Cool Outdoor Weddings: Choosing the Right Misting System
Spring 2020 weddings have been pushed back to late summer and beyond due to COVID-19 restrictions this year, turning up the heat on many outdoor venues. Fortunately, portable misting systems and tents are available for rent – and can keep wedding guests cool and refreshed throughout the event.
According to Chris Miehl, president and CEO of Big Fogg, Inc., misting systems are easy to set up and install in outdoor locales such as wineries and resorts – and can cool the ambient temperature by as much as 25 degrees.
He recommends designating specific respite areas within your venue for guests to cool off. “Misting fans are most popular for weddings because of their portability and cost,” said Miehl. “But misting tents can create an elegant outdoor room where guests can gather comfortably.”
Typically, both misting fans and tents can be delivered and installed on the day of the event. To operate, they require access to electricity and a water source.
As the nation’s premier provider of misting systems, Big Fogg carries an expansive inventory of options. For private events such as weddings, Miehl’s recommendations are as follows:
Cool Caddie – Big Fogg’s top-of-the-line self-contained portable misting system effectively reduces the ambient temperature even in extreme heat and humidity, without residual moisture. Cool Caddie is whisper-quiet, allowing guests to easily converse when standing next to it.
Handimist – A smaller, lower-cost option, the 18″ Handimist is also housed in a portable, self-contained unit. Handimist can be placed both indoors and outdoors for maximum versatility.
Misting Tent – Misting tents deliver a fine mist that evaporates quickly to keep guests cool and dry. Choose from a variety of configurations to best suit your budget and venue.
“So much time and attention to detail go into planning a wedding,” said Miehl. “Why not take the experience up a level by investing in outdoor cooling? Having misting fans and tents available for guests can make a big difference in their overall comfort and enjoyment.”
With more than 25 years of experience designing and installing professional misting systems, Big Fogg offers both the expertise and commitment to service you need to make your dream wedding a reality.
