The best way for us to start the wedding styling process is to have an interview with the bride and groom (or bride & bride, groom & groom) and get a deep understanding of your dreams and hopes for your big day. Some brides have been planning this day since they were a little girl, others have no idea where to start. That's why this initial meeting is so important. Jess likes to allow 1 - 2 hours for this, enjoy a coffee together, and have an informal chat to see where you're at and what level of involvement you want from her. If you haven't started a Pinterest board at this stage that's ok, but we like for you to collect as many photos as you wish so that we can get a clear understanding of how you want your special day to look. If you feel your ideas are all over the place that's ok too. That's what we're here for, to bring it all together into a perfectly styled, stress free and bespoke event.
We'll focus on a questionaire which covers the number of guests, time of year of your event, ceremony location, reception venue, vendors, colour themes, styles, and another hundred things that you may have never even thought you needed to think about.
A $300 deposit is then payable and is a pre-requisite for the stylist to begin creating your styling proposal. This amount will be deducted from your styling package should you wish to book a full styling service. This $300 deposit is non-refundable if you decide not to move forward with a styling package.
After sharing your inspiration and vision with us we get started on your styling proposal. We research your theme extensively and create a 5-10 page PDF document, depending on the size of your event, setting out everything from your colour pallete, furniture, layout for ceremony & reception, flowers, invitations, placecards, crockery, cutlery etc. The proposal outlines the theming elements we recommend to create a wedding to suit your requirements & reflect your personal style.
THE LEAD UP TO THE BIG DAY
After our design proposal is approved by you it's time to sit back and enjoy your engagement while we take care of the nitty gritties! A few things we can attend to in the lead up will include:
Unlimited phone and email correspondance
Two venue visits to the ceremony and reception locations.
Two face-to-face meetings
Assistance with budget costs regarding flowers, lighting, furniture and décor, stationery and other styling elements.
Assistance or full control of sourcing a florist, lighting designer, furniture and décor supplier, cake decorator, stationery designer and any other vendor that may contribute to the style of your wedding.
We will arrange meetings with your preferred suppliers in regards to flowers, stationery, lighting, furniture and décor hire to discuss inspiration and requirements and will continue to liaise with these suppliers through email and telephone. Alternatively we can suggest a great range of suppliers we work with and can highly recommend.
Setting and attending vendor meetings with you or on your behalf. In the event the supplier is further than 50kms from our office an additional fee will be charged.
Sourcing decorations and other detailed elements is part of what we do. We will purchase these items for you once your budget and design has been approved. These items will be on-charged to you once the purchases have been made.
Contact with all styling vendors 1-2 weeks prior to your wedding.
On-the-day setup and coordination of styling vendors.
A team of two stylists is included for on-the-day setup, if more team members are required an additional fee will be charged.

ON THE DAY
Our biggest role will be played out on the day before and the day of your wedding, meeting vendors to receive deliveries and checking them off; setting up your ceremony, canapes / post ceremony celebrations and wedding reception.
Our team are problem solvers, if something is not quite working we will work with what we have to deliver and resolve any issues.
With a fine eye for detail, your wedding day will look beautiful.
