Bar Christmas, our respective bdays and, of course, any day we get to pet a dog, today is one of our favourite days of the year! We love putting together this annual list because it means trawling through the gram, looking at epic wedding styling snaps and sharing our finds with you guys.
This year we have already provided plenty of wedding planning gold including our Top Hair & Makeup Artists 2021, Top 15 Entertainers 2021, Top Caterers and Food Trucks and Top 20 Wedding Stationery Designers To Follow On Instagram. But today it is all about the decor!
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 21 Stylists to Follow On Instagram, in no particular order, of course…
