Tented weddings are a gorgeous undertaking and involve a lot of "moving parts." BWE has a long history of taking on and planning amazing tented weddings at private homes on LBI, at LBI venues like Sunset Park in Harvey Cedars, the LBI Foundation for the Arts and Sciences, 101 Center Street, the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club and Brant Beach Yach Club. Tented weddings do cost more. Not just in terms of execution, but to plan as well! We will design a tented wedding package specific to your home or venue to include everything you desire while also satisfying venue, permit and township requirements.

For Creatives 

We work with couples of various budgets & are always happy to gauge whether or not we are within your price range during our initial consultation. Our wedding planning services start at $3800 for Wedding Day Management.

In general, it's safe to budget 10% of your wedding costs for planning. For tented weddings, it's closer to 12-15% based on the complexity of the tenting situation and location.

What's the average cost of the weddings you plan?

LBI and the local surrounding area is our jam. We know it like the back of our hand. We are so excited about the development of the LBI-region's wedding industry. We can't wait to introduce you to some of the newest venues in the area! 

Will you travel beyond Long Beach Island?

Although many of our weddings & events do get featured both in print & on some of the wedding industry’s top blogs, this is not something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in colorful, uniquely designed weddings with beautiful details & a great story!

Will we get featured in a magazine or blog?

Sort of! From photographers to florists & caterers, we’ve worked with some of the best companies in the area & would love to share theirinformation with you! But we do not simply provide a list. We carefully and thoughtfully curate our suggestions for you based on your wedding's style, budget, and the importance you have placed on a specific service. There are times we will give you multiple vendor suggestions and other times, when we will make only one. We can’t wait to customize our referrals to your style, needs, & budget.

Do you have a list of preferred vendors to use?

First, we always make sure there is a back-up plan for every situation. We stay on top of weather conditions (rain, flooding and wind are our biggest concerns on LBI) and we know from experience what to include in your plans and how to tweak existing plans to accommodate for Mother Nature. By staying organized & maintaining clear communication with your entire team, throughout the planning process, we do our best to eliminate issues before they arise. We also carry an emergency kit with tools and every type of tape & glue imaginable. But when wedding day problems arise, we handle them with discretion.Most often, our couples never even knew there was a problem!

How do you deal with wedding day disasters? 

We will work with you to maintain communication via
in-person meetings, email, & phone consultations to ensure that we are always on the same page. We will be there to guide you through each & every detail. If you’d rather chat by phone, or prefer Facetime to sit-down meetings, we are happy to help!

How many meetings will we have?
 Do you come with us to all of our relevant meetings?

This greatly depends on the logistics & complexity of your event, but you will always have at least one on-site coordinator the day of your wedding. But there may also be multiple team members working at different locations involved in your event. 

How many people on your staff will be at the wedding?

Let us know when you’re getting married & we will let you knowimmediately whether or not we are available. A non-refundable deposit & signed contract is due in order to secure your date. If you haven’t narrowed down a date yet, we can help! It helps to have 2-3 dates in mind to ensure that you’ll be able to get first dibs on your venue & other vendors!

How do we reserve our wedding date?
