Time and Stress Management

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and time-consuming process. A wedding stylist takes on the responsibility of managing the visual aspects, which means you can focus on other essential details like guest lists, catering, and vendor coordination. By hiring a stylist, you can reduce stress, knowing that this aspect is completely taken care of and enjoy the wedding planning process!

Access to Exclusive Resources

Wedding stylists often have a vast network of connections in the wedding industry, from florists to stationers, they can recommend the best suppliers who will align with your style and budget. Additionally, most wedding stylists will hold a huge amount of gorgeous stock and have a showroom or studio space to allow for table sets ups and prop display, making designing your wedding an easy task.

Budget Management

Hiring a wedding stylist can be a cost-effective decision. They will help you make informed decisions about where to allocate your budget for maximum impact. Their expertise in sourcing the most beautiful décor, the logistics of the day and the design solutions all will help you stay within your budget while achieving the look and feel you desire. For example, utilising your aisle décor for your centrepieces, paying for a statement piece that can be utilised for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception.
