Hey bees, need a little help. I am trying to figure out how many feet of christmas lights I need to light this darn tent. At first it was a 30×40 tent, but we have just upgraded to a 40×40 to make sure we have enough room. I found two websites one was:
1700ft of lights for a 40×80 tent (double the size of mine, this is what she bought not actually used yet)
the other: about 1020ft of lights for a 40×60 tent (also a decent amount larger, this amount of what she used and was happy with the lighting provided)
I currently have about 456ft of lights…plus about 72 feet of tiny lights I was thinking of wrapping around the pole in the center of the tent. Do you think I should try to buy another 100 ft of lights of go with what I have and hope for the best? It does stay light until quite late because we are pretty far north, but i expect the wedding to go until 2am or so.
Does anyone have any experience with how many feet you used and was it enough?
