Have you ever wondered what goes into styling a wedding? There are event stylists and wedding planners to take care of the event logistics but a fashion stylist takes care of styling all the looks for the bride, the groom and the bridal party. It can even extend to Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom looks too, depending on the client.
So many of my clients have a good idea of what they want to wear but they don't know where to start and find the whole process overwhelming. So many of them too have demanding jobs and they just don't have the time to do all the sourcing for their wedding. Some clients have bridesmaids with completely different body shapes and colouring and they don't know what style will suit them and they don't want to offend anyone which is where I can come in.
My client Ellie has a demanding job, plus she has 3 kids from a previous marriage and 2 more kids from her fiance's previous marriage which left little time to style and shop for everyone's looks, which is why she got me on board. I absolutely love weddings and I love making people feel special on their big day.
I started with having a coffee with Ellie to get an idea of when and where her wedding was booked which helped to get an idea of the dress code and styling. I also talked about the styles she had in mind for her dress which helped me work out who a good designer would be for her to work with. I also talked about her bridal party which were all the kids and of course the groom.
After the inital consultation I put together a proposal for Ellie and we worked through it together. I got all the sizes of her kids and her fiance and then made sure everything was available to her. I also set up bridal appointments and we worked on her dress every step of the way from fabric selction to every fitting with designer By Weave Couture Designs. Ellie ended up having 2 dresses, one for the ceremony and one to dance the night away in at the reception.
I also helped with styling shoes, accessories, jewellery, hair and make up ideas.
Ellie married Hans at Byron Bay on Saturday 22nd February and everyone looked so beautiful and so happy. Congratualtions Ellie and Hans.
