Reinvent Yourself as a Top Wedding Planner


New wedding planners aren’t just young women and men in their 20’s and early 30’s with a little experience who are just starting to work. Some had a career, stayed home to raise children, then decided to start a wedding planning business part time and grow it into a full time business. There are also those who got tired of their careers, wanted to do something creative and loved weddings. They reinvented themselves and put the organization and planning skills they learned in corporate life to work by doing weddings.

If you have been out of the workforce or have been working for someone else and want to get your wedding planning business off the ground, do your homework. Read books on wedding planning and starting a business, learn how to market your small business (I know from personal experience that it’s not the same as marketing a corporation), and get comfortable talking about what you do. Visit and join wedding and event planner associations, professional business groups and online networking groups like and that keep you connected to the world and may even bring you some referrals.
