There’s something I want badly, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I desparately need everyone’s help! I put a post in the classifieds about it too…
What I’m looking for is a black or metal-color gazebo that can be set up indoors. My reception hall has a very high ceilling and double doors at the entrance, so bringing a gazebo inside shouldn’t be a problem. What’s going to be hard is getting one of these in black or metal, since most of them are white!
The picture below shows what I’m trying to recreate. Notice there’s a square gazebo in the background with a cake table under it. I’d really be happy with any shape gazebo, as long as it’s black/metal and can fit a cake table under it.
My wedding is taking place in southern Wisconsin, so if anyone knows a rental place in Milwaukee/Chicago/Madison that might have this, please please let me know! [attachment=856675,107273]

Have you checked at home improvements stores in their garden departments or online? Home Depot? Lowes? Also, Target and Walmart?

I am having fun doing a bit of a search for you. I haven’t found a rental yet but :
Here is a pic of one available on amazon.com:
here is a reasonably priced smaller version that you could purchase if you are unable to find anything else.

@jodrynrose: I had checked Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart, but not Home Depot and Lowe’s. Thanks for the tip; I’ll check those two stores.
@julies1949: Wow I really like that second gazebo you found! I could always spray paint it black. Ooh decisions decisions.

Apparently what I’m looking for is called a “pergola.” Ooh I wish this one fit into my budget!

That’s actually a pretty fair price for a pergola that size.
Have you thought about purchasing it and selling it after the wedding?
Maybe a rental company in your area might be interested?

I wish I could have my wedding in st johns atrium! Its near by me.. Ahh…
I am getting a gazebo from a flower place. See if flower shops have them for rent! We are getting outs for like, $200 and getting married under it, then they take it down and set it back up inside, (we will then have our little table under it, with lights..)
So look into the flower shops!
