I’m sure a lot of women end up in this place after their wedding, but I seriously want to start doing some event & wedding planning. I already work for a small nonprofit and have been in charge of organizing and running our events. What is the best way for me to start branching off on my own? I feel sort of silly asking this question, but I really think I have what it takes to do this. 🙂

When I was looking for a wedding planner, I noticed that a few of them taught seminars, etc. Also, a lot of them have assistants who help them out. I think doing that might be a good place to start and you would probably get some great experience. So I guess I am advising you to get in touch with some established wedding planners in your area! Before I chose my planner, I really wanted to make sure that I was hiring someone with experience because I did not want anyone practicing on my wedding.

my college offered event planning degrees (a BA). Maybe you could look into a program like that?

Okay, thanks. At least things gives me somewhere to begin!
