I have been stalking Weddingbee since I was asked to be a braidsmaid in my cousin’s wedding on 10.10.10. I must say that I have gotten so many good ideas for my cousins’s wedding! You girls are amazing!
I am starting my second year of law school in Florida right now, but I must say that after working at a law firm this summer and doing some research for my cousin’s wedding, I’m seriously thinking about becoming a wedding planner! I feel like I’ve finally found something that I’m passionate about.
Anyone else reconsidering their career choice since being involved with wedding planning?

Yay! Welcome 🙂
The first post is always the hardest lol.
A wedding planner?! If you’ve got a knack for it, I say go for it! Could you maybe just try it out part-time during your remaining 2 years of law school? The two careers are so different– I definitely wouldn’t give up on your schooling thus far!

Yay for you! I kinda changed my career idea. I’m going to school for accounting and business management with a minor in photography. It sounds crazy! =) I want to work as an accounted for a while till I can open my own competetive cheerleading gym. Since working on my wedding I’ve decided I’m opening my own wedding planner/DIY consulting business with a partnership with my mom’s Tshirt business in January after I get home from our honeymoon! It’s great cause I can work from home and keep my “real” job. I love weddings! I hope you find what you love and if this fun wedding business is it… You go girl!!

Welcome! So glad you posted. I definitely found latent skills through wedding planning and though I’m not planning on a career change, it’s definitely added a new dimension to my life.

I just read my first comment: I hope i didn’t come across negatively! Really, I’m a BIG advocator for doing what you love!!
I went to university & got a business degree specializing in finance… I now decorate cupcakes/cakes & teach yoga a few times a week. I don’t think I could last long working in a bank or selling credit (which were my only options coming out of school), but I don’t regret getting my education first. Education can never be taken away from you & is always a good backup plan!
Whatever you choose to do, I’m sure you’ll rock it 🙂

Welcome!! I think wedding planning has changed what I want to do too! I’m so wanting to take some fashion classes or something and make dresses/flowers and cute stuff lol
I think it’s great that you want to pursue what you are passionate about 🙂 GO girl!

Welcome to the Hive!
I’ve got a few friends who are wedding coordinators, but both of them do it part time to supplement their husbands’ salaries (and both took it on after LOVING planning their own weddings). Have you looked into the demographics attached to career wedding planning in your area? If it’s something you truly enjoy and will be financially sustainable over a longer period of time, go for it! What’s better than finding a job that makes you happy AND pays the bills? 🙂
