Event Stylists vs. Event Planners vs. Rental Companies

the difference?

so what's

Here's how to know which one is right for you

We get asked this question a lot, so we think it’s worth addressing here! For starters, what is an event stylist?

An event stylist (also known as an event designer) is responsible for creating and executing the complete look, feel, and visual elements of an event.

Event stylists are not wedding planners - although they’re great, too, and we definitely recommend you still have one when you work with Vintage Charm! (But you certainly don’t have to.)

Rental companies on the other hand, simply rent individual items from their inventory, often on a per item basis, with no additional design or styling services.

Want to take a closer look? Here’s a quick breakdown of who does what...

If an event stylist is what you’re looking for, we would love to hear from you!
