There is no ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer when it comes to deciding whether you should hire a stylist for the perfect wedding you’ve dreamed about ever since you were young. The reason for this is because a wedding stylist is not like your wedding planner; in fact, the stylist will scarcely do any of the work a planner will do – a wedding stylist is called in for to add sparkle and glamour to create a truly memorable occasion.

In the last few years, wedding stylists have become a “must have” in the bridal community since they have a unique set of skillsand experience to offer.

  • What does a wedding stylist do?

A wedding stylist is concerned about the aesthetics of your big day. From the colour to the theme and the way the decorations light up the room, they will ensure guests’ jaws drop upon entry into your wedding venue. People commonly confuse a wedding stylist with a planner, who typically focuses on your budget, the order of events, making sure your flowers and other arrangements are well organised.

  • What is your budget?

This is the question you have to become realistic about if you are deciding on using the services of a wedding stylist. They don’t come cheap. Their experience and expertise are what you are paying for to ensure your wedding theme is elegantly matched to your ideas. If there is money in your budget for a wedding stylist, we suggest you use one because it will make your big day as special as you’ve always imagined.

  • What type of wedding do you have in mind?

If you’re going for a traditional wedding and have the planner already arranging all the flowers, and you have your mother or bridesmaids by your side to choose your wedding gown, then you wouldn’t necessarily require the services of a wedding stylist. However, if you want to go big and extravagant, and have a big, bold plan in mind, then a wedding stylist can make that happen for you.

Answering these questions and understanding precisely what a wedding stylist can do will help you decide if it’s worth spending more on one to help make your big day a memorable one.
