One thing you can't rent is the weather, but you can prepare for it. Outdoor weddings are absolutely beautiful and memorable as long as mother nature cooperates. Our suggestion is always to prepare for inclement weather and we will work with you for any last minute add-ons to help in the situation.
When it comes to custom installations either over a deck, patio or driveway...frame tents come to the rescue. Chicago Tent Rental has a variety of frame tent sizes and styles to get the job done. If you are looking to host your event right off your garages and on your driveway we can handle it. Take a look at this installation for a recent Hinsdale graduation tent party...we helped to expand their garages to cover the guests. So if you have a challenging tent installation give us a call and we'll be happy to stop by and give you a free consultation.
Tent rental in Chicago has a long history with some legendary tent companies like HDO, Partytime Productions, Big Top, Sun Shade, Industructo just to name a few from back in the day. HDO was always the leader and they date back to the 1960's...well times change and so do the players. Partytime who began in 1985 with a team of 2 forged forward to acquire HDO and became one of the largest tent companies in the nation with over 100 employees during the peak season. Fast forward to today and there are a bunch of new companies and tent rental in Chicago has expanded and become much more popular. Every company has their niche, targets a different market and runs their business the way they see fit. Some specialize in big festivals and don't worry too much about clean tents, some are set up to handle very large special events like major sporting events and use tents which are more like buildings and take months to go from set-up to take-down. There's also a variety of tent rental companies in Chicago that take care of the rest like weddings, grad parties, company picnics, etc. with a host of new company names. We call ourselves Chicago Tent Rental and we like to provide clean tents and great service for all the events we cover...we like the name because it's who we are and it's what we do and where we do it. If you're looking for Party Tents to rent in the Chicago area give us a call, we look forward to meeting you.
Party Tents Hinsdale - Whether you having a tent wedding or a graduation party there's usually a dress code for the guests or at least we like to think so, but what about the hired staff? When you hire a caterer be sure to ask what they crew will be wearing. You may assume they will be sporting bow ties but you might get T-shirt with the company logo on the back. Keep it in mind that is if you mind what they'll be wearing. Pictured in this shot is a crew that is "Dressed for Success" in our opinion, they served at a Chicago Tent Rental wedding event and were all sporting black aprons and more importantly "SMILES"!
After all your dog is family, so why wouldn't you invite them to the wedding? Well for one reason if your event is help indoors then most facilities do not allow pets inside, which is just another reason to have your wedding outside. Over the years we've seen dogs attending outdoor tented weddings more time than we can count on one paw. As long as your dog is well behaved, since you don't want them eating the cake before it's cut or barking so much that they take all the attention away from the bride, then why not? Of course we think the dog should be dressed for the occasion after all it's a wedding, here is a photo of a dog that attended an outdoor tented wedding at Katherine Legge's "The Lodge" and he literally out dressed most of the men at the event.
We literally get just as excited about small tent events as we do for large tented weddings. We understand each and every party is a celebration of friends and family and there will be memories made that will be locked in minds and captured in photos taken on that special day. Here is a perfect example of a 90th birthday party held under two 15 x 15 frame tents to block the sun and create an outdoor dining room room housing a long single banquet table. Though this party was on the small side of tenting it had just as much love and importance as any other tented event. The family decorated with the colors of the Italian flag, simple floral pieces and red checkered table cloths that reminded them of years past.
"This is how we hosted Italian dinners back in the day, out in the yard on a few long tables dragged out from the house" - Gina
Weddings sure have changed over the years...now here's a groom that's styling and smiling and wearing what he wants to! Heck it was an outdoor tented wedding on a warm summer day so why not wear shorts? The point is enjoy your day and don't worry what other people think. If you want to wear shorts as the groom...wear shorts, if you want to wear a tuxedo then have-at-it and if your feeling a tuxedo T-shirt well just make sure your bride is OK with it first. I know a bride that's getting married this summer as she's set on a black wedding dress (why not?)...remember it's your day, do it your way! You may just regret it otherwise.
Hinsdale, Illinois Tent Rentals - Tent Spot Light
Today we are highlighting a party that was hosted at an incredible historical home in downtown Hinsdale, IL for a Halloween/Dueling Pianos party. Chicago tent Rental was asked to tent the area just outside the back door to house two pianos, high top tables, heaters, cathedral side walls, string lights and of course a dance floor! The guest were able to travel from the main home into the 30 x 30 party tent through an all enclosed marquee tent. The party was catered by Taste of Home of Hinsdale and was the talk of the town as the guests sang their hearts away into the night all cozy on a chilly fall night.
As the saying goes rain on your wedding day is "good luck" and since it's out of your hands the best thing to do is smile and roll with it. You can always add additional tents and walkway marquees, but try to make it fun with a good attitude. Some of the things we've seen are ushers, ushering in the guests with large umbrellas or handing out umbrellas. You may want to keep an eye on the ring bearer as he may get a bit carried away in the puddles, but seriously take after him and enjoy yourself. be sure to take photos with the bridal party all holding umbrellas in the rain or a photo with just the lovely couple cuddling under one. Another tip is don't wait for it to rain to start your umbrella photos, if it looks like it's going to rain beat mother nature to the punch. - Good luck...you'll need it that is if it doesn't rain.! ;)
