When’s The Best Time To Book Your Tipi Wedding?
Once you’ve decided you want to have a Tipi wedding (that’s the easy bit, surely?!), the next decision is often choosing the date. It’s this decision that’s not always as straight forward. At Tentario, we find that our Tipis are usually one of the first things that our lovely couples book in their wedding planning process, often alongside the church or registry office and the venue itself. It’s because of this, that we highly recommend getting in touch as soon as possible and securing our Tipis to avoid missing out on your preferred date.
Our Peak Season
Generally speaking, our busiest time of the year for Tipi weddings is in the summer, between the months of May and September. Most couples want to make the most……or should we say, give themselves the best chance of some nice, warm, sunny British weather and therefore weekends in these summer months are highly sought after. In our experience over the years, we have found that a lot of these summer dates are booked up well in advance, often up to 18 months.
As it stands for 2017, weekend dates in June, July, August and September are beginning to fill up!
Other Things To Consider
The Size of Your Wedding
It may sound obvious, but think about the size of your wedding guest list. If you have a large wedding party (120 -150 for example), you will be looking to hire quite a few Tipis. As a general rule of thumb, the more Tipis you require, the earlier you will need to book as our availability will steadily decrease as time goes by. For a smaller wedding, you might be lucky and may be able to book your Tipi reception a little later on, but there is still no guarantee!
Out of Season
Have you ever considered a Tipi wedding outside of the summer months? It might be that your preferred date is no longer available, or you simply like the idea of a Winter wedding. Dates outside of the summer months are less competitive and you can still catch some lovely Spring and Autumn weather in April and October too. Due to the lesser demand, we’re often running a promotional offer, so it might be that you can also take advantage of a healthy discount on your Tipi wedding.
Tipi Before Venue
If you have your hearts set on a Tipi wedding and you don’t want to miss out on a particular date, why not consider contacting us straight away and secure our Tipis before you book a venue. We work with a number of local venues in Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire that have hosted many Tipi weddings before. These venues cater for a range of budgets and we’d be more than happy to put you in touch with the right people.
