Whimsical Tipis and Yurts for Wedding Receptions
Alike traditional high-peak and pole marquees, tipis and yurts offer protection from the elements and flexibility for your budget and guest list. They also boast the perfect whimsical ambience inspired by Scandinavian design and boho and shabby-chic aesthetics, giving your event a festival feel.
Why Should You Plan a Tipi Wedding?
Tipis are a great alternative to indoor venues, as they often allow you to hold larger weddings with fewer restrictions. They also act as a blank canvas, allowing you to show off your style and fully design the space. You can fill the interiors with quirky furniture, use the space in creative and unusual ways, and hang as many fairy lights as your heart desires.
How Do You Plan an Outdoor Wedding?
Before you book those gorgeous yurts you've been admiring for weeks, consider your overall aesthetic, how you would fill the space and each milestone of the event. If you're counting on a long night of dancing, ensure that the dance floor you want can fit comfortably in the space. You also want to ensure that your tipi and yurt are suitable for the weather expected in that season and typical of the county. A wedding in Argyll or Cornwall may experience more rain and require a different structure than a warm summer wedding in Suffolk. Lastly, fine-tune your design and lighting to make the most of the wonderfully unique shape.
