Hey Ladies. Fiance and I really wanted a relaxed backyard/tent wedding reception but after looking into it we are starting to realize how much work is involved. I haven’t been to a tent wedding since I was little so I guess I don’t really remember any pro’s and con’s to it. Has anyone attended or had their own reception in a tent recently and can give me a honest opinion on whether its worth it or not? Any surprising troubles pop up that you can pass on?
ps. we live up in Canada and the weather can be a little unpredictable, even in the summer nights sometimes get chilly

We are having a tented reception but I can’t really help you, the tent is actually a permenant fixture at the venue we are getting married at. The venue provides heaters, however if it is hot that might be a problem. But you already seem to be considering the weather 🙂
I hope you get some good advice!

I just went to a wedding (in Maine) that had a tent and let me tell you, I got eaten alive by the stupid mosquitoes! The Maid/Matron of Honor told me she had sprayed at least three times and still, I was covered in bites (as was everyone else). And I’m allergic, so I had a pretty miserable couple of days after that. If there are any bugs in your area I would definitely recommend the indoor reception! A number of people left early because they couldn’t take it anymore.
