Event designers are focused on creating stunning visual displays at your wedding.
Your designer will likely only know you, your fiancé, and your closest family members who may have influenced your design decisions. These pros will personally source the best linens, flowers, and details (think: escort cards, table numbers, signage, cake toppers, etc.) for your wedding in order to bring your design to life. This mainly leads to customizing a unique item! From your wedding colors to your theme, designers also create a cohesive brand for your soiree.
Your event designer’s prime purpose is to transform your space. While many stylists will create contracts that allow them to collaborate with your photographer to style your event details for photos later in the day, most designers will leave once set up is complete and will return at the end of the night to pick up their materials. Your designer is not your planner unless the firm also offers that service. Because your designer is creating a personal brand for your wedding day, the option to work with her for the month leading up to your wedding likely won’t exist. And it shouldn’t! Plan to work with your designer for at least 6 months – 1 year.
