Studying for wedding planner certification ① Purpose of wedding planner
I think a wedding planner is a job that you can do with or without qualifications.
In fact, I've been here without any qualifications.
But after all, in understanding the job of "wedding planner"
What to watch out for and what to avoid. .. etc
There is a lot to learn.
So, I will interpret the teaching materials I am learning in English into Japanese and write what I have learned on my blog.
Purpose of the wedding planner
Many people dream of choosing a job as a wedding planner. Is it a longing job? Of course, a wedding is a fun and happy life event.
For common concerts and other events, there is an event planner who sells the event well. Payment negotiations and ticket sales are often required at these events.
Since a wedding is a personal event, you can focus on the details of the event rather than selling it to others like an event planner. So wedding planners and event planners require different skills.
In the United States, there are an average of four weddings per minute.
Life of a wedding planner
A wedding planner is more than an event coordinator. Wedding planners are savvy negotiators, gimmicks, leaning communicators, multitaskers and problem solvers.
A wedding planner is a personal assistant for happy couples. Customers want to contact you as a wedding planner to find out what ideas they can take and turn them into reality.
Manage your budget and make sure everything works for the day.
Of course, every wedding is different and every couple is different. As a result, there is no typical task a wedding planner does every day. The wedding begins when the couple approaches you to help turn their vision for the wedding into reality.
It could be a space-themed wedding with 75 guests in the garden. Or maybe it's a wedding where you rent a ballroom in a luxury hotel and have a dance party.
As a wedding planner, you need to be prepared for everything the couple throws at you.
Wedding planners can work directly with couples. You buy flowers for the couple or negotiate with the venue to choose a space for the event. This is to plan the entire event on behalf of the couple and check them for up-to-date information.
Even after choosing a venue, you will need to do a lot of research to understand the shortcomings of the venue. For example, if you are looking at a venue in the city center, you will need to figure out where your guests will park their cars.
And as a vendor-based wedding planner, you need to use a trusted vendor or supplier. In your early days, it's often spent finding the best vendors and building relationships with them. The better your relationship with the vendor, the easier your job will be. If you throw enough work in their way, they will be able to go one step further for you.
Wedding planners are very creative and suitable for those who are familiar with administrative tasks.
Sometimes you will fight for a couple.
That is the wedding planner.
