Go for it! I use to play around with the idea. I even worked for a planning company here in the city for a year. It’s hard work and when you really get into it, it HAS to be a fulltime job. You can start off doing it part time. Maybe offering DOC services only, but if you are going into full wedding planner, it will be hard to keep your current job and do planning too. Brides will call you left and right and expect you to be on call.

Maybe you should start off by DOC or maybe week of services at first?

Definitely try it out!! congrats!! You dont have to do it full time but part of the job is having connections, and a photographer is a great start and they can point you in the direction of other vendors who are willing to work with you. Its all word of mouth and help. I’m in CT as well and definitely want to get into wedding planning or even planning one day. if you ever need a partner let me know!

Wow, that’s so great!  I went to school for interior design, and I’ve wanted to get into event planning for a while now (I feel like the two occupations are somewhat related).  Unfortunately, there are no companies hiring around here, and I don’t feel like I know enough to start something up on my own.  You should definitely take advantage of the offer!  Especially if someone is willing to help you out at no charge.  It seems to me like you are passionate enough about it to take it on.  I will offer up my wedding to you if you want to travel to Rhode Island! 😉

@mwitter80: well, it was worth a shot!  At least you know you have a line of people willing to work for you if your business takes off.  I’ll cover Rhode Island!  😉  Best of luck!

That’s me Claudia is talking about! I’m Lauren! lol Well I’m MsDiamondPrincess over on The Knot. lol I think you should seriously go for it. Your feedback, encouragement etc has definitely made my planning easier and I appreciate it so much.

I am open to letting you use my wedding as a springboard for your event planning business. I’m not getting married until April 2012 so it would allow you to slowly ease into the planning. Plus, I’m 95% sure we’re booking G. Fox next Monday and I already booked Claudia so you would get to work with two of your favorite vendors! I am the most indecisive person in the world ( in case you couldn’t tell from my posts on the Knot) so your expertise would be awesome to have!

Whatever you decide I wish you the best and I think you should follow your dreams!

And um…if you don’t take me up on the offer do you think you could still help me with that escort card poster??? I’m also not very crafty. lol

Here’s a great quote for you relating to this…

 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
