Attracting Brides for YOUR Wedding Planning Business!

Let's face it; the hardest part of the Wedding Planner business is finding brides. We all want to have a foolproof way of attracting them and even though there really isn't one, I'd like to share a few thoughts on how I keep my business so successful.

I would like to share a little insight I've acquired on how we lose our energy. There are people out there I like to call energy-thieves. These people are well-meaning and can be anyone from co-workers to family. They come to you in their times of need or with a crisis that needs attention and expect you to pull them through. In the process, you invest yourself into the problem. It takes your time, your thoughts, and your energy and leaves you feeling exhausted and a little blue.

The trick for keeping your energy is recognizing the energy-thieves and protecting your energy from them. The way to recognize them is to evaluate how you feel after you've been around them for a little while. If you feel tired, a little depressed, or lack your usual motivation, then you have just had your energy stolen from you. Another way to recognize them is by how negative they are. You know the type, never having anything good to say about anything or anyone. Just being in the vicinity of these types of people wears you out and leaves you drained.

It takes a lot of self-motivation to be in business for yourself, and you have to keep talking yourself up, you don't have the TIME to let others bring you down. Believe me; once you've given your time/energy to someone, your brides will know it and they will lose their enthusiasm for utilizing your business. They are PAYING you to make their wedding the most memorable day in their lives. They won't want to do business with someone who isn't as enthusiastic as they are. So, take a tip from a VERY successful Wedding Planner, be positive, happy, interested, and excited to be part of every bride's very special day. It works; you'll attract brides like bees to honey.

Over the course of my career as a successful Wedding Planner, I have had many occasions to feel completely void of energy and pressed for time. Fortunately, I relied on my Higher Power to pull me through and teach me how to handle them better the next time. Now I'm able to recognize the negativity I see in others and not let it affect me. By practicing these techniques and relying on my Higher Power to see me through, I have become more successful each year while still finding time to spend with my wonderful family. I have even had the extra time to open a Dcor Division!

Remember, your brides expect you to be just as thrilled and happy about their Wedding Day as they are! If you can take this advice and become more energetic and able to keep that energy, then you will draw brides to you in droves!
