Why Choose to Have a Style Review

When my client first came to me saying she wanted a Rustic Themed wedding, I couldn’t have been more excited.

Rustic weddings with style include; foliage ladders and lace table runners which perfectly compliment my clients dress which has pretty lace sleeves. Handmade bunting is a great value product, you can buy or hire tonnes of the stuff for a fractional cost and it covers a huge area, up down and round and round.

I work in the Countryside UK, in Taunton Somerset, so we have a wealth of authentic ideas in and around this part of the world. Just driving through the countyside, on this bright sunny day I caught sight of a sign offering Hay bales and Hay stacks to passers by. This wedding planner and stylist had to just- ‘hold herself down’ as mini haystacks as centre pieces may not be everyone’s cup of tea. I’ve put that great piece of wedding planning action on hold for now.

As a wedding planner I like to keep up with trends and my main aim to to make my client happy. Being a busy lady it can be hard to find the time to sit down together for a style review, so every second spent together counts.

As my client is not a great lover of flowers I found some fantastic centre pieces I wanted to share with like minded brides todayTin&Book centre piece Idylic Days

My one tip today when choosing style items – ‘Consider the style items as a total package not as individual items at separate prices’. Meaning a style package transforms the vision of the wedding and can suit any budget. Combining these table centre pieces with circular tables and wooden chairs could bring the wow factor you are looking for.

Love Island to Love Weekender; Your Wedding Entertainment in a Coconut-shell

So when I first started styling weddings on Pinterest last year, they fell into three categories. Having spent the last year leisurely reading over material written by others in the industry, I found out there are many more to learn. My research is such exciting reading and so many beautiful photo shoots to admire it is purely thrilling.

Kevin Huish Blackdown Photo Booths sparked my interest in additional trending entertainment, up above is my admittance to being in the zone now, soon to bring much to the industry as heavenly possible.

As a planner my goal is to make your wedmin as stress-free and possibly even fun (don’t knock it, you haven’t met me yet!), and anything is possible ask Dan Brazier who is showing his lovely face above. One way to prepare my clients is to make sure they get the kick of having the perfect entertainment booked for their wedding. This really goes along way to easing the prospect of being with your entire guest list on the big weekend. So today lets share with you a couple talents I have come across in my research so far.

Maybe you fancy a cool and edgy welcome drinks or to accompany the chatter at the main meal? Watch performing live right here- Steve Young guitarist, who will pitch his performance appropriately. For a later or larger wedding I could recommend Live Wires a group of musicians for the evening reception entertainment; this group will fill the floor and so would perform after the main meal. For the ceremony and also for the more reserved bride and very soft and romantic wedding I have chosen flame haired Pianist Hannah, a beautifully quiet and emotive entertainment. Our stylists will have undertaken all the necessary checks if you take any of the recommendations, ensuring your peace of mind. It is popular to have various additional entertainments so please choose the level of service you require from your supplier or suppliers.

It is entertainment in itself working my way through this section for the first time, viewing rehearsed acts and finding special performances or finding a new little treasure or a band.  Taunton Weddings would love to support you in planning and styling your special day ensuring my clients are inspired by what is trending for today’s chic country bride.
