Planning an Outdoor Wedding

If an outdoor wedding is the stuff of dreams for you, but stormy weather gives you nightmares, then consider the following tents for your back-up plan.  You don’t have to settle for plain-vanilla tents when planning outdoor weddings. There are exotic and unique designs to satisfy all kinds of wedding styles.

From the Pavilion Tent Company, we have the Indian-style tents with arched cutouts, as seen above and below. They can also line the inside of the tent with colored fabric such as this brilliant red, providing instant sophistication to the setting. Tassels can also be added to the edges of the tent for a whimisical touch!

If you don’t want to block your guests’ view of the incredible outdoor setting of your wedding, consider using a clear see-through tent.  Whether it’s a majestic mountain lake setting or a sleek city skyline, these Clear Span tents from Starr Tent will frame the outdoors perfectly.

Wow all the places are so romantic.
I live in Rotterdam and I work in a beautiful museum, where they also give weddings.
We have a nice garden where we can place tents like these above. It's so nice to give people the most wonderfull wedding they deserve.

I like outdoor weddings and I always suggest it to the others who are looking to get marriage and want to make their marriage day special. We are also offering the same services like weddings in Lake Como Italy. Lake Como is one of the most beautiful places and famous for Italian weddings.

I like your post and I want to share some information about this type of weddings through my website.
