Become a Top Wedding Planner – 5 Blog Topics that Attract New Brides


As a wedding planner, what wedding planning tips would you give to a newly engaged bride? The current, January 2011, issue of Brides magazine devotes an entire section to answering this question with a “Guide to the First 30 Days of Engagement.”  Take a page from their book, promote your expertise by creating blog posts, articles and tip sheets, that you can distribute at bridal shows and wedding fayres, offering advice on what to do right after getting engaged.

Take these 5 general areas of concern for new brides, which were mentioned in the magazine, and write advice and tips that are specifically targeted to the brides in your niche:

1) What to do first

The magazine suggested budget, size, location and style, season and time of day. You can write a blog post about how to make decisions around each of these areas and have five days worth of  posts.

2) Budget tips

Write a list of the top ten ways for the brides in your niche to save money on their weddings. Of course, one way should be to hire you, the wedding planner who knows the best vendors, can negotiate costs and manage the day without stress.

You can also write a list of “Do’s and Don’ts” and be sure to write that hiring you as a wedding planner is a “Do” and the reasons why.

3) Who pays for what

Always a popular topic. The answer you write will depend on the how traditional or modern your couple is and their cultural backgrounds.

4) The subjects that need to be discussed with families

Write a list of subjects that should be discussed with parents and children, if the bride and groom already have a family. Topics might include the budget, location, guest list, cultural traditions that need to be observed during the ceremony, and how to include their children.

You can talk about your expertise in the area of handling the issues that are important to the bride and groom.

This information can also be broken up into a series of blog posts, articles or ezines.

5) The things that don’t need to be done right away

A bride can get carried away with doing things that she likes first, instead of what makes the best sense. (For example, selecting her dress before deciding on her venue.) So you can give tips on prioritizing her time and responsibilities. Here is an opportunity to talk about the importance of hiring a wedding planner to help with responsibilities and to keep a wedding on track.

When you share advice and tips, you establish yourself as an expert and as the wedding planner a bride needs to hire to plan her wedding.
