Weddings are one industry that never seems to go out of style, as long as there is love there will be weddings. With the average wedding costing well more than $25,000, there is a reason it is considered the most special day for many couples. Many at-home wedding businesses require working on-site at the wedding. Read on to learn more about home-based wedding business ideas.

Wedding Planner

Have a knack for organization then consider a career as a home-based wedding planner, a type of professional who organizes the events leading up to and on the wedding day. No formal education is required but a degree in hospitality or tourism management may prove helpful.

Wedding Cakes

Create custom-made wedding cakes from your home by using your talent for baking and decorating skills. Make a niche or specialty for your wedding cake business to separate yourself from the rest. A professional background is not required for a home-based wedding baker and cake decorator.


Love to take pictures? Capture wedding day memories with your skills as a home-based photographer/videographer. Gain real-world wedding experience by working as a photographer’s assistant or by offering to work for free. Requirements include a talent for photography or videography and the proper equipment and knowledge to operate a camera.

Wedding Invitations and Calligraphy

Handwritten invitations are the hallmark of luxury but where does a bride find someone who knows the art of calligraphy. This is where a home-based wedding business as a calligrapher pays off. Calligraphers are specially trained in the near lost art of fine handwriting. They can turn an ordinary invitation into an extraordinary.

Sewing and Design

Turn your love of sewing and weddings into a home-based business. Create a niche for yourself and specialize in wedding dress design, alterations or custom sewn items such as table and chair coverings. Experience is required to be successful as a seamstress or tailor.

Wedding Floral Designer

Design wedding arrangements and reception centerpieces with your home-based wedding florist business. Choose to specialize in fresh or silk flowers. Take classes in floral design and gain experience working in a wedding floral shop.


Add something special to a couple’s wedding day with a favor-making or decoration business and work from home. Decide on what type of products you would like to offer for favors from small gift bags to custom candles for guests to take home.
