Wedding Planning 101

How NOT to Suck at Wedding Planning

  1. Kari says:

    I run an Even Center and plan all of the events. I am also a Wedding planner, Officiant and Event Designer (well working on that).

    Is it ethical to have on a facility rental agreement, a note that states that the “onsite attendant’s gratuity is not included in the price? ” Some clients give a card with a gratuity, others don’t.
    Great and helpful articles by the way! Insightful and help me a lot!

  2. Awesome article, great to see what you ahve been up to Debbie. Looks great around here. I’d like to add one more if I may:

    6. Be Ethical! Little is worse than a wedding planner who expects kickbacks from vendors in exchange for referrals. Referrals should be based on a genuine respect for a vendor’s professionalism and ability, not their ability to send you huge checks! Genuine gifts of thanks, now that is another story.

  3. Thanks Debbie for dispelling the “big money” myth! Most small business owners can achieve sustainable income – but not big income. It’s just the truth (and challenge) of small business ownership… and this is a hard reality for wedding planners because it’s a hard and stressful job. However, the rewards of having control of your lifestyle, schedule, and future often far outweigh the big money.

      Thanks for sharing Michelle. I completely agree with you about all the other non-financial rewards. So very true.
