Tips from JoAnn Gregoli of Elegant Occasions on how to throw the perfect tented wedding at your home:
Plan it: Take the time to get a floor plan from your planner to show how the lay of the land will work out.
Prep it: Spray for bugs, make sure you are not near any septic fields or water lines.
: Hire a company who supplies clean tents and make sure they actually come to measure and stake it out.
: Retain a great rental companies who have the rental items that replicate your desired look.
: You must carry wedding insurance and liability insurance.
: Have a rain plan in place, be sure you have heaters, fans and tents on standby.
: Lighting is the key to creating a wonderful environment within the tent structure, great lighting transforms a space.
: Make sure your style is reflected in the overall event, project monogrammed gobos onto the tent, make it your own, if you love corn hole have games during cocktail hour.
Easier to plan an event that has some sort of theme: garden, country, whimsical.
: Relax and enjoy the day!
