The Prettiest Outdoor Wedding Tents We've Ever Seen

Steal these gorgeous ideas for your outdoor celebration.
by Andrea Fowler

Outdoor tents come in all shapes and sizes—in other words, they’re totally customizable. Deck out a clear-top tent with textured fabric drapings, rent colorful tie-backs to coordinate with your wedding color palette, you can even chose the exact table layout you want and where the dance floor should be.

Make sure to coordinate everything with your venue, planner and rental vendor so there aren’t any details that fall through the cracks for the perfect outdoor wedding. They can help recommend the right weatherproofing extras (like heating lamps in the fall or fans in the summer), decor items to round out the theme and logistical items like the correct type of floor installation. Here are some of our favorite wedding tents that are the perfect balance between wedding venue and sophisticated party space.
