5 Important Layout Tips for Large Wedding Tents

Planning a tented wedding ceremony and reception offers a unique and enchanting atmosphere. Allowing you to celebrate your special day surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors. However, achieving the perfect layout for a large wedding tent requires careful consideration of various elements! To ensure both style and functionality throughout. Keep reading to explore five essential layout tips for large wedding tents, featuring custom solutions from Peak Party Tents.

1. Picking the Right Large Wedding Tents

Choosing the appropriate tent size and style is crucial for hosting a successful ceremony and reception. Consider the number of guests and whether you plan to seat them at reception tables during the ceremony. Peak Party Tents offers large wedding tents with elegant peaks, creating a sophisticated appearance. However, be mindful that tents with peaks require additional floor space due to supporting poles. If space is a concern, opt for a frame tent—an equally beautiful white wedding tent that maximizes available square footage.

2. Rent Enough Tables & Chairs

Ensuring that every guest has a comfortable seat and a designated place setting is paramount. Plan for a few extra tables and chairs to accommodate unexpected guests who may have RSVP’d past your preferred date. You can always feature round or rectangular tables, depending on your preference or the allotted space. Or a mix of both, for a more eye-catching layout! Strike a balance between providing ample seating and leaving enough room for guests to move around and mingle freely. Explore different chair styles, such as gold Chiavari chairs for a luxurious touch or folding chairs for a more relaxed atmosphere.

3. Save Room for Climate Control

Weather can be unpredictable, so it’s essential to plan for climate control options within your tent. Tent heaters and fans are practical additions but require space. Even more so if you will require a BTU heater, versus a sprinkle of portable heaters or wall-mounted fans. Factor in accessories like tent siding for protection against rain or less-than-ideal weather conditions. Ensuring guests have enough room while staying comfortable should be a priority!

4. Create a Spacious Bar Area

The wedding bar is a focal point of celebration, and its layout is crucial for a seamless flow of guests – even in large wedding tents. Allocate plenty of space for the bar area to prevent overcrowding due to long lines. Instead, consider featuring two bars instead to distribute the masses efficiently. To encourage socializing, and pull people away from the bar, you might also place bistro tables nearby. Plan to create ample space in any similar high-traffic areas, like self-serve drink or dessert stations.

5. Don't Forget the Dance Floor!

A well-designed dance floor is essential for guests to let loose and enjoy the celebration. Be careful to incorporate the size of the dance floor into your overall tent layout. This will ensure that it doesn’t get crowded with reception tables, or that tables get pushed into the walls. This space will become a hotspot after sunset, providing relief for those in uncomfortable shoes and creating a lively atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

By following these five tips for large wedding tents, you can create a layout that seamlessly blends style and functionality.
