How We Work

Getting in touch

Your local wedding stylist will give you a call to follow up on your enquiry, have a brief chat with you and check that your wedding date is free in their diary.  A free no obligation Design Consultation will then be offered to you and arranged at your convenience. We are happy to do this face to face or if it is easier for you by Skype or phone. Before we meet, we would love to see a photo of your wedding dress and anything else that you like style wise.  We know that brides to be LOVE Pinterest so send us links to anything you like!

Free design consultation

During your consultation we will ask you about your style preferences and your vision for your wedding day. If you have sent us through any ideas before we meet, we will be able to let you have some initial thoughts about how your wedding could be styled at the venue you have chosen. If there is something you’ve always dreamed of, don’t be shy, let us know and we will look to bring this to life on your special day! During the consultation, we will be able to show you examples of our work in the style you are interested in, let you see our high quality products and at the end of your consultation leave with enough information to put together an inspiration board for you.

We get creative

Your stylist will take away all of the ideas from the design consultation and create an inspiration board with images to help you visualise what your venue décor will look like. At this stage, we want to make sure that we are on track and have got your styling exactly as you imagine it! Your stylist may give you a few other ideas that you may not have considered. This stage is the favourite part of our job!!

You tell us what you think

This is where you let us know what you think of our initial ideas. Once you have had a chance to look through your inspiration board and the ideas we have put together for you, we can then arrange to discuss this with you to make sure that we are on track. If there is anything that you want to change, let us know and we will suggest alternatives. We will not proceed on to the next stage until we’re completely sure you’re happy with the styling. It saves so much time for you this way as it means that you don’t then have to worry if you have made the right decisions and can tick your styling off you large wedding to do list!

Design package

So, you’ve had your face to face meeting with your stylist and you’re happy with the style. At this point we will let you have the quotation for your bespoke design package. This will be accompanied by an inspiration board with the products to be used in the package and any photos we may have of styling at your venue. We will email this through to you and then follow up with a call a few days later to make sure everything has arrived safely as photo files can go astray sometimes!

Save the Date

You’ve received your quotation for your bespoke design package and you love it! The next step is for us to save the date in our diary and to confirm your booking. We will send you through a booking form to sign and ask for a deposit to secure your date. You can then rest safe in the knowledge that your venue stylist has everything in hand.

We offer a Pay Monthly Scheme for styling of £500 and above which allows you to spread the cost of your venue styling so that you don’t have to worry about paying us just before your wedding day. It also makes sure that you have the styling that you really want as some brides can find that funds are tight nearer to the day and then have to compromise on things that they really wanted on their special day.

Final numbers

Only 8 weeks to go!! We will get in touch with you 8 weeks before your wedding as by this stage you should have received all of your RSVP’s so that we can confirm your final guest figures. We always like to be organised so that everything goes perfectly on the day so our best advice is to try to finalise your numbers as soon as you can, it really isn’t worth the stress this can cause you in the run up to your wedding day!

Final payment

Only 6 weeks to go!! If you’ve not chosen to use our Pay Monthly Scheme you will be sent your final invoice for payment which we will need a minimum of 8 weeks before your wedding day.

We double check

Only 2 weeks to go!! Just in case your great aunt and uncle have only just got round to sending you their RSVP, your stylist will be in touch again. It’s always best to double check numbers and final arrangements.

It’s all in hand

Only 1 week to go!! By now your stylist will have made contact with your venue direct to arrange a suitable time to set up your venue styling, don’t worry they will also be in touch with you just to confirm everything is in place.

The wow factor!

This is it – the big day!! Your stylist will arrive at your venue to set up with all of the styling items. Depending upon your venue, this may be on the day of your wedding or before. We will then start the magic of transforming your dreams in to reality. You can get ready safe in the knowledge that everything is taken care of! When you see your styling for the first time, we want you and your guests to be wowed!!

The day after

Your stylist will go to your venue at a pre-arranged time to collect of all the styling items leaving you to get ready for or will have left on your honeymoon! We will leave your venue happy that we did our best for you to make your venue look amazing and hoping you had a wonderful day.
