Wedding Tent Trends For Summer 2017

Location, Location, Location

Wedding tents turn just about any location into a suitable venue for your weddings. Tents can be pitched somewhere as informal as a backyard or in a majestic place with breathtaking views. No matter where the tent is set-up, the type of tent and the way it is decorated can set the mood for the entire wedding ceremony and reception. Read on for tent tips and trends for the 2017 wedding season.


Tent fabric can range from translucent to opaque. Tent fabric should be selected based on proximity to beautiful views and the predicted weather for that location. For a homey feel, opaque tents make the room feel smaller and more intimate. This can be nice for a large wedding in a colder climate. For a breezy, airy feel, open walls, or translucent tents can make a small tent feel bigger and will feel cooler on a warm day. 


Now that you have your fabric and location picked out, a decorative theme for your tent should be chosen. For great ideas, look to home decor trends for 2017 and 2018 before making a decor choice. The tent can incorporate these trends to feel fresh, rather than like every other wedding this year. The best decor for trends for 2017 are:


The color of the year is "Greenery" which is a bright grassy green. Greenery looks stunning with white and cream, making it a perfect accent for an outdoor spring or summer wedding. Butterflies also made a huge comeback this year. Butterfly cut-outs climbing the wall or hanging from the ceiling will make a beautiful statement. For added panache, consider releasing butterflies at the end of the wedding ceremony. Portable trees and plants can also add a wonderful touch to a botanical themed tent.


This is a more sophisticated take on a barn wedding. Think a wood kitchen in an old farmhouse. Instead of round tables and chairs, long wood farm style tables should be used. To keep the look more bohemian than country, use wildflowers as centerpieces, and large chandelier hanging from the ceiling. 


Brightly colored patterned rugs can be thrown onto the floor and succulents can adorn each table. Think old wood and turquoise accents. Cacti in pots can also be brought in. 

Whatever theme is chosen for your tent, just remember to look to home decor trends for some of your finest inspiration. Be bold. Think color, plants, lights, and patterns.

About Me
Having Fun Planning Your Own Wedding

My name's Melissa. Welcome you to my website. I’m so excited to share about my wedding. My husband Jack and I got married five months ago. We planned our entire wedding by ourselves. It wasn’t that we didn’t have parents, family, or friends that wanted to help. In fact, they were all begging to help but we wanted to do this on our own. Before embarking on the wedding planning, we made one promise to each other. That promise was simply, "no stress." Sound impossible? We thought it might be because we had heard numerous times how stressful planning a wedding can be. We had a blast! If something started to get a bit touchy, we found a way to turn it around and make it a fun adventure. I’m going to tell you how we did it, and I hope you will be able to do the same. Enjoy!
