The styling of your wedding venue Imprints your personal vision and Style on your big day – however There a few considerations to pause and reflect on before leaping into The ‘styling” phase of any big day.
Any small detail can throw off the whole look of the vision of your wedding and result in expensive and time-consuming mistakes. So, at the very least it is a sound decision to take a “consult” with an experienced and professional wedding planner at
the start of this important journey to your day.
Luxe Unforgettable Events
The very first thing that an experienced styling or planning service will discuss and advise you and your partner to consider is your budget for the big day. When meeting with the venues of choice across both the ceremony and reception spaces, remember that accessibility and distance can add not only hours to the setup of the day but also many financial and logistic aspects that you many not of considered.
Remember all of this “styling” is also external to the other elements of the day e.g.: transport, photography, videography and the practical ‘on the day’ coordination processes across all suppliers and vendors.
When viewing a venue ensure you ask what’s included in the hire and ask for this in flyer form so you have a copy of it when you leave the venue. The two most common options are:
Venues that supply you with the basic facilities such
as tables, chairs, table and stem ware, cutlery, linen,
napery etc. plus any coordination aspects that the venue
specifically will deliver for you.
The Park Melbourne
A “shell” or blank canvas is where you will have to bring
everything in (and we mean everything) from tables,
chairs, linen, napery, floral decor, props and catering
plus all the on the day aspects across all spaces too.
It’s not at all unmanageable, but most certainly not the
easiest of wedding day aspects to handle also without
guidance across planning, logistics, access, delivery
and pack down – this requires some discussion and
consideration to progress successfully on the day.
Established venues have elements of choice in situ
that can reduce the level of external supplier and
vendor engagement. However, if you choose the “blank
canvas” option the planning timeline is often extended
significantly (up to 12 months in some instances) and
increases the number of suppliers and vendors required
also to ensure every element is appropriately met.
You also can expect this option to also increase your
wedding budget - considerably.
Stamford Plaza Auckland
While the blank canvas option allows you the most
flexibility in picking and choosing your vendors, it needs
to be considered within the context of your budget scope
and how much time both you and your partner have to
devote to the logistic aspects of styling.
An experienced stylist and planning service can help you
avoid the time-consuming tasks related to cost quotes,
contract negotiations, cost schedule payments and
timeline delivery scheduled for set up and pack down
on the big day across both the ceremony and reception
spaces (and this is on top of the aesthetic of the styling
of the day!).
There are many different styles and looks to choose
from when styling your wedding venue, and at LUXE
– Unforgettable Events we would consider each one
in context with you and your partner’s preferred
vision and assist you to arrive at a unique and
personalised agreement as to the look and style for your
unforgettable day – in budget for your day.
