weddingIf you have read the “About” section of my blog, you will find that I hope to one day become a wedding planner. On my blog titled, “Another Shot at Twitter,” you will also find that I wrote about an event planning group, “BelleWedding.”

I began interested in wedding planning a couple years ago when I started watching “Whose Wedding is it Anyway?” on TV. I think it is so cool how creative these planners are and how they make everything flow together. I realize that it is a lot a work, but I want to be a part of a bride’s “big day.” Some of the shows prove that brides can be rude and snappy, but I know I can handle it. I work well under pressure, and I am extremely organized.

I recently subscribed to a wedding magazine in Charleston, South Carolina. It not only advertises for event companies, bridal shops, and floral shops, but it also gives tips to wedding planners. The most interesting thing I read about was in an article on what to do when a problem arises. One wedding planner keeps an “emergecy kit” with her at all times. The kit has things such as safety pins, glue, and extra bobbypins in case any hairs fly loose. This magazine also shows what flowers bloom in what season and also gives tips on how to save money on decorations.

I feel that I would be qualified for this field because I work well in groups and I love romantic settings. I like to please others, which works well for this setting because it is what it’s all about!
