So you’ve decided on an outdoor tented wedding, but what kind of tent will you select? It used to be that there was only one or two tent styles to choose from, making the choice relatively easy. These days, however, there are many more options available making things a little more confusing.
To help you with your decision, we’ve rounded up 10 of the different types of tents available for your big day, from the traditional to the truly unique.
1. Pole Tent
The pole tent, as its name suggests, is supported by poles and guy-wires and has a big showy top with one or more peaks. Beautiful and elegant, it is a truly sophisticated choice. Since pole tents must be staked into the ground, however, they cannot be set up on concrete or other hard surfaces, making them less versatile than some other types of tents.
We think any excuse to go to Paris is a good one! And for Davina and Kyle, eloping was as good an excuse as any. Not only did they get to say their ‘I do’s’ in one of the most romantic cities in the world, they did it in style.
Both the bride and the groom looked absolutely stunning as they exchanged their vows in a truly intimate ceremony in front of the beautiful Palais Royale.
While their Paris elopement may have included just the two of them, that didn’t stop them from sharing their joy and celebrating and with family and friends once they returned home.

One dress isn’t always enough. If you can have two gorgeous wedding dresses, why not? Even if you’re having an intimate wedding, a second dress is a great way to have a more informal dress for your reception. If you’re eloping and having a reception at a later date, then having two dresses to fit in with the separate occasions is also a great idea. A different reception dress not only gives you the chance to enjoy a night of dancing and dining, but also gives you the ability to show off a different look.
When it’s time to think about the design of your wedding menu, go beyond fancy calligraphy and think of creative ways to make your menu to stand out. By creating an impressive menu you can keep your guests intrigued (and occupied) until their food arrives. There’s an abundance of innovative options to choose from and a small detail like this will have a big impact on your overall look.
A multipurpose menu is a great way to go; it saves room on the table and checks two boxes. You can have your menu printed on a brown paper bag or muslin bag and place bread or cutlery inside. Having your menu on the wine bottles will also serve as a nice keepsake too. Likewise, a printed menu around your napkins is a contemporary and effective idea.
