What exactly are you getting into when you entertain the idea of wedding planning jobs? Well, when you enter a wedding planning career, you will be a bridal consultant, events planner, and wedding arranger all rolled into one. You will live the job and love it!
1. As a bridal consultant
Brides-to-be, grooms-to-be, and in-laws-to-be will forever be consulting you on everything that’s minor and major about weddings. It can range from the bridal dress to the hair and make-up, from the flowers to the food and drinks. In short, the bride’s and groom’s family will always seek your word on what’s best to do from the ceremony to the reception and everything else in between.
2. As an events planner
We choose to say ‘events’ because a nuptial is not just a single event alone which is over with once everything’s been said and done. Rather, it is something more ceremonial, romantic, and picturesque.
A wedding is a series of successive events which lead to that one special moment when two people say their “I do’s”. If you plan it in such a way that these events blend together and flow smoothly one after another, then you are on your way to creating a moment of perfection – or at least, something closest to that.
3. As a wedding arranger
Your job as a wedding arranger is to organize all the different, contributing elements of a wedding into one cohesive whole. The choice of colors, invitations, clothing, flowers, decoration and music will all build around a theme. You of all people will see to it that the entire theme comes out with the maximum output of looking grand, elegant, and lovely with the most minimal input of time and money.
Thus, wedding planning jobs take more than someone who’s creative, artistic, and sophisticated. It also requires a career person who’s tireless, patient, and hardworking! That’s because you’ll have to deal with a load of paperwork, phone calls, and follow-ups just to check that the volume of work gets done. It all depends on whether you’re partially coordinating a portion of the wedding or you’ve been hired to arrange and manage the whole occasion.
When you are into wedding planning jobs, much of your life will revolve around the wedding agenda. You will not lack for social life, not when you are constantly caught up in a whirlwind of preparations which involve people, venues, clothes, flowers, and love. Neither will you be deprived of a personal life, because you will enjoy flexible work hours and professional fees on your own terms.
