Are Tent Weddings Super Hot?!

It depends on what you mean by hot. I have been to several (in North Carolina) that have been miserably hot, but we’re talking 90 out and humid. If there’s no breeze, the tent sort of traps the hot air. If it’s somewhere a bit breezy, it can be nice. There’s obviously no way to predict that. I once went to one that had fans, that was a great idea.

@VallieC:  It also depends on what kind of tent you get. I went to a college reunion in NJ earlier this summer — they had vinyl tents, which trapped the heat and humidity (even though the tent had no sidewalls!). For my own wedding, I’m going with sailcloth tents (look up Sperry Tents), which are really cool-looking, weather-resistant, and best of all, they’re breathable!

I’ve been to one in TX and one in PA. Both in the summer and both sweltering hot. The issue was circulation: there was none, as only one side of the tent had been left open. If out of 4 sides, you put the sides up on 2, it would help tremendously.
