Determine the Size of Tent: Guest Count
Tent size isn’t an easy calculation for a novice. Tent size is determined by a variety of factors. The guest count is always the primary factor. However, the size of the tent is predominately determined by the type of seating arrangements. For example, it is industry practice to allocate twelve square feet per guest for a dinner-style seating arrangement of round tables. Cocktail parties typically require half as much tent space. There is a range of seating arrangements between a seated dinner and cocktail party. Additionally, you must factor in the space needed to include several party areas; such as a dance area or reception area.
Seating Arrangement Style and the Tent Rental Size
The style of the host’s chosen seating arrangement will drastically affect the tent size. Seating arrangement styles include banquet, theater, and classroom. The nuances of each style will necessitate vastly different accommodations for your tent needs. Being a creative event planner relies on the creative use of seating space.
