How Big of a Party Tent Rental Do I Need for My Graduation Party?

One of the most common questions our experts get from customers is, "How big of a tent do I need?" The best way to determine what size tent to order is to consider how many people you are having at your event. It is also essential to account for additional space you possibly may need for a dance floor, bar, or DJ. 
It is helpful to decide if you will be serving buffet-style or family-style. If you are having a buffet, you may need extra room in the tent to set up tables for that. If you are having a sit down dinner, you will need seating for all guests all at one time. Bigger tents are more forgiving than smaller tents.
Thus, the more activities you're planning to do in the tent will require more space.
