This industry has become very competitive, as many people claim to be wedding planners. However, wedding planning is a very specialized profession that requires training, experience, and passion. Wedding planners bring to life the dreams and desires of couples, alleviating them of the burdens of planning so that they can enjoy their big day.
Good fit for those who may want to start a side business in addition to their full-time career.
Skills Needed: Excellent communication and negotiation skills (since you often have to negotiate deals and cost-savings for couples). Itâ€™s important that wedding planners are well-organized and able to delegate tasks. Wedding planners must also be flexible and willing to change as the desires and needs of the couple changes.
