Planning Weddings as a Professional
When you attend a beautiful wedding and are surrounded by happiness, its only normal to want to hold on to that feeling of elation. And let's face it. Everyone who is new to the industry thinks a wedding planner's job consists of a normal 9 to 5 work day. After all, how hard can it be? If it's planned right, there is no reason to work more than a 20 hour week. You show up on an event day and just tell people where to go and after all, the vendors involved do all the work. Most people think a planner's job is to help find a few vendors, select pretty colors and work a few hours during the event and go home. Not exactly. This couldn't be further from the truth.
To be taken seriously as a wedding professional and become successful at what you do, you will have to work extremely hard to 'get it right' and you won't work a typical 9 to 5 work day as you've suspected. Yes, you can choose your work schedule, but sometimes it can be more like 14 to 16 hour days, especially during the event itself. However, with proper guidance and the 'know-how', as well as self-discipline, dedication and good tools of the trade, you can be on your way to a wonderful new career in weddings in no time. The best part is that you can actually choose how successful you want to be.
It takes perseverance and determination as well as passion. You learn to live, breath and sleep 'all things weddings'. There is no in between and no gray area. You either love weddings or you do not. If you are thinking this is a 'get rich quick' business and you'll make a ton of money just by wearing a microphone on your ear, you're headed in the wrong direction. If you do not love weddings, but think you'll 'wing it anyway', don't bother. We're letting you know from the beginning, it won't work. However, those who truly love weddings and special events, can usually think of nothing else, and are the most successful and amazing wedding planners in the world.
Weddings are BIG business. Brides pay 'professionals' to ensure they have the weddings of their dreams. They put their confidence in seasoned professionals because they know we have the organizational skills, connections and business savvy to make sure they're taken care of in every way possible.
So here's the big question? Are you ready to find out if a career in weddings is for you? If you've made up your mind that this IS the career move for you, then come explore with us the many opportunities available to get you started. The Bridal Library is the catapult to A Career In Weddings.
