We are so excited about our Open Weekend, its our biggest ever! Taking place on Friday the 5th October (2-9pm), Saturday 6th and Sunday the 7th Oct (10-5pm). Get in touch to pre-register for your goodie bag!
We are the only Open Weekend in the Northwest where you can see Tipis and Marquees side by side in a stunning lakeside setting, along with an entire Glamping and Street Food Village. We also cover the whole of the UK!
So ahead of our big weekend, here is our stylist Rebecca from Pretty Creative to give us some of her top tips on styling your tipi wedding.
Express Yourself – Tipi Wedding
I love, love, love a tipi wedding! They are the ultimate outdoor wedding venue and a bit of a party animal at night! There are so many opportunities to create a space that your guests will love and that you can really put your own style on. Thinking of ways to incorporate touches that reflect you as a couple is a great way to personalise the styling. Perhaps having a festival theme if you are music lovers, complete with festival flags at the entrance and table’s named after your favourite albums or bands.
If you both love to travel you could book different street food caterers with a choice of different food from round the world.
Chill Out Zone and a Great DJ
Tipi weddings are great for creating different zones for your guests, book yourself a brilliant band or DJ to get the dance floor bouncing and in another area of the Tipi, create a chill out zone complete with cozy seating, beanbags and rugs, perfect for chatting and enjoying a good celebratory drink.
Create a Feature
One of my favourite parts of styling any tipi wedding is the entrance area. Line the way with streaming ribbons from festoon lighting poles, create a casual seating area with hay bales and throws, maybe go for a naked tipi! Put a cool round bar in the tipi, next to a dance floor with light up letters and glitter ball.
Inside the entrance you can make your wedding cake a feature right at the front where everyone can see it, ask your florist for a cute vase to put the bouquet in next to it during your meal and hang a funky table plan next to it so everyone knows where they are at!
Light it Up!!
Fill the place with twinkly lights! Tipis are such a magical space and lighting them up with fairy lights and festoon lights, just adds to the atmosphere. With roaring fire pits for toasting marshmallows and warming yourself as the sunsets. You will never regret having more lighting! The tipis look incredible lit outside too with amazing coloured up lighters, festoon lit pathways and outdoor fire pits. Give your guests sparklers for a magical send off at the end of the night.
