  • I'm not an event planner but I do have my own business. Draw up a business plan. Make sure you include the types of services you will provide and to what areas things like that. You could call a few event planners in your area and see if they will give you any tips. Also, get a list of local vendors and go and meet with them. Start attending wedding events. Once you do that, then market yourself. Local ads, internet etc. You will need strict contracts for your customers. Event planning is all about the details. Good Luck!

  • I'm not an event planner but I believe the best thing to do would be to alert your friends and start doing it for people you know for free and then allow those people to tell their friends and so on.
