Starting a career as a Wedding Planner

A wedding is one of the most significant and happiest events in a couple’s life. It can also be one of the most stressful. A wedding planner is someone who helps couples with the planning, organisation, and management of their wedding. Hiring a wedding planner is like buying peace of mind, and well worth the money spent to ensure that all the details are taken care of.

If you are a great listener, have a caring personality and love to help people, wedding planning may be a great career choice for you. Brides and grooms rely upon their wedding planner to be a calming presence and to also have a voice of reason throughout the wedding process.

Project management or events management skills are also invaluable as a wedding planner. Understanding the ins-and-outs of budgeting, time management, crisis management etc. are all useful skills to any wedding planner who has a passion for what they do.

Working as a Wedding Planner

A wedding planner doesn’t have a typical nine to five work schedule, and sometimes needs to work a combination of days, evenings and weekends in order to meet their client’s needs. Clients typically work during the day, and therefore want to meet with their planner after work or on weekends.

Skilled wedding planners make use of basic project management principles to make sure everything happens without a hitch on the day of the wedding. Finding all the right suppliers and sourcing anything they need to make the happy couple’s dream wedding a reality. Not everything goes according to plan all the time though, so it’s important to be flexible under pressure to resolve any problems before the wedding day.

During the actual wedding day, hard physical work is to be expected. Wedding planners are on their feet all day long, and well into the night. They could be helping with table linens, moving boxes, lighting candles, setting up flowers, or putting out any number of small fires and overseeing a multitude of small details – the ultimate goal is to always make sure that the bride and groom are blissfully unaware of any upsets. It can be mentally exhausting work as well, as a wedding planner has to be on top of their game all day long.

The best part of being a wedding planner is often seeing the hard work invested, coming together to create an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. It’s a great opportunity to be a crucial part of that day, and make countless couples happy in the process.
