The Ultimate Guide to Your Backyard Fall Wedding

The Ultimate Guide to Your Backyard Fall Wedding

tent rental MA

With wedding season well underway, the fall weddings are fast approaching.  One of the best features of hosting a fall wedding is the beautiful scenery that New England provides free of charge.  Whether you’re indoors or out, the backdrop is sure to impress!  However, if you are hosting a backyard event, there are a few things to consider beforehand.  Here at Rental Depot, we can provide the elements your wedding needs. From linens to tent rental in MA, we have your event rental needs covered.    


Consider Your Space

If you’re planning on a backyard wedding, one consideration to keep in mind is the space at hand.  If you’re envisioning a wedding with a large guest list and only have a small about of yard to work with, your plans may not work out as expected.  Be sure to work with the space at hand, or find a venue that can accommodate your wedding size.

Beyond the guest list, remember that you’ll need a spot for the ceremony.  Most weddings will have seating for their guests.  These chairs can be transferred to dining tables afterward. 


Account for the Weather

Because we live in New England and the weather can be unpredictable, preparing for any type of weather is crucial.  With the incorporation of a heated tent rental in MA, you can be sure your guests are comfortable and protected.  With the addition of doors, you can close in the reception area should Mother Nature provide your big day with rain or chilly air.

Often overlooked, having ample parking for your guests is a must.  If you’re limited on space, consider having your guests park at an available lot and rent a shuttle to transport them to and from.  A white trolley providing your guests with glasses of champagne could be the perfect beginning to a perfect day.


Remember Your Surroundings

Although it’s all about you today, your neighbors should still be considered.  With a quick knock on the door or phone call, informing them of the events of the day can help keep aggravations at bay.  This can also help in preparation for your ceremony.  For instance, if you live close to someone who tends to be noisy, they can perhaps keep it down during a specific timeframe, insuring your ceremony is uninterrupted.
