Wedding Planners – 5 Tips for a Successful Business in 2015

It’s a brand new year and whether you’re just starting a wedding planning business or in need of getting your current one restarted, it’s the perfect time to get on the path to success.

Here are 5 tips to follow now so you’ll thrive throughout the year:

1) Acknowledge that your success is up to you

Realize that you are responsible for your own success. Never be the type of person who blames the economy, location, family or friends for not having the wedding planning business you want. You can rise above your circumstances and environment.

2) Get clear

Know who you are, who you want to become, what you want your wedding planning business to look like and what you are willing to sacrifice to achieve your vision.

Sacrifice might mean giving up some of your free time so you can get out and make more connections with wedding vendors and brides or cutting back on expenses so you can afford a new tablet or laptop to use for your business.

3) Have confidence in yourself and what you can do

When you’re starting or restarting a wedding planning business, it’s certain that doubts will creep in. You’ll wonder if you’re good enough, if maybe you had done or said something differently a bride may have hired you instead or someone else, if you had just advertised more or exhibited in a different bridal show you would have more brides.


Sometimes things go wrong and sometimes you make a wrong decision, but learn from these things and move on. Be confident that you can bounce back from problems and mistakes, because you can.

4) Associate with the right people

You become like the people you associate with. You need to spend your time with supportive, confident, intelligent, positive and hard-working people so you become more like them.

5) Develop good habits

Get up early. Stay focused and organized when you work. Don’t let social media and email zap too much of your time. Take breaks so you stay refreshed.

If you start following these tips, this can be your year, the year your wedding planning business reaches the top.
