Wedding & Event Planning

As Seen In The KnotYour Day To Shine is a full-service event planner located in Ocean County New Jersey. We specialize in planning weddings, anniversaries and sweet sixteen birthday parties handling all of the big and little details so you can relax and Shine on your special day.

Just because you don’t have a $50,000 wedding budget doesn’t mean you have to forgo the luxury of a wedding planner!

Our passion is to allow brides of every budget to be able to afford a wedding planner so she can have her special day stress free. Some brides want a planner to do it all, some want to provide some input but let the planner work out the details, and others want to be totally involved. Whatever type of bride you are, a wedding planner can always help — It’s your special day and you deserve to Shine!

If you are planning on having an event in New Jersey or New York we can help you!
