Over the last decade, Uganda’s wedding industry has changed tremendously: budgets have become bigger; concepts are Pinterest-y; event styling is personalized; decorators are more creative, ambitious, and daring.
Unlike the previous decades where guests sat on linen-covered plastic chairs and decor, concepts were standard, today’s wedding guests are treated to a five-star hotel experience; first-class meals, carpeted or white floored grounds, professionally set lighting, five-star meals, international whisky brands, and so much more. But it goes without saying that this comes with a price.
This, therefore, means that today’s wedding decorator hires a few professionals: qualified electricians, construction engineers, florists, artists, and sometimes architects. So it goes without saying: all this comes at a premium price.
Additionally, your wedding decorator can partly work as your coordinator in the initial planning stages. They will introduce you to incredible suppliers. They know almost every supplier in the industry and will be able to advise on who to book and contact for a consultation. The right decor company must be able to capture your personality and give life to your ideas and your personality.
I would also like to make a clear disclaimer here; it is against their discretion to recommend other service providers. Most of the top decorators on this list are very busy and they usually offer clients a limited number of meetings. So once you meet them, utilize the opportunity to ask them for other vendors they can recommend. In other words, recommending to you other event service providers is a courteous bonus a decorator offers to their client.
Now that you know a bit about the current decor and styling trends, let us delve into the top five wedding decorators in Uganda;
Here is a shortcut: if you have an idea but your decorator has told you it is not attainable, schedule a meeting with iCandy. Their proprietor, Shamim is a creative who will stop at nothing to bring her client’s dream to reality. You have anything you like on Pinterest or Instagram, you can trust iCandy to recreate it; but definitely, only if you can meet the cost.
iCandy is also the queen of personalized weddings. Going through the iCandy Instagram page, you will realize that most of their concepts are personalized to their clients’ tastes. Additionally, they are able to transform old-standard concepts like their recent “Black, white, and red” wedding into a seemingly modern and new concept with their creativity.
Pink Coconut is an out-of-the-box creative: she is able to create amazing concepts from zero to the ground up. If you want a unique but beautiful concept, Pink coconut is your team. Pinkcoconut has also done more destination weddings than all the decor companies here. So if your wedding is out of Uganda, you definitely need someone who has vast experience dealing with the vast logistical and bureaucratic challenges that come with decorating a wedding in a foreign country.
Another area where Pink coconut outshines the former is in styling traditional weddings; Kwanjula, Kuhingira, Kukyala, Gusaba and more of the like. As I mentioned earlier, the company director, Angie is a creative who knows how to materialize ideas.
