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.

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.

The stationery again played on the vineyard and wine theme with beautiful hand painted invitations, table plan, save the dates and menus by Hattie Boo Designs as well as all the signage details. The Hollies Farm Shop provided the fabulous cheese and deli board, which Lucy G Photography managed to photograph just before everyone swooped on the cheese board to sample it!

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. For the Charlie Brear dress, Charlotte’s hair was styled with a pretty floral hair clip by Gypsy Rose Vintage.

7 excellent reasons to hire a tipi over winter

Just another quick reminder about our amazing winter offer….

“Book a tipi from All About ME for any event between October 2015 and March 2016 and you will get 15% off your tipi hire costs AND free fairy lights!”

You may be thinking this doesn’t apply to you because you are already married, or it isn’t your birthday until June, but there are a whole host of other reasons to hire a tipi;

  1. An amazing Christmas Party – impress all of your friends and family by hosting an extravagant party this festive season complete with your favourite Christmas music, log fire pits, christmas jumpers and maybe even a visit from santa. It doesn’t have to be a huge soiree. just one tipi will comfortably host up to 60 people.
  2. A special anniversary – are your parents celebrating a significant wedding anniversary this year? Why not organise a surprise party for them in a Tipi? Their friends will love the relaxed atmosphere and the uniMedia City 2que setting. Maybe it could be an afternoon tea party? The gusts will all be kept warm and dry no matter what the weather.
  3. A 40th birthday party – picture this – you invite all of your closest friends and family to a hog roast disco and relive your youth by pumping out some 80’s classics. Everyone brings a bottle and a sleeping bag, and those who are up for it can sleep in the tipi or maybe one of our bell tents. Then as the sun rises and your heads start to hurt, you can cook breakfast over the fire pit and start the party all over again!
  4. A christening – as a bit of a contrast to suggestion number 3, how about holding a sophisticated christening party in a tipi? It would certainly be a celebration to remember and imagine how great the photographs will look in years to come.
  5. Glamping trip – fancy yourself as a bit of a Bear Grylls? Organise a winter camping weekend with your friends. Hire some kayaks, take your fishing rods, make a camp fire and enjoy the great outdoors.
  6. Kids Christmas Party – instead of having 30 children wreck your house, save yourself the stress and hire a tipi for the kids christmas party this year. They are guaranteed to love it and the parents might just enjoy it a bit more this year too!
  7. New Year Celebrations – see the new year in by throwing a NYE party in style with a Tipi. What better way to banish the new year blues by soaking up the atmosphere of a tipi party, and continue the celebrations by hosting a breakfast buffet in the morning.

Call us now to get your quote. Maybe your event is something we haven’t yet thought of. If so, hopefully we can feature it in one of our next blogs as inspiration for others.

15% off ALL Winter bookings

Christmas Party TeepeeWe posted a message last week about Christmas Party season, and since then the All About ME team have been thinking “let’s spread the festive sparkle a bit further and offer a huge 15% discount to anyone who books a winter tipi event before August 31st 2015”

This means that if you are organising a last minute wedding, christening, birthday party, anniversary….ANY type of event between October 2015 and March 2016, and you book it with us by the end of August, you will automatically get 15% off your tipi hire AND you will get free fairy lights.

So lets do the maths for you. For every £1000 you spend, you will save £150. Just think of all the extra yummy food or delicious champagne that you could buy with that extra bit of cash.

Our Tent Tipi canvasses are guaranteed to keep your gusts warm and cosy and our fire pits make any occasion extra special by adding atmosphere and a focal point. Toast marshmallows around the large fire pit or snuggle up in a chill out tent around our smaller fire pit. The addition of heaters will provide extra warmth for colder days and nights, and our fairy lights will brighten up even the darkest of winter evenings.

So what are you waiting for? Call us now to get a quote and see how much you could save off your winter tipi party. Call 01244 360 214 or email info@marqueesandevents.com.
