I’m in NEPA, so our weather is similar, but you probably are a little breezier near the ocean.  I think it can really go either way, BUT I would lean more on the side of not needing heaters.  I’m also doing the end of May, so I’m crossing my fingers for a sunny & warm afternoon for out ceremony & cocktail hour (dinner + dancing are indoors).

 

Can you possibly have a few heaters on stand-by in the off chance is DOES get chilly?  I would think you should be fine during the day, but maybe at night the temperatures might cool down a bit?  You would probably have a better idea of the temperature a week or so out from the event — maybe a rental place would let you cancel without (much) penalty?

@MichelleMS4:  HMMMmM I’m not familiar with that type of weather, but can you post the type of tent you are planning to use so I can get a better idea of what you are talking about?

 

I’m having a tented reception space and we are not planning on heaters or fans–but we are also in SD, so it is a tad bit different in terms of weather.

@MichelleMS4:  In that case, with 200 guests –my vote would be for no heaters! I’m sure they will be fine !

Hi, I’m also having a tent Wedding in May (but earlier, on the 10th). We’re getting married in the Poconos, and don’t plan on having heaters. So my vote is no, you probably won’t need the heaters.
