Guide to Wedding, Event & Party Tent Rental

When you’re trying to book a party, wedding, or maybe even a professional event, it’s very important you consider locations and options of where you can host it. Of course, you can pay extensive and outrageous rental prices for special occasions to be hosted in a building, but why do that when you can throw a tent up? In this guide, we’ll tell you how to rent a special tent that can help you host your party or event outside, but still have the luxuries of being indoors, since many people love being outside.

What Kind of Tents Can I Rent?

First off, there are multiple types of tents that are available. You want to try to consider the amount of space your crowd is going to need in order to not only have comfortable seating arrangements, as well as have the proper lighting and furniture (and any other decorative or important elements, such as a speaker space, and more) in order to host not only a good event, but one that everyone can enjoy. If you’re looking for a particular style, you might want to choose from the common options:

  • 20’ x 20’ Canopy-style tent
  • 20’ x 20’ Frame Tent
  • 20’ x 30’ Frame Tent
  • 20’ x 40’ High Peak Tent
  • 40’ x 40’ Pole Tent
  • 40’ x 60’ Pole Tent
  • 40’ x 80’ Pole Tent
  • 40’ x 1000’ Pole Tent

Each of these styles are completely different, and they are all supported in different ways. A canopy style tent is usually a basic canopy and offers basic coverage with a few support beams to hold it up around the outsides. A frame tent is generally used for larger events and weddings, as it has more support beams across the top and is a canopy put over an actual frame. High peak tents are similar to a canopy tent, but they have no middle support at all, nor a frame other than the outside edges, and they can have decorations and a high center point.

Pole tents are another common tent option, and these have poles not only supporting the outside edges, but also a center pole for added support of the ceiling.

Are They Expensive?

While you may want to rent a tent, you may also want other things to go inside the tent. While many companies can easily offer you the option to have a tent style for rent, not all companies provide accessories, furniture, and tables which you can host your event with.

At the same time, the best companies can also provide you with decorations and accessories, including all of the previous items, and while they are at an additional price, they are often a lot cheaper to rent all of the items from a company rather than having to rent them or purchase all of the items individually. It’s also cheaper to host a party or wedding outdoors, and you can expect to pay less than you would for a high-profile wedding than renting a church or building in most cases.
