The term “Wedding Stylist” is relatively new to many brides. Let’s take a moment to clarify the role an Event and Wedding Stylist plays on your wedding day, and how it differs from a traditional Wedding Planner.
What is the difference between a Stylist and a Planner?
Basically, an Event Planner takes care of the more personal details of the wedding planning process, while an Event Stylist focuses on the aesthetics and overall atmosphere of the event.
A planner can oversee aspects including, but not limited to: Wedding attire, ordering invitations & handling RSVPs, limos & transportation, guest accommodations & room blocks, meetings with wedding officiant and overall personal assistance during the wedding day.
A stylist can oversee aspects including, but not limited to: Developing a custom design, partnering with florist and other vendors to create and maintain cohesive styling throughout all facets of wedding, creating the overall day-of vision through fabric, décor, flowers and lighting, and overseeing all design aspects during the wedding day.
Both a planner and a stylist are very important, and neither should be overlooked!
