Start a Wedding Venue Business with our Rustic Tipis

Expanding your service offering is always an excellent way to keep your business relevant and moving with the times. With wedding season an annual occurrence and outdoor weddings growing in popularity, starting a wedding & events venue can be a rewarding and lucrative venture. 

However, with wedding venues being such a competitive market, it can be hard to ensure you and your business stand out. In this article, we discuss the challenges of starting a wedding venue business and how rustic tipis could be crucial for success.

Starting a wedding venue business

As we mentioned above, it can be challenging to stand out in the competitive market that is the wedding venue business. One way to differentiate your venue and appeal to couples looking for something different is to incorporate outdoor spaces into your wedding venue options.

Tipis are an excellent option for an outdoor wedding venue and are becoming more and more popular. Offering a rustic bohemian vibe, tipis are spacious and can accommodate a large number of guests, making them the perfect choice for weddings. Tipis come in various sizes, and with our unique Linking System, they can be linked endlessly together to accommodate upwards of 300 guests and more.

Incorporating tipis into your offering

Here at The Tipi Company, we know a thing or two about tipis and outdoor structures. Our Big Hat Tipi is a prime example of a tipi that has become a popular choice for weddings.

One of the most appealing features of a big tipi is their versatility. Our Large Tent Tipis are incredibly adaptable and are suitable for a wide range of events, not just weddings. We’ve seen our Big Hat tipis used across a range of occasions, from festivals to outdoor markets, parties, and corporate events. 

Our tipis can be customised to fit a specific theme or style, with additional options for different lighting, flooring, and furniture. This versatility makes our tipis even more appealing if you want to start a wedding venue business or want to expand your offering to cater to a wider range of events throughout the calendar year. 

Benefits of tipis as part of your wedding venue business

We’ve already covered how versatile our Big Hat Tipis are as outdoor wedding venues, but here are some more benefits of offering tipis when starting a wedding venue business:

  • Tipis provide a cosy and intimate atmosphere
  • Tipis can be used all year round
  • Tipis offer a unique experience for couples 
  • Tipis provide a personalised wedding experience


Let’s delve into these points in more detail.

Tipis provide a cosy and intimate atmosphere

Another attractive feature of our Big Hat Tipis is their ability to create a cosy and intimate atmosphere. The high ceilings and open plan layout make the space feel warm and inviting, perfect for creating a romantic ambiance for a wedding. 

Our tipis are also incredibly versatile when it comes to internal features. They are versatile in the sense that any lighting can be installed, allowing couples to go wild with their options. Many couples opt for options such as fairy lights, chandeliers, and lanterns to create the desired mood.

Tipis can be used all year round

Our Big Hat Tipis are made from durable outdoor fabric that is highly waterproof, weather-resistant, moisture regulating and breathable, making them perfect for extreme heat and extreme cold. As a result, they can be used not only during the summer months, but for the winter months too offering a stunning winter wedding option for your customers. 

Another practical element of our big tipis is the various linking options they offer. There are many variations you can explore to expand capacity at your venue. This allows for more versatility for guest numbers and enables you as a business to cater for small or large groups, depending on the size you have available at your venue, and your business goals.

Tipis offer a unique experience for couples

When it comes to weddings, big tipis offer a range of benefits for both the couple and the venue. Couples are increasingly looking for unique and personalised wedding experiences, and tipis like our Big Hat Tipis offer just that. 

With their rustic charm and versatility, tipis provide an unforgettable backdrop for the big day. For outdoor wedding venues, offering a tipi wedding option can attract a new demographic of clients, increasing revenue and expanding their offering.

Tipis provide a personalised wedding experience

When marketing a tipi wedding, venues can highlight the unique features that set tipi weddings apart from more traditional wedding venues. For example, they can emphasise the stunning natural surroundings and the ability to create a bespoke and personalised wedding experience, utilising the Window Kits and Enhancement Kits we have available. 

They can also showcase the flexibility and versatility of tipis, highlighting the ability to customise the space to create the perfect atmosphere for the couple’s special day.
