Hold onto your hats, folks, it’s that time of year again. Today we’ve rounded up our Top 20 Stylists To Follow On Instagram and as per usual, we had an absolute ball doing it. Who wouldn’t want to scroll through oodles of rad ceremony setups, tablescapes and neon signage and call it ‘work’?!
This year we’ve already delivered a hefty dose of wedding planning gold via our Top 15 Urban Wedding Venues, Top 15 Caterers and Food Trucks, Top 15 Country Wedding Venues and 10 Unique Alternatives To Wedding Cake posts but today it’s all about dat sweet styling.
For those of you not in the know, let’s quickly clear up exactly what a wedding stylist does. We guarantee after you hear all about their wizardry you’ll be wanting one for yourself. Stylists work closely with planners and florists (or at times are one and the same), venues and you, the bride, or groom, to bring your visual dreams to life. They can work to your brief, or come up with an original concept of their own once meeting you. Basically, they take all your favourite things, distil them into one succinct idea and execute it with aplomb. Fab, right?
But enough from us! Here’s the fun part. Without further ado, let us present our Top 20 Stylists to Follow On Instagram, in no particular order, of course…
