Multiply the number of guests by the recommended square footage per person. This will give you the total square footage necessary. Add the recommended additional allowances for head tables, buffet areas, bars or dance floors. Be sure to check with the decorator, caterer and band or DJ for their specific space requirements.
# of guests x sq ft per person + space for head tables, buffet tables, stages, bars, dance floors, band/DJ, etc = total square footage for the event. Add a little extra for overflow room.
Keep in mind that every event is different. Each event deserves to be looked at individually so that the exact size of the tent can be determined based on your personal needs and preferences.
Another important consideration is the amount of space that is available. You need to allow a minimum of 5' of space on each side of your tent. For example, if you have a 40' x 40' space, the largest tent you can use is 30' x 30'.
Use the drop-down menu below to select the total square footage you will need. When making your selection, choose a tent that is equal to or greater than the total square footage you need.
