Google+ Planning an Outdoor Wedding with Sperry Tents - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

The best weddings feel like experiences outside of time and set apart from normal life, where everyone has the attention, space, and energy to focus on what matters most. There are many ways you can help cultivate this atmosphere – have a strong logistics plan, budget time for moments with family members – but one of our favorites is creating an environment that feels special, and marks the occasion. I can think of no better way to accomplish this than with a Sperry Tent. (I will admit to a bias, though – I rented one for my wedding!)

The beauty of Sperry Tents is that they are strikingly beautiful just as they are – no tent liner, no draping, no elaborate florals or lighting needed. They are elegant and classic.

Sperry Tents are handcrafted by sailmakers in coastal Massachusetts and are made from genuine sailcloth. The wooden support poles are hand-milled at a historic 1930s sawmill. All of their design decisions prioritize craftsmanship and have a minimal, classic aesthetic that’s at home anywhere from a field to a beach to a manicured backyard. You can really feel the love that went into each one when you’re standing inside!

And yes, those merry pennant flags come standard with every rental. I adore them!!

If you do have a strong color scheme or elaborate decor in mind, a Sperry Tent is the perfect neutral backdrop – no clashing carpet or bad lighting to get in the way! Speaking of lighting, Sperry retailers also offer a variety of beautiful options, from cafe lights to classic fisherman-style lanterns.

Sperry Tents are only available through a network of licensed providers and are available for rent throughout the South. You can find out much more on their website here! I personally guarantee you will not regret your decision to go with a Sperry :)
