FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

What is a Ready-To-Wear {RTW} event decor?

Ready-To-Wear {RTW} Event Decor is a concept we created since 2016. We're proud to be one of the first to have introduced this concept in the Ottawa region!

 

A RTW event decor is a look designed in advance (pre-conceived), using fabulous elements from our decor inventory and silk floral collection. Every look is designed to create the particular mood you want to set in your event space. Ultimately, a RTW decor is your "event in a box". The idea is to shop a look you like based on the mood you want for your special event, choose the Do it Yourself (DIY) set up option by which you receive your event decor in a box with set up instructions and/or tutorials. We also offer other set up options, such as a K-stylist assistance day of event or full installation and take-down service (find out more below).  

 

New RTW designs are regularly created from our design studio to offer you an evergreen collection of readily available looks to dress-up your event space. Each RTW look comes with a moodboard for quickview. Our social media pages also show inspirational ideas from other sources for floral bouquets, invitations, and cakes, to complete a look we offer.  

 

RTW looks cater to various types of celebrations: grand or intimate weddings, private dinners or events, home parties, birthday or wedding anniversaries, corporate functions, business launches, non profit events, and much more! 

Why we named our pre-conceived looks Ready-To-Wear?

We see event design like fashion and your event space like the mannequin that needs a dress!

So, Ready-To-Wear event decor is our way of calling looks which are fashionable and ready to dress up your event space. Let's agree that your event space is ever more charming when dressed-up in your personal style and taste! 

How is a Ready-To-Wear event decor different than a custom design? 

A Ready-To-Wear event decor is a pre-conceived look ready for set up in your reception space. Very little design consultation is needed for this service since RTW looks are available on our website for viewing, rental shopping and quick booking! However, you can customize a RTW look by interchanging elements from various looks. Some looks are also available in other colour palettes and floral options. 

 

Ultimately, RTW designs are conceived to create Simple. Modern. Chic. looks with our Katalayi signature touch, as well as to ensure decor packages are attainable and within budget reach.   

A Custom design is a look conceived following your full design planning consultation with Katalayi's design team. A custom design is entirely personalized to Your tastes following many rigourous hours of conceptualizing and artwork. Through our custom design service, we ensure exclusive and unique designs to ensure your event is one of a kind! 

Pricing for our custom design service is based on the level of intensity of your decor concept.
