Rain Insurance from Special Events

20150702_105254

Rain Insurance by Special Events

Every year we receive a bunch of calls from brides telling us that they only want a tent if it rains.  They do not want to book a tent, just want to know the price in case they need one that week.  Unfortunately about 90% of those same brides that call the week of their wedding needing a tent due to rain, snow or other weather are frantic, stressed and searching everywhere for a wedding quality tent.  There are a few that we can fit into the schedule but taking that chance causes stress, loss of sleep for bride and others all leading up to the wedding.

Our Rain Insurance deposit plan will give you the peace of mind that you will have a tent available for your wedding but the ability to cancel it 72 hours before set up if you so choose!

Reserve a tent today with a 40% non-refundable deposit, cancel up to 72 hours before set up with no additional fees.

Call 859.253.4675 to reserve yours today!

Congrats! Time to ENJOY!

"Ashley & Matt's wedding day at Warrenwood Manor, Danville, KY 7.4.15."

Planning a wedding can be stressful.  Remember to take time to yourselves and enjoy your engagement.  Don’t talk only about the wedding, talk about the bigger things like where to live, how you want to raise a family, go on dates and most importantly HAVE FUN!

Clear Tents

High Peak

High Peak

All tents are not created equally.  Some have center poles, some do not, some have seams you can see in the ceiling of the tent and some do not.  All of my wedding and event tents are manufactured with the 16 oz. block out fabric.  This means…..no seeing seems in the ceiling or UV light coming through.    I call them the high peak Century Tents.

I have checked with many manufacturers of tents from all over the country and as a provider here in Kentucky the ones that the state has approved.  After many talks with my husband on should we are should we not buy a clear tent we decided on this.  There are only a few months of the year that is it safe to use and cool enough to be comfortable in the sun.

What major manufacturers have to say…………….

  • Clear Tents are not manufactured of reinforced fabric and should be handled with extreme care.  Clear tents will tear very easily, transparencies will deteriorate over time, stretch extremely easy, and shrink in the cold.
  • Avoid installing in conditions below 55 degrees or above 95 degrees, do not install in the brightest part of the day.  Early morning, late evening or even at night as the temperature inside the tent will rise very quickly.  This will cause the fabric to stretch and become unsafe.
  • Clear tents need to be checked every 4 hours for stretching and or water ponding. Straps will loosed with the stretching of the fabric.
  • Clear vinyl has a very low tolerance to ultra violet ray exposure, wind, airborne particles, hot or cold temps, and elasticity due to wind, rain and even handling.

I agree they are beautiful and one day I may even decide to add one or more to my inventory but until there is a better way to make them safe for all of my clients I think I will pass.  I will stick to renting a clear frame tent from one of my friends.

All you need………….Wedding Management

All you need is...................

I attended a wonderful networking meeting this morning full of wonderful people in our industry.  It was really nice to hear that some of the issues that I have as a vendor are all over, its not just me and how I can change my attitude too stay positive in this ever changing industry.

Being able to be and stay happy for me, my family and my staff is the first and most important thing that I want to do as a person and business owner.  I am proud to say that I am always 100% completely honest and I will just say what I mean and I think.  This hurts sometimes in business as I am not in sales, I do weddings.  I manage vendors, staffing, set ups, coordinate and make sure that my brides are guests and enjoy their days.

I received this image and small message in a newsletter from the ABC a couple of weeks ago and its perfect!  There are many options for planners and coordinators now.  Wedding Weekend, Day Of, Month Out, Full service, etc.  As a bride it can be confusing because really what are you getting?  I have made the mistake myself!

There is no such thing as a day of coordinator.  Unless this person seriously only shows up on the day of, crosses his or her fingers, making sure the bride as covered everything with everyone.  No way I will do that.  I want to contact all vendors and make sure I personally have talked with them, I want to put out all of the fires I can BEFORE the day of the wedding.  It just makes everything easier on everyone!

WEDDING MANAGEMENT – such a better term.  It defiantly explains better as to what we really do.  Ask any of my past brides and they will all tell you it is not just Day of!  We spend hours talking, meeting, emailing, texting, etc.  weeks, months, days and even hours before to make sure that everything is handled.

Happy Planning for your upcoming big day and just remember not to stress out!  Relax and enjoy your day!
