Hi everyone, any one work with or have their wedding at the shipyard marina? Is it stressful or difficult to get a tent to work?
Thanks for any feed back!

The Marina makes you use Content for the tent so they know what they are doing. But you still have to pick out your tables/chair/linens/plates etc. Content has basic stuff but you can use Party Rental LTD to upgrade. I would recommend getting the tent liner if it in your budget because I notice all the steel supports in our pictures. Also be sure to get the roll up sides because even on a nice day it can get windy.

I was able to use Alan Rentals who is also a preferred rental company for the Shipyard. I believe they have larger tents than Content, so it looks better than combining 2. There is obviously a lot to coordinate being that you have to order/rent EVERYTHING. I used a fantastic wedding planner that helped coordinate everything. Even though I'm a very organized person, I really couldn't have gotten everything done right without her. I paid around $2500 with her, but she saved me money on rentals and catering with her industry discount. It's def a win. Her company/name is: Memorable Events, Toni Delisi
I did splurge for the tent liner and it was beautiful. We had a great summer day, but definitely have the tent walls, which come with the tent anyway. Good luck and congrats!!
