Do wedding planners do styling as well or is that separate?

Does a wedding planner do styling (like create my ceremony arch) or do I need a separate wedding stylist for that? Thanks.

In short, a Wedding Planners job is to focus on the details, logistics and planning of your wedding so your day runs seamlessly from start to finish. A Wedding Stylist however, focuses on the overall style, feel and visual design of the day.

While these two roles may sound vastly different, there is considerable crossover in their responsibilities and many benefits to having them executed by the same person. 

One of the most important aspects in organising a wedding is establishing your budget and putting a plan in place to achieve the day of your dreams while being realistic about what you can and can’t afford. This includes styling.

To effectively plan for where money will be best spent, your planner must first understand your vision and what will be required to achieve this. The earlier your styling is factored into the budget, the better. There is nothing worse than booking in all your vendors and then realising you don’t have anything left to make it look and feel how you want.

As an example, they can help you source a venue that provides furniture and decor that already suits your vision, cutting back on styling costs down the track. Knowing your venue booking contract and inclusions inside out means they can easily devise appropriate layouts and identify potential problems that may arise.

Your planner will help you source, book and manage all of your suppliers. They will also create a timeline of the day for each of your suppliers to follow. If these are all booked by the same person you can be sure nothing will be missed and your day will run seamlessly. 

On the day of your wedding, not only will your planner be able to manage vendors, keep everyone on schedule and problem-solve, they will also be able to make sure all design elements are arranged in their correct places, layout and site plan are correctly executed and assist with set up so you or your guests don’t have to lift a finger.

Having your styling and planning organised simultaneously ensures the planning process for your special day is smooth, structured, and seamless.

Some wedding planning companies also offer styling. It really depends on the provider and what they can accommodate. If you can find a company that does both, it’s ideal as nothing gets lost in translation and the less vendors there are to manage the better/smoother things run. At Canberra Event Management and Styling we offer Planning, Stying, hire and Florals so we’re a bit of a one stop shop and our clients love that they don’t have to provide the brief to many and can just be dealing with the one supplier for many aspects of their wedding.

As a wedding planner we organise, execute and schedule all 40 elements that make up a wedding you desire. We tailor the aspects the couple want and remove the parts not desired. Given we do weddings weekly we have a pool of great suppliers to assit in designing, building and on the day delivering what is required. Given every couple has a unique vision and look for their special day we issue 2 invoices to our couples. 1 is our services invoice aligned to the work we do on your wedding being styling, coordination, production or planning ( you can see what these are on our website). The 2nd invoice is the industry prices for the elements we will hire and build for your special day. Suppliers can ivoice you directly but you will pay full RRP which idealy we would invest elsewhere in your wedding to make the overall budget work best.

Hope this helps but email us direct at if you need further asisstance.

Not all wedding planners do styling as well, but they do work closely with their styling team if they are a big company or if not they partner with someone to ensure your dream come to life.
