    What’s A Luxurious Wedding?

    Luxurious weddings go beyond traditional wedding celebrations. There is an unmatched desire to create a truly extraordinary event. Luxurious weddings are more extravagant, more sophisticated, and more personalized to offer truly unforgettable experiences. 

    While luxury is subjective and goes beyond price, we strive to offer experiences that feel opulent, are highly personalized, and unforgettable for both couples and their guests.

    Should You Have a Luxurious Wedding? Pros and Cons of a Luxury Wedding

    Luxurious weddings go beyond traditional wedding celebrations. There is an unmatched desire to create a truly extraordinary event. Luxurious weddings are more extravagant, more sophisticated, and more personalized to offer truly unforgettable experiences. 

    While luxury is subjective and goes beyond price, we strive to offer experiences that feel opulent, are highly personalized, and unforgettable for both couples and their guests.

    Main Pros

    1. Dream wedding experience: A luxurious wedding gives you a unique chance to create a truly magical and unforgettable day with a breathtaking venue, stellar decor, exquisite food, high-end vendors, and other lavish details.
    2. Zero compromises: A high-end wedding lets you get everything you envisioned and more without budgetary limitations. There’s nothing that is out of reach when you set out to do a luxurious or big wedding.
    3. Picture-perfect moments: Notable elements of luxurious weddings, like breathtaking venues, stellar decor, high-end vendors, and other lavish details, offer perfect opportunities for taking stunning photos and videos and capturing the magnificence of the event.
    4. Potential financial pros: Guests at a luxurious wedding love to give generously. A well-planned lavish wedding will attract more than gifts i.e., it can be featured in publications, channels and even attract sponsorship opportunities.

    5. “Awe” your loved ones: The feeling of seeing friends and loved ones truly happy and blown away is priceless. A lavish wedding creates a unique experience that your family and family will remember for years.

    Probable Cons

    1. Cost: High-end weddings are costly and may come at the expense of other financial goals if you haven’t planned accordingly.
    2. Planning challenges: The level of detail and coordination required can be overwhelming. However, this con can be dealt with by hiring the best luxury wedding planner you can find.

    3. Focus can shift: A poorly executed high-end wedding may end up being all about the extravagance and less of the true essence of a wedding day – celebrating love.


    Our Take!

    It is possible to have a luxurious wedding that doesn’t come out as excessive by focusing on the experience in equal measure i.e., lavish decor, while also splurging on live entertainment and activities for guests. 

    Cons like cost can also be contained by focusing on different types of luxurious weddings over others i.e. an intimate destination wedding over a big luxurious wedding.

    At Jennifer Tolento Events, we know how to plan lavish weddings minus the common cons. Let’s discuss your concerns.

    How to Plan the Most Extravagant Wedding: Tips on Organizing Luxury Weddings in New Jersey

    Wondering how we’ll plan your big day in the most extravagant wedding venues in NJ? Here’s a quick guide to the process;

    1. Define your vision: As a couple, what is your idea of an extravagant wedding? Do you want a romantic, glamorous, elegant, or whimsical experience or all the above?

    Having a clear vision of your ideal high-end wedding will help your wedding planner understand and deliver within or beyond expectations. If you are working with experienced wedding planners like us, you’ll get help when defining or refining your vision, including related factors like choosing the ideal theme.

    1. Setting a budget: With a vision in place, it helps to have a ballpark figure that your wedding planner will work with. If you won’t spare any cost, it’s also important to communicate the same. 

    The same applies to spending preferences. For instance, if you prefer splurging on a venue and entertainment, such information will help.

    III. Pick an expensive venue: With a fixed or open budget in place, your wedding planner will be able to find the most luxurious venue that matches important factors like the size of your guest list and logistical factors like guest transportation. 

    NJ’s best wedding venues have unique features, from water bodies to lush greenery gardens, water fountains, magnificent views, and more. Considering the key features of different venues is important for making a final selection. 

    1. Consider extravagant touches: A vision, an open budget, and an expensive venue won’t automatically translate to a luxurious wedding. You need some extravagant touches to get the job done. 

    First and foremost, you need a grand entrance to welcome your guests, and the execution is only limited by your imagination. We can execute everything from dramatic lighting to live music and horse-drawn carriages.

    Extravagant weddings also need unique entertainment, preferably from unconventional performers i.e. aerialists, fire dancers, etc. The catering also needs to be multi-course with premium ingredients and highly personalized service. 

    Stunning decor is also a must-have i.e., custom lighting, intricate floral arrangements, and dramatic drapery. What’s more, a luxury wedding isn’t complete without unforgettable favors i.e. premium gifts for your guests.
