Tip No. 1
Find a stylist that compliments your concept, whether that is for furniture and prop hire alone or with a styling service too. Be clear with what you need help bringing together (not all suppliers will take on your own DIY items, but there are a few that will...hello!) see our PLUSH+ packages available. Honestly, picking up the phone and first impressions are great and usually provide you with more certainty and relief.
Tip No. 2
Find out the set up requirements from your venue. Whether you can have access the evening before or do you have to set up on the day? This will help you/your stylist plan within the time perimeters, though your stylist can often do this for you, just make sure your communication is clear.
Tip No. 3
Always have a professional photographer, and one in which you like their editing style. As this is your day, for you and your family to look back on for many years to come. Wedding Photographers really are the best at what they do, trust me you will not regret it.
Tip No. 4
After you have (most importantly) chosen your venue and your date is confirmed, write a checklist of everything that matters to you the most, prioritising in order. Then you can tackle your most important tasks first and get some sort of structure.
Tip No. 5
If you like a Pinterest Board, share this with your suppliers so they know what your concept is, it really is helpful for them.
Pinterest is amazing for gaining wedding inspiration, ideas and finding suppliers, definitely use it to plan your wedding!
Hire a florist....I believe a florist can completely change a look and feel to an event, adding depth, texture, colour and softness. They work wonders, and as stylists work with florists the majority of the time, it is always good to get recommendations and connections to your stylist.
