Autumn is a gorgeous time of year to get married, with it's warm colour palette, nature looking it's best and early nights drawing in. I can't think of anything more magical than cosing up, inside a tipi with your nearest and dearest on your wedding day. I have a ton of inspiration for you to indulge in, to help give you some ideas on turning a blank canvas into a calm and cosy nest.
Scrivelsby Walled Garden in Lincolnshire offers the perfect location for a private tipi wedding reception. 3 giant tipis are hidden behind the garden walls, making it an intimate space for you to enjoy. The tipis have sides on, to help stop the autumn chill, and they have the option to light the fires to toast marshmallows too.
Tipis are particular popular for those couples looking for a chilled out, relaxed informal wedding, which fits perfectly with the bohemian vibe. So if this sounds like you, you are in for a treat.
Styling a tipi to create a bohemian theme is very much based on an earthy colour palette, natural materials are used and a relaxed approach to decoration is key.
Macrame is a popular choice for helping decorate the space, as it uses simple materials to achieve amazing results. Large backdrops and chair covers make for show stopping decor, without losing the relaxed vibe.
While the autumn season presents us with a beautiful array of vibrant colours to work with, using a subtle colour palette instead, gives a whole different vibe. Soft browns, creams and soft orange give the relaxed, calming feel a tipi deserves.
Dried flowers are also very popular to create the bohemian look. Pampas grass, bunny tails, and palm leaves, are the perfect addition to style the tables. Arrangements can be big and bold for a statement or place in smaller vases for a delicate touch.
Materials such as wicker, wood, and glass are a must in the styling, to help you keep the mood right.
Using soft fabrics like chiffon, cotton and linen will add the appropriate texture, and you guests will feel automatically at ease.
Using paper stationery with the luxury touch of foil will help greet your guests with elegance.
No tipi is complete without twinkle lights in my opinion! Wrapped around the wooden tipi poles will make the whole thing come to life and add the magic into your autumn wedding.
A cosy area for your guests to chill is essential for the relaxed vibe a bohemian wedding cries out for. Create a snug setting with sofas, blankets and pouffes for guests to take in the autumn evening.
I hope this has inspires you to get married in the autumn months!
