Your wedding should be a unique and memorable event. A location of unique beauty or special meaning is possible with Burke’s Tent Rentals. An outdoor tent wedding evokes charm and elegance, a perfect choice if you’re looking for a truly romantic day.

What kind of tent should I rent? There are a few different types of tents to choose from for your big day. Whether it’s for a ceremony, reception or party; ClearSpan, Pole or Frame. Burke’s Tent Rentals can help you discover the best tent for you.

• ClearSpan – Optional clear ceiling panels, no center poles, no guide ropes, perfect for dancing under the stars
• Photo Tents- High peaked, optional ceiling liner, economical
• Frame Tents – No center poles, minimal anchoring
• Introducing the Hex 40 – A unique six-sided frame tent, soaring 22′ peak & no center pole is sure to impress.

What Size of Tent Do I Need?
The size of tent depends on what is going on under the tent – is it a ceremony or a sit-down reception? Is there dancing? It also depends on the space available to set up the tent. A good rule of thumb to follow for a wedding reception, budget 18-25 sqft per person and for a ceremony you will need between 8-10 sqft per person.
For example, the Hex40 is 1023 sqft and can comfortably accommodate 60 people for a ceremony or a cocktail party with some seating.

Contact our tent rental consultant to determine the tent size for your specific requirements.
