Are you thinking about hiring a stylist to set up on the day of your wedding, but not really sure about the process? Here is a little sneak peak behind the scenes of one our beautiful Mega On The Day set up package clients Laura and Micah. Laura and Micah had a gorgeous garden wedding on the front lawns of a family property. The event featured beautiful organic and rustic elements, long wooden dining tables with floral runners and lots of beautiful candles! It was so rewarding to put Laura’s beautiful vision into place.
When Laura first reached out to us she talked about her beautiful organic vision of how she wanted her wedding to look and how she had selected all of the beautiful styling elements. However, due to the more complicated process of holding a wedding in a marquee on a private property she really wanted someone to come on board about a month before her wedding and assist her in liaising with her suppliers, offer her some practical and styling advice and someone on the day to set up and style her wedding and work with her suppliers to ensure everything ran smoothly. Our Mega On The Day package was a perfect fit for Laura as it allowed her to enjoy the day of her wedding without worrying about any of the set up details!
The process starts with us sending out a detailed sheet for our clients to fill out all of the details of their wedding. A list of all of their suppliers and their contact details and then a description of all of the styling elements they have arranged and their ideas for execution on ceremony, canapés and their reception.
We met with Laura at the beautiful private property a month before her wedding and sat down on their lovely deck, along with some beautiful puppy dogs and had a lovely chat about all of the beautiful details she had organized for her wedding. At these meetings we go through all of the details that our clients have sent through to us and talk about styling of each stage of the wedding day. We ask many questions, address any issues if we find any and work out a solution and answer any questions before the event.
After that we take a tour of the wedding venue and discuss all of the furniture and styling details and how they will look when set up.
Laura’s event involved the set up of a marquee and also bringing in a private caterer for the event so there were lots of logistics to discuss! Laura then sent through all of the invoices that she had received from her vendors. After the meeting we touched base with all of her suppliers and prepared a set up run sheet for the day which we sent out to all of them a couple of weeks prior to the wedding.
Then finally the big day arrived! Our two stylists arrived on the morning of the event and got to work meeting the furniture hire suppliers and placing tables and chairs into place and setting the table. We met and greeted each supplier as they arrived on site. Then set up and styled the canapés and bar area and put out a gorgeous selection of desserts onto the dessert buffet in preparation for the guests to arrive.
Once the guests had arrived and were enjoying their canapés and admiring the beautiful set up we packed up and said our goodbyes and handed over to the caterer. Set up days are always a lot of work but we love them! It was so wonderful to see the wedding come together and to be able to bring Laura’s beautiful vision to life!
