As an event consultant we get asked lots of questions about events that people not in the event industry don’t know. Here is a list of our top 5 most frequently asked questions:
5. How many glasses will I need for my event?
We usually suggest 2-3 glasses per person per hour. But even this rule of thumb doesn’t apply to everyone’s glass needs.
We then ask a series of more specific questions to get an idea of a more realistic number ..
Bella Lyse Event Designs
BRAVO! Event and Party Rentals
TIPS to remember: Some people will hold their one glass the whole night and some will get a new glass every time they go to the bar. It’s always better to have more than you need than not enough.
4. How many chairs does a certain size table sit?
36" Round sits 2-4 chairs
48" will seat 4-6 chairs
60" Round sits 6-8 chairs
72" table will seat 8-10 chairs
6' tables will seat 6-8 chairs depending if you put chairs on the end
8' tables will seat 8-10 chairs depending if you put chairs on the end
3. What size dance floor do I need?
It depends on how many guests you expect to dance. We suggest having 3 square feet per person.
2. What size linen do I need?
1. What size tent do I need?
It all depends on how many people you are expecting, if there will be a band or DJ, if there will be a dance floor, etc. This is the chart we use to help figure out what size tent you need:
