An Event Stylist (me), is mainly responsible for all the aesthetics and overall look of the event. Our responsibility is to execute the vision of a client, one’s own or both. Focused on all the creative tasks in transforming a space. We work on the themes, color palette, decor, flowers, table setting, menus, floor plan layout, styling budget and anything related to the creative production of the event.
We also, work with vendors to help us create the vision with the guide of our creative direction.
The Event Planner, “is the overall coordinator of the event.” The planner handles everything that has to do with the event, like finding a venue, DJ, entertainment, caterers, decor and anything the event needs. Managing the whole budget of the event as well as negotiating contracts. Delegating all vendors and ensuring the whole event runs smoothly from planning to the end of the party.
EVENT STYLIST VS EVENT PLANNER
In Summary, an Event Stylist focuses on the aesthetics/styling & Event Planner on logistics/functionality of the event.
