As long as you have these three things on your side, you will find a ton of wedding planning jobs. In this article, we’ll provide you with a few tips on finding wedding planning jobs. Are you ready? Let’s begin.
First of all, you must have a portfolio of weddings that you have planned. If you don’t have any formal clients, you should plan a few friends or relatives weddings and then list them as your clients. Second, you must have professional business cards printed up, with your business name, phone number, website, and e-mail address imprinted on them. Third, you should put together a brochure consisting of company information and your philosophy about wedding planning. Not only will this establish you as a true professional but it will ensure that you stay ahead of the competition.
Once you have your business package in place, you should visit places where you are likely to run into potential clients. For instance, if you’re targeting higher end clients, you should visit finest hotels, luxurious gardens, and exquisite waterfront resorts. Once there, you should ask to speak to the manager and give them your business package. Afterwards, you should network with wedding caterers, wedding photographers, and florists. Once you’ve made contact, pass out your information and tell them that you are looking for wedding planning jobs. Ask them for referrals and offer to throw business their way as well. Not only will this open up a world of opportunities but it will help you become even more established in the field as you “get your wedding planning business name” out there.
Last but not least, you may want to rent out a booth at a bridal expo. This will cost you a little bit of money, but the investment will most likely bring your business to the next level. At the bridal expo, you can meet interested couples and hand out your business cards. You can even offer a free-no obligation consultation as a means of garnering interest in your wedding planning services.In conclusion, there are many different ways in which you can find legitimate wedding planner jobs. All you have to do is be prepared with your business package, be creative with who you hand them out to, network and go for it. In no time at all, you’ll have all the wedding planning jobs you could ever want or need. Good luck.
