" To keep things feeling 'outdoors,' many
open-air tents and vineyard cabanas are
also being requested, " Prichett says.
On the other side of the country
from California, Sugarplum Tent
Company services the Washington, D.C.,
metropolitan area as well as the Eastern
Shore of Maryland and the Hunt Country
region of Virginia.
Like the West Coast, outdoor weddings
are very popular in all of these East Coast
locations, especially as many Sugarplum
Tent clients are uncertain of COVID
restrictions or mandate changes and
don't want to risk having to change their
event date or venue.
" We are seeing an increase in guest
counts as well as increased tent sizes to
accommodate a more open loor plan, "
says Tara Franklin, director of sales at
Sugarplum Tent. " Our most requested
tent style is a clear frame or structure
tent with a wood wraparound of all of
the exposed aluminum pipe and framing.
Wedding planners are also asking for
greenhouse-style tents-tents that look
like permanent structures. We are very
fortunate to work in an area with so
many talented decor companies who
totally transform the space, making it
hard to tell you are even in a tent. "
Mike Holland, president of
Chattanooga Tent and Event Solutions in
Chattanooga, Tenn., also is seeing a trend
in the number of guests continuing to
increase throughout 2022 as wedding
couples continue to embrace both
outdoor and venue weddings. Since
1934, Chattanooga Tent has been
providing tents, looring, tables, chairs,
glassware and other elements for events.
Because of the company's longstanding
history within the events arena,
Holland has his inger on the pulse of the
tenting industry, especially as it relates to
weddings. " We feel that the sailcloth look
will remain popular with our customers.
TRENDS IN LINENS
hile tenting structures, fl ooring, lighting, tables and
seating are the focal points for many weddings,
trends in tablecloths, chair covers, runners, drapes and
sashes dramatically affect the overall aesthetics of a
wedding. As Michelle Harris, business development
manager at Choice Party Linens Inc. in Prospect Park,
Pa. points out, bare farm tables have been a trend for
the last few years but this year her company is fi nding
a lot more couples are opting for luxe linens instead.
" We're seeing less plain white and ivory. Rather,
couples in 2022 are making very bold color choices, "

Harris says. " We are seeing color combinations such as
burgundy and black or slate blue; emerald paired with
hot pink; and raspberry and blues. "
And while muted and pastel palettes have been
popular for a couple of years now, this year Choice
Party Linens is seeing vibrant color palettes such as
blues, greens, orchid and bubblegum pink.
" Faux silk dupioni is very popular, " Harris says. " This
is a reversible fabric which is available in tons of colors.
Our marble table linens have also been very popular.
These add instant style to any event. We anticipate
seeing velvet, lace and more dupioni. "
