“You will set up my wedding the night before, won’t you?’As much as we may love to be given access to your venue the day before your wedding, often function centres will not confirm access until a couple of days before your event. Sometimes the venue will book a function the day before at short notice also. Is it wise for you to get stressed over this? Sarah, says no, that is why you hire a professional wedding stylist to install all of your wedding decorator items. Stylists expertise lies in executing this routine every weekend, and will know how much they can get done in the time frame given. They also have access to additional staff incase a luncheon is booked the day of your wedding, and the reception venue has allocated a 2 hour turn around of your room. (Yes, it does happen! All hands on deck go go go!) I will suggest that you let this conversation play out between the stylist and the function centre regarding the access times - the great thing is by using a professional, it will leave you with more time to focus on other areas of your wedding that you have more influence over - like perfecting your wedding day speeches!
At the conclusion of the night when your loboutins are making your feet throb, and you're eagerly waiting in the soft light on the steps of your reception venue, for your limousine to sweep your way to your honeymoon suite to celebrate your first night together. You have one last look over your shoulder at the remnants of the day that you have poured every available moment into. You'll see all the wait staff packing up all the glassware, removing all the cutlery, blowing out all the candles. Occasionally, at the end of your wedding the function centre may request that the wedding stylist comes in and removes all the wedding decorator items at midnight. A good question to ask your wedding decorator if there 'will be an additional fee for the midnight pickup’? Often the wedding decorator may only have an hour to dismantle and pack up all of the styling items which were used at your wedding, and may have to roster additional staff in order to fill this requirement. Aren't you glad you had the foresight to organise someone else to do this for you, as you are now kicking up your heels!
