There’s no denying that the ‘gram is a great starting point for wedding day inspo, so today we thought we’d round up our Top 20 Wedding Stylists to Follow on Instagram. We’re talking feeds full to the brim of exquisite blooms, fairy lights and statement signage, not to mention fresh and oh-so creative styling ideas. Yep, all the good stuff, guys.
Previously we have rounded up 20 of Our Fave Reception Styling Ideas, 20 Cool Outdoor Ceremony Styling Ideas and our Best of 2019 Styling Ideas, and today we delve even deeper. We’ll update this list annually so we’re always referring you to the best of the best wedding and event stylists in the industry!
But first, let us clear up exactly what a wedding stylist is. Aside from being creative geniuses in their own right, these guys take care of all the little (and big) details that make your day one cohesive concept, with personalised nods to your favourite things woven throughout. They sweep up all the glorious details, from cake stands to signing tables, confetti cones to knotted linen napkins. And those 18 rattan lamps of varying shapes and size? Yep, your stylist will source them along with all of your ceremony and reception furniture and make it all look fabulous too.
Stylists work closely with planners and florists (or oftentimes they are one and the same), venues and you, the couple, 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. They set up everything that you see at weddings (and often pack down!)- from hire items to table decor.
Now that’s outta the way, why don’t you take a peep at the feeds of the best in the biz. From art nouveau to fifty shades of beige, whatever your preference, we have a stylist for you. So, whip out your ‘gram and take a scroll…
