HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR WEDDING STYLIST.

So you’re not too keen on the idea of pulling all your hundreds of Pinterest pins together the day before? The whole idea of dressing a wedding venue makes you want to run for the hills? That’s totally OK and exactly when you need to find a wedding stylist.

Your wedding stylist should inspire, not take away any of the control from you as a couple but bring their guidance and add a whole heap of creative and practical knowledge of what’s going to make your decor rock and importantly, work.

I’ll admit it, I do get a little bit over excited about the details. I like to bring a personal approach to my styling and make sure you’re heard through the whole process.

For our ‘A little help goes a long way‘ package it all kicks off with an initial meeting with me. It’s important you like me before I start working on your wedding. It’s a chance to bring visuals along, all your favourite Pins, magazine tears, favourite colours, fabrics, things you love as a couple, objects from home…You name it, this is what will get the creative juices flowing and as your stylist I’ll already have a heap of ideas whizzing around.

Once you have a tonne of ideas that you want to try, the next step is to walk through with your stylist in tow at the venue to see what is feasible. With a designers eye often we’ll notice an area that would be amazing dressed, you get the most from a venue when you work with it. Your stylist can advise placements and how best to use what you have collected and sourced.

Unlimited communication – Keep in touch through the whole of the planning, bring in ideas to the table over email. Often the logistics of the day need to be communicated with your stylist; where the caterers will be, will props need to be moved at any point in the day, is there a wet weather plan…Lots of queries can come up in the weeks before the day.

Have a final walk through of where each and every detail will be going together at the venue a few weeks before the day. If there are other creative suppliers that are bringing props your stylist will ask for details and arrival times. Your stylist will then work out the timings for the set up day to ensure everything is in it’s place on time.

Then, relax. Let your stylist do what they love to do. Trust what they can do. They’ll have a full kit from irons for linen creases to cable ties for lighting, so you don’t need to worry about a thing.
