Have you ever wondered what a wedding and event designer does and how one can help with your special occasion?
You have come to the right place. We will explain how you can benefit from hiring a professional and will show you how your investment will pay off. So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty -- or should I say lavishness? -- of how an event designer can bring your big day to a new level.
Event designers are experts in making events look good and function smoothly. Each is different, but many have backgrounds and training in floral design or interior design. Others are simply creative people with a keen eye for detail and a love for all things beautiful. They’ll think of enhancements that most folks won’t consider on their own. And, they know how to bring those ideas to life.
Most event designers have well-tuned processes that simply keep tasks on schedule.
First, they’ll learn what you’re looking for. When you meet with a designer for a consultation, she will ask targeted questions to find out what look and feel you want. Are you going for sophisticated? Playful? Tropical? Themed? The options are unlimited.
Once the designer understands your goal, she’ll create a concept and meet with you again to show you ideas for linens, centerpieces, lighting, seating or whatever might be part of your package . You’ll be invited to pick, choose and tweak from the proposal until you have a look that’s just right for your style and budget.
Then, you’re done. While you handle other elements of the wedding or event, or simply relax, the designer will source the items and subcontractors needed to decorate the venue, and, the day of, will be on site to set every element up to your specifications. You won’t need to worry about a thing.
