Y’all, this post might be the easiest one I’ve written yet, as I used this vendor at my own wedding, and endorsements don’t get much more genuine than that! In fact, there’s a little sneak peek at our wedding below (full posts coming very soon to a blog near you! :)
So yes, it is not hard at all for me to say nice things about Sperry Tents, but I know I’m not alone in that! In fact, in one of my earliest conversations with our florist (who had a Sperry Tent for her own wedding), she said, you know, the nice thing about a Sperry is that they are so beautiful, and create such an experience on their own, that you don’t really need much in the way of extra decor. Mind you, this was a florist who said this, someone who’s a tad invested in “extra decor”!

The end result is indeed beautiful, but the process to get there is almost as striking. The tents are handcrafted by sailmakers in coastal Massachusetts and are the only rental tents in the country 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 gorgeous, 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!

Of course, as many of you already know, my very favorite feature of a Sperry Tent is the festive pennant flags atop each peak. They just look so merry and celebratory snapping in the breeze!
In case you’re wondering, in my experience, Sperry Tents are more expensive than a standard frame tent (though obviously with good reason). If you start to add anything to the tent like a liner, draping or pole covers, however, the price will usually exceed a Sperry. As I said above, they come with beauty built-in, so there’s no need to cover anything up or add anything extra.
Also, for my peace of mind, it was so comforting to know that side walls come standard with every Sperry rental, so there’s no need to agonize over whether or not they’re worth the extra expense. As you can see from the photo below, we did not have to use our walls, but I’m still glad we had them!
Interested? 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 :)
I probably don’t have to say this, but just for the record, this sponsored post is a normal advertising option between Sperry and Southern Weddings, and separate from the rental agreement I made with them for our wedding!
