Wedding planning is one of the most exciting and rewarding home-based jobs. Why? Because if you are a wedding planner, you are able to contribute to the one of the most important days in people’s lives and make it a success as it should be.
You want to know how big the market for this job is. Well, this year the number of wedding ceremonies in the USA is expected to amount to 2.5 million, while the percentage of couples that use the services of wedding planners has grown twice from 7 to 15 percent over the recent three years. So wedding planners are worth their weight in gold and so can you!
You must have attended a wedding ceremony or played the central part in one yourself, so you must be familiar with the fuss and hustle of the day. There are mountains of things to do: the bridal dress, the judge of peace or rabbi, guests and guests’ invitations, seatings, cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc.
Remember “Wedding Planner,” a movie, where Jennifer Lopez demonstrated her skills as a wedding planner. That is about how it goes.
Generally, no special education or outstanding skills are required for this position, but good organizational and communication skills are a big plus. You can obtain some insider tips and expert advice, if you buy one of those guides online or attend a wedding planner course, which is another home-based opportunity.
Suppose, you have finished a course and read a couple of wedding planner guides. What is then? Where is the job? How to break into a career?
Well, there are several kinds of employers that hire bridal consultants (another name for a wedding planner). The list of those naturally includes churches, resorts, hotels, caterers, bridal shops, wedding planning companies per se and many more. You can contact them and see what conditions they offer.
Wedding Crashers is another business for those who favor thinking outside the box. Can be fun and adventure and can bring good connections, but no direct income. Just kidding.
