What It Takes to Be a Wedding Planner

Every channel is talking about the Royal Wedding now. Besides Price William and Kate Middleton, the attention also goes to what it takes to plan such an extravagant event. Today’s CNN News video, however, shows us a wedding planner’s work in a “normal” scale and a more realistic way. Being a good wedding planner, one must*:
  • Pay attention to details
  • Understand what the bride (clients) needs and give her (them) what she (they) want
  • (Better yet, anticipate clients’ needs)
  • Multi-task
  • Be aware of the trends
  • (Better yet, be innovative and able to lead the trends)
  • (Build and maintain a good network with clients and business partners)
  • Be passionate about the profession
  • Be willing to go an extra mile for the clients
What other must-have competencies do you want to add? On April 29, when we watch the Royal Wedding, we may also want to appreciate those hospitality professionals who put up such a nice event (show) for us, is that right?

* I add my own comments and thoughts in the blankets; I also believe that all hospitality professionals must possess those competencies.
