You and Your Wedding - - Perfect Planning -

Con­sider hir­ing a stylist to do the hard work for you. They can be as hands-on as you like – cre­at­ing the whole look from scratch, sim­ply sug­gest­ing sup­pli­ers or just lend­ing a hand on the day it­self.

En­rol on a styling course to learn the tricks of the trade. Elle runs a How To Style Your Wed­ding master­class, as well as a vir­tual stylist ser­vice at theart­fuleventco.com.

Take the time and ef­fort out of sourc­ing ev­ery­thing from lights and signs to drinks sta­tions and flower walls by us­ing prop hire com­pa­nies.

Ask your venue what it has on-site al­ready for you to use – it may have a se­lec­tion of table­cloths, cut­lery, glass­ware and flower vases and of­ten the wed­ding co-or­di­na­tor is happy to have a hand in the styling.

Make the most of your sup­pli­ers. They’ll have helped at hun­dreds of wed­dings, so will know what works, and more im­por­tantly, what doesn’t!
