5 LITTLE WEDDING STYLISTS SECRETS.

So you’re styling your own wedding and looking to give it all the Pinterest worthy details you can? Then read on below with our tips for nailing all the W-day decor details that will make your day as magical as you imagined.

1. Group your decor. A tip I give to all of my couples for maximum impact. Sounds pretty simple, but but grouping lots of your decor pieces together or tripling the small details in a focal area you’re going to get a huge ‘WOW’ reaction over spacing it through the venue.

2. Make the place settings pretty special. It can be costly if you’re adding lots of detail to each and every setting, but sometimes something personal for each guest or a simple fresh herb sprig tied to their menu choices shows you thought about them and their experience of your day.

3. Prioritise your decor. You probably can’t have it all so don’t try. Go for the ‘cant-live-without’ focal impact piece but then work to your venues strengths for the other smaller decor details.

4. Pre-assemble as much as you can on your decor before the day before. Adding string to hanging decor, wrapping favours, grouping table names cards and writing signage can be done before arriving at your venue. It’s going to mean more time to chill to the max the night before.

5. Keep continuity with your decor materials. I’m not saying stick to just one type of flower vessel and candle holder through the whole venue but if you have a key material or mix of materials then use them elsewhere from the tables onto the bar, cake table and beyond to keep your look consistent and thought through.

10 WEDDING DETAILS NOT TO FORGET.

The stylist in me loves a detail shot, honestly, possibly even a little bit more that the ones with people in which I don’t know if I should admit that! I just get really excited about a lovely little styled detail from a wedding that some one has really considered and put some loving thought into.

So I wanted to share some details not to forget if you’re going in for all of the detail with your big do.

INVITES
On our instagram this week it was our top tip to make sure you have a full set of stationery for your wedding stylist of wedding photographer on the wedding day. From the save the date, to place names, menu, invite…Pull in some details or flowers around them to create something sweet as a lovely reminder of all the effort that creating your paper pretty.

THE DRESS SHOT
Don’t be like me and leave it on the bathroom door….! Think about the placement, the hanger and dressing it perhaps with flowers or other accesorries you’ll be wearing.

BOYS DETAILS
The guys need nice details too, maybe a little boys box with their accessories, button holes, a glass of their dutch courage and cigars on a sideboard maybe…

BAR STYLING
Have a little fun with added details, a bar always needs signage, some flowers and candles. Add a little of you two too.

CHAIRS
I’m all about the chair swag, so much so I gave them their own pin board. Think of florals to signage, diy garlands and trinkets that represent you two.

LIGHTING.
Always banging on about lighting, I know but think about the atmosphere you want to create. Clustered tea lights in cubby holes and simple church candles do all the work.

TABLE PLAN
This can be creative, all too often it’s just sat on an easel. Think about creating a fab display using items that are personal to you both.

TOP TABLE MAGIC
Add a little extra to where you two will be sat. Either through the decor or a different floral centre piece. Or think about hanging a backdrop behind where you’ll be sitting. After all there be lots of pictures taken here.

AISLE STYLE
Appart from the ceremony focus think about what will be lining your aisle. Potted plants, candles, chair ties and garlands…so many options.

TABLE NUMBERS AND MENUS
Give a little thought about how to display them on the tables and amongst your crockery and linen or table centre flowers.
