Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want everything to be perfect. That’s where a wedding planner comes in! A New Jersey wedding planner takes care of all the details of your wedding day, so you can relax and enjoy know everything is handled. If you’re new around here, we’re Well-Dressed Events, New Jersey’s premier stylecentric wedding, party and event planning company. We specialize in high-end, unique events for modern, bold, standout clients and we pride ourselves on cutting-edge, creative design, styling and event management. We have planned hundreds of weddings in our careers as New Jersey wedding planners, and here are five tasks your wedding planner will take care of for you:
Venue Research and Selection
Did you see our latest blog post about how much time it actually takes to plan your NJ wedding? Well, in that post we unveiled that it can take up to 40 hours to find your venue (gasp!). Your NJ wedding planner can help you find the perfect venue for your wedding day, helping you to get the date you want much faster than if you didn’t have their guidance! Wedding planners will work with you to find a venue that fits your budget and your style. They can also help you with all the details of the venue, like layout, linen choices, setup and breakdown. Well-Dressed Events offers a la carte venue research that can be added on to any package or used as a stand alone service!
Well-Dressed Event’s venue research service is super helpful and includes:
- A venue research planning call
- Delivery of up to 3 venue options, including information and data on each venue customized to your wedding needs
- Accompaniment to up to 3 venue tours to assist in making your final selection
- Contract review and date securement with your final venue choice
If you’re still not sure if you want to hire a wedding planner, but want help with sourcing a venue this is a great service to get your feet wet to see if personalized assistance is for you!
Vendor Research and Selection
Your NJ wedding planner will help you find the best vendors for your wedding day. The benefit of working with a wedding planner is that they have an entire rolodex of vendors that meet your style and budget, and can help shorten the search process. Well-Dressed Events helps you find all of your vendors in our full-service wedding planning package while our partial planning package includes up to three additional vendor referrals, which are usually in the categories of transportation, beauty, decor and finer details.
Good vendors will truly make the day. That’s why we strongly encourage you to leverage a wedding planner’s expertise early on to assist with your vendor search. Well-Dressed Events takes the time to sit down and understand what’s important to you. For example, if you want a photographer that shoots more candids and is not super invasive with their shooting style, we’ll be able to point you in the right direction immediately! These details are not easily understood from a glance at a website.
Your wedding planner helps you manage your budget for your wedding day. They will work with you to allocate your budget to the various vendor categories and guide you toward the right vendors that fit that budget. They will also keep you on track with the details of the budget, such as vendor contracts and payments. This is included in both our full-service wedding planning and coordination package. Again, since we do this day in and day out, we can quickly give you accurate ranges for vendors to help you make informed decisions on where you want to spend your money.
Your wedding planner helps you create a detailed timeline for your wedding day. This thing is CRUCIAL. Not only for your vendors but also for your bridal party and you! It covers all of the details like hair and makeup timing, transportation and photography, and flow of the ceremony and reception. This ensures everyone knows where they need to be when, and you feel confident knowing everything is taken care of! We offering timeline creation in all of our wedding planning packages from day-of to full-service. If you want to see a sample of some of our timelines, contact us! We’re happy to show you the level of detail that goes into it.
Your wedding planner provides personalized assistance throughout the process, but especially on the day-of the wedding. We’re there holding your bouquet, your train, your veil. Bustling your dress. Swapping your shoes. Making sure you have your signature cocktail. Making sure you have lip gloss handy when you want to reapply. Ensuring that all of your personal belongings, cards and gifts are packed up and put into a safe place at the end of the night, and so much more. We’re also your bodyguard! If anyone has a problem, question or concern. They come to us. It’s invaluable!
