Outdoor Nuptials? Don't Forget to Include a Wedding Prep Tent

Are you having an outdoor wedding and reception? Many couples of all types and personalities opt for outside nuptials, bringing the beauty of nature to the romantic beginning of a new life together. But as you plan the perfect outdoor event, don't overlook the need to provide a wedding party prep tent along with your party venue. Why? And how can you create a useful space that will add to your wedding experience? Here is a short guide to this important element. 

Why Have a Wedding Prep Tent? 

If you are using an outdoor tent for your gathering, you may or may not have access to indoor faculties as well. If these are available, they may be inconveniently located or leave you exposed to the weather. In addition, wedding party members and other VIPs may have nowhere to refresh or escape during the long reception hours. 

A nearby tent designated to serve as a workspace and retreat solves all of these problems. Your wedding party can get ready before the ceremony and will stay artfully hidden from the guests up until the final moment. They can also store their belongings in it and have somewhere for touch-ups before photos and during the reception. If the bride plans to change into a reception dress, she needs a space like this. 

How Should Your Prep Tent Be Designed?

So, if you think that a wedding prep area will be perfect for your event, how should you go about it? Start by ordering a tent that will match the style, color, and theme of your larger reception tent. Arrange to place it as close to utilities (such as power and water) as possible — preferably with access to outlets or power cord extensions. Avoid placing the tent near footpaths taken by guests.

Within the tent, you'll need elements to help people get ready. This should include plenty of chairs and covered work tables. Bring full-size standing mirrors and several movable light sources. If you don't have access to water, include a grooming station to help keep everyone neat and tidy on the go. Locking cabinets or a two-drawer locking file cabinet will keep everyone's purses, jewelry, or devices safe during the ceremony.

Set up enough work stations that every member of the bridal party and a few VIP guests can have their own space. Finally, designate a table for wedding day business, such as paying vendors and making phone calls. 

Where Should You Begin? 

Start planning your prep tent by consulting with an experienced party tent rental in your area today. Remember that no matter what size or purpose tent you want, your best bet will be to reserve it early. And then you can start planning the perfect interior setup and layout to make the best day possible.
