What is Stopping You From Becoming a Top Wedding Planner?


Wedding Planners Can Specialize in Non-Traditional Weddings

Can you finish this sentence? “I can’t become a top wedding planner right now because . . . “

If you finished the sentence, you might be allowing a limiting belief stop you from having the life you want.

I have recently gotten emails from people who are thinking of becoming wedding planners or interested in getting into a different niche but are hesitant because they are not sure they can do it.

Here are the limiting beliefs I’ve recently addressed:

“I’m too old. . .”

Being a wedding planner isn’t just for young men and women. Wedding planners need to be energetic and willing to work hard but that doesn’t mean you have to be young. I know a couple of women who started their wedding planning businesses after they became grandmothers and were very successful.

I sometimes think that the movie, “The Wedding Planner,” with Jennifer Lopez, made people think they had to look like her to be successful and this is just not true.

“I want to be a wedding planner but I’m only familiar with the weddings in my culture. . .”

The woman who wrote this to me felt that she needed to be able to do any kind of wedding a bride or groom wanted. I told her with her knowledge of her culture, she had the perfect niche. She could be very successful since there was a large population who wanted her services in her area and she had been planning their weddings for free. I told her to set up her business and start charging.

There are many wedding planners who are successful specializing in weddings that embrace different cultures, lifestyles and tastes. You can do the same, just do some research first to determine that the niche is big enough to support you financially.

“I’d do it if I didn’t have this job that I need. . .”

You don’t have to quit you current job to be a wedding planner, you can start doing it part time, as long as you can give the bride and groom the attention they need to create the wedding they want. Read more about being a wedding planner part time in my article on my wedding planner articles website.

Don’t let your limiting beliefs stop you from pursuing your passion of becoming a top wedding planner.
