Our Guide to Wedding Venues for 100 Guests or more

As far as alternative wedding venue ideas go, a rustic tipi wedding venue is a pretty great one. But you may be wondering, can they hold many guests? Could they be used as wedding venues for 100 guests for example? 

The answer is, yes! But navigating the world of wedding and event tipi venues alone can be quite the challenge. That’s why we’ve put together this helpful guide to which of our event tipis work well as wedding venues for 100 guests or more. 

Which tipi is suitable as a 100-guest wedding venue?

Here at The Tipi Company, our experienced Sales Team is often asked what tipi formation makes the perfect 100-guest wedding venue. When it comes to outdoor wedding venues, there is no one-size-fits-all. Luckily for you, we offer a range of giant event tipis that can be adapted to suit your individual requirements. When looking to install a wedding venue for 100 guests or more at your site, there are a few things you must consider:

The size of the outdoor space available

Our Big Hat Tipi is a fantastic option for wedding venues for 100 guests and more, thanks to its huge size and its unique ability to lift and lower the sides. If you’re looking to offer a 100-guest wedding venue for your customers, then you have a number of tipi configurations to choose from that vary in size. By using our Tipi Link system, you can join a number of Big Hats and Midi Hats together.

Before chatting with our Sales Team it would be beneficial to find out if you have any size restrictions so that our recommendations for your large-scale party or wedding venue will be suitable for your site:

  • 2 Big Hats                                                 measuring 21m width, 10.3m depth*
  • 2 Big Hats & 1 Midi Hat                          measuring 30m width, 12m depth*
  • 3 Big Hats in a line                                  measuring 32m width, 12m depth*
  • 3 Big Hats in a triangle                           measuring 21m width, 21m depth*


*Please note that the addition of a Tipi Enhancement Kit, Panoramic Window Kit, Catering Tent, or Tent Ballast options will increase these dimensions. Contact a member of our Sales Team for more information.

100 guest wedding venue

How many people do you want on your site?

Some outdoor tipi wedding venues want to keep their offering to smaller numbers of 80 – 100 guests. This can be due to a whole host of reasons but it is worth considering exactly how many people you want to be visiting your site on a weekly and even daily basis. It’s important to think about whether you have the below requirements for a 100-guest wedding venue and think carefully about the logistics:

  • Adequate car parking
  • Toilet facilities
  • Facilities for a catering company to operate out of 
  • A drinks reception area
  • Accommodation either onsite or at other hotels nearby

What budget have you set aside for this investment?

Here at The Tipi Company, we pride ourselves on being a British manufacturer of event tipis. As such, you will be making a long-term investment in the highest-quality outdoor structures on the market. 

To give you indicative costings, our Big Hat Tipis are priced at £11,545, whilst our Midi Hats come in at £10,545. All prices of any further extensions or enhancements such as party tent side panels or tipi interior design options are listed in our brochure and our Sales Team would be more than happy to pull together an itemised quotation for your ideal 100-guest wedding venue.

Are you looking for a year-round solution?

The Tipi Company was the first to launch a range of Enhancement Kits suitable for tipis, thus transforming them into the perfect all-year-round party venue for 100 guests. Our tipi tent canvas is inherently water-resistant and flame-retardant, ensuring it is weatherproofed for all seasons. Enjoy the best of both worlds by rolling up the windows from our Enhancements Kit during the summer, and securing them down once the temperature drops later on in the evening. That, alongside our tipi heating options, makes for a super cosy venue for your guests.
