Wedding entrepreneur’s qualities include business know-how, a strong work ethic, enjoy working with people, have a great product or service to offer, inspire creativity and show great passion for their work. Read on for a look at a few different types of wedding entrepreneurs.

Wedding Consultant

You planned your own wedding, then you planned your friend’s wedding and then another one and then one day it finally dawned on you, “I want to do this for a living.” A wedding consultant helps couples organize for their wedding and is very detailed oriented. Each wedding is unique and duties of a bridal consultant are varied and may include selecting reception locations, choosing vendors, managing the ceremony or reception activities and the set-up and breakdown of equipment. Combine your love of planning weddings and business savvy into a wedding consultant business. Many bridal consultants work out of their home offices and the job entails on-location travel.

Photographer and Videographers

Capturing couples at the height of their happiest moments on their wedding day is like taking a star from the heavens and placing it in your pocket to save for your true love. Wedding photographers and videographers take the ‘official’ pictures of a couple’s special day. This vocation requires special photography and digital training, skills and abilities to succeed as
well as proper equipment, overall business understanding and creative talent. It is important to create a portfolio to share with prospective clients. Photographers and videographers travel to weddings and bridal portrait locations and offer a variety of services from candid spontaneous shots to formal bridal portraiture. Many work from home or in regular brick-and-mortar offices.

Niche Markets

Got an idea for an underrepresented or untapped area of the wedding industry, consider starting a niche business. A bridal niche business is highly specialized in one area and offers very specific products or services that are unique and significant to weddings. Types of niche wedding services include specialty cake bakers, exotic car rentals, custom bridal gown
designers, vow writers, virtual web assistants for brides, hot air balloon rentals, vegan caterers, wedding website designers or exclusive high-end only wedding planners. Kinds of products offered by a niche wedding business include custom favor creations, original jewelry designs, bride shape wear, elite florists, sewing and bridal designers or creating original wedding website templates. The sky is the limit for the wedding entrepreneur seeking to create a niche market for a service or product.
