I get many enquiries from people interested in becoming a wedding planner.
And immediately the question arises: How?
To be a successful wedding planner you cannot simple undertake a qualification and graduate with all the skills you need to be successful. A wedding planner is successful at their profession because that individual has many important attributes that when added together make them well suited to the role. Something that takes many years of experience and expertise. It is more and more a question of a creative concept, design and decoration. Most wedding follow a traditional format, but as a successful wedding planner it is unto you to create magic.
So how do you find your way to your dream job as a wedding planner?
You learn from those who have been in business for a long time and whose work you enjoy. There are now offers from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and other universities to book courses and further training for wedding planners. And when you have some theoretical knowledge, you have to master the next step into independence on your own and build your brand.
Since March 2009 I have been self-employed as a wedding planner, have seen and partly shaped the development of the industry, set trends and created a good network of various service providers. This is essential for me to implement my work at the highest level and to be able to let my bridal couples shine on the day of the wedding. A network that has continuously improved and refined over the years.
Do you think this could be the career for you?
After around 200 weddings, I would like to pass on my skills and knowledge to future planners. That is why I not only offer prospective planners intensive training and familiarization with this beautiful profession, but also the opportunity to join the existing true love WEDDINGS brand in the form of a franchise.
Become a wedding planner!
You don’t have to start from scratch and develop a logo, website, advertising material, etc., you will benefit from the existing marketing tools and avoid the problem of having to set up your own website without images and references, because that can often be one of the biggest barriers for new businesses. My goal in the future is to build a manageable network of qualified planners in Germany who are demanding and loving their work as wedding planners and who implement extraordinary weddings.
