I was wondering if I could get some thoughts/ideas for a Beach Reception. I’ve ordered a large tent, and am guessing that in July it will be sweltering, so was hoping to get some thoughts on the following:
a) Putting sides on all sides of the tent and renting portable a/c units to at least make it comfortable
b) Want to make it look natural, simple, yet elegant inside without spending a lot of money. Our colors are green/white, and it is very casual.
c) Any thoughts on rose petals in bulk?

Putting sides on the tent is a great idea during the day it will keep the worst of the sun off your guests. Portable a/c units may be tricky depending on what kind of electric juice you’ll be getting at your sight, there may be limits and portable a/c just eat up electricity. I would suggest having lots of iced and blended tropical drinks/coctails (virgen and original). I think keeping decor simple by making it color based is a great idea!! White and green will fresh and crisp. I’ve never purchased rose petals in bulk but the white ones may get brown at the edges after too much handling. Maybe you would want to stick to beach grass for shots of color?
Good luck your wedding sounds like so much fun.
