How to Start and Grow a Wedding Planning Business

A step-by-step practical guide on how to become a wedding coordinator and build a successful wedding planning business

"How can I gain a client's trust with their wedding when I don't have a portfolio because I am just starting out?"

"How do I build a website that looks professional?"

"What marketing methods can I use to reach new clients?"

"Am I charging enough?"

These are just a few of the questions that I am asked when aspiring coordinators reach out to me. I realized that on-demand classes are great at outlining the basics, but what was missing was the feedback of a live experience where real-life, right now concerns were addressed.

After providing one-on-one coaching over the years, I've decided to take our Wedding Planner Bootcamp community and pour into bootcampers the same coaching opportunities that I have shared offline. I absolutely love weddings, marriage proposals, and elopements! But what I love most is when I have helped someone else realize their dream of building a successful business in the wedding industry.

So what will you learn?

That's easy, I'll throw it back at you by asking what do you wish to learn? That is what I mean by "real-life, right now concerns" because in addition to the on-demand wedding planning bootcamp courses, bootcampers enrolled in this program will join me each week for a live experience. During this one hour coaching session we will tackle the questions, concerns and real-life scenarios that you have shared with me in the days leading up to our session.

The goal?

Create a legion of kick-butt wedding professionals who have the confidence needed to go out and follow their passion of building a wedding planning business and experience success (by your own definition) while doing so.

This program is strictly for those who are looking to become really intentional about their professional growth. We will goal set and you will be held accountable for the action plan that you create.

So what are your waiting for? The sooner you enroll, the sooner you will gain access to the tools and insight that can help you transform your business.

Originally, I created Coordinator For A Day to provide day of wedding coordinating services in the Chicago area. I am extremely passionate about helping brides enjoy the experience of planning their own wedding without worrying about the numerous day of details. As my business grew, so did my vision. I transformed Coordinator For A Day into a network for professional Day of Wedding Coordinators and that led to the creation of Wedding Planner Bootcamp.

What began as a way to help promote other Day of Coordinators has now become a full blown mission to support small business ownership. If you aspire to start your own professional wedding and event planning business, sometimes it helps to have a mentor you can connect with throughout your journey.
