How to Decide the Right Tent Size for Your Outdoor Event
Tented venues are a wonderful idea when you want to have your event outdoors but want some sort of privacy for your event. A tented venue is a great in-between a complete outdoor and a complete indoor event.
Getting the tent sizing right for your event
Number of people: The biggest deciding factor of your tent size is the number of people you need to accommodate for your event. If you are planning a small, intimate event with just a handful of people, a small round tented venue works really well. However, if you are having a gala with a few hundred people expected to attend, then a large tent or even multiple large tents may be required to accommodate everyone comfortably.
Kind of event: The kind of event you are hosting will decide the seating arrangements, as well as other arrangements such as a DJ console, a bar, and buffet counters. Based on the arrangements you require for your event, you can decide the size of tent required. For example, if you want to have a dance floor and a dining area, it might be useful to have separate smaller tents for these arrangements instead of a large tent with everything crammed in.
Time of event: If you have an event during the day or night will determine the size and type of tent you opt for. If it is going to be a formal day event but you need specific lighting for a presentation, you will need a relatively large and thick tent with at least partially covered sides. On the other hand, if you are having a beach party during the night, you will need a smaller open tent with just the bar and a lounging area.
Weather conditions on event day: If you expect a warm, sunny day, you might want to have a tent that is large and offers good cover from the sun when your guests need it. If you are expecting a breezy, chilly day, it might be a good idea to get a tent that is medium to small with at least partially covered sides.
It can be tricky to get the tent sizing right, but with some planning on what you need at your event and the number of guests you expect, you can get an almost perfect idea of the tent size and type you will require for your event.
