“Let’s get married in 4 months! One of the most exciting decisions my husband and I have ever made. And in that moment of elation it seemed like a simple enough task. After all for a small wedding what was there to organise? A venue, catering, some music – how difficult could that really be!?
You may not be surprised to hear that it did not take long to realise how difficult it really is to plan a wedding! We had the usual obstacles faced by many; venues we really wanted were fully booked, caterers were sending eye watering costs and most vendors seemed to have their own idea of what our day should entail. We felt discouraged that we would not only blow our budget but also end up with a day that was quite far from what we had imagined. Most importantly what was meant to have been a beautiful and fun process had become stressful and tedious.
At that point we decided to seek help from an industry professional. We called a few wedding planners in London, all of whom turned down our business (mostly because we couldn’t afford them), however one reputable wedding planner suggested that we did not actually need a planner but in fact needed the help of a stylist and introduced me to the Wedding Stylist. This is how Sundari came into our lives like the wedding angel that she is.
From the moment we met Sundari she was like a dream in comparison to all other wedding vendors we had met. She re-assured us that everything was achievable, she was fun to talk to, a joy to work with and an experienced professional in the wedding industry. Sundari listened attentively to what we wanted and she quickly got to know how we are as a couple. She used this knowledge to then suggest ideas that fit with our vision and our personalities perfectly. Sundari understood the look and feel we wanted for our wedding, she embraced it and used her extensive creative skills to style our day. Sundari was also respectful of our budget finding ways to style our wedding so that it was beautiful without testing the limits of what we could afford. All of our decoration pieces were hand crafted by Sundari and we were able to keep them after the wedding as mementos.
Sundari’s support didn’t stop at designing and making beautiful items to place in the wedding venue. She also brought with her an extensive network of wedding suppliers who are just like her. Professional, personable, down to earth, and creative – a long list of suppliers who respect and enjoy working with Sundari. Selecting the remaining vendors for our day became very easy with Sundari’s suggestions, and she worked closely with all of our suppliers to ensure that they were aligned to the style she had designed for our wedding. On the wedding day, Sundari came along and made sure that everything was set up just as we had agreed – working around a very strict two hour set up and one hour clear up schedule that had been set by our venue.
You may be wondering if you need a Wedding Stylist. Perhaps you’re unsure whether the Wedding Stylist is the right fit. I cannot recommend The Wedding Stylist enough. Sundari will be the one supplier you select who will actually listen to what you want for your big day and help you realise that vision. We have had no end of compliments on our wedding style and decorations. Everything looked stunning, really surpassing our expectations. By the time our wedding came around Sundari was a close friend and we looked forward to our phonecalls and meetings with her. We ended up with the wedding that we had dreamt of, within the budget we had set. All of this was possible thanks to the help of the Wedding Stylist.
