Did you know, over a quarter of those looking to get married in the United States hire a professional wedding planner to organize and run their event? In 2019, over two million marriages were performed. This means roughly five hundred thousand or more of those marriages likely hired a wedding planner to host their event. While a rough estimate, they should highlight how many Americans desire a wedding planner each year.
Four steps to follow to run a profitable wedding planning business:
Step One: Discover Your Unique Value
Research your local market and see what other wedding planners are offering. Not to copy their services but to see how you can improve yours and make your business stand out. The unique value you provide is the information you will use to persuade your target audience to use your wedding planning services. Also, look to your competitors' reviews and note any common mistakes or criticism that you can avoid doing.
Step Two: Determine Your Services and Packages
Once you have determined your unique value, develop different packages that outline your services. Keep in mind that people will come in with different budgets and needs that you can tailor to with these packages. Developing packages makes it easier to communicate with your customers and ensures you meet their expectations. Not only that, but packages also allow you to create pricing that offers a higher return on investment.
Step Three: Find and Choose Trusted Vendors
Every wedding planning business needs a proper network of other businesses to make their customers' day successful. This includes a bakery for the wedding cake, a flower shop for fresh flowers, and a dress shop to ensure the bride and bridesmaids have the appropriate attire for the big day.
Step Four: Develop a Branded Website
Finally, you will want to create a beautiful website that fully advertises your skills and services within the wedding industry. Think of your website as a store full of your best resources and information to benefit your target audience. What information do you think your target audience needs to become a paying customer? That is the information you should add to your website. Include plugins that allow your audience to schedule one-on-one meetings to make it even easier to trust you and want to become paying customers.
Following these simple steps will get you started on the right track to running a profitable and successful wedding planning business. Remember, a successful wedding planner requires great organizational skills, creativity, and focus on getting the work done correctly and profitability.
