From helping to select your wedding theme and colours to designing every detail at your ceremony and reception, a wedding stylist can really do wonders! While a wedding planner takes care of the organisational aspect of your event, a stylist will make sure that your venue looks incredible. We think investing in a stylist is a smart choice if you want your function space to look unique, extravagant and jam-packed with gorgeous details you would never have time to find or create yourself.

So, how to choose the perfect stylist? Start by picturing your big day. Is it a glam event in a big space with stunning lighting effects, hypnotic colours and plenty of luxe details? Or perhaps you are dreaming of a romantic vintage tea party in an enchanting garden? Your event stylist should be someone who can turn this dream into reality.

Start by browsing event styling services in your area. Look for the most sought-after professionals with impressive portfolios, huge experience and great reputation. Or, if you have a specific theme in mind such as rustic vintage, try to find a small boutique company that specialises in this type of styling. Make sure to check out their previous work. Do you like what you see on their websites? If you have found an event stylist whose portfolio you really like, then take the next step and book an appointment to discuss your big day.

Check what types of services your event stylist covers. Typically, they will take care of your wedding flowers and centrepieces, furniture rentals, backdrops, decorations and dessert tables. But perhaps you want to add something special to your reception venue such as a stunning wine or cocktail bar, huge light box props or other unique lighting solutions? Ask the stylist if they can arrange this. And if you don’t have a clear vision of your wedding theme, then you need a stylist who will create one for you.

If you also booked a wedding planner, then find out if there are any overlaps. Wedding planning services usually include choosing and booking your ceremony and reception venues and contacting vendors such as florists, but if you prefer that the stylist is in charge of some of these aspects of planning instead, then your planner should cooperate with them. Remember that the planner is responsible for organisation while the stylist is there to create the design.
