Choose a Tent

Continued (page 2 of 2)

Century Tent
A century tent is structured the same way as a pole tent (with interior supports), but its ceiling has a more dramatic, swooping look, reminiscent of a circus tent. Some designers opt to add festive flags or pennants to the tops of the poles.

Connecting Canopies
Tented weddings should include connecting canopies, which can be used to cover walkways to keep guests dry in inclement weather (from the main tent to the restrooms, for example), and that waitstaff will use when serving food.
