The most expensive part to any wedding is the venue and the food and a tipi wedding is no exception. Once you have decided on a budget, you can decide on the type of tipi and also, select the catering.

Special tipis

You might also want to consider having a designated space for the cake and guest book, as well as a tipi bar.


The extras are often the things that make people go over budget, but they can also be the special touches that make the day memorable. For example, fairy lights, so allow a bit extra for this when planning.

Television companies have decided not to televise the upcoming wedding between Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, which will be a disappointment for fans of the royal family.


If you are lucky enough to have access to some outside space big enough to erect the tipis, then organise a site visit as soon as possible. Alternatively, ask around. Some council’s have outdoor space available to hire, also holiday cottages may have land that comes with the rental.
