Become a Top Wedding Planner – Who Will Be Your Clients?

 

As a wedding planner, your client may be the mother-of-the-bride or another relative, not the bride herself. Often times the bride is too busy with her career or doesn’t live in the same area as her upcoming wedding and is not available to spend time planning her event, even with the help of a wedding planner. Or, she just may not be interested in any details and hand the whole thing over to someone else.

For example, this past weekend I attended a party and met a bride and groom who are getting married next summer. The bride told me she and her fiancée are not interested in the details of the ceremony and reception. She went out to look for her gown, tried on a few, liked one, it fit and she bought it. Her wedding colors are black and white so she told each of her bridesmaids to get a black dress in a style that would suit them. Her mother is working with the wedding planner at her ceremony and reception location and handling the selection of flowers, linens and food. She only asked that she and the groom be present at the cake tasting.

Hopefully this bride’s mother is as easy to work with as her daughter might be. Either way, remember that sometimes your job may not be translating a bride’s vision of a dream wedding into a reality but a mother’s.
