When it comes to wedding tents, there are quite a number of styles you can choose from but the most common ones are frame tents and pole tents. These are the easiest to find and most wedding vendors including A Finetouch Ltd can provide them for your special day.
There are three different things you need to look at when choosing a wedding tent; your budget, space logistics and aesthetics. With that in mind, we are going to look into frame and pole tents and why you should choose one over the other.
Frame tents are known for their rigid framework of steel poles with angled joints. This is what differentiates them from pole tents.
The first advantage of using frame tents is that they can be erected on any surface. No matter where your wedding will be taking place, you can rely on these tents.
Frame tents do not have center poles and so do not have any obstructions. This means that you can use the space to its maximum and not have to worry about your guests knocking down the tent when walking around.
Frame tents have more configuration options as they can easily be attached together. This means that you can transform your wedding to match what you had imagined.
The biggest disadvantage of frame tents is that they tend to be a bit more expensive compared to pole tents. If you have a tight budget, you may want to avoid them.
Frame tents also require a long time to set up which means they could delay your décor setup.
As opposed to frame tents, pole tents have poles in the middle with ropes and stakes driven into the ground.
The biggest advantage of pole tents is that they are affordable. This makes them perfect for those with a tight wedding budget.
Pole tents are also aesthetically pleasing when compared to frame tents. These are the tents with swooping roofs and are good for those who want everything to be beautiful during the wedding day.
These tents are also preferred by many people because they require a short time to set up.
The biggest disadvantage of pole tents is that they have a pole to the center and this may obstruct some guests from getting a good view of the proceedings.
Pole tents also have to be staked into the ground and are therefore only suitable for open grounds.
