Here are our top tips for what to look for in a Wedding Stylist:

  • Personality – Find someone that is professional, fun and relatable. It is easier to talk to someone who you get along with and gets your wedding style. You’ll be speaking to this person from anywhere from 6 to 12 months in the lead up to your wedding so it is best to make it a fun experience along the way.
  • Style – Every wedding styling company has its own style to find a company with photos and products that complement your wedding style. Whether that be traditional or boho, it is always important to do a bit of research to get a sense of what styles they do best.
  • Trends –Wedding Stylists should know current and emerging wedding trends. Whether it be a particular centrepiece or colour palette, ask your stylist what is on trend or if they have any unique styles up their sleeves. Wedding Stylists are eagerly waiting for a bride to ask them for a unique look so they can let their creativity run wild!
  • Knowing How to Work with a Budget – A good Wedding Stylist will ask you if you have a budget you are working towards. It is important to disclose your budget to your Wedding Stylist as it will serve as a guide for the Stylist to choose the centrepieces, florals, etc. that fit within your budget and to assist in you getting the most value for money. The Wedding Stylist’s main goal is to work with you. Of course, a Wedding Stylist is not a Fairy God Mother and sometimes won’t be able to fit everything in the budget. In this case, the Stylist will make suggestions for alternatives that will be better suited to work towards your budget, it is important to let the Wedding Stylist know what is “a must have” vs “a nice to have.”
  • Problem Solver – In the world of events, the unknown will happen. Wedding Stylists are well aware of this and have been through it all. Should anything happen not according to plan, it is important to allow the Wedding Stylist to make executive decisions on the day. Your Wedding Stylist has your best interests in mind and treats each wedding like it was their own. It is important to have someone who can think on their feet and is solution driven.

We hope our quick list helped you get a better idea of how to choose a Wedding Stylist.
