@reba21:  We had 165 people and two large tents – one was 30×45′ and the other was 30’x60′.  (The big one was only half full – it seemed like it was going to rain, so we wanted a dance space under a tent too.  Turned out to be nice, so we all danced in the grass instead.)  I’d just recommend figuring out how many tables you need, what size they are with all the chairs, and think about how much space that will take up.  Don’t forget to leave room between them for people to walk, as well as things like a cake table, gift table, guestbook table, etc (?), plus the dance floor.  Tents are expensive 🙁

The websites or places you’ve been to, do they show you any charts or diagrams of the potential setups for the number of people you want to have?  I think the size of your tent also depends on the types of tables you want and the also how you want the layout to work.  For example, round tables take up different amounts of space than long ones do.

We originally wanted a tent wedding too but like pp said, they’re really exensive.  Plus with all the other details we had to factor in: toilets, dish/cutlery rental, hiring wait staff/servers, potential for rain/wind/humidity….. we just decided it would be easier to have it in a banquet room.
