How Much Bunting Do I Need To Decorate My Wedding Tipi?!

As events hosted in Tipis grow in popularity, people are always looking for lovely ways to add some decoration and colour. We have been making and hiring out wedding bunting since 2010 and during this time we have seen that bunting makes an amazing decoration for Tipis.  It is eye catching, instantly creates atmosphere and sympathetically ties in with the colour scheme and theme of the wedding or event.

We would like to thank our friends at All About Me Marquees & Events for supplying the sizing and diagrams of the Tipis.

We regularly get asked  by customers ‘how much bunting will we need’ so we have put together some suggested bunting layouts within Tipis with the run lengths of Tipi bunting needed to create each plus the associated costs from Bunting Queen™.

 

Stratus 72 bunting requirement

Above – Bunting around the Perimeter of a Tipi.

NOTE: For safety reasons, Tipi bunting cannot be hung above fire pits so perimeter bunting is ideal for the Tipi layout shown above.

The average amount of Tipi bunting needed to dress the perimeter of a 10.3 x 10.3m Stratus 72 style Tipi is 20 metres.

COSTS: 

Hire cost = £1.50 x 20m = £30.00

Postage (to you and back to us) = £10.00

Deposit (refundable) – £20.00

 

 

Criss cross bunting in tipi

Above: ‘Skip a Pole’ Overhead Bunting in a Tipi.

In a Tipi without a firepit it can be very effective to have bunting hanging overhead.  The above layout shows the bunting runs crossing the diameter of the Tipi at various points.  The Tipi bunting is attached to every other pole around the perimeter of the Tipi.

This layout in a 10.3×10.3m Stratus 72 style tipi would require 30 metres of bunting.

NB: The above layout is NOT suitable in a tipi with a firepit.

COSTS: 

Hire cost = £1.50 x 30m = £45.00

Postage (to you and back to us) = £20.00

Deposit (refundable) = £30.00

 

Cris cross spider web bunting plan for tipi event

Above: Spider’s Web plus Perimeter in a Tipi.

 

The above layout shows the Tipi bunting crossing the diameter of the Tipi overhead, incorporating all the poles plus the full perimeter of the Tipi.

This layout (the Spider’s Web) is perfect for maximum impact both overhead and around the edge of the Tipi for the real wow factor.

In a 10.3×10.3m Stratus 72 style Tipi, you would need around 90 metres of Tipi bunting.

NB: The above layout is NOT suitable in a Tipi with a firepit.

COSTS:

Hire cost = £1.50 x 90m = £135.00
