Styling tips

Amy & Jen share their top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Purchasing Party Decor: “Gradually! As soon as you nail down your theme or style, start acquiring your decor. It is helpful to not have everything fall the month of the event (if possible) and makes the planning & prep process more seamless.”

Tip 2

Purchasing Food: “Anytime you are outsourcing your catering or desserts, it is best to place your orders as far in advance as possible. I have a list of go-to bakeries and food vendors in my area and would be so disappointed if they were unavailable for my event. Therefore, I make sure to reach out as soon as I determine what I need.”

Tip 3

Setting up Decor: “I suggest having the setup complete the day before the party. That way, if something is not matching your vision, you have time to find a solution. The day of should be for final touches.”

Tip 4

Plan ahead! “I am all about the pre-mock ups. It enables you to have a visual of what everything will look like on the big day. If anything needs to be switched up or changed at least you have time to come up with your Plan B.”
