A Wedding Tent is more than simple coverage – it sets the scene, creates the mood and provides an itimate venue for friends and family to gather. We’ve helped hundreds of couples make their outdoor wedding plans a reality – now we welcome the opportunity to help you!
Summer weekends are a busy time for venues, planner and rental suppliers like Apex. To ensure that you get the tent you want and need, try and secure your rentals by early spring. It takes the worry out of the process and you can still make changes as guest numbers are confirmed.
Wedding planning tends to go easier if you know your budget up front. It avoids the stress of overspending and makes decisions on what items you really want and need easier to make. Be realistic about what you hope to do with your budget and don’t be afraid to ask suppliers how you can stretch your dollars further. Beware of “package pricing” since it often includes items you don’t really need and it can be costly when you want to change or remove specific items. Be sure to clarify the details of what each supplier is providing – if the quote you receive isn’t clear enough, ask; it might save you stress and additional charges after the fact.
As in all industries, event suppliers come in a wide range of quality, professionalism and price-points. How do you choose a great supplier? Ask other couples who they’ve used, get referrals from other vendors, evaluate how they deal with you on the phone and in their communication. It’s always good to visit your supplier’s place of business – are they a one-man show or do they have the resources to make sure your event goes smoothly, even on a busy weekend? How long have they been around? From florists to photographers, tenting to dj’s, remember that the lowest dollar price isn’t always the lowest cost!
Your guests will thank you for thinking about their comfort in advance. Consideration should be given to the type of chairs they’ll sit in, protection from the elements (both rain and sun) as well as concerns such as heating for evening fuctions. Nothing causes more stress to an event than unhappy guests. Ask your planner or rental providers for ideas on how to improve their comfort and experience.
In you need plumbing done, you call the plumber; a new deck, you call the handyman; to sell your house, you hire the realtor. Why? Because you understand that they know their trade and can help to avoid problems and issues before they happen. Planning your wedding is no different. Some couples manage to create amazing weddings for themselves but most success stories have spent endless hours of research and planning to the last detail. Since not all of us have the time to take this on or the apptitude to do it well, the use of a professional planner is worth consideration. They handle the details, reduce stress and often manage to get better use from your budget through industry connections.
