The big tent

NY, NJ and CT, Wedding Style & Decor


It doesn't get much more magical or romantic than an outdoor wedding reception, but a tented wedding can pose a long list of logistical difficulties that you didn't even know you'd have to worry about—like trucking in rentals, finding space for a dance floor, speakers, portable toilets, and outdoor kitchen facilities to name a few.

One of those details you might have overlooked is generators, but you'll want to since a non-stop droning noise throughout your wedding reception isn't the stuff that dreams are made of. So if you're hosting a tented wedding in the New York City area, I recommend checking out Spirit of the Sun Solar System, a 3500 watt solar generator recently made available for rental.The Spirit of the Sun uses solar energy to run, so not only is it totally silent, it's super eco-friendly.
