As you may know, I work for an awesome event décor company. Since I’ve been working there, I’ve been to a few bridal shows with them, and sometimes I get confused looks from brides when I tell them that we are an “event décor company”. So it got me thinking that perhaps not every bride knows what an event décor company is and what one can do for their wedding.


An event décor company or event designer can handle as much or as little of your wedding décor as you want. Different companies have different styles and focus on various aspects of wedding décor. It’s really nice to work with someone who knows the ins and outs of wedding décor and who will have awesome ideas for you. You can have an event décor company help you to design your whole wedding, or just provide lighting or flowers. Most event décor companies provide basically anything that you can think of that would make your wedding look gorgeous. Draping, lighting, flowers, furniture rentals, linens…the options are almost endless!

A huge benefit to hiring an event décor company is that they can set up and tear down all of the décor for your wedding. You won’t have to worry about how your wedding is going to look with your friend or your Aunt Susie setting it up. The event décor company will know your vision and make it into a reality for you.

Tons of planners use event décor companies because they know that they have the ability to make weddings incredibly beautiful. Some décor companies also have “in-house” event coordinators (like me). It’s beneficial so everyone is on the same page, and your event will run seamlessly. But don’t get me wrong- having an event décor company handle your décor doesn’t mean that you automatically have a day-of coordinator. It just means that you won’t have to worry about setting up your wedding. You should still have a coordinator to make sure everything goes smoothly during your wedding too.

    This is a great post! I am an event and wedding planner and we also specialize in event design. Sometimes there is confusion on what we do vs. the event decor company … We don’t carry stock, we come up with the ideas and then coordinate all the vendors and details to make it perfect! Thanks for sharing the tips!
