If you’re new to wedding planning, finding a group of your peers is so important. Joining a wedding planner Facebook group can be a great way to get answers and new ideas; however, it’s important to note that not all such groups are created equally. In fact, not all Facebook groups have the same purpose. As your business grows, so do your needs. Depending on where you are in your wedding planning career, you will find the most value in a group of like-minded peers. Certain wedding planning groups can make you feel like a fish out of water.
Wedding Planner Facebook Group
If you’re new to the wedding planning world, you might be afraid to ask questions about where you are in business. If you’ve just started a wedding planning business, or even if you haven’t started but you’re thinking about pursuing a career as a wedding planner, the Becoming a Wedding Planner group is just for you.
- Be an adult. Meaning, treat others how you’d like to be treated. A little self-promotion is okay, just don’t overdo it. This is not high school, so don’t gossip or screenshot images.
- Engage. That’s the whole reason you joined this group—or at least I hope so. You’re new to the wedding world, so I know you have a million questions. That’s what we are here for, so ask questions and get involved. Help each other out.
- Two-year limit. This group is specifically for new wedding planners. So please leave the group after you’ve hit the two-year mark in biz. I know, this sounds crazy. But we want active members who feel comfortable among one another. There are so many other wedding planning groups for the more experienced planner.
The Becoming a Wedding Planner is a social learning group. This means we offer free educational opportunities to help you grow your business. Once you have been accepted into our group, check out the side bar where it says “units” and choose a subject you’re interested in learning more about. Learn how to become a wedding planner or learn how to be a better business owner. There are tons of resources available!
One of the best things about being part of a group like this is knowing you have friends you can lean on who know exactly what you’re going through. This is a safe and private space to be new and to meet others who can relate to what you are going through. These are the people who are in the trenches with you. In larger wedding professional groups, you will find that community aspect a little lacking. We support each other through all sorts of “client scenarios” and “firsts.”
No question is too silly or stupid here. You will never have to worry about asking newbie questions in this group, unlike in some other groups. All questions are welcome.
Get Free Resources
This group has tons and tons of freebie resources. In fact, anytime there’s a beta test for a new course or new products to try out, our group will get first dibs to try them out.
To get the most out of the group, though, you have to be actively engaged. There’s no point in joining our group if you just want to sit on the sidelines. Your time is limited in the group, so make the very best of it and participate. Your participation is not only vital for yourself but also for your team members in the group.
