Wedding Design ~ Should I Hire a Designer?

Why I Should Hire A Professional Designer

Newley engaged couples tend to become obsessed with inspirational sites like  Pinterest,  and Style Me Pretty.   With so many online blogs and shopping resources available, many couples ask themselves Why do I need to hire a wedding designer?

Evey day over 200 major blogs offer new and original content specifically showcasing some of the best wedding eye candy across the globe.  This constant barrage of information can lead to wedding inspiration overload; More often than not, when we meet a new client they are so over-saturated with ideas that they feel completely overwhelmed.  Couples find they love everything- we can go rustic, but add in these vintage details and maybe that perfect shade of chartreuse can fit in somewhere. Hiring a wedding designer is all about working with a professional who will bring your vision to life.

So what exactly is a wedding designer and how will they enhance your experience? The first job of any wedding designer is to help you choose, edit and manage the millions of ideas you have and to help you package the most coveted ideas into a collection that will ultimately become your wedding design. If you were to compare planning your wedding to building a new home,  your planner is your general contractor and then think about your wedding designer as the interior decorator.  The skill set of a wedding designer includes graphic design, decor, lighting, floral design, collateral, architectural layouts, texture and color and more.  From invitations to thank you notes, a wedding designer is concerned about the aesthetics of the overall event. They have an eye for making sure every element is on point, and will present you with a cohesive look and execute each detail.


Too often couples think the decision to hire a professional wedding designer is exclusive to those looking to host an over the top gala filled with opulent flowers and ultra LUXE furniture; however most of today's wedding designers offer a full range of services including everything from Full Service Design to basic Consultations which offer a detailed road map to an inspired and successful DIY design.

The charming details of the Kunde Estate wedding we are featuring is a great example of wedding decor that breaks the mind set that a professionally designed wedding is about bling and excessOur couple focused on giving life to an affair that was filled with charming country accents and weaving the couples love of travel throughout the design.   The color palette focused on corals, peaches and splashes of aqua a perfect compliment to the giant oak trees and panoramic views filled with hues of gold, honey and flax.  The couple intentionally featured elements that promote a comfortable and casual feel for the day; however as you examine each item you cant help but noticed the polished perfection that you get from having a professional designer weave all of these elements together for you!
