In today’s complex world of events, event planners are becoming more diverse – expanding their portfolio by adding event design to their skill set.
These pros are already managing budgets, logistics, finding stellar vendors and ensuring seamless day-of execution. Event design or styling services are a natural addition for creative planners that want to expand their services and increase revenue.

Busy schedules mean clients are looking to reduce the number of vendors they need to hire. There is a big benefit to working with one professional with the unique ability to fill both roles. As an event planner, you are already creating a timeline, liaising between vendors and thinking of creative ideas to present. Add draping, color consulting, lighting, tabletop and ceremony design to your services. The natural transition to managing event design in-house, and having full control over the aesthetics’ is extremely satisfying.
