Financial Incentives: According to recent statistics, the average cost of weddings has seen a steady increase, with many couples spending significant sums on their special day. For wedding planners, this translates to a sizable income. Assuming you secure a modest 10% as your fee, even a wedding with a budget of $25,000 (a conservative current average) means $2,500 in your pocket. With just a few weddings a year, this can represent a substantial income, especially for those starting part-time.
