    You said it right. Observation is the key to success in this field. I have seen wedding planners in Chennai often do the cliche. They don’t customize or make the events unique. Wedding planners should understand the tastes of their clients and plan a unique event based on that.

    I really like event design and event styling, but most of the universities and colleges do not offer this course.
    May I know event design is categorized into which courses? Is interior design, graphic design or event management?

    • Qin, I don’t know that many colleges offer courses specifically for event design. You can check into the Event Leadership Institute and North American Wedding Academy. I think they both offer courses in event design.

    This was such an inspiring moment for me, along with confirmation. Up until now I have felt out of place not knowing where I was going in my professional career. I have served in Customer service for over 20 years. I wondered what should I do next.
    And lately I’ve been in a decorating season. And I started out just as your advice says. Start out decorating your own tables at home. Take photos. Once I read this I realize this is my calling. I felt such joy decorating my table for thanksgiving. And it was fun! My only experience as far as I know is that I am a well organizer. Other than that no prior experience. I really desire to pursue my calling. Thanks Debbie

I need a career I would love not just jobs that I don’t like. One question I have – is it better or necessary to go to school for this type of thing or just go to a company and learn on the job?
