How to Become a Wedding Planner
Experience is your best teacher because we all learn life lessons from making mistakes and trying not to repeat them.
The wedding industry is no different, it is a very hands-on industry and learning by doing is a great education; but learning by doing or “on the fly” is both risky and irresponsible.
There are better ways to get both hands-on experience and proper training.
Any successful professional planner will tell you it is their reputation that has brought them success.
Building your name and reputation in the wedding planning industry takes time and big mistakes can cost you your reputation and make your future in the business more difficult.
Vendors will shy away from referring you or even working with you if you get a bad reputation from making mistakes with just one event you are planning for someone…even a friend or family member.
If you want to be taken seriously in your dream career, then taking the proper steps to earn the respect and acceptance from professionals in the industry is the best way to start.
At Lovegevity, we believe you should start with the end result you are looking for when planning your journey. Putting your feet on the right path is critical to achieving a successful end result.
At LWPI, we believe the best way to start a career and learn how to become a wedding planner includes:
1) Education as a foundation to setting your expectations and establishing goals.
2) Training by taking your education and going out into the real world to apply what you are learning.
3) Hands-on experience in a real situation to learn from experience and have the knowledge and skills to manage any situation as it happens.
4) Work with real clients on real events to grow your reputation one client at a time.
This realistic plan will take 8 weeks to 6 months and sets you up to work in the industry as a professional event planner or launch your own business.
