2022 is becoming the year of the wedding. Couples who postponed their nuptials for as long as two years are anxious to get dates set. Couples who settled for small, private weddings are now planning the large celebrations they had intended. The result is a demand for everything wedding related that threatens to outstrip supply.

Trends for 2022 show that by year’s end, weddings will be up as much as 30%, with about 2.5 million couples having gotten married. That’s more weddings in one year than this country has seen in nearly four decades, mostly due to pandemic postponements.

For couples determined to plan the wedding of their dreams, Sully’s Rental has supplies available to fit any vision. The key in this fast-moving wedding season is pre-planning and early booking, along with a little bit of flexibility.

Make your decisions in the right order

With demand extremely high for the most popular venues, it is more important that ever to choose and book your venue early. Wedding experts encourage couples to put three items on the top of their planning list and check them off as soon as possible.

  1. Hire a wedding planner who can help you set a vision and narrow down a list of venues.
  2. Book your venue and review what is included with that contract, specifically catering, tables and chairs, and bar service.
  3. Book your caterer if one is not included in your venue contract.

With these three decisions made, everything else you will need should follow. Depending on your venue and the atmosphere, there are several important items that will be on your rental list and Sully’s can help you check these off.

High priority rental items from Sully’s

Get the sizes, styles, colors, and accessories to complete your wedding vision by booking early with Sully’s Party Rental.

  • Tent – If you have chosen an outdoor venue, a tent is a must. Our team can help you choose the right size and style for your guest list and location, as well as options for sidewalls and heating or cooling needs.
  • Catering Tent – Depending on your venue and your catering service, a second smaller tent may be needed to shelter your catering staff and provide a place from which to serve. Check with your venue and caterer to be sure you book what you need.
  • Tables and chairs – Whether your venue is indoor or outdoor, you may need to provide tables and chairs. Sully’s experts can help you with numbers, size, and layout designs to best suit your vision and the space you have.
  • China and flatware – Even if your caterer provides dishes, you may want to upgrade to china and flatware from Sully’s that truly enhances your event.
  • Glassware and bar service – Choose stemmed or stemless glassware from Sully’s or rent a full bar setting if your venue does not provide one.
  • Linens – Including table runners, table skirts, chair covers, and napkins, Sully’s has a huge selection of colors, styles, and textures that will suit your indoor or outdoor wedding.
  • Centerpieces – From vases and votives to rustic sets, Sully’s can help you finish each table.
  • Lighting and draping – For both tents and interior venues, Sully’s has available lighting, tent draping, and pipe and drape options to dress up your celebration space.
  • Dance floor – A dance floor is a must for your outdoor wedding venue. Ask our team about staging for your live band or DJ.

Flexibility can make your wedding

In a booming wedding industry with prices on the high side, being willing to compromise can make all the difference. Some couples are considering weekdays and/or unconventional times when their venue of choice is booked on the weekends. Others are moving plans to outdoor settings, which can open up a range of options including a family farm or large yard.

Let the team at Sully’s Rental help you find ways to create the wedding of your dreams with one of the largest selections of party items in the area. Call early to get your request in!

Congratulations on getting engaged this holiday season! The dreaming, the fun, and the work begins now, and Sully’s Party Rental is available to help with all your wedding planning details.

Considering the start of your life together is some of the best time you will spend with your chosen partner. Be sure to enjoy this time before diving into your wedding planning.

  • Call your family and friends to share your news.
  • Plan a small engagement celebration.
  • Show off your ring and be sure to get it insured.
  • Discuss your dream wedding with your fiancé and those closest to you.

Wedding planning tips

Actual planning of your wedding day will likely begin soon after your engagement, but take your time before locking in a date and vendors. Your early discussions should revolve around those traditions and elements that are “must-haves” so you can build details around them. It also is helpful to have an idea of the size of your guest list and budget so you don’t get your heart set on a venue that isn’t big enough or is outside of your budget limit.

Keep the following in mind as you begin your planning:

  • Pick a season that fits your dream first. Your venue, colors and decorations will all follow naturally from the season of the year you have chosen.
  • Create a venue checklist before you begin visiting potential locations. Your list of requirements for your venue will help eliminate unsuitable locations and guide your questions as you visit those locations that may fit your dream.
  • Lock in your date and venue before moving on to other potential vendors, including rental of tables, chairs, and glassware. Having a couple dates in mind within your chosen season will make it easier to book the venue you like best.

Your wedding planning team

With the many decisions you will need to make as you plan your wedding, the team you build will be crucial. Identify your go-to team members at your venue, catering company, photographer, and all vendors providing items to complete your day.

At Sully’s, our professionals are on-hand to help you with the perfect rental items as well as working with your venue to supply everything you need to create your dream wedding.

