Choosing your event stylist - table set ready to dine

Let’s first establish the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding and event stylist.

A wedding planner is the person responsible for every organisational aspect of your occasion. Depending on the level of service you’re paying them for, a wedding planner will, for instance, as this article in The Knot points out, help you with:

  • Setting a realistic budget for your wedding or party
  • Come up with a master plan to map out all the small details – from your music choices to your favours
  • Source venues/locations that fit your brief and budget
  • Fitting your budget, find great florists, photographers, caterers, bands and DJs and … wedding/event stylists …

… and a great deal more besides.

The Event Stylist

An event stylist  is the person that gives your venue the WOW factor. You know – that thing that makes your guests take a sharp intake of delighted breath when they walk into the room. But how to choose such a person?

NB: I’ve made a point of mentioning the word event because of course venue stylists are not only for weddings. From hatch to match and despatch – life is full of occasions that call for celebration, for rolling out the metaphorical red carpet. 

Choosing an event stylist

A wedding stylist can work absolute wonders for you. They’ll bring your vision to life in every detail of your ceremony and reception, liaising with your wedding planner should you have one, to create a cohesive story. 

Close your eyes and picture your party or wedding reception. Whatever your dream might be, from vintage tea party to winter wonderland, your event stylist will bring your vision to life.

To get your search started, Google is your friend. Browse for event styling services in your area. Check out social media too. Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook are all great places to find event stylists and to get some visuals on what they can do. Not forgetting, if it’s a wedding you want styling, wedding fairs.

Once you’ve shortlisted some stylists that pique your interest check out their websites for their portfolio and costings. When you’re satisfied on those points all that’s left then is to make appointments to see them in person. As you start to discuss with them what you have in mind, you’ll quickly be able to gauge if they ‘feel’ right to you. It’s vital that you feel confident in them and comfortable with them.
