Now is the time


For a large number of reasons, not least the habits and customs we got used to during the pandemic, but also due to a growth in the appreciation of the outdoors and nature, there has never been a greater demand for outdoor weddings. Britain being Britain, outdoors can never be planned without some 'indoor' or covered space and that means there will always be a demand for tipis insofar as outdoor weddings are concerned.


Initial steps


Right up there with nailing your business plan in terms of initial priorities is finding the right area for your business. You should look at the wedding venues in the area and whether they are already teamed with tipi hire companies or if there are some potential venues with untapped potential that could be approached for a partnership. Look at the number of large estate houses in the area too as there is potential for home weddings and tipi hire there as well. This goes for all private hire companies. Choosing the right area to set up your business is fundamental to its chances for success.


Sourcing quality product


There are few things that separate a good private hire company from an exceptional one better than high quality products. Accept nothing short of excellence when it comes to your chosen manufacturer and where possible go local as carbon footprint is an ever greater concern not just for businesses but also for consumers.
