When to Reserve Your Tent

The key to planning a successful and relatively stress-free event is knowing what has to be done and when. This leads us into today’s discussion about when to book your tent. Whether you are booking a tent for your wedding or backyard baby shower, booking months in advance is the best way to make sure your planning process goes smoothly.

So exactly how many months are we talking about? We recommend reserving your tent about 9-18 months prior to the event. As May-June and September-October are the height of wedding season, we recommend booking these events the full 18 months out.Some weekends during these timeframes become completely unavailable months in advance, as we never overextend or overbook.

If you follow our blog, you may remember our post a few months ago about site inspections (if you don’t, click here to read all about it!) To give a brief recap, site inspections are one of those technical steps that you don’t necessarily think about when planning your event. Even if you’ve quadruple checked the measurements of the space for your tent, it’s always best to let the professionals handle it (trust us- finding out you have to have a tree removed the day of your event is not fun!) These inspections are usually done anywhere between 9 to 12 months before the event. The absolute best time to schedule a site inspection with Total Events is in November. This is our only true lull in the year, when wedding season dies down and before the hustle and bustle of the holidays are in full swing. Plus, the lack of snow on the ground does make it a bit easier to inspect the site!
