How to Choose the Right Tent Size for Your Next Party or Event

Whether you're throwing a family reunion or a wedding, a tent can make your event much better. The right tent can add to the festivities by adding covered seating, becoming an outdoor ballroom or even adding glamour to an indoor space. Tents have so many uses when it comes to parties and events, but you need the right tent for your specific needs.

There are several things to consider when choosing the right tent for your event. Size does matter and you do need to consider what you really need. Here are a few ways to figure out the size you will need for your event or party.

Size of the Space

Of course, you cannot add a 20 x 30 tent into a space smaller than 20 x 30. Measuring the space for the tent will determine the maximum size you can use for your event.

You need to account for at least 10 feet around the perimeter of the tent, as well. This allows for safe anchoring and set up. Of course, you should also consider any adjacent building, cooking facilities and necessary access when measuring for the correct size.

Number of Guests

Another factor in figuring out the size of tent you need is the number of guests you will be putting in the tent. The more guests you will have, the larger the tent may need to be. It may become necessary to have more than one tent set up for your event. It's best to work with an expert to ensure you get the right set up for the number of guests attending your event.

Location and Weather

The location you plan to use for your event will also be a determining factor in the size of the tent you will need. If you're near water, it could be a different type of tent or size used to ensure it's safe from weather coming off the water. It's also possible that the surface the tent will go on will help to determine the overall size.

Height Restrictions

If you plan to use a tent indoors, you may run into height restrictions. You want to account for the height of the space you will be using the tent within, as well as the width and length. Make sure you have an expert check out the space and recommend the right tent for indoor use.

Your Vision

You may already have an idea of what you'd like for your event. The size of the tent in your vision matters and most tents are a bit of a blank canvas. You can set them up the way you see for your event and choose the size that fits the space the way you prefer.

Choosing the right tent size for your event will make a difference. You want to make sure there's plenty space for guests, a dance floor, food service and anything else you plan to put under the tent. It may be necessary to use more than one tent for your event. Working with an expert will help to ensure you choose the right size tent for your party or event.
