If there's one Festival Wedding Theme trend that has taken everybody by storm this year, it is without a doubt, the Wedding Tipi. With it's relaxed feeling of authenticity, back-to-nature and festival feel, it's not difficult to see why so many couple chose to celebrate the biggest day of their lives in a tipi.
This beautiful photograph, snapped at dusk by one of the members of highly sought after Festival Bands in Cheshire, Mulder and Co shows you just why Tipi Weddings have become one of the hottest trends of 2016.
But how do you choose wedding entertainment to really bring your tipi to life?
Well, fear not Festival friends, Tailored Entertainment are here to help with you with some amazing live covers bands, perfect for your Festival Wedding.
1. Mulder & Co
Let's start with the chaps who took the photo! These guys know all about performing in Tipis and bring the sounds of the festival right to you! Playing amazing live covers in a Mumford and Sons style, Mulder & Co are fast gaining a reputation as the best in the North-West!
If you live a little further South and are looking for wedding entertainment in Surrey, then The Thatchers are for you. These guys have got all bases covered, so if you're looking for an authentic folk style set, complete with double bass and acoustic guitar to start your night off, followed by an indie pop and rock set, to really end the party on a high, you've come to the right place! Just check them out in action...
Are you looking for a live band to really complement your tipi wedding and immerse your guests in that relaxed festival feel? Well let us introduce you to The Wanderland Band. A fully unplugged, acoustic roaming band, these boys are free to wander around your wedding, entertaining and delighting all of your guests in a musical experience that's sure to bring a smile to even the most stubborn of faces.

4. Smith & Sons
Smith and Sons are without a doubt, one of the most popular Festival Bands in London. Their amazing live sets, total professionalism and the fact that they are just all round good eggs, leaves Brides and Grooms across the country thanking their lucky stars that they picked them to perform for their big day. These boys are certainly busy bees and recently made a vlog about life on the road on one of their busiest weekends of the summer...
Take a double bass, a banjo, a guitar, drums and four super talented musicians, and voila! You've got Festival Sons. Playing the like of Paolo Nutini, Lumineers and Mumford and Sons, they are perfect for a Tipi Wedding!
The Tipi Trend has certainly taken off this year and doesn't look likely to calm down anytime soon... with an Indian summer on the cards, we're predicting Tipi weddings to continue well into the Autumn. And heck - we're British! A bit of rain never hurt anyone, right?!
