Is a wedding planning business a good idea?
Planning weddings just seem so fun, but is it really a good idea to start that kind of business in this kind of economy?
It most certainly is, but make sure you know what you are doing.
There is a lot of bridezillas out there that would not think twice to sue you if something went wrong.
A quick short crash course in event management would really come in handy, specially with the legal side of things; I have friends who are wedding planners and they earn over 300k a year.
Yes , but do your homework and good luck.
i think so alot of peoople who get married need help planning the wedding i say go for it good luck
@yvens: Thanks so much! I was definitely considering on taking a course in Bridal Consulting. I find it pretty dangerous to go into something that deals with handling other people's money blindly. But I will definitely do my homework on that!
@jasper420: I thought the same thing, but with the economy, most people are holding off on weddings. But I think I'll definitely give it a shot.
Wedding Planning is a great business to get into in any economy. But like yvens said make sure to do your homework.
I have a Wedding website ( www.weddingwise.comze.com ) and there is an article I wrote about choosing a wedding planner. You might want to check out the site...scroll down to find the article...it might give you some good ideas to get started.
Good Luck to you
Here in Australia, you can become a wedding celebrant by doing a short course to be qualified. If you can do that where you live, it would be a nice little addition to wedding planning.
This would be fun, but it may be a slow start. If you are great at multi-tasking and pay attention to detail, go for it. You won't know until you try it. Good luck!
Absolutely a great idea that a wedding planner get in on the planning and arranging. Someone who is expert usually will save the couple money, time, nerves and help to create a more enjoyable atmosphere. Of course, there is the presumption that the planner's fee is not exhorbitant.
The wedding planner doesn't have to be a professional, it can be someone who is good at organising and getting things done in a creative and economic way.
I think that women (especially mothers of the bride) get kind of hysterical when it comes to weddings. If you can deal with that, it might be good.
I would wait for the economy to pick up before jumping into it all the way. People won't spend on a wedding when they don't have jobs.
Ofcourse,wedding planning business a good idea.
Luxury Limos & Town Car Service provides limos for hire,wedding limousine services in the greater Seattle area.
I think the end of your question has to be a big consideration "the economy"
When money becomes tight essentials become the priority, I am in the catering business and a major cost is the food (depending on how many guests you invite) and I have noticed huge cut backs from people planning weddings over the past 3 years.
The recession is also effecting the wedding planners I work with on a regular basis, this year things have been so difficult for them they have all taken second jobs or moved into other areas of the wedding business.
When times are good and the economy bounces back very good money can be made but I can't see that happening for a few years yet unfortunately.
Take a look at my wedding catering website http://www.eccservices.co.uk/wedding-catering.html - you will also notice links to my wedding catering articles at the bottom that might inspire some ideas.
A wedding planning business is a good idea in any economy. People will always get married. You want to be mindful of your own expenses. Will you offer full services or just step in to help couples fill in the gap. Will you charge a flat fee or a percentage of the total wedding cost? There may be months where you have a wedding every weekend or possibly even 2 a day and then nothing. Good business planning, will tide you over during lean times. You can also expand to special event planning, which covers birthdays, anniversaries and baby showers to help make up any budgetary shortfalls.

Is using humor in your hubs a good idea?I think it can make your reader feel comfortable and familiar with you, but some might argue that humor makes you look less professional or knowledgeable. What do you all think?
