In addition to the money spent by the bride and groom, money spent by wedding guests can match – or sometimes double – the overall spend at a wedding event. In the UK, expenditure on weddings has increased significantly over the past few decades, and as a result the UK weddings industry has grown to become its own legitimate industry sector.
Weddings businesses can be a dream come true – you get paid to contribute to one of the most special, happy and memorable days of your customers’ lives. Business hours are not the most sociable however; weekends are your busiest time, and your clients will often need to meet you outside of the standard working week. In addition, the emotional strain of planning such an important event effects your entire client base in different ways; most of the clients you meet will be feeling an immense amount of personal pressure. To counteract this, you need to be a very good communicator with the highest level of interpersonal skills.
Wedding franchises give your business the stable framework it requires, while at the same time allowing you to get creative and use your talents to the benefit of people’s lives. You need to investigate each wedding franchise opportunity carefully; what can the franchise offer you in terms of advertising discounts with big wedding publications, or supply cost savings, or client lists? Are you going to be able to trade from day one, or will it take longer to find your feet? How much support will be provided, and by whom, within the franchise organisation? Enquire to the wedding franchises above to learn more.
