For those of you keen to reap the rewards of having a professional stylist on your wedding supplier A-team, the first step is to find one! And so, here we take a look at how you should go about hiring a wedding stylist, and once you’ve found your perfect match, what you can expect from working with them to create your dream day!
How To Find A Venue Stylist For Your Wedding
Where all research begins these days…with a good old Google search! The obvious term, to start with, is ‘wedding venue stylists near me’ or within the area you’ll be hosting your wedding. Further search options also include the style/type of wedding you’re planning. So perhaps, ‘Jewish wedding stylist’, ‘Asian wedding stylist’, ‘luxury wedding stylist’ or ‘marquee wedding stylist’. From here, you should be able to jot down a list of possible wedding supplier contenders to investigate further.
Wedding Venue Recommended Suppliers
Your wedding venue will likely have a list of recommended suppliers, including stylists that work there regularly. A plus of choosing a supplier from a recommended list is that they will know the venue, in terms of what is and isn’t possible, accessibility, size, the type of decor it suits etc. The venue will likely be able to vouch for the supplier’s skills, service, and reputation. Qube Events are proud to be recommended suppliers at some of the North West’s best wedding venues, including The Mere, Merrydale Manor, Thornton Hall, The Old Palace and Stanley House.
Wedding Blogs & Magazines
Big day inspiration aplenty can be found via wedding blogs and magazines. From real wedding and styled shoot features to supplier spotlight style articles, this can be a great way to find suppliers that align with your vision. Most blogs also have supplier directories where you can search for vendors via type and area to help narrow your search. Some of our favourite wedding blogs and magazines include Brides Up North, Weddings & Honeymoons, UNVEILED Magazine and Hitched.

Process of Working with a Wedding Venue Stylist
Every wedding venue stylist will have a slightly different way of working, but generally speaking, the process of working with a professional like Qube Events will look like this…
During an initial consultation, your venue stylist will find out all about your wedding plans so far – venue, season, budget, style/theme – as well as your overall big day styling vision. They can then advise on the type of decor and colour palettes that will align with your wishes and set the desired ambience before pulling together concept ideas for your ceremony, reception and evening party.
Here at Qube Events, we offer free styling consultations where we will talk through all aspects of your day and provide ideas and inspiration for each element. As a result, all our wedding and event designs are expertly created with your style, venue and budget in mind. Simply click here to book a consultation.
Next, a styling mood board will be put together, and the concept further developed to include all the styling elements that you require and fitting of your chosen theme. At Qube Events, our couples are allocated their very own event manager who will work with them to bring their dream vision to life. This is done via a detailed mood board and style quote, providing a ‘shopping list’ of specially tailored decor for couples to choose from. Then the fine-tuning begins to bring everything perfectly in line and to ensure every detail is covered.
Your venue stylist should handle the logistics in terms of researching the venue and arranging access and set up for the big day, plus collection of the decor following the wedding. Our team has a great relationship with many top wedding venues throughout Cheshire and Lancashire, where we work regularly, but we also love the opportunity to style new settings all across the UK.
On The Day
Ahead of the proceedings, your stylist will transport all the decor, props and furniture hired through them to the venue and dress the space in line with your chosen look. This means you need not lift a finger on the morning of your wedding as all the hard work and finessing are taken care of by the professionals. For us at Qube Events, this is hands down the best part of the job – seeing the vision come together and exceeding our clients’ expectations with the wow-worthy results!
So, if you’d like a professional wedding venue stylist to take your big day to next-level spectacular, we can help! Simply get in touch to book a complimentary consultation and let the styling magic begin!
