The ‘Chic’ Tipi

Today I have been talking to the very lovely Becky from Tentario about what makes a sophisticated and ‘chic’ Tipi wedding.

Anything’s possible 
When you first think about a Tipi wedding the picture in your head is probably of hay bales, hog roasts and bunting with a big influence of festival fun. This is and rightly so a popular theme but the joy of a Tipi wedding is the ability to transform it into whatever you want it to be.

Tipi Decoration 
Tentario offer two styles of tables for dining, either long benches or round tables. For a more formal look choose round tables with elegant centre pieces or candelabras dressed with foliage. The  bench tables look equally as beautiful dressed with extended centrepieces bursting with colourful flowers. As greenery is the Pantone for this year why not introduce hanging decorations, small potted trees or shrubs to enhance the natural canvas of the Tipi’s.

Lights, lights, lights  
The use of versatile lighting can finish off the look perfectly. Whilst fairy lights are an absolute must inside any Tipi other styles of lighting can certainly add to the ambiance.
Chandeliers create a glamorous look and hang perfectly over the dining tables. The ‘naked’ bulb has really come to the front over the last year, why not suspend Edison bulbs from the crossbeams of the Tipis to create a stunning look. For night time candle light on the tables can create a romantic feel, from lots of tea lights to pillar candles and lanterns.


For Outside 
For the ultimate in sophistication create an outdoor lounge for your guests to chill out in. Use a mixture of chairs and sofa’s a chesterfield or wingback chair would make the perfect addition with a rug in the middle to complete the look.

And For Something Else 
Serve cocktails for arrival drinks and croquet on the lawn to keep your guests entertained.
