5 Reasons to Hire Sperry Tents for Your Outdoor Wedding

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

1. Because choosing a marquee for hire takes just as much consideration as choosing a venue.

It is vital to choose a wedding marquee wisely. Remember, it is your principal backdrop: it will feature prominently in your wedding photos and deserves just as much thought as you would give to assessing an indoor venue. Since the first one was designed and made by founder Steve Sperry 20 years ago, Sperry Tents were an immediate game changer in the event industry, setting a whole new bar for marquee elegance. If you want guests to ooh and ahh over your marquee, then give us a call!

2. Because a marquee wedding is the ultimate blank slate.

When you choose an outdoor wedding under a Sperry Tent, you don't have to worry about that ugly ballroom rug. Or those gold drapes on Palladian windows. Or those random tourists who aren't part of your reception. A marquee reception allows you to get married in your own backyard, at your family's summer home, or on the grounds of your favorite museum, preserved garden, or historic estate. If you can dream it, we can make it happen. 

3. Because you can get creative with different marquee "destinations."

Thanks to our wide range of marquee for hire sizes, from small rounds to large squares and ovals - all equally elegant, with matching ivory sailcloth - there are many creative ways to employ Sperry Tents for your big day. Here are just a few ideas: a kids' marquee filled with art supplies, candy treats, and bean bags; a cocktail marquee with illuminated marquee letters, high-top tables, and a live jazz trio; a welcome marquee with an escort card display, beer on ice, and signature cocktails on tap; a cigar-rolling marquee, with bonus whiskey tasting station. So much possibility!

4. Because connecting with the great outdoors is your favorite activity.

Whether you and your betrothed are boaters, skiers, hikers, or even bird watchers, it makes sense to honor your connection to nature with an outdoor wedding. A reception under a Sperry Tent offers the best of both worlds: protection from the elements but also proximity to the surrounding landscape. And don't forget to encourage guests to move beyond the confines of a marquee with games (croquet, anyone?), lawn furniture (Adirondack chairs are comfy), boat cruises, and golf cart rides. The more guests interact with the outdoor setting, the more memorable your big day will be.

5. Because pulling off a seamless outdoor wedding takes experience.

Planning an outdoor wedding involves a lot of moving parts, and is not unlike building a venue from scratch one day and then taking it down the next. You'll need an experienced marquee for hire professional on your side through the whole process, from the initial site check to the final takedown. Together, we can plan for: rain, power usage for the marquee and other vendors, lighting choices inside the marquee and out, catering facilities, party rental deliveries, and extreme temperatures. And if your wedding date falls in a popular month, contact us early to ensure all your desired equipment is reserved well in advance.

If you're recently engaged, congratulations! We look forward to making your wedding a momentous occasion. Please contact us for a complimentary quote or site check.
