Wedding and Party Consultants
To be a wedding consultant, you have to know about more than
wedding traditions and etiquette. Above all, wedding consulting is
a business, so take courses in accounting and business management.
A bride will be relying on you to stay well within her budget, so
you'll need to be able to balance a checkbook and work with
figures. A sense of style is also very important in advising a
bride on colors, flowers, and decorations-take courses in art and
design. A home economics course may offer lessons in floral
arrangement, menu planning, fashion, tailoring, and other subjects
of use to a wedding planner.
