Under the Big Top
Attractive tents have your wedding covered
On your wedding day the only waterproofing you want to think about is your mascara. A tent is a must for an outdoor wedding, whether you are concerned about the weather, bugs, or simply want to create an intimate setting for your party.
Tent companies provide so much more than just the big top. In addition to the various tent styles that are now available, you also enjoy the benefit of climate control, lighting design, side panel options and custom flooring. Some companies even rent tables and chairs, linens, and important accessories like podiums, bars and more. No matter which tent you choose your event will be beautifully covered.
Specializes in beautiful, crisp white Sail Cloth tents in a wide array of sizes that will dazzle your guests. Instead of being concerned with finding decorations to hide the ugly rigging, these tents are a beautiful accessory all on their own. Their center poles are milled to look like wooden sailboat masts. Another signature look of the Sperry Tent is their pennants. Unfurled from each tent peak and waving in the breeze, these pennants are customizable in event-specific colors, shapes, images, or prints. Sperry Tents has a really cool application on their website that allows you to "Design Your Own Tent." You choose the tent size, table size and configuration. Please note that Sperry specializes in tents, custom flooring and lighting. For all other needs Sperry Tents will direct you to preferred companies that will provide table, chairs, linens and accessories.
Gorgeous high-end nautical style sail cloth tents, beautiful custom flooring, and lighting design. They keep their business intimate by not doing too many events in any given weekend. That way they can give each event their full attention.
For example, a simple tent for a 200 person wedding with a dance floor and a basic lighting package ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. The biggest variable is whether or not they install a custom built full-floor of Southern Yellow Pine to create a seamless New England farmhouse look.
Most events are booked 6 months to 1 year in advance. However, if you are planning a last minute event definitely contact them. If they have availability Sperry Tent will gladly cover your event.
