A massive congrats from all us on your engagement, and top marks for thinking about hosting a celebration with a difference! We know that after the excitement of a proposal comes the sudden worry and realisation of what you are about to embark on. But don’t panic! We’re here to guide you every step of the way, and with our top 5 tips for the ultimate tipi wedding, we’ll ensure that you’re a tipi expert in no time!
Let’s face it, our British weather can sometimes take a turn for the worst. However, professional sturdy tipis can provide warmth and shelter in winds up to 70mph, so are extremely resilient – once the party really gets going you’ll 100% forget all about the weather!
With plenty of structures to choose from we are more than expertly equipped to create a tipi wedding in any condition. Our weather proofing techniques and fab heaters maintain a gorgeous warm temperature throughout the tipis, meaning you can enjoy the celebration without being exposed to the elements.
When thinking about venues, keep in mind that tipis can go anywhere. Ideally it’s a level grassed surface with good vehicle access. For example consider farmer’s fields, sports fields, pubs/restaurant grounds, private hotels, community centres, village halls and campsites etc.
Don’t worry about securing a venue first, getting the tipis booked is something we advise doing asap to make sure they’re yours on your chosen date. We’ve got a massive list of really beautiful venues across the North West, so are more than happy to help you select your dream tipi venue. It’s all about finding somewhere that reflects you as a couple, and somewhere that gives you the butterflies when you visit! Once you’ve discovered the perfect spot, we’ll need to start thinking about the practicalities. From generators and loos, to catering provisions and exterior lighting options, we’ll provide them all so it’s completely hassle-free for you!
Whilst we’d love it to be, getting wed inside our tipis isn’t legal… YET! However we can offer fabulous venues with on-site ceremony spaces, and tackle the formality of marriage registration either before or after.
Plenty of our couples have had gorgeous blessings both inside and outside of the tipis, so we can share loads of inspo and ideas to get your guests gushing at the all-important I Do’s! Want an outdoor ceremony? No problem! Weather not on your side? Again, no problem – we’ll have a Plan A and Plan B in place, so that whatever the weather the ceremony is nothing short of amazing.
This part is defo one of our favourites – it’s when we focus on creating your bespoke layouts! As plans evolve, we will continue to advise on the right sized space for your wedding, and ensure that everyone is comfortably accommodated during both the daytime and evening celebrations. It may be that as you add more furnishings, you find that a little more room is needed, so we’ll happily chat about the best ways to maximise your space without breaking the bank! We’ll also share endless images of how we’ve seen the tipis in the past to give you plenty inspiration to create your own unique celebration.
From switching-up daytime and evening layouts, to customising your lighting designs, we will do as much as we can to make your day bespoke. We can even be on-hand during the big day to make sure everything runs seamlessly.
Try to think outside the box! How do you want guests to feel as they enter your tipis – what kind of impression do you want to make? The way you style your tipis has a massive impact and can really help to add your personality into the spaces. We love when couples bring DIY decorations and props as it makes the tipis as unique as possible – think signature tipples, thoughtful favours and stand-out seating plans.
We also know of some fab wedding peeps who can really help to create the most amazing atmospheres and keep all guests entertained – selecting the right suppliers really helps to create the ultimate wedding celebration!
We know many engaged couples are re-evaluating their wedding plans, focusing on the aspects that are most important to them. If you have had to postpone or rearrange your wedding in 2020, have you considered a combination of smaller tipis ? We will help you create something intimate, so you can still celebrate in style.
Don’t think small, think intimate. With the restriction on small wedding receptions lifted in England on the 15th August, smaller reception parties for up to 30 people have become a reality again for those willing to adapt to the new guidance.
What better way to celebrate your marriage, than with a small number of your closest friends and family. Think how much more time you’ll be able to spend chatting with everybody, and how much it will mean to each of your special guests, to have been invited.
We know it is very hard to plan ahead right now, so we will of course adapt as your own plans develop. We will be realistic with what we think will work within the rules, and if the rules change, for better or worse, we will offer you the maximum flexibility, including a full refund if lockdown is reimposed.
Now that small weddings receptions are once again possible, we stand ready to adapt to the guidance so that your wedding day will be one to cherish with your guests.
Please do get in touch to discuss your ideas and options.
