When building your team of wedding vendors, consider talent, experience and services. The safest place to find your team of vendors is at the Crystal Ballroom. Most wedding venues have a preferred list of trusted vendors. Create a list, do your research and interview your candidates.

If you are a younger bride and this is your first marriage, tradition says the bride’s parents pay for the engagement party. This is the big event where friends and family will gather to celebrate the engagement of the couple and welcome the husband-to-be to the family. Not everyone has an engagement party as part of planning a wedding, but it is a traditional celebration. While nothing says you need to stick to tradition when planning a wedding, the old rules have it that the parents of the bride also pay for and send out engagement announcements. It is not uncommon in this modern day for the couple planning a wedding to throw their own engagement party, and pay for their own announcements. If you have been married before, lived together with your partner for a while or are a mature couple, you will probably step away from tradition, and pay for your own engagement party and announcements.
