You could try dressing up your tent with classy, personal touches. Perhaps that chiffon would look better wrapped in white christmas-tree lights? Or you could hit up fabric stores on sale days and get your own fabric to line the frames. I personally think up-lighting can look very sophisticated and not circusy at all.

i agree with the pp. If it’s done right, uplighting and draping looks modern and classy!

However, is there any way your vision can come more in line with what your wedding plans are? Perhaps a tent alternative or a slightly different venue?

Good luck and best wishes!

I think its because once you start planning the event, you start to realize how few options you really have. I mean unless you have oodles of money to spend, people generally have a couple tried and true methods of getting things done for you. Which sucks if you’re like me… born rebel.

I am having a tent reception, but have to say tented receptions never really bothered me. But there are other wedding related things that seem so “cookie cutter” for lack of a better term, but I just can’t seem to get out of them. I feel your pain. I think its why brides obsess about details. Its the only way we can really put our unique and individual mark on it.

omg, i love tent parties.  i’ve been to so many fun and classy ones.  i’m sad that our venue doesn’t allow tents, actually.  there are so many fun ways to decorate them – i know you’ll figure out something beautiful!

We are having a tent with uplighting. It’s all in how you present it. It doesn’t have to be dramatic or clubby at all. You could pic a nice pastel color that goes with your motif

Or you could embrace the theme and hand out glow sticks!
