I definitely second the recommendation to read the Wedding Bee Pro posts – very helpful!

We are tentatively planning a tented reception. I am not 100% on board because this June was so HOT and I am not convinced a tent will be enough to keep our guests comfortable during our brunch reception.

I don’t have much advice because we are very early on in the planning process, but there is a lot of information out there on the Internet! Also, don’t feel like you have to figure it all out yourselves. My mom met with a rental consultant and said she was amazed by her knowledge. The experts will be able to answer your questions.

Good luck!

I looked at tents… and the one I could rent to hold 300-400 people was $2000… I thought that was a little high.  Luckily, our reception venue is an historic home and has a HUGE old barn that they use for weddings etc… so we can use that if it rains!

Tents can get expensive.  Our rental costs (which was the best least expensive I could find) is around $3k –

There was a real bee budget feature on ‘rentals’ recently where I broke down all the costs – or you can PM me.

We’re renting a tent. A 40’x60′ 150 person white tent is costing us $950. The 20×20 caterer’s tent is going to be $325. We got all our other rentals from another place for about $850 total. This includes the tables, chairs, real china dinner plates, cake plates, real silverware, champagne glasses, wine glasses, linen tablecloths and napkins, set up and delivery fees and gratuity. The reception venue was $50 to rent. We haven’t figured in the cost of the dance floor yet because we haven’t decided if we actually need one. There is a raised square gazebo at our site which would work well for dancing… so we shall see!

 We’re pretty happy with this deal ^__^
