10 REASONS WHY YOU NEED A TENT AT YOUR EVENT

Here are 10 good reasons to have tented weddings.

Whether you are producing a small event or a big event, having a tent will always come in handy. Here are 10 of the best reasons why.

  1. Weather. As we all know, weather can be so unpredictable. If you are planning for an event in advance it’s impossible to know what the weather will be like the day of. Having a tent can save you and your guests from the rain and give you shade from the bright sun.
  2. Food. Having a tent can help to create a space and protect your food from outdoor temperatures.
  3. Customize. Having an event with a tent means that you can customize the layout of your event space. Need multiple levels? No problem. Need several rooms inside one giant space? Sure, why not. Do you want clear walls and ceilings so that your indoor event will look and feel as if it were outdoors? Sounds good to me.
  4. Atmosphere. Think of a tent as a blank canvas. With the right décor, it will allow you to create any mood you want your event to have whether you want it to be elegant, dramatic, or even casual and relaxed. Whatever the mood, it all starts with the tent.
  5. Location. One of the best qualities of a tent is that you can reasonably place it anywhere you need to. No need to limit yourself, dream big.
  6. Bugs. Everyone hates mosquitoes. We all know you’re lying if you say you don’t. A tent with walls will keep those pesky bugs away, saving your guests from a weeks worth of itchiness.
  7. VIP. Certain events require a separate place for VIP guests to gather and be entertained. A tent can definitely provide this place if there isn’t one available.
  8. Size. The beauty about tents is that they come in all shapes and sizes. It doesn’t matter how many guests you have because there will always be a tent size that can accommodate it.
  9. Sound. Tents can act as sound barriers making the sound inside much more lively and controlled within the structure.
  10.  Experience. All of the reasons above can ensure that your guests have a once in a lifetime experience.

5 WEDDING TRENDS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2018

Here is a great article on 2018 Wedding trends by Mindy Weiss. She is worth the follow if you are involved in planning a wedding.

MINDY WEISS/ PLANNING ADVICEINSPIRATION

Hi friends! Can’t believe we’re already well into 2018! Time sure is flying. As I do every year, I love to predict what trends will be big in the wedding world for the upcoming year. I take inspiration from the runway, home décor trends and, of course, what my current clients are asking for. With that in mind, here’s what I think will be a few of the biggest wedding trends in 2018:

  • Gift lounges for destination weddings. Rather than favors, many couples doing luxury destination weddings are opting for a gifting lounge – a small, styled area with a variety of small gifts and snacks for guests to choose from. It’s such a memorable and thoughtful experience for guests.
  • Colored Candles.Candles will always add such a cozy ambience to any wedding. But this year, instead of the standard white and ivory candles, I think couples will add a splash of color to their décor accents. Candles in striking colors on your tablescapes or peppered throughout the event space are such an easy way to add something unexpected to your décor.
  • Italian Inspiration.I predict couples adding a touch of Italy to their weddings over the next year. Italian linen tablecloths and napkins in a variety of colors will make things feel more luxe. I also think Italy will be a popular pick for destination weddings this year. While beach and island locales are always popular, a destination wedding in Italy is a great European getaway for family and friends.
  • Amaranthus –It’s baaack! Just another example of how trends can come back around. So many couples are asking to incorporate Amaranthus in their décor. The cascading plant gives floral pieces a lush feel and the bold color adds some interest.
  • Greenery –Clear tents with greenery installations instead of fabric treatments will be a huge hit for outdoor events next year. Using greenery adds that natural element and makes things feel so organic and crispy. Perfect for spring and summer weddings!

What’s not to love about weddings from a guest perspective!? Dancing, great food, open bars, being surrounded by loved ones…the list could go on. But wedding party favors really seal the deal when it comes to leaving a memorable impression on your guests. Your nearest and dearest will fondly remember how much they loved the tunes at the reception or how beautiful you looked in your wedding dress, but take-home wedding favors for guests to pick up on their way out serve as their very last physical reminder of your nuptials (besides your future wedding Instagrams, of course). Plus, these gifts go way beyond a thank-you card in showing your friends and family how grateful you are that they attended your wedding. Moral of the story: make your favors count (and reusable!).

Time for some more Royal Wedding breaking news! Wedding gown alert.

With just six weeks to go, it seems the list of questions we have about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s wedding is growing longer by the minute. Who will be Meghan’s maid of honor? Will the Spice Girls really perform at the reception? How many of Harry’s exes will be in attendance? And, perhaps most pressingly, what will Meghan’s dress look like? Though there’s a good chance we won’t find out the answers to any of those until May 19, that hasn’t stopped lovers of all things royal from speculating—and now, they’ve got a new, pretty believable theory about which designer Meghan has chosen to dress her on her big day.
