Three Ways To Use Small Pop-Up Tents At Your Outdoor Wedding

If you plan to hold your wedding outdoors, it's common to rent a large tent that can accommodate you and your guests. While a tent will provide shelter from inclement weather, you might not feel the need for this type of tent if you're getting married in a place where it seldom rains. Instead, you might favor renting a number of small pop-up tents from your local event rental specialist. These tents come in several sizes and are easy to set up and take down. They generally have open sides, although it's possible to upgrade to models that have three enclosed sides. Here are some ways that you can use small pop-up tents at your outdoor wedding.

Food Stations

Instead of having one large buffet area for food, it can be fun to have different food stations. This may especially be an idea that appeals to you if you're serving your guests a selection of appetizers instead of having a formal sit-down meal. You can set up a number of pop-up tents throughout your outdoor venue and have food and drink options in each one. The tents will provide shade for the food and drinks, which is valuable if you're getting married on a sunny day.

Game Stations

The addition of an assortment of games can help to give your wedding reception a fun and relaxed vibe. For an outdoor wedding, it can make sense to rent a number of small pop-up tents that you can use to create game stations for your guests. A tent with three enclosed sides, for example, will prevent cross breezes that could cause playing cards and other light game accessories to blow away. If you want to offer electronic games for your guests such as pinball and arcade games, positioning the games beneath pop-up tents will prevent glare on their screens that would otherwise occur if they were out in the sun.

Sitting Areas

At outdoor weddings, it's common to set up a number of small sitting areas for your guests. For example, you might have a round table with four to six chairs positioned around it. Shade for these sitting areas is important on a hot day, and your elderly wedding guests may especially appreciate being out of the sun. Instead of trying to find natural sources of shade — something that can be a challenge at certain venues — you can create sitting areas under several pop-up tents. Doing so will not only provide shade, but it can also create a cozy vibe for people who want to converse.
