Entertainment Ideas for an Outdoor Wedding

When it comes to planning a wedding, entertainment should be a big consideration.  It is a way of ensuring your guests have something to do during periods of waiting.  As well as making sure your wedding has fun memories attached to it.  The bonus of having your own tipi or sailcloth wedding, is that you have so much more flexibility that you can really thing outside the box for your entertainment ideas.

We have put together some super fun ideas for entertainment that could be used for your upcoming wedding. They have all been tried and tested at numerous Sami Tipi weddings in the past.


There aren’t many things more entertaining than magic. Having a magician at your wedding can truly transform the atmosphere. They will most definitely keep your guests occupied as well as really getting their minds working. Magicians work well at tipi weddings due to their ability to mingle amongst groups of guests. Whether they are sat around tables or spread out over the extensive outdoor space. 


Whether you are looking to have a DJ to play the most popular music, a live band to transform your wedding reception into something truly special or prefer the ambience that a solo musician can bring to your wedding ceremony, there are so many suppliers that can provide the musical entertainment at your wedding.

Depending on your wedding vibe you could opt for an acoustic musician to play whilst you have your romantic first dance or a themed band to take you right back to your guilty pleasures.

At so many of our tipi weddings, we have also seen talented friends and family members also providing musical entertainment, including guitar playing around an outside campfire.

Whether your thinking about having fire performers or a firework display to end the ceremony, having an aspect of sparkle at your wedding provides an extra romantic touch.

Fireworks always look impressive above a tipi celebration and is something that lots of Sami Tipi couples have opted for in the past.

Fire pits are another great addition to a tipi wedding and can really add to a theme, whilst providing a cosy effect. As well as creating the perfect spot to toast marshmallows.

Fun and Games

Something that never fails to entertain at weddings are games. Whether you provide board games for the tables, traditional carnival games to add some competition or even sporting activities. We have seen them all and each one has offered a great feast of entertainment for guests at the wedding.

Crazy Golf

Hiring crazy golf for your outdoor wedding is possibly one of the most popular forms of entertainment that we see at our tipi weddings.  Mainly because of how fun it really is!  Popular with guests of all ages, these 9 hole golf courses provide a bit of healthy competition as well as some amazing photo opportunties!

Face Painting

Something we have seen growing in popularity over the recent years is face painting and glitter bars.  From painting funky animals on the little ones faces, to full on festival glitter vibes, it is a sure way of getting everyone in the party mood.
