Open Weekend Style Tips Part Two : How to Style your Tipi Wedding

 

tipi wedding

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.

Congratulations to Our Tipi Competition Winners!

Tipi Competition WinnersToday on the blog we welcome our competition winners! At the start of the year we ran a special competition for a chance to win 50% off your tipi wedding with All About Me! We had a wonderful response and a huge number of entries. We can now reveal that the lucky winners are  Karen and Tom.  We cannot wait to see their big day and help them enjoy their winnings! We had a little chat with them about their big day and their competition win;

The Love Story

We met on the first day of University but we didn’t become a couple until around 6 months later. Tom proposed in front of the Trevi fountain in Rome, it was very romantic.

Our Competition Winners – Tom and Karen

All About Me Competition winners

How did you feel when you heard you won 50% off your wedding?

We both felt quite shocked, it was completely unexpected! After that we felt extremely lucky and it’s made our day feel even more special.

competition winners

How did you choose a date for your big day?

We wanted a summer wedding and it was close in date to our engagement anniversary.

How long did you leave between your engagement and your big day for planning?

It’s around two years as we wanted to take the time to plan the wedding.

competition winners

Did you always know you wanted tipis for your wedding?

Yes, we always wanted an outdoor summer wedding and a tipi really completes that.

What theme and décor are you having for you big day?

It’s sort of a country fete theme with hay bales, bunting and pimms.

competition winners

Have you chosen your food options?

Yes, we are having a hog roast for all our guests to go with the country fete feel.

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?

I think just celebrating with our friends and family in a beautiful setting.

competition winners

What is your favourite aspect of the tipi and what made it the perfect venue for you big day?

It’s a lot more special than a standard marquee and we are looking forward to seeing it lit up with fairy lights in the evening. I think the whole look makes it perfect.

Why did you choose All About ME?

We liked the extra options, the photos on the website really gave us a good idea of how it would look and we found it priced competitively.

competition winners

Congratulations on being our 2018 Competition winners  Karen and Tom , we cannot wait to see your big day on the blog!

Open Weekend Inspiration – Autumn Vineyard Tipi Wedding

Last October, our lovely suppliers who work together to dress the tipis for our open weekend, collaborated on this elegant styled vineyard inspiration tipi shoot, captured by Lucy G Photography. We thought we’d share the images today ahead of our next open day. We think they are gorgeous!

The inspiration for the shoot draws on a subtle vineyard theme, with our bleach wood wine barrels, rich deep wine coloured florals, textiles and stationery with gorgeous sophisticated dresses for an elegant twist on a tipi wedding.

The tipis were set out with a main reception, party tent along with a smaller ceremony/blessing tent that overlooks the lake.The flowers by Living Colour were just a little opulent, with stone urns placed on wine barrels and deep, claret tones in the stunning bouquet.

Our bride Charlotte had her look created by talented Clare at Harry Jon, with a very natural look with her hair swept up in a loose up do with the occasional tousled curl loosely falling down around her face and shoulders.
