Planner vs Stylist
Are you newly engaged? Planning a wedding can be a completely daunting task and can leave you feeling overwhelmed about planning your big wedding day. Don’t worry you are not alone and thankfully we have some super talented people to make the process a lot easier.
Wedding Stylists vs Wedding Planners. Who are they? What do they do? And What is the difference?
Today we are going to introduce you to some of our local southwest professionals, explain what benefits you can get from a wedding planner and stylists and point you in the right direction whilst planning!
So, what is the difference?
Sami, a local Margaret River wedding planner from The White Owl Collective explains:
“There is a common misconception that a wedding planner is similar too or interchangeable for a stylist; they are really very different in so many ways. Sure, as a wedding planner you need to have some form of creativity but our main responsibilities are to the logistical aspects of your wedding. We assist from the very start, with budgeting, correspondence & coordination of your vendors, right through to the running of the day making sure everything is set up and runs flawlessly.
As a stylist, this is where your full design base comes in. They bring your vision to life, sourcing the best vendors to suit your style. They provide you with assistance for all things pretty, helping to create that wow factor that you are after.”
Tasks you can expect from your wedding planner..
You can expect your wedding planner to know the intimate details about your wedding. They will help you stick to your budget and help plan the big day. On the wedding day they ensure everything runs on time and resolve any issues that may occur. Wedding planners:
- Help you budget
- Liaise with wedding suppliers and venues
- Book venue and suppliers
- Creates detailed timelines and floor plans
- Brainstorms themes and colour scheme
- Manages rehearsal
- Oversee the wedding day and resolve any issues that may occur
Tasks you can expect from your wedding stylist..
A wedding stylist is the creative force and is solely focused on the aesthetics of your wedding but not involved in any wedding details or timelines.
- Design wedding concept and make your wedding vision come alive
- Provides advice on style, theme and colours
- Styles ceremony and reception decor on the wedding day
- Hire and source props and styling items as required
So, do you need both?
Sami from The White Owl Collective explains:
“Absolutely, if you can – our services are invaluable. With our local knowledge, experience & relationships with the vendors, we are able to provide a stress-free planning process. Making your wedding journey magical and live up to the expectation that you have dreamt about. “
