more judiciously and favoring simpler
options, for example replacing couture
loral design choices with more classic
and less expensive loral choices and
incorporating non-loral elements, such
as pampas grass and natural herbs, into
the mix.
Outdoor weddings are also trending. A
Day in May is hosting more of these, ditto
for Celebrations!
" The most popular weddings we're
seeing are deinitely outdoor and rural, "
Isbell says. " We have a transformation
team that comes out and takes an old
barn or tents and transforms them into a
beautiful wedding oasis. Outdoor event
lighting and hedge walls can really make
you forget that your big day is actually in
a relative's backyard. "
Fritz, who says A Day in May is doing
more tents with open sidewalls and
more outdoor decking, inds that in
general, people are more concerned
about creating experiences guests can
enjoy together in environments where
they will feel comfortable gathering for
longer periods of time, such as over a
weekend, with plenty of activities to
keep them engaged.
Playing it safe
Things may be opening up, but that
doesn't mean anyone is throwing caution
to the wind. In fact, for the duration
of 2021, safety will probably remain
top of mind with most wedding clients,
although the extent of that concern may
vary from client to client.
Daryl Sensenig, sales team leader
for Tents for Rent LLC in Lititz, Pa.,
recalls how for the irst ive months
of 2020, their business was cut in
half-weddings, private parties and
corporate events comprise the company's
primary business, along with sales
promotions, graduations and more. But
now numerous wedding customers are
returning. And although the preference is
still for smaller gatherings, Sensenig, who
expects strong demand this year, says
there are some relatively large ones on
the books. In fact, Tents for Rent started
boosting its tent inventory in response.
Last year most of the company's
wedding customers opted to go with
" normal spacing, " Sensenig says,
although some rented larger tents to
provide room for distancing, a tactic
many current wedding clients are
