How Do I Become A Wedding Stylist

Gone are the days when only celebrities and the wealthy hired a Wedding Stylist.

The trend for personalised weddings has seen more and more couples choosing to include a Wedding Stylist in their wedding day dream team. But you might be wondering, how do I become a Wedding Stylist?

But First, What Does A Wedding Stylist Do?

The line between Stylist and Planner can be blurry (and you can be both) there is a distinct difference.  Whilst the Planner oversees the wedding as a whole, the Stylist is focused on the aesthetics; they set the scene and provide a polished visual backdrop for the wedding.

Wedding Styling as a Career

The things a Stylist does includes;

  • Consulting with the couple to discuss their wedding day vision
  • Designing a personal style for the day; from ceremony, to lighting, florals decor, decor and furniture etc.
  • Putting together an inventory for everything needed to execute the design and source items/provide items from their own hire range
  • Being there on the day (or the day before) to set up and pack-down

The great news for anyone with an interest in working with a couple on the look and feel of their day, is that the trend towards more personalised weddings with unique details, has driven up the demand for Wedding Stylists and that is why we have a course solely dedicated to this specialism; the Certificate in Wedding Styling.
