We had our wedding indoors rather than in a tent.  However, we used monofilament lines from the edges to the center of our venue.  The only thing to remember is that monofilament is a bit stretchy.  Thus, you want to start out with it high up, so that it will still be above head level after it gets pulled down by the lanterns.  You might want to check out what Mrs. Tiramisu did at her tent wedding at this link.

We used fishing line, but we also had ours inside.  I think heavy duty fishing line running across the top of the tent might work fine, but I’m not sure if the packing tape will hold it up enough to prevent sliding.  

Maybe more bees with DIY experience will chime in…
