- Wedding: May 2011
We are planning a tented reception at my fiance’s parents’ house just outside of Denver. Does anyone have advice who has done a tented wedding? We are trying to go without a wedding planner until day of because of cost, but the rentals are a bit daunting… We are having approx. 250 people for a seated family-style dinner. We’ll also have a dance floor and band, and would like to have an area for cocktails. Does anyone who has done something similar have advice about tent size, ballpark cost of rentals, etc?
If in Denver, did you use a company you were really happy with or is there a company you would not recommend?
Some companies have said they charge over $1000 for insurance. Is that normal?? What about delivery charges – I’ve seen estimates over $300 – is that reasonable? Also, decor companies have quoted me around $5000 for draping fabric in the tent and a rental company quoted me around $2500 for twinkle lights in the tent – is that how much it typically costs??
Any advice is much appreciated!!! Thanks!
