by Mashum Mollah Business Planning & Opportunities 25 December 2018
There are many different business opportunities in the realm of weddings. Getting married is a big deal in pretty much every culture, so the market is extremely diverse and widespread. From choosing the perfect engagement ring, and choosing the perfect wedding hashtag to choosing the best words to say during the vows, couples need help creating that perfect day.
Entrepreneurs looking to unleash their more creative professional side can find hope in the variety created by two people’s love for each other. Check out a brief overview of some of the different career opportunities provided by the culture of marriage, and consider where your skills and abilities might best fit.
You won’t need to enroll in a university to get yourself in the door as a wedding planner, but you will need to educate yourself on a few things. You can get a diploma after passing a few specific educational courses to better prepare yourself for the job.
Understand that the position of a wedding planner is much more elaborate than choosing flower arrangements and fiddling with wardrobe malfunctions. Being a wedding planner means that you will need the ability to handle budgeting, vendor acquisition and negotiations, marketing strategies, and more.
Becoming a wedding singer doesn’t take any formal education either, but you will need some natural talent. If you want to sing for large (or small) groups of people on a couple’s most perfect day, you want to make sure you’re not a terrible disappointment.
Wedding singers can market their services online through various digital platforms. Networking and social skills are arguably the two most important qualities of a successful wedding singer.
Culinary schooling is one of the first steps you may want to take on your way to becoming a successful wedding caterer. The more prestigious culinary school you attend, the more opportunities will come your way.
You’ll need to become efficient in event planning, marketing yourself, financial management, and social interactions to thrive in the role of wedding caterer. Most importantly, your food has to taste delicious.
To succeed as a wedding photographer, you’ll need the proper tools. The most important tool in a photographer’s box is their camera. Invest in an excellent camera, capable of producing high-quality images in many different settings.
Build yourself a digital presence by designing a business website, and put your photography out into the realm of social media. You have to market yourself.
No education is needed to become a wedding officiant. The process is mainly just a bunch of paperwork and boom… you’re ready to marry folks. Wedding officiants do get paid, but you probably won’t make your first million in this position.
