How to Choose the Right Tent for Your Event

You have the date, the venue, and the guest list. It seems like you have everything in order for your next big event. Everything except the tent. Getting a tent rental for your event is usually a great idea, as it’ll provide guests a place to recuperate and find protection from the sun. However, finding the right tent can be easier said than done. There are many factors to consider, including the number of guests, the space, and more.

How big is your space?How to Choose the Right Tent for Your Event

The first question you need to ask yourself is how much space you have at your venue for a tent. The space you have available will be one of a few major factors that determine how big (or small) of a tent you can have. You’ll want to measure the area you plan to put the tent, then add roughly 5’ on each side if you want a pole or tension tent.

How many people are coming?

This is the second factor that will determine how big of a tent you need. Needless to say, the more guests you have, the bigger the tent you will need in order to fit everyone inside comfortably. Granted, depending on the type of event you’re hosting, you may not know an exactly how many people will show up, but you should have an estimate that can help you determine an overall size.

What items will be in the tent?

A final factor that will determine the size of your tent are the items that will be placed inside. Are you going to have a dance floor? A DJ? If so, then you need to accommodate for those items in addition to the people that will be alongside them.

What’s your style?

You want your tent to be big enough for your event, but you also want it to match the overall style. A carnival tent, for example, will look out of place at a formal wedding. So, be sure to check out all of the different styles of tents before making your decision.
