10 Stunning Wedding Tent Ideas

Outdoor weddings in Chicago are gorgeous and risky. The Windy City is full of outdoor wedding venues with stunning scenery—and the heat, humidity, and rain that can put a damper on a wedding day. (And don’t forget those annoying insects!)

A wedding tent is the perfect plan B (and plan A) that gives guests refuge from the unpredictable Chicagoland weather. It can also provide an intimate party, separate different wedding areas (i.e. ceremony area, dinner, dance floor, bar, etc.), and create an unforgettable wedding atmosphere. Modern tents come in styles that can fit your guest list and your unique style (contact a pro to choose the right tent for your special day). For interior wedding tent decor, use these unforgettable wedding tent ideas to create your own special day.

Heavenly Dance Floor

A dance floor is a stage; make sure your stage is a beautiful setting for memorable moments and for busting a move. A proper stage floor can also have a practical purpose, especially when guests aren’t getting their heel stuck in the turf (or sand!).

Green Touches

For a more natural flair, bring elements of the outdoors in and coordinate with natural wedding tent décor. The beauty of this design is that décor doesn’t always need to match, just coordinate for a natural and well-designed wedding style.

Room with a View

A wedding venue with a beautiful view is a horrible thing to waste, which is why clear sidewalls can be a godsend. Not only can guests enjoy the view, these panels can keep away those pesky insects that can put a damper on a big day.
