I believe most places will allow you to put one a hold- so if in the event ( fingers crossed ) you do need it it will be on stand by, you – or someone- just calls them and says ok your gonna use it. It’s just as a precaution, and I don’t think they make you pay much to have one as a backup plan, but I’m not sure about where you live. Maybe just see about that. But , as nerve racking as I could only imagine this must be for you, if it were me I’d go with what your man is saying.. It don’t sound like your gonna get rained out. But as I said, if it’s worrying you, I know you can call and say you just looking for a backup plan.

i wanted to tell you to call around, because some places will let you put a tent on hold with no deposit up until like the day before. So you’d be able to just call the day before & either say thanks but I don’t need it, or yes I’m gonna go with it and from there you pay. Other places may just charge a small fee for doing this. It’s worth making a few calls

good luck

sierra22:  I think you should have the tent on standby.  You can make the call abotu actually using it on Saturday morning but I think spending the 1k to have it just in case is better than risking it and having soggy guests.

I think that you need to have the tent ready. While it may not rain, what if it does? Your guests are absolutely wet and soaked. I would imagine people will get out of there so quickly and your wedding can end abruptly.

Do it – then you won’t have to worry about your wedding being ruined.

I’m sure you’ve heard of intellicast.com before, but if not — check your weather there. It is the most detailed hourly graphing of the weather by zip code that I could find leading up to our big day.

I wouldn’t take the chance.  TBH I think it’s really selfish of you to risk having your guests be soaking wet because you want to hold on to your “vision”.  I would not be happy if I were a guest at your wedding and you didn’t have a rain plan in place.  You can probably have the tent on hold and then decide not to use it last minute, they will keep whatever deposit you put down but you can still keep your vision and some of your money.  Not trying to be rude but you knew this was a risk when you planned an outdoor wedding, so it’s up to you to make sure everyone stays dry.
