Choosing a venue for your event can be a stressful situation, and many people opt for a tent to be able to customize their party. For events from 10 to 1000, a tent can be just the thing you need to make your event perfect. If you are thinking of renting a tent, here are a few tips for you in your decision-making process.
Types of Tents
When you’re looking to host an outdoor event and considering a tent rental, your Event Rental Specialist will want to know the type of tent that will work for your specific event. They will also ask if the tent will be placed on asphalt or grass.
Should either of these surfaces be an option, your tent rental suppliers may offer you the choice of either a tension tent or a pole tent. If the tent will be set up above concrete, then it may be best to go with either a clear span tent or a frame tent.
If your special outdoor celebration requires an open interior space, then you may find that tension and pole tents have several center poles. If you desire open spaces with no center poles, then you can choose a clear span or a frame tent.
One of the most popular outdoor events is weddings. Outdoor tents are affordable and the ideal choice for outdoor weddings. While the average cost for a wedding in 2021 was just over $28 000, outdoor tent rentals can provide a cost-effective option that also offers safety and security for your wedding guests. The outdoor wedding dance floor will remain dry and secure, thanks to a sturdy and durable tent.
Stuart Event Rentals will be happy to discuss your needs as they relate to the perfect outdoor tent for your special day.
What Size Tent Do I Need?
While it’s not necessary for you to figure out what tent size you need, your Event Rental Specialist will want to know:
- Will you be needing a dance floor?
- Will the meal service feature servers and a wait staff or will it be buffet-style?
- Will there be a need for a cake table, beverage table or gift table?
- How many guests do you anticipate attending your event?
- Will a head table be needed?
With these details, your Event Rental Specialist will be able to determine the best size tent for your event. Your suppliers will work with you, ensuring that the tent fits the outdoor space.
The size of the tent is very important for your event. For example, if you are having a buffet-style dinner then this will require more space per person compared to a seated dinner. It’s also important to note that a seated dinner will require more space than a cocktail celebration. If your outdoor celebration is a reception, then you should plan on approximately 20 square feet per person.
Depending on the size of your tent, a permit may also be involved. While it does add extra cost to the tent, it is needed for safety and is required in most counties in California. After reviewing the size of your tent, your Event Rental Specialist will consult with you in the cost of the permit.
Measuring Space for Tenting
Another aspect that will be needed for your tent rental suppliers is the measurements of the open space for the outdoor celebration. Your suppliers will want to ensure that you have enough space for your party. There will be a footprint needed absent of the brick, concrete, patio, deck, shrubs, overhanging trees, or any other obstacles.
