What is the difference between a planner and a stylist?

Think of it as a frame and a picture. The Stylist plans what type of frame suits the picture best, what colour and textures would work best in the frame, chooses the type and colours of paint, paints the picture and fills the space with a beautiful perfect picture. The planner cover many of the basics from what framer to what picture to where to place the picture.

Many people assume planners are the same as a stylist, but there is a big difference in the two roles.
Event planners are known for making arrangements, organizing cover from budgeting, sourcing suppliers and vendors, scouting venues, planning menus the list goes on.

Stylist focus on the creative picture in the frame, we create the perfect backdrop to your special day, mainly focusing on the style, overall design, layout and concept of the day.

We design the event space in a story and mood board from everything in and around the tables, flowers, draping, lights, colour, location etc.
