‘Style it Like a Pro’ day

As you probably know I’m recently engaged and as a stylist the look of my wedding is a big deal – to be honest the look of EVERYTHING is important to me!

As well as blogging here I also write inspiration blogs on wedding styling and have styled a couple of real life weddings, so new wedding ranges and trends are always of interest.  

When I heard about‘s Style it like a Pro event I was really excited.  The chance to meet some other like-minded bloggers, see the new ranges and also see some styling ideas in practice.  

As a trained stylist I wasn’t expecting to learn anything new but it was a great refresher and definitely made me get excited about weddings!  Seeing all the products, being able to touch and feel them plus see the gorgeous looks set up in real life was great.  

So what were the in-house stylist’s top tips for styling a wedding display?  

  • Firstly always consider three main things when styling – height, detail and texture
  • Once you have those in your display then think about colour and theme.  Three of their main trends were shown to us – Industrial, Vintage & Woodland.  The boho side of me defintely liked the rustic, fairytale look of Woodland the best but they were all lovely.
  • Look to use a small amount of alternative ideas, such as mixing themes or repurposing items e.g. cake toppers as ornaments or cupcake holders holding decorative accents or candles.
  • If you’re mixing things together then make sure you keep a constant.  If you mix themes for example keep the colour palette the same.
  • Finally, make it personal – this is your wedding, pick things you love and make it beautiful in your own way.

Here are some of my favourite items from the day…

Industial look table centrepiece – I love the starkness of the galvanised metal and chalkboard area for information, plus the flowers add a pretty and fresh element. style it like a pro day wedding products via Always a Blue Sky Girl blog  

Lace parasol – the intricate detail of this full sized parasol was so beautiful and perfect for shading the bride or her guests at a summer wedding.  There’s also a mini version that can be used as a display piece that is super cute. style it like a pro day wedding products via Always a Blue Sky Girl blog  

Embracing bear cake toppers – These ceramic bears are actually designed to sit on top of the wedding cake but used as decorative pieces within the Woodland theme looked just adorable. style it like a pro day wedding products via Always a Blue Sky Girl blog 

We were told that around 75% of the products are developed in-house for some unique style you wont find anywhere else.  Great for all of us who want to be unique…and lets be honest everyone wants that on their wedding day.  I definitely was impressed with the range and will be persuing the website soon for a few key pieces for myself…Hey, I am engaged!  Look out for them styled in further blogs.
