Tent 101: What you should know!

Tents are in! We sat down with our industry rep, Jason Desaulniers with Party Reflections, and discussed all things tents and the need to knows when planning for your special day!

Q: What are some must-knows when talking about tents?

A: Some basics to know would be the three different tent styles and their specific materials and key details. There is the sailcloth tent, the pole tent, and the frame tent.

A sailcloth tent features a canvas material similar to sailcloth from a boat.

A pole tent is similar to a sailcloth tent but uses shine vinyl.

A-frame tent uses metal frames rather than poles to support and can use white or clear material.
