Wedding Stylist vs. Wedding Planner



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!

I went to a destination wendidg at Beaches Turks Caicos and it was amazing! The resort is huge and a lot of fun, but the price is high so if you're paying for everyone, or budget is an issue, it may not be the best option.A friend of ours was married at their Jamaica property, Beaches Negril, which is cheaper than the Turks resort. The photos came out great (we didn't attend but we have been to Negril and it's beautiful) and she was VERY happy with everything. There is a couple's only sister property (Sandals Negril) down the beach from here with free exchange option so that if your family wants to stay at the Beaches resort and you guys want to stay at the couple's resort, you can visit and hang out with them during your stay but at night return to your resort where it's a more romantic and private atmosphere. Look into a destination wendidg planner to help you guys, most are free if budget is a concern. That will make it much easier on everyone involved in the planning and booking process. They know all the requirements, keep track of payment schedules, and whoever has questions can go to them instead of stressing you out with a bunch of calls and emails about every little thing when you have enough on your plate.
