I have been planning weddings for close to 15 years (yikes!) I can’t believe it myself. The time has just flown by! What has kept me so engaged in this business is the brides. Each bride is unique and brings her own experiences to the process of planning her wedding.I became a wedding planner because I wanted to have my own business. I had worked in the non-profit sector planning large fundraising events. I had also worked in the corporate world help to planning seminars and off-site team building meetings.
My love of planning and my desire to have my own business propelled me into wedding coordinating at a time when it was a new field. There were only a few of us doing this when I started. I didn’t have mentors or role models. Brides did not know what a “wedding planner” did. I had to educate the brides. Of course, now it is a booming field.
