It's All About Timing! - When to book your tent, décor and more!

Creating an event or wedding can sometimes become more stress than it needs to be, especially if you wait too long to start planning.

When it comes to popular items during peak season – there is no reason to wait on getting your reservation taken care of. The Total Events team wants to help eliminate those stressors for you and bring your vision to life! Just a few things we need from you in order to ensure the stress-free event…

The sooner the better is the key message we want you to take away. May-October is our busiest season and holiday weekends tend to be the most competitive in terms of early bookings. If you already have a specific vision in mind, don’t wait to contact us. For creating a unique design, anything that is new or custom, such us: linens, drapery, and lighting, we need advanced notice so that we can acquire and receive the pieces. Even if your vision includes items we already have in-stock, the earlier you book the better. This is the only way to ensure that you are able to get everything you’ve imagined for the perfect event.

Planning a tent wedding, or event needs a significant amount of lead time to be planned accordingly. Tent events require more logistical planning including site inspections that occur months in advance. Additionally, booking all pieces for your tent event ahead is crucial, because everything from the tables, chairs, and silverware has to be brought in.

The overall stress level in the time just before your event is reduced by having all the details and planning done in advance.

Reasons not to book late (3 months or less):

  • No/limited product availability

  • Inflated labor charges

  • We can’t take any additional events, simply because we don’t have equipment, trucking or labor available.

The earlier you book your wedding or event; the more flexibility you have for it to be the best it can be. Lock your rate in early, you can secure your rate before anything can change and inflate your cost. Locking in your rate can also help you predict and have a better concept of your overall budget. You want to be one of the first events on the calendar so that you receive priority delivery and equipment.
