It's official

I think I'm crazy.

I want to have an outdoor event, as we all know. But I don't want to rent a tent. I like tents. But I don't like what tents do to my wallet. No no no no. But I still want my wedding outdoors. Which presents a problem, since my lovely DC area ladies know that DC is no California. It rains here. Alot. It will thunderstorm when there's only a 10% chance, or it can be perfectly sunny when there's an 80% chance of rain.
But I don't care. I want an outdoor wedding under the stars. I want globe lights twinkling above my head as my husband and I have our first dance. I want paper lanterns hanging from the trees. And I don't want to look up and see a tent because honestly, I don't have the money to make a tent beautiful enough for my standards. Because I want this...

This event was held in Sandy Spring, MD. I didn't even know they ALLOWED you to have an outdoor event without a tent!!
Some more inspiration........


Now, be honest with me. Would I be absolutely insane to have an outdoor wedding and not rent a tent? I mean, what did the couple in Sandy Spring do? Just hope that it didn't rain?? Because there are some gorgeous locations that I can rent at a pretty inexpensive rate if I didn't need a tent.

Well, you could rent a tent and then cancel--find out what the cancellation policy is. It poured buckets at my wedding, so I was glad to have a tent....

OK, I was wondering the exact same thing...to tent or not to tent! I was thinking about doing what Sandi suggested... or vice versa...not renting the tent, then renting at the last second if necessary. But Sandi's way is probably better...
