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.

Make an Entrance!

I’m so excited about styling the open weekend and I think its so lovely to make a statement with the entrance to your beautiful wedding marquee. It doesn’t have to be elaborate but creating a focal point at the entrance, leads the eye in and gives a sense of arrival.

You could create an entrance with a clear span frontage. Place potted bay trees, hung with tea lights, or flower arrangements on barrels either side of the door. Cluster hurricane lanterns next to them to be lit at night for your evening guests too. Add some attractive seating areas that go with your theme to finish the look. You could also create a walkway to your marquee, lined with hanging lanterns, which look magical at night too.

Create Different Zones in Your Wedding Marquee

Marquee wedding are so versatile and unlike a venue in a building, your marquee is a total blank canvas, the perfect space for you to design. You can decide how big you want it, where you want the marquee and then exactly how to use the space.

Thinking about what will be happening on the day, you can create different spaces to make the most amazing day. A welcoming entrance area with seating, perhaps hire some cool sofas and low tables, you need a great bar area of course, maybe near the seating, a dance floor with plenty of room for everyone to join in. Eating is probably pretty key! So think about how you want the tables arranged and how they can be adapted later on in the evening as the use of the space changes.  If you have a spare zone, think about adding an extra bit of fun for you and your guests, a glitter station, a Photo Booth or maybe a gin or Prosecco station.

Look Up to the Skies

I love the clear span sections that you can add into the All About Me wedding marquees! In the day you can look up to the skies, watch the clouds float by, the sun going down and the stars at night.

You can also create stunning focal points with features such as hanging floral hoops above the round bar, or hang cool addison oak lighting beams with foliage, chandeliers and strings of festoon lighting, all create atmosphere and the wow factor.

Light Up the Room

Lighting in your wedding marquee can be so magical.  From festoon lighting, pealights, twinkly fairy lights, colourful up lighters, light up letters, candle light and stunning hanging candelabras and chandeliers. Lighting creates ambience and atmosphere and is just so pretty.

Style your wedding marquee

Decorate with Stylish Linen, Flowers and Stationery.

Finally, its a simple one really but gorgeous flowers, linen and stationery can tie the whole feel of the wedding marquee together. It can be as elaborate or as simply elegant as you want. Linen and florals soften the space even more and tie everything together for the perfect finishing touch to your wedding marquee!
