Creating a Backup Plan

Unfavorable weather can certainly put a damper on a wedding, but if you’ve got a good backup plan in place there’s really nothing to worry about! Check out a few of our quick tips for creating a Plan B:

  • Not enough indoor space – tents are the best bet if your venue can’t accommodate an indoor event. Speak with your onsite contact to see if this is something that can be rented in-house, or if they have preferred contacts.
  • Don’t forgo side walls on a tent – these help keep the rain out and the heat in {for winter events}.
  • Consider the season – think about bringing in fans for hot/humid summer weather, or space heaters if it’s chilly outside. For summer events, feature a fun beverage station with chilled water and lemonade {and maybe a gourmet coffee bar for the winter months}.
  • Set aside a contingency fund – if a tent is needed, it’s important that you set aside money for extras {lighting, walls, draping, etc.} since tents are basic structures.
