Tent Size

The size of tent depends on the type of function i.e. ceremony, sit-down reception, etc., what is going under the tent, and the space available to set up the tent. To get a basic idea of the size please refer to the Tent Sizing Chart. These are only general calculations and it is recommended that you contact our tent rental consultant to determine the tent size best suited for your specific requirements.
