Are you undecided on whether to DIY your wedding decorations for your ceremony and reception or hire a professional decorator to look after the job?  Julie Ann Brown from Cloud Nine Weddings has written this post for me, on the benefits of hiring a stylist for your big day.

Your wedding day is the beginning of your life together and should be one of the most enjoyable memories you share.  Hiring a wedding decorator is a big step towards turning dreams into reality.

Professional stylists are experts at bringing to life your vision for this special day. They usually have a large range of props and equipment for you to choose to hire from, making far more economic sense than you going out and buying things you will never use again.

Most importantly, you and your guests will be able to relax and simply enjoy the day, confident in the knowledge your stylist will take care of everything. Without their help the job usually falls on family and friends, resulting in unnecessary stress for everyone involved.

Another little known fact about wedding venues is that often they require the decorations to be packed down at the end of the night. This is something that nobody wants to have to do after an evening of celebrations. When you hire a stylist they can arrange for this service which allows family and friends to enjoy and the midnight packdown fee is usually factored into your quote.
