Oh Niki Occasions specialty, however, is its service as a personal stylist. As their official website states, “we can shop with you or for you to find the perfect outfit and accessories for your event.” Along with offering personal stylist services in terms of clothing, they further offer hair styling and make up artist services.

Author’s Take: Although the business is based in Jersey City, Oh Niki Occasions is willing to travel to help the client. Going off of that, based on the official website, it says they are willing to take assignments on short notice. The site states, “from day-of coordination to a year of full scale planning & design, we are both creative and detail oriented and look forward to helping you plan your intimate wedding.” Often when people run their own personal businesses they may overstate their qualifications, however, based on owner Cole’s collegiate experience and overall background, she seems like someone who knows what she’s doing, to put things in a simple manner. The play off her own name for the business’s name is very clever as well.  Oniki3Contact Information: 908-468-2WOW (2969) /
