Diversity in Decor

Aug 01, 2019

Wedding decorators nowadays run the gamut from the minimalist to the extravagant to the avant garde. They also cater to varying budgets with packages starting at different price points.

Things to look for in a decorator:

  • Versatility in their creative expressions.
  • A signature style that catches your eye.
  • Experience in various locations and settings.
  • Willing to negotiate and customise a package based on your budget.

Some questions to ask:

  • How big is their team and how many people will there be at your event?
  • Are the external vendors they collaborate with reliable?
  • What ideas do they have as a backup plan, particularly for outdoor events?
  • Will there be sketches to see or photos of previous work to view?

A few more tips:

  • Link up your decorator with the catering sales team at your venue so that they can plan ahead and coordinate better.
  • Run through the logistics of delivery and set-up to avoid delays on day of event.
  • Confirm timeframe for tear down after event with your venue to avoid additional charges.
