I receive daily inquiries on how to become a wedding consultant- and Iím very frank and honest about the roles we play and how important it is to have knowledge from the beginning. While television and the media may have glamorized our industry, the real truth is - this is hard work!! This job is not for the faint of heart nor the easily offended. If you get your feelings hurt easily, look at another profession. If you arenít able to move at the speed of light and multi-task at the same time, consider another job. To be a wedding planner you need the patience of a saint, the skin of an alligator and the soul of an artist.
So, if youíve read this far - Iím assuming youíre ready to take the plunge! Iíd like to share some "tips" that Iíve accumulated over the years...and itís my hope that youíll read them and take note of what Iíve said. This is a wonderful profession, but...you have to understand that it is first and foremost your business and has to be approached and managed as such. Hopefully, my words will give you some insight into what being a wedding planner truly means and how to start your journey towards a satisfying and rewarding career in this field.
