From Proposal to the Wedding Party … Wigwam® Holidays are Perfect for Venues, Vows and Value!

The wedding industry in the UK is a multi-billion pound business: from engagement rings to bridesmaids’ favours, there is a never-ending list of products to help make that special day memorable and spectacular.

A wedding takes thoughtful, precision planning, and whatever the budget, a glamping wedding ticks many boxes.

Glamping offers so many positives: quality, affordable and comfortable accommodation; a site for the sole use of the wedding party; spectacular locations making for great photos; and many glamping sites offer something a bit different in terms of the wedding experience.

In a recent report published by Confetti, 10% of couples chose to get married in ‘alternative wedding locations’*. And while there’s lots of choice out there, glamping can really give the wow factor.

Glamping accommodation providers are now very savvy when it comes to what is ‘on trend’ for the perfect wedding experience. Rustic themes; live music; specialised lighting; colour co-ordination; even helping with the social media aspect of ‘the big day’ by setting up a photo booth or tent with the appropriate hash tags in full view!

Glamping covers a spectrum of colourful choices: bell tents, safari houses, lodges, shepherd’s huts and Wigwam® cabins. Yet the key thing to remember about glamping is that it allows guests to escape a stuffy reception room and celebrate in naturally spectacular surroundings.

And if the weather isn’t in your favour, then glamping venue sites are prepared, often having barns or purpose-built building ready for your knees-up!

Glamping sites vary as to what they charge, and the tariff will depend on the type of celebration you want. Yet remember glamping venues are often more affordable than you think and therefore could be top of your venue list. And many glamping site owners have a wealth of experience when it comes to helping you make the arrangements.
