Looking for a wedding tent? Frequently asked questions get answered

1. What’s the difference between a frame tent and a pole tent?

Frame Wedding Tent
20×60 Frame Tent
A frame tent is supported by a metal frame “skeleton” with the tent top secured over it. It’s typically weighted down by water barrel weights. It provides an expansive interior space unencumbered by center poles. This type of wedding tent is ideal to set up on asphalt or where staking into the ground is not permitted.
Pole Wedding Tent
40×60 Pole Tent
A pole tent is supported by exterior and interior poles with the tent top stretched and secured by staking into the ground. It provides dramatic peaks and sweeping interiors. This type of tent is ideal in an outdoor setting where staking in the ground is permitted. If the area is irrigated, sprinkler lines must be marked prior to installation to prevent damage to the irrigation system.

2. What’s the benefit of using a wedding tent vs. a traditional venue?

There are many benefits to choosing a tent over a traditional venue. It allows you to fully customize the floor plan and look of your wedding. You can choose everything from the lighting, dance floor, tables and chairs, and interior draping colors. You can get as elaborate as you want or opt for a simple design. With a wedding tent you can have the complete freedom to have your wedding when you want, how you want, and where you want.

4. What are some additional considerations?

Restrooms: Does your outdoor location provide restrooms? If not, there are plenty of options! Consider using trailer restrooms with running water and flushing toilets. You can include a basket in each of the restrooms with toiletries such as mouthwash and hairspray to keep your guests looking and feeling their best.

Parking: Is there parking available at the location or do you need to shuttle your guests in? We recommend Denver Party Bus for all of your transportation needs.
