    The problem is that the tent will provide shade for your guests, not just protection from rain. There are several styles of event tents, maybe you could find one that you dont mind and if it’s nice out that day, you could set up most of your tables outside the tent, but have some under the shade of the tent for those who are sensitive to heat and sun exposure. I know that’s not what you want to hear, but I think your guests will appreciate an option for shade. Also, it will keep your food and some of your flowers fresher since they wont have to sit out in the sun.

    As long as you keep the tent open with no sides, I’m sure your guests will still get to appreciate the views of the garden, especially if some tables are out of the tent – depending on the sizes, you could even move the dance floor out of the tent if there is no rain that day – that would ensure that your guests leave the tent and circulate around the garden.

    If you’re wedding is at night, then the tent might be optional – or you might consider a clear top tent (personally, I love those!) As much as you dont love the idea of a tent, I would hate for you to be stuck with the cost of replacing the dance floor!
