For any wedding, it's critical that your vendor team is filled with pros who understand you and your priorities. Especially if you're incorporating cultural elements—you want pros that'll help you meaningfully honor your heritage. For example, for Jersey couples who want a South Asian or Indian wedding planner, NJ has plenty of talented, trustworthy pros to choose from that'll help you do justice to the Indian wedding traditions you wish to include in the celebration.

Why hire a wedding planner for your South Asian event in NJ? According to The Knot 2023 Real Weddings Study, the average cost of a wedding in New Jersey was approximately 57% higher than the national average. Additionally, many South Asian weddings involve multiple events which can contribute to a potentially larger budget as well as more involved planning needs.

So even if you encounter higher-than-average wedding planner costs in NJ, it's 100% worth it to book a trusted pro because the expertise they'll lend is priceless.

While every couple's wedding is unique, there are some South Asian and Indian wedding traditions and nuances for which it's helpful to have an expert. For example, if you're having a large guest list and multiple events, an experience planner will be able to help you find an Indian wedding venue that can accommodate your needs. Below we've gathered a variety of types of wedding planners that can assist with a broad range of wedding planner duties ahead of your celebration.
