Planning a wedding or event can be daunting, so we make the process easy. Our in-house event planner is a big part of this. They’re here to help streamline the planning process and answer any questions you have along the way. We also host a Planning Day at the start of every summer season – a chance for everyone who’s booked with us to explore the tipis and understand the space.
Send us Your Enquiry, along with any event specifics, like the date and location of your event and we can start by building your initial quote and floor plan proposals. This will explain what we would recommend and give you an immediate idea of how much it might cost.
If you’re happy with our proposal and would like to make a booking then we require a 20% deposit. This reserves your date and marks the start of the design and planning journey. You can still tweak things after you have booked, so don’t worry if you aren’t certain about everything.
If we haven’t already, we will organise a site visit with you to do some practical checks. We can then start to design more detailed site-specific floor plans and play around with layouts and table plans. Tipis are incredibly flexible and creative and we like to be too.
As your event approaches we start to plan the build schedule with you and your relevant suppliers. We also begin to finalise your booking and floorplans and make any changes to it before the final balance is paid, one month before the event.
The Buffalo team will normally turn up bright and early and spend the day building, lighting and furnishing your tipis. Once finished, we will handover, show you how everything works and confirm a time for collection.
