Wedding Planning Career

Your Two Cents: Would You Want to Be a Wedding Planner?

In her role as a super successful wedding planner Jennifer Lopez's character jokingly says, "Those who can't wed, plan." That's obviously not the case, and pursuing a career in wedding planning surely takes a real love for weddings, an eye for design, and a desire to help others. As with any job, wedding planning has its advantages — like the feeling of accomplishment when your vision comes to life, connecting with a couple, and feeling like you've made a difference in their special day, and its disadvantages — like a hectic work schedule with irregular hours, having to compromise your opinions often, and going through slow business periods. Based on your experience with wedding planners and planning your own wedding, do you think it could be a career for you?
