The person who you’re looking for is Bec Curry.
Bec owns Wagga Event Hire and has been styling weddings from the get go, originally deciding to go into styling to give couples the opportunity to have a wedding that reflected their personalities. Creative by nature, Bec is completely self-taught and draws inspiration from other industry stylists both at home and overseas. Bec says that she just LOVES to be inspired. “My passion is design and decorating, I also love a good wedding so putting those elements together created my perfect career.” And being a wedding fanatic myself I am just a tad jealous.
Surely hiring a stylist is a luxury most of us can’t afford? No. Bec is very reasonably priced and because of this (and obviously her talent) she averages 3 weddings per week during the wedding season! Bec has styled over 200 weddings in 5 seasons!! (Shania Twain voice) that don’t impress-ah me much….. jokes I just fell off my chair.
Bec often dishes out advice to brides and has generously served us some.
I decided to test Bec a bit and gave her this scenario:
I am on a budget, I have allocated $800 towards styling my reception. I have plain tables and chairs and a standard white marquee. I don’t have a theme or colour scheme. How would you style my reception?
Bec responded- “Oh love this! I would find out what flowers are being used in your bouquets and I would draw inspiration from them for a colour scheme. If they were say… plain white, my next thought would be drawing inspiration from the venue selected. A winery, a country hall, a ballroom. Styling to suit the surrounds helps create the tone and ambience desired for a wedding reception. I always meet with my clients and get to know them and their personalities and incorporate that into my overall styling package for them.”
