Finding the Perfect Wedding Tent Draping

When you ask most people what the happiest days of their life were, the lists are fairly similar. Graduation, landing a big promotion, the birth of their children, and the day they got married. When you are in the process of planning your wedding day, you want your special day to be just that: special. As simple as it may seem, a tent alone can add a special spark to your wedding day. If you take it one step further, finding the perfect wedding tent draping  can make it truly spectacular.

Wedding Tent Draping

Draping Ideas for your Wedding Tent

At Grand Central Party Rentals, we offer a wide variety of tents that meet any wedding day need. This time of year as the weather turns crisp and brisk, a tent can add warmth and comfort to cool daytime and evening events. They are also 100% customizable. So, while you may order the exact same tent as your best friend did four years ago, you can totally transform the inside into a bridal paradise that perfectly encompasses your personal love story.

Frame Tents

The nice thing about draping a frame tent is its name: the frame. This tent doesn’t have a center pole, which means that you can stand at one end of the tent and see to the other without anything blocking your view. We love these tents because they can be covered in fabric or have a clear top. You can hang anything from lace to burlap to tulle along the frame and drape it from one end of the tent to the other. If you choose the clear top option, this can add a dreamy, almost Gatsby-like feel to your wedding. Your guests will feel the elegance of the draped fabric, while still being able to see the stars. You can also hang fabric so that it acts like curtains around the frame of the tent. This can add warmth on cool nights. It can also be drawn back as the night progresses to give an indoor/outdoor garden party feel.

Pole Tents

Pole tents are just what they sound like: fabric tents held up by a center pole. Because these tents can be so big (up to 9,000 square feet of space), you can mimick the pole in the center of tent by allowing your draping to hang almost to the ground to mimic the center pole. Also, these tents have a high peaked center, which means that any draped fabric will add to the height and airy feeling of the tent. Adding fabric to these tents is another way to add your favorite accent colors without putting extra money into your flower budget, which can be a big win financially. We love these tents for large weddings, or for events that need to have several different spaces, as they allow ample room for tables, catering, and dance floors. Using different types of draping can signal to your guests that the tent is meant to have different areas.

Marquee Tents

Marquee tents are especially good for wowing your guests and creating designated spaces throughout your event. For example, if you want a large pole tent for dining, and a clear-topped frame tent for dancing, we can use a marquee tent to connect the two together. As marquee tents are not very wide, they do not require quite as much fabric as the pole or frame tents. That doesn’t mean they are not fun to drape! Adding fabric ‘doors’ and ‘curtains’ to show off your original style.

The Fun Stuff

Okay, so to be fair, drapery and fabric is not the only way to make your wedding tent truly special. String lights, fixtures, chandeliers, and other hanging accoutrements can add special touches that will truly make your tent your own. Not to mention, we have tables, chairs, linens, flatware, the list is endless, to make your wedding day dreams come true.
