sidewalls to your tent rental will give your event a more private and intimate feel while also protecting your guests from the wind and rain. How many times have you seen table linens and even chairs knocked over by strong winds? Sidewalls can easily solve that problem as well. Including this protection in your tent rental accessories, however, doesn’t mean that you’ll have to turn your sun-drenched outdoor party into a dark cave. Sidewalls come in options of clear, mesh, solid, and cathedral. Cathedral sidewalls have windows, shaped like those seen on the sides of stone cathedrals, cut into the sides and covered with clear vinyl to let in light. If you want sidewalls but are still concerned about letting in enough natural light, you can opt for a clear tent roof.
One-stop shopping is the ultimate convenience when you’re planning an event and have a lot to accomplish. Take care of your lights, temperature, and weather protection by bundling it all together with your tent rental.
