How to get started being a wedding planner?

How to get started being a wedding planner? Topic: Best business planners
May 19, 2019 / By Rose
Question: I was looking at maybe becoming a wedding planner and am trying to figure out how to get started. What classes I need to take in college or other things I should look into. I figure maybe an MBA if I decided to start my own company after a while but I just want to get information on what I need to do to get started first. Any suggestions?

Get at least an associates in business. Then get a network of vendors to work with, you'll look more polished if you already have a "team" or know the best in the business in your area. Give a good discount for the first couple of clients to make a name for yourself and hopefully word of mouth will help spread the word. Maybe even ask a wedding planner in a nearby city if you could apprentice with her for a couple of weddings to get the swing of things. Look into small business grants from the government to start up your business. And most of all, have patience with those bridezillas! Good luck!

ACPWC does not help with job placement. That organization is primarily about education (limited) and networking. It's not a college. And you don't "find a job" as an event/wedding planner. You start a business by yourself, or join another planner's company. It's not like your typical 40 hour a week job with a salary and benefits. You are self-employed, no health insurance, no benefits, no paid time off, and you have to be available to your clients 24/7. How you succeed depends 100% on your drive. You can't work a mere 40 hours a week and succeed as a wedding/event planner. The most successful planners (who aren't corporate planners, most of which have advanced marketing degrees) make around $30,000 a year. Most planners make less than $20,000, and are only able to own their own businesses because they have a spouse/partner who makes most of the family income and has health insurance through their job. I'm not trying to dissuade you, exactly... just trying to get you to realize that if you are in a go-to-class, graduate, get-a-job mindset about event planning, then you're about to waste your money and your time.

First of all CONGRATS!!! I just got married 8 months ago and I started with a very limited budget so I couldn't afford a wedding planner. By the time everything was said and done my family and friends and I had spent almost $5000.00 and I swear we did everything the cheapest way I know how. Lots of little things start to add up after a while lol. If my husband and I would have just paid the $2500.00 to the wedding planner we talked to to begin with we would have came out alot cheaper but I wouldn't change it now even if I could. I had the best time of my life planning that wedding.
