What does it take to become a wedding planner?

Most wedding planners are in business for themselves and do not work for an agency. What I would suggest is for you to go to college and take business and event planning courses (possibly hotel/restaurant management stuff too.) This will help you start your career when you are ready. In the meantime if you have a... More
