In recent years, we've noticed a lot of pressure on our clients when it comes to choosing what to wear.

After all, it’s only the biggest day of your life and you’ll look back at these images forever… So, what you wear matters! And with the increasing popularity in peripheral events such as a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, an afterparty, and even often a farewell brunch…  Suddenly your shopping list is out of control.

Enter – A stylist. A wedding stylist will not only save you time by making sure you have a perfectly curated outfit for each occasion, but they also have connections with designers and retailers to access styles that might not even be on the racks yet. They have a keen eye for wedding trends, come and gone – Which is a skillset in itself unless you’ve been following designers religiously and know what’s “new” vs what’s “last season” in the world of wedding fashion.

So, what does a stylist do? They listen to your vision and understand your style and price point, and from there curate a range of looks for each event requested. Often this will begin with a mood board, and then funnel into a curated & clickable shop list. A higher end stylist will also offer in person styling options, where items will be shopped and pulled in your size in advance, and at it’s highest tier or service, a wedding stylist will be there on the morning of your wedding day to ensure every fashion detail is just right. This includes helping you get into & steaming the gown, laying out details, placing the veil, and offering that white glove service you see on screen.

Now the most fun fact of all… Up until now, this service didn’t exist in Calgary!

We are pleased to announce a collab with Atelier by Ensemble, one of Calgary’s top fashion stylists and custom suiting company, exclusively for JYW clients. Lauren & her team at Atelier have been a member of our preferred vendors list for years as the top pick for custom groom/groomsmen suiting, and now available exclusively to clients of Julianne Young Weddings, Atelier is happy to offer 3 package levels to style your entire wedding weekend wardrobe, for both the bride(s) and the groom(s).

We chose Atelier for this partnership because of their synergistic style which is effortless, classic and polished. They are even providing an on-site styling option, which is completely  new to Calgary that we have been begging for in order to ensure that our clients personal attire needs are fully taken care of on the morning of their wedding.

We’re always looking for ways to raise the bar in the wedding industry in Canada, and this collab couldn’t make us more excited.

Cheers to your fashion forward & swoon-worthy wedding…