Choose Sully’s services for the following:

  • Small ceremonies set in a park or yard
  • Large weddings at outdoor venues
  • Traditional weddings in party centers or church halls

We can outfit any wedding celebration with beautiful tents draped and decorated, tables and chairs finished with table skirts and runners, as well as a full complement of linens, café lights, china and place settings, full bar service, a dance floor and music equipment, and seasonal specialties, including heat or air conditioning.

Contact Sully’s Rental early in your wedding planning process and add us to your team of planning professionals. We are ready to help you take your holiday engagement to the perfect wedding of your dreams.

Whether your home is small, or you feel more comfortable bringing your family and friends together in open air, Sully’s has the answer for combating the cold. Holiday and winter parties in outdoor venues can be a great opportunity to enjoy what winter has to offer. Just keep the heat turned up.

Your open air setting

Many families continue to take care when planning both small and large gatherings through the holidays and the cold weather months. With the right heating unit, your options can range from a cleaned up and brightly lit garage to your backyard deck or gazebo. Wherever you gather, portable heaters will take the chill off and allow guests to gather in comfort.

  • Propane heaters – Sully’s has multiple types and sizes of propane heaters that provide clean-burning and reliable heat for any open air space, garage or detached barn setting. Our team can help you choose an appropriate style of heater for your space and let you know whether you need more than one.
  • Patio heaters – Radiant patio heaters are ideal for taking the chill off a deck or patio space. Sully’s patio heaters operate with propane tanks and provide a both reliable and attractive heat source for your outdoor space. We can advise you on your rental based on the size of your deck or patio.

Take your outdoor party one step further with a tent from Sully’s that will transform your backyard into the perfect venue. Tent heaters strategically positioned with partially lowered sidewalls can keep guests comfortable and allow you to incorporate the crisp and magical feel of a winter day and the ventilation many are seeking.

Contact Sully’s today for all your heating options and everything else you need for festive holiday and winter celebrations.

At Sully’s Party Rental, our goal is to ensure you have exactly what you need for any event. For outdoor parties, weddings, festivals, and more, a tent is critical, but not every tent is right for every venue.

Our experts are always available to work with you when it comes to choosing a tent for your event. We supply frame tents and pole tents (also called canopies). How the space will be used, the amount of available space for the tent, and whether the surface is pavement or grass are all important considerations when choosing a tent.

Check out the following features and considerations and contact our team for guidance on your frame tent or pole tent.

Pole tents

Pole tents are great for short-term events such as parties, weddings, and festivals, because they are easy to set up and take down. Tension between stakes on the outside of the tent and center poles keeps them erect. Although the center poles can block views, they also can lend themselves to additional decoration with vines, drapes, or flowers. Because these tents must be staked, your venue must be grass with additional space for the ropes.

Pros and cons

  • Set up is relatively easy, but surface must be grass to allow staking of the tent
  • Available space must be larger than the tent itself to allow for stakes and ropes
  • Attractive exterior profile
  • Center poles may limit set up options for interior
  • Generally less expensive to rent


Frame tents

Frame tents are more versatile than pole tents because they do not require staking. The framework itself provides structure for the tent, so they can be erected on grass or pavement with concrete blocks to secure them, making the overall footprint only slightly larger than the tent itself. With no center poles, interior set up has no obstructions. However, setting up the tent is more difficult and involves more parts and some heavy lifting.

Pros and cons

  • May be used on any surface and where space is somewhat limited because of its frame and smaller footprint
  • No center poles to obstruct views or limit interior set up options
  • Visible interior pole structure can be covered with draping
  • Tend to be more expensive because of labor and parts needed for set up


Our frame and pole tents are available in multiple sizes and may be accessorized with sidewalls and lighting to provide the atmosphere you desire for your event. Call Sully’s today for information and guidance on the best tent for your event.

The upcoming school year and fall sports season promises to be a lot more normal this year. Your kick-off picnic for returning students, meet-and-greet gatherings for new clubs and organizations, and support activities for fall sports are too important to risk weather ruining your outdoor plans.

Sully’s Rental has a tent to fit your plans, from a small information post outside the school building for new club members to check in to large kick-off picnics at the community park or a celebration of the first football game of the year.

With Sully’s, you can hold that parking lot tailgate before the home football games or invite the whole school to the kick-off picnic. Choose from tents that are compatible for location on grass or pavement, with optional accessories that allow for that unexpected cool day or pop-up storm. Sidewalls provide a comfortable space to set up food and beverages. Keep those cool temps out with a space heater and ensure seating for everyone with tables and chairs from Sully’s.

Outdoor events remain the best option for students and families, as most communities continue to encourage thoughtful gatherings that include some care taken for open air and social distancing. Your Sully’s tent can provide the open air you need with protection from light rain or extreme heat.

From 20’ by 20’ canopy tents to large pole and frame tents, Sully’s has you covered. Call today for more information about tent rental as well as set up and tear down services.

Sully’s Showroom hours are by appointment only.
