If you’re planning your wedding, it couldn’t be more important to make the right choice of wedding designer and decorator. You need to choose a company you can rely on to make your day go without a hitch and to guarantee a memorable occasion that you’ll remember fondly for the rest of your life.

There are lots of wedding designers and decorators out there, and all say that they’re the very best, so how do you go about making the right decision? Here are some things to look for when you’re shopping around for the best decorators available today.

An Outstanding Reputation

Perhaps the most important thing to look out for when choosing a wedding décor specialist is an outstanding reputation in the industry. Word of mouth is often the most reliable way to find the right wedding decorator for you. After all, you need to be absolutely certain that you’re choosing a decorator and designer who is dedicated to offering outstanding quality, impressive value, unparalleled service and exceptional professionalism. You need to find one who will go above and beyond to ensure that their clients are satisfied. Always look for testimonials and reviews before you make a final decision.

Excellent Customer Service

You need to be absolutely certain that your chosen designer and decorator will appreciate and value your business. They must offer an excellent level of customer service, focusing on your satisfaction from start to finish. You will be able to tell a lot about the customer service experience you can expect from the way in which your prospective designer interacts with you. Do they respond rapidly to phone calls, texts and emails? Do they follow up with you and keep you informed at every step of the proceedings? If you’re always having to chase them up to find out what’s going on, it’s time to look elsewhere.

A One Stop Shop

When you choose a wedding decorator and designer, you need to be sure that they are capable of providing all the necessary elements to make your day special. They need to have a network of trusted partner suppliers who can provide everything you could possibly need for your big day and the skills to liaise and communicate effectively with all parties involved.

Open to Suggestions and Ideas

It’s your wedding day, and that means your input should be heard and taken into account. Too many wedding designers and decorators only take on board their own suggestions without paying any attention to what the couple themselves are hoping for from their special occasion. You need to choose a design team who are not only willing to listen to the desires of the couple in question but who actually encourage contributions and suggestions. The very best weddings are those which are designed in conjunction with the couple’s own vision.

Passion for Creativity

When you choose any wedding designer and decorator, you need to be certain that they have a true love of their job. Creative professions of any kind demand a true passion for their art, and wedding designers and decorators must exude a love of their profession. Only a committed professional will be able to provide you with the talent, enthusiasm, ability, skill and ingenuity necessary to create an event that brings to life all your hopes and dreams.


Attention to Detail

Professional wedding decorators and designers should be thorough and meticulous, having thought out every single detail to the finest degree. Couples need to be absolutely convinced that they will walk into their chosen venue on their big day and be amazed by every single aspect of their décor. Choosing a decorator and designer who will create the polished look you’ve been dreaming of is absolutely essential.
