@crisaquarius24:  $400 isn’t bad for a tent.  Hopefully it won’t rain so it won’t be an issue.  But it sounds like this is your only backup plan so you’re kind of stuck and guests will care more about being dry than being able to see the villa.

I did a tented wedding. Wedding was on Sunday. Tent was set up on Friday. So my plan was to wake up early Friday morning and cancel the tent if there was 0 chance if rain. But, when Friday  came around, there wasa good chance of rain, so we did the tent. It was great.

Things to think about. If you don’t have a tent, how will you hang the lights? Also, all tents really need to be staked securely to the ground. So if you do two 10 x 20 tents you will not only have poles in the middle, but also all the tie downs and stakes. And rain would come into the slit between the two tents. So I’d recommend one big tent.

@crisaquarius24:  If I were you I would consider a frame tent. It is more costly than a pole tent but they do not have poles in the middle, they also have frame tents with clear tops, if you need sides you can get window sides as well. Even if you get a canopy tent you can still get one with the window style sides and not put them on if it’s not supposed to rain. I would not get two of those tents and put them together. There will be ropes and stuff in the middle.


We are getting a large tent 60 by 40 and will be getting married under it if it is going to rain. If it doesn’t rain we will get married outside and have the reception under our tent, this will make everything so much more comfortable for our guests not having them out in the sun with bugs and stuff even if it is not raining. For my wedding I want to have a backup plan so my FH and I can be as stress free as possible on the day!


Hope this helps a litte?

Good luck!! 🙂
