a few thoughts:

focus on good ventilation to keep down condensation
avoid setting up a tent on grass (like a meadow)
try to set up tent under tree cover
avoid low-lying areas near water

use pack towel to soak up condensation before breaking camp
strap wet tent to outside of pack
tent and sleeping bag will generally dry quickly in sun during breaks
