To break it down – a Wedding Planner is a master of logistics. They have hundreds of events under their belts and bring all the pieces together – from sourcing the best suppliers for your venue, catering, entertainment, hair and make up, phototgraphers, videographers etc right through to creating the documents like a production schedule and master docuements to ensure for a smooth running wedding with perfect flow. A Wedding Stylist is all about the pretty. They style your ceremony and reception, bring in the beauty, create moodboards and suggest the best suppliers to use for each element of design – then bring it all together to create an atmosphere and a look (and feel) that is a true reflection of you as a couple.
