19 Mar Your Warwickshire Wedding Stylist; 5 Top Tips to Finding the Perfect One!
If you’ve made the decision to hire a luxury venue stylist for your 2022 wedding in Warwickshire, then firstly – great choice! Expert wedding stylists can make all the difference to the overall aesthetic of your venue, and can help marry the vision in your head with the space available to you. Here at Bunting & Willow Weddings, we help take the stress out of making your wedding look beautiful – but not all luxury wedding stylists are going to be right for you! Here are our top 5 tips for choosing the perfect stylist for your wedding.
1. Look at your venue’s recommended suppliers
Most wedding venues will have a list of stylists in the local area that they have worked with before, are trustworthy and know the venue well. This means they are perfectly placed to help you get the most out of your vision and will be able to advise on what works well at your Warwickshire wedding venue. Bunting & Willow are proud to be recommended suppliers at Ashton Lodge, Stratford Park, Bordesley Park, Wethele Manor, Mallory Court AND Ettington Park – so if you’ve booked one of these venues, look no further for your wedding decor!
2. Ask your friends who they used
Have you been to a friend’s wedding and loved the way their venue dressing was done? Ask them if they used a stylist and who it was – one of the best ways to find great wedding suppliers in Warwickshire is via recommendation. You’ll have a great idea of what they can do too, and might be able to draw on ideas from your friend’s wedding for details you do or don’t want on your own big day.
3. Ask your other wedding suppliers for recommendations
Speaking of recommendations, your other wedding suppliers are often a great source of golden tips that can make your wedding day all the better. Choosing suppliers who work well together is a sure way to make sure your overall luxury venue styling look is harmonious. Try asking your florist for recommendations for a stylist, as their work will probably overlap – your tablescape will likely involve both florals and styling items and, whilst any good supplier can work to a brief, the magic really happens when your florist and stylist can collaborate and are familiar with each other’s working styles! At Bunting & Willow we work closely with our sister wedding floristry company, Lilac & Wild, to provide the option of having two suppliers under one contract. This enables us to provide one vision for your wedding day aesthetic – the result? Seamless luxury wedding styling and florals.
4. Check reviews
This one may seem obvious, but be aware that it is generally considered a red flag in the wedding industry if a supplier doesn’t have any reviews! Why would a venue stylist have their review system turned off if they were all good? If you can’t find any reviews, it either means the supplier in question doesn’t have any (in which case, do your research into how experienced they are) or they’ve hidden them because they weren’t glowing!
Just to put your mind at ease, here’s what one of our brides had to say about our styling services on Facebook.
“Highly recommend Bunting & Willow. Excellent and professional service received by Adelle and her team. Adelle made our wedding so special with all the little touches throughout the venue and always happy to help out, advise and show new items Bunting & Willow had to offer to make our day that more memorable.”
5. Finally, chat on the phone or meet in person before you book!
We think it’s really important to chat to your wedding venue stylist over the phone (or in person, when we can!) before you say yes to booking. Making sure you like them and they understand and seem to be on board with your concepts and ideas is vital, because you’ll work closely with them in the lead up to your wedding. Having suppliers you like working with and who are enthusiastic about your ideas, can make your Warwickshire wedding planning less stressful and more enjoyable!
