The entertainment segments of newspapers are always dominated by reports about weddings and banquets hosted by celebrities. Actually, the entire process of a wedding ceremony, along with traditional etiquettes, is very tedious and the help of professionals is needed to leave nothing to be desired.
The biggest function of wedding planners is to assist in dealing with various unpredictable special circumstances occurring at wedding feasts, to ensure the smooth progress of wedding receptions. For example, wedding planners need to rise to the occasion in limited time with limited resources in case of any temporary request from new couples and their relatives, or incidents happened to the venue. Besides, wedding planners should participate in the whole preparation process. For instance, advices should be offered to new couples in the selection of places and clothes for shooting wedding photos, as well as holding wedding ceremonies and banquets.
The ideal age for people to join the wedding planning sector is between 20 to 30 years old. Young people are more sensitive to popular trends and can better adapt to variable working time and overtime working. Meanwhile, wedding planners with staid and sober appearance and disposition could gain the trusts of brides and grooms. Activity organization experience also enables them to manage the wedding planning procedures more easily. People usually start as assistants for wedding planners. They accumulate experience and learn the details of the whole wedding design and planning through actual practices. They will officially become wedding planners after half a year or one year of practices. New wedding planners can earn several thousand Hong Kong dollars a time, while famous wedding planners can earn more than HK$100,000 a time.Interested in this industry?
