Having a 220 guest tent wedding in the Hamptons. One tent guy I spoke with told me I wouldn’t need a TPA (temp place of assemb) permit, I would just need a tent permit. Is anyone familiar with permits needed for a wedding this size on a private estate?
I’m a little nervous about permits bc I think permits mean people (like fire marshalls) come in to check and I don’t want to be told I can’t have votives on my tables or chandeliers hanging from the ceiling or I have to change my table layout for easier exit access.
Obviously I want everyone to be safe, but I’ve had some experiences with fire marshalls checking things and they can be a bit over the top sometimes.
Does anyone have any experience with this part of the process?
