Becoming a Wedding Planner

by: Bailey Edinburgh

Hospitality and Business degree

To be a wedding planner the things you need are hospitality skills, and skills in how to run a business and how to manage money. Wedding Planners can earn at an entry level up to $40,000 part time. When they work their way up to being a full time planner you can earn anywhere from $60,000-$90,000 and when you are at the top of your career you could earn anywhere from $100,000-$120,000.


Experience is key

The more experience you have the more business you will get because brides will recommend you to their friends for their weddings. it is best to start early so why not start during high school. if your school offers anything towards things like floral design, hospitality, business, fashion, or cosmetology take it because you never know when you might need it in the field.


Things you do as a wedding planner

Be calm, and always be organized!
