What does a wedding stylist do?

Wedding Planning Advice

As well as being the leading wedding planners in the East of England, did you know that we’re also award-winning wedding stylists? Having won the East of England’s Wedding Stylist of the Year award back in 2018, our wedding styling business continues to go from strength to strength and you can find out more about our wedding design and styling service here.

We’ve had so many enquiries about our wedding design service across the past few weeks and are so excited to be working with so many amazing couples across London & the East of England. But, there’s still a misconception out there about the role of a wedding designer and wedding stylist, so today we’d like to dispel a couple of the top myths for you!

Will you give me a ‘too cool for school’ trend-led wedding?

It’s a really common question! At One Curious Dream, our wedding designers and stylists will always stay tuned into the latest trends that are taking place across fashion, interiors and culture in general. Still, the truth is, we know that not every couple wants a ‘too cool for school’ wedding!

In fact, our approach to design is to create spaces which are not only beautiful and personal but will also stand the test of time when you look back at your wedding photographs. Lots of the weddings that we design and style are heavily influenced by nature, so you’ll see us make use of foliage and florals as well as embrace the lighting provided by mother nature at the time of year you get married.

Whilst we’re never opposed to including a few trend-led pieces, if you’re looking for a glitzy neon heavy wedding with a ton of chintz, we might not be the right wedding stylists for you!

What if we have a different vision?

Our role as your wedding designer and stylist is to tease out the ideas that are unique and personal to you – we’re not here to tell you what wedding decor you need to have! We take a collaborative approach to working with you when designing your wedding, so our first wedding design session is very much about us getting to know you as a couple and finding out more about what makes you tick. We’ll find gentle, subtle ways to weave these ideas into your wedding decor scheme so that it feels authentic and unique and importantly, reflects you both as a couple.

Is hiring a wedding stylist worth the money?

Past One Curious Dream wedding design and styling clients would say a big, fat, YES! I mean, we’d obviously say that, but you can check out some of the lovely reviews we’ve received here. When couples ask us about the main benefit of hiring a wedding stylist, we tend to summarise what our job involves and how this can help you have not only a stress-free lead-up to your wedding but also ensures your big day looks spectacular!

Firstly, we’ll work with you through the wedding design stages to help you design a beautiful setting for your wedding and then, we’ll tap into our little black book of trusted wedding suppliers and creatives to help bring your wedding decor vision to life.

From sourcing expert wedding florists, lighting professionals, stationery suppliers right through to crockery and cutlery, we’ll assemble your creative team to ensure the vision is spot on! Of course, we’ll do this within your wedding decor budget to ensure there are no sleepless nights or worries on the financial side of things!

We’ll then create a wedding setup schedule which will be used by your creative team, so we can ensure the decor setup day runs smoothly. One of our stylists will be with you at your wedding venue to undertake the bulk of the hard work, ensuring everything looks picture-perfect, whilst leading your team of creative wedding decor suppliers. Some of our clients love to be involved in the setup stage, whilst others prefer us to take care of the styling independently – we’re equally happy with both options and, we’ll decide together how much involvement you wish to have.

Of course, one of the significant benefits of us leading your wedding styling at your wedding venue is that you can relax before your big day! We’ll arrive with our magic bag of tricks including all of the tools of the trade, that we’ve gathered together over the years of styling weddings so that we’re covered for every eventuality. You’ll benefit from our wedding styling experience and find out first hand why we’re an award-winning wedding styling business!

There are so many more reasons as to why you might wish to hire a wedding designer and wedding stylist, but hopefully, this gives you a flavour of our team would work with you. If you’re looking for a wedding stylist, we’d love to hear from you!
