Bring a timeless elegance to your tented wedding by opting for all-white décor! White weddings are an excellent choice year-round, but particularly bring that classic feel to an outdoor tent. Set the tone for a romantic evening with beautiful chiffon draping, coupled with white string lights or chandeliers to set the tone! As day turns to night, tealights are an excellent way to bring a warm glow that compliments your white floral centerpieces.

Beautiful chandeliers add timeless elegance and set the decorative tone for your tented wedding. Unlike with a fixed venue, you can choose the chandeliers that best suit your celebration for a totally custom touch. Garland-rimmed chandeliers add striking greenery to bohemian-inspired setups, and floral-wrapped chandeliers perfectly complement a lovely rustic reception.

For a classic look to complete your luxurious wedding reception, check out the stunning Moyer Marquee at Sue Ann Staff Winery. The pristine white tent gives a clean, upscale feel to any reception, and the opulent crystal chandeliers complete the picture of pure elegance. Permanent stone flooring allows you and your guests to dance the night away against a backdrop of sweeping vineyards.

Whether you choose classic or trendy arrangements, florals boost the beauty of any winery wedding venue, and with a tented wedding, they’re an essential piece of décor that makes your setting unique and augments your chosen style or theme.

Garlands give a whimsical vibe, along with floral arches. For more eclectic décor, you can even add less conventional decorations to your arrangements, such as feathers or succulents. Floral walls are a popular option for tented weddings because they provide a lovely visual feature for your unwalled reception, and as a bonus, serve as a stunning backdrop for photographs.

One of the best things about utilizing a tent for your wedding is getting the vibe of an outdoor wedding while enjoying the benefits of indoor amenities. Embrace the outdoor setting during the fall season by adding warm colours to your wedding. Pair whites, reds, oranges and greenery with elegant wood tables and chairs to achieve the rustic setting that you’ve been dreaming of. Take it one step further by opting for a large harvest head table to achieve the ultimate bohemian-style venue.

Weddings tents are an excellent match for bohemian-style weddings, particularly one with open sides that let your guests take in the landscape. The Pondview Terrace at Bella Terra Vineyards provides you with the lush greenery of the surrounding vineyards, along with stunning views of the nearby pond, to dazzle your guests with beautiful scenery.
