If you want to do more than just a sit-down meal, then you must remove tables or use a larger tent. The tent area has many uses, such as D/J, buffet tables, dance floor, coffee station, cake table, a long head table etc.

The dance floor can have the buffet tables on it until after the meal and then the tables removed to make room for dancing. Or if the food is not served in the tent, additional tables could be on the dance floor and removed after the meal, and guests would be redistributed among the remaining tables. There are many choices and variants, all which depend on your personal needs or the uniqueness of your yard.

Rentals are available to Coastal Weddings clients who have purchased a decorating or planning package, with the exception of our Wedding tents, dance floor, driftwood arch, white chairs and some linens which may be rented subject to availability without a Design and Decor package please contact us for more details. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting things to add to our list of rentals and our inventory is constantly growing. We would love to help you turn your vision into a reality – at a reasonable cost. To view some of available rentals please check out our Rentals page on Facebook.

From set up to tear down, we’re here to help. You have better things to do on your event day than hang lighting, set tables or make sure all your signage is perfect. Over two decades of experience we are pros at setting up and tearing down events, let us do the heavy lifting so you can enjoy your day.
