When you become a wedding planner who's so good at what you do, you open doors to a very high-paying job! Getting paid, working freelance, and having fun are only some of its fringe benefits.
1. Getting paid as a wedding planner
Did you know that you can earn as much as $25,000 to $35,000 when you become a wedding planner? The rate goes even higher when you go beyond the tasks of being a wedding coordinator.
Once you take on the bigger responsibility and work scope of being a wedding manager, you can earn as much as $45,000 to $65,000. This opens a whole, new range of earning opportunities for you – and we haven't gone into tips and commissions yet!
2. Working freelance as an independent consultant
When you become a wedding planner, you are also known as a bridal consultant. You officially become a part of the event planning profession. As long as you have a business license and a card with all your contact details, you can set up your own wedding planning business.
An independent outfit, you enjoy the benefits of flexible work hours and customized jobs which are mostly dictated by you. This equates to a lot of personal freedom!
3. Having fun as an arranger of events
It goes without saying that you will enjoy the job of arranging happy endings for people. As an individual, you become part of creating the happiest day in a couple's life. Because every couple is unique, you get to explore different designs and work on special concepts.
Granted that everything goes well, the work environment is generally upbeat and friendly. As long as you're prompt and organized, you can minimize the stress.
Although it isn't always a stroll in the park and it does involve hard work, there is so much fun to be had! In any event, you will never run out of hugs, kisses, and handshakes to participate in.
However, it pays to ponder on this a bit. In the U.S. alone, there are more than ten thousand people who have actually become professional wedding planners. In their wake, there are hundreds to thousands more who dream to become a wedding planner too. What makes you any different from them so as to stand out above the rest? This is something you'll have to figure out on your own! And once you do, you'll have that unique identity which sets you apart – the name and trademark couples and clients will remember you by.
