Are you renting the tent from a company (or did you buy it from them)? You might be able to ask them!

@ashleedms057:  Are you stringing them across the 60′ length or the 90′ length?

In your inspiration pics how far apart do the strings appear to be?

If they are 6′ feet apart, going 60′ across and you want to cover the whole 90′ length, you will need 900′.

If you want to concentrate them over the dance floor, you would need 1/3 to1/2 that length.

It will also depend on how “loose” you want them stretched across the tent. Are they going to be strung straight across, or do you want more of a “draped” look? Do you want the strands spaced, or do you want them fairly concentrated? I agree with PP, check with the company you’re renting the tent from. They may have some advice, and could possibly connect you with a rental company of some sort vs. buying all of the string lights. Good luck!!! 🙂
