Here comes the bride…and all that jazz. Just the thought of it all seems romantic and fun. At times, wedding planning really can sound like the perfect job.
So you think maybe, sort of, perhaps, you might want to be a wedding planner. Of course you’ve been to many a wedding. Sure you’ve helped your sister plan her wedding and possibly you even planned your own wedding. You feel confident that you hold some of the more positive qualities needed in a wedding planner. Then that ever present thought creeps in “Is this the right move for me?”. So basically, like the majority of us, when making a monumental decision, you are not 100% sure.
Including that great first step, speaking with active Wedding Planners and picking their brains, you’ve done the research. You’re sure you have several of those great qualities found in present day wedding planners. You’re organized, calm and composed, flexible, a people person and you are always able to recognize those “joy moments” in life.
Sure, you could go the route of trial and error and dive in head first, but is there a way to be sure? As sure as possible without ruining your hard earned reputation or making a great big career blunder?
Funny you should ask because, yes there is. A next, good step is a wedding planner course.
