I know what you’re thinking: I didn’t need to buy a wedding arbor to make your wedding tent!
However, if you plan to hang out with friends and relatives for a few days or just have a couple of friends in town for the event, you may want to think twice about getting a couple dozen pieces of lumber.
The American Council of Realtors recommends buying 1,000-1,200 square feet of lumber for each of your wedding tents and then dividing the space evenly among the friends and family you will be having.
This is assuming you’re willing to spend around $1,000 per tent for all the pieces of wood you’ll need, and $400 per tent per couple for the additional support you’ll want to use.
But this is a little more than a good estimate.
You will likely need about 2,000 square feet, depending on the number of guests, but it’s best to have as much as you can get.
That number could be much lower if you’re renting the tent out.
You may also want to consider buying a new tent for the entire family.
A couple of people have suggested that you might want to get two or three of them to work together so that each one can handle more than one person.
You could use the extra space for a table or chair, or you could buy some more wood and make a separate table or a single-table set.
If you don’t have room for a full-size table or the chairs, you could make an empty box for a picnic table and a table for a large group.
If, however, you don: You plan to stay at home for a while and your guests are all away, you will want to find out how much space you need to get your tent up and running before you take your guests out for a nice meal or a fun night out.
The most important thing is to get it ready for your guests to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
If they’re not willing to make an extra trip to the store, you can find out what you need for the tent by calling the American Council.
You can also get more specific tips on how to make the best of your room and get your guests comfortable, or go to a nearby rental store and buy the most expensive pieces of timber you can afford.
There are a number of other ideas for making your wedding arbors from a few pieces of reclaimed lumber.
You might want the lumber for your table or chairs, a kitchen table, or a dining table.
There’s no right or wrong way to make these tents, but you’ll probably need some of the pieces for a kitchen or a bar-stool or a table, and the rest for a tent that will hold up for years.
