    I say, if you really want to and feel like it would be something you would enjoy, go for it!

    I believe it takes a special person to be a wedding planner and if they are good at what they do, they are a Godsend! I love my planner and don’t know what I would do without her. They can be very expensive but you just to do your homework and we got lucky and found a great one for a reasonable, flat fee.

    I think if you really want to do this, you should go for it! It may take a little bit to get your business going, but if you do some strategic marketing and after a couple brides spread the word, it’ll pick up. Hey, you can spread the word here 🙂 You have to do what makes you happy!

    I say go for it.  Make a portfolio (pictures, recommendations, etc) of the weddings you’re helping with now.  It’ll help to have that on the side.

    I know what you mean about planning parties and such.  That’s why I thought about becoming a caterer.  I love cooking for a large group of people.  I planned, cooked, shopped, etc for my mom’s 40th birthday in the matter of a day.  I was exhausted, but I loved every minute of it.  I did it again for my grandmother’s 75th birthday.  It turned out wonderful.  I can’t wait for another occasion to come up.  But for now, my wedding planning is going to be a blast. 😀

    Good luck!
