Sailcloth Tent 101

August 8, 2013

Typically, people think of wedding tents for one reason: rain. Tents are a reliable backup plan, but they have advantages beyond the obvious! We here at My Eastern Shore Wedding would like to encourage you to think about tents in other ways, as a blank canvas that you embellish to showcase your style and wedding theme.  You can create a “world” under cover. For example, add draping, chandeliers and bistro lights and a tent becomes a spectacular fairytale dream.

The Eastern Shore is lucky to be home to the Atlantic Sailcloth Tent Company, whose continually evolving inventory includes timeless, high peak classics to modern styles and everything in between. Their tents not only relieve our anxiety about weather but look fabulous rain or shine!

We are so excited about this company’s sailcloth and clear-top tents! What is the difference you ask?

Sailcloth tents are elegant and beautiful. They are incredibly versatile, perfect for all types of events- from the simply elegant to lavish and extravagant. You know what’s the coolest part?  During the day, the fabric reflects sunlight and at night, the translucent canvas glows like a giant beacon.  The tent’s multiple peaks, supported with beautifully stained wood poles, create a stunning landscape that beckons guests.

In addition to sailcloth tents, the company offers clear top tents which continue to grow in popularity every year. Clear tents use transparent vinyl in place of the typical white vinyl, allowing you and your guests to enjoy the beautiful night sky while still providing the cover of a traditional tent. Guests can watch the sunset and enjoy the stars all while staying cool and dry!

The other great thing about Atlantic Sailcloth Tent Company (sister company to Eastern Shore Tents and Events) is that they carry a large selection of flooring, lighting, tableware and other accessories to help you make your experience completely unique! Their goal is to create the ideal tented landscape that you envision for your wedding or special event. Contact their experienced and dedicated team to start planning your event today!
