Most of Fosters' weddings take place
under a sailcloth tent, as the style seems
to align nicely with the rustic aesthetic

and more traction within the area.
" People come to our area for vacations
and destination weddings because of the
Adirondacks and the Adirondack style
is usually what they are after, " Gagnier
says. " That is the dominant theme here
and it is the style that we have built our
inventory around. " Gagnier and the rest

have become a focus point for most of
their clients.
" This usually involves lots of string
lights with larger bulbs and creative
designs throughout a tent, outdoor space
or both, " Gagnier says.
For Encore Events Rentals, weddings
are the company's primary focus of
events, as it is based in the wine country
of Northern California. Encore provides
all aspects of rentals for weddings-from
the ceremony, receptions, after-party,
catering needs and decor.
" Most of our weddings are outdoors,
based on the lovely scenery and weather
we typically have in the wine country
and California in general, " says Bridget
Doherty, president, Encore Events
Rentals. " We expect to see that continue
with 99 percent of weddings we do
being outdoors, and we also expect to
see a range of wedding sizes. " Doherty
says Encore is continuing to experience
the trend of smaller weddings to help
manage the COVID risk but notes that
large weddings are making a comeback
as well. People are ready to celebrate, as
some couples have been waiting since
2020 for their wedding.
" In our area, traditional white vinyl
tents are used less for weddings. Rather,
sailcloth tents are popular, especially with
the wood poles. We also have couples
asking for custom draping on a tent
frame, to offer more design elements for
their weddings, " Doherty says. " We are
fortunate to have such beautiful landscape
around us. As such, clients want to keep
those views throughout their events and if
a tent is used, to have it it into their design
and feel of the wedding without taking
away from the scenery. "
Napa, Calif., is also home to Bright
Event Rentals where Michael Prichett,
partner, vice president of marketing and
sales, predicts 2022 will be the " year
of the wedding " as many couples who
postponed their weddings due to the
pandemic have set their sights on 2022 as
the year their weddings will take place.
As a result, venues with outdoor
capacities or backyard at-home
gatherings are taking center stage and,
subsequently, the demand for tent
rentals is growing considerably.
As Prichett explains, he is seeing
sailcloth, as well as clear and white
structures, continue to be a popular
inspiration for wedding tenting.
