5 Traits of Successful Wedding Planners


Characteristics of Successful Wedding Planners

Everyone knows wedding planners need to be organized and detail-oriented but it takes much more than just those traits for you to be a success. The current issue of Special Events magazine features an article that names the personality traits that top professionals have, and you should too.

Here are 5 of the traits they listed along with why I think they’re important:

1) Leader

Your own staff, the wedding vendors and the bride will be looking to you for leadership during the planning process and the wedding itself. You need to be able to motivate people, give directions and get people to listen to you.

2) Time manager

You need to keep track of the wedding timeline and get wedding vendors and the bride and groom to meet their time commitments for the wedding to go off without a hitch.

3) Problem-solver

Unexpected things can happen at a wedding and you need to resolve any emergencies that arise. (This means you also need to be able to always stay calm and be a quick thinker!)

4) Artistic

Whether or not you’re a wedding designer in addition to be a wedding planner, you need to have, or develop, an eye for event design. This will help you understand the work of wedding design vendors and will enable you to help your brides make design decisions.

5) Motivated

You must always have a positive attitude and be ready and willing to work hard and do your best for your brides and for the success of your business.
