InTents April/May 2024 - 20

TERMINALLY
In the age of Instagram and Pinterest, trying to keep up
with the speed of trends is more challenging than ever.
by Maura Keller
hether a wedding
is simple or
extravagant, glitzy
or subdued, bridal
couples have a
myriad of choices to make as it relates
to wedding decor and accessories. And
today's tent and event rental companies
need to have a finger on the proverbial
pulse of all the latest trends to know what
inventory to stock and to help couples
make their nuptial gathering truly shine.
" Offering unique specialty items, like
selfie walls, personalized dance floors,
neon signs and custom speakeasy
builds, has always been a natural fit for
our business, " says Laurie Ontjes, vice
president of operations at Illusions
Rentals and Design in San Antonio, Texas.
For 2024, Ontjes is seeing a growing
demand for personalization in wedding
decor and is consistently receiving
requests to make clients' events
truly unique.
" Couples want their monogram
displayed everywhere possible-from
bars and dance floors to napkins and
lounge pillows, " Ontjes says. " Unique
photo opportunities for events are in
popular demand. Though we try to
make every angle of our event designs
'Instagrammable,' we are seeing clients
veer away from the traditional printed
step-and-repeat or floral backdrops
and move towards unique dimensional
experiences with different thematic
objects and decor items that make
shareable moments part of the event
guest experience. "
Karis Kemp, owner of Honeywood
Rentals in Annapolis, Md., says one of
the best ways to describe 2024 would
be " bringing the indoors out. " And with
that she means taking a gorgeous living
room, dining room, restaurant or hotel
and replicating those spaces under a tent.
Some examples include wood or carpet
flooring, manufactured bars and tables,
