Planning an outdoor event at a beautiful venue? Whether you’re hosting an outdoor wedding on the beach, a private event on the banks of a river, a festival in a magical forest, a corporate function on top of the mountain overlooking the city or on a fancy wine estate – you’re going to need to protect your guests or delegates from the elements, which is where tents come to the rescue. But choosing the right tent is never easy.

If your tent doesn’t complement your event, it can easily lose impact, which means that your choice must not only inspire your guests, but it must also make the entire experience an unforgettable one. While you can’t pick your weather, you can certainly pick your tent. Here are the top 3 tents ideal for weddings, corporate events, expos, private events and even festivals.

#1 Peg and Pole Marquee Tents

If you’re looking for a less expensive and more aesthetically pleasing option, then peg and pole marquee tents are going to be a hit. Traditional marquees that have been relied upon for many years, peg and poles boast a swooping roof with poles that hold the tent in the required shape. While peg and pole tents have no frame to cover up and do not require a liner, they do however have centre pole obstructions and will require a clearance on all sides for stakes and anchor ropes (on average five to eight feet on each side). Widely celebrated with outdoor weddings and private functions, these tents almost bring a sense of security and comfort for those who use it.

#2 Frame Tents

Contemporary and sophisticated, frame tents are typically celebrated for their “A” shape design when erected. Easily erected on just about any surface, the aluminium frame design has a “clear span”, which enables the structure to stand without using the traditional peg and pole method. A little pricier than peg and pole tents, but unlike pole tents, they have no pegs on the outside and no poles on the inside. This gives the client more usable space inside the tent, as there are no pole obstructions. One of the greatest benefits of this type of tent is that it can be attached together, which means that you have more options when it comes to shape/configuration. While this tent type requires a much longer set-up time, it can be left up for a few days, making it ideal for festivals, concerts and expos.

#3 Bedouin Freeform Stretch Tents

An inspired tent style that has been perfected with modern technology – Bedouin tents are able to transform ordinary venues into spectacular spaces that will allow for a breathtaking backdrop. Flexible and quick to assemble, this is a tent that will allow you to set up an event on almost any terrain. Popular with weddings, corporate parties, product launches and special private parties – designs are simply endless when hiring this type of tent for your event. Not only can it be used in various shapes and sizes, but it can also be either fully open or partially closed. From organic sculpted shapes to curvaceous forms – Bedouin tents can also be attached to other tents or fixed structures to create extra space if required.
