For our twenty-fifth anniversary, my husband and I wanted to have the wedding reception we never had.
Our wedding was ruined when nature threw a blizzard on us the night before and the entire area was closed down.
Although we were disappointed, we understood, and ended up having a small house party for those guests who had arrived before the wedding. For our twenty-fifth anniversary, we were going to plan it for when it was still warm. We had a large backyard that had held over one hundred people for our family BBQs, but this had to be special. I called a company that said they had special events facility solutions. They said they could set up a party tent that was for 25, 50, or 150 people. There would be tables, chairs, and a portable dance floor setup. Along with the tables, chairs, and dance floors, they also had portable restrooms, which was something we hadn’t thought of. We had two bathrooms in our house, but one was in our bedroom. We didn’t want people traipsing in and out of our house all day and night. The special events facility solutions company asked if we wanted open tents, or closed tents. I didn’t think we were worried about heating or air conditioning, but I didn’t want it getting wet inside in case it rained. I also didn’t want bugs flying in after dark. Because of special events facility solutions, our twenty-fifth anniversary was a total success and since had the tent overnight, it became an enormous tent for many of our family to throw their sleeping bags and spend the night.
