August 22, 2019 | Posted in Trends, Weddings

Thinking of hiring a wedding planner for your Crystal or Emerald Ballroom wedding, but not sure if it’s worth the cost? It’s important to consider the factors as this will eat into your wedding budget. Yet, planning a wedding is a lot and trying to do it all yourself isn’t always easy. Wedding planners are there to make it easier. Here’s a look at what they do.

Set a Realistic Budget

You may have an idea of what you want to spend on your wedding, but what you want and how much you can afford don’t always line up. A wedding planner’s responsibility is to help you set a realistic budget. They’ll discuss the cost of various services and details to give you a better gauge on what you’ll need.

Choose the Venue

There are so many beautiful places to get married in New Jersey – like the Crystal and Emerald Ballrooms! Your wedding planner will work with you to find the perfect venue. They’ll look for wedding halls in NJ within your price range and schedule appointments for you to view them in person and make a final decision.

Coordinate with Vendors

How do you know which caterer, bakery, photographer, florist, or DJ is best suited for your wedding and your budget? With so many vendors out there, narrowing them down can be daunting. Your wedding planner, on the other hand, has worked with lots of vendors in the past and can help you in making the best selection. On your wedding day, they’ll also be responsible for coordinating with each vendor to make sure everything goes according to plan, and you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Create a Wedding Plan

Now for the fun part! A wedding planner helps bring your vision to life. From decor and order of service, they’ll help you work out every detail. On your wedding day, the wedding planner works diligently to ensure that everything you discussed is coming into place as it should. 

Your wedding is supposed to be a special occasion for you and your fiancé, but that can often be overshadowed by all the stress from planning. Wedding planners are hired to take the burden off your shoulders and help you to have the wedding of your dreams.
