Top Tips for a Tipi Wedding

Our Tipis are not only a beautiful setting for your wedding celebration but they are also a blank canvas. Over the years we have seen all kind of decorations going into the tipis from simple ivy trailing up the poles to a complete Arabian Nights transformation. The Elite Tents Event Coordinator team have put their heads together and come up with our 5 top tipi wedding tips:


Be Creative. Whether your accessories be homemade or shop bought have fun and be creative; jam jars, fairy lights, bright beautiful blooms and even painted bicycles have all adorned our tipis.




Be Rustic. Tipis allow you to bring the outdoors indoors so why not have thick chunky tables with rustic solid wood benches. Add a metal milk jug full of woodland flowers and there you have your rustic setting…..oh and don’t forget the bunting!




Break the rules. You decided not to hold your wedding reception in a manor house or hotel for a reason, so ditch the pressed linen and candelabras and think outside the box.




Embrace the dark nights. Fire pits and fairy lights are a must. When the sun goes down and your feet are hurting from all of the dancing there is no better end to a tipi wedding then sitting round a fire pit with family and friends continuing the laughter late into the night.




Be yourself. Whether you are into arts and crafts, classical music or annual trips to Glastonbury, use your interests to decorate your tipis. Photographic table center pieces, games of cricket (outside the tipi obviously) or paper birds made from sheet music floating from the pole structure….your imagination is your only limitation.
