Following your passion is scary stuff. I mean, that type of paralyzing fear of knowing-what-lives-under-your-bed kinda stuff. And for good reason, in my opinion. The falsehoods that surround following said passion aren’t often talked about. During your passion project you might hear things like “follow your dreams, they know the way” and “if you can dream it, you can do it.” And, well, that’s simply not true. I don’t want to be a naysayer and crush your dreams. In fact, with all my heart, I want you to be a successful wedding planner.

I just don’t want you to waste a bunch of time and money on something you actually just wanted to do as a hobby and not as a career. So, should you pursue a career as a wedding planner? Take our wedding planner quiz to find out!
Why I Created This Quiz
Did you know that most wedding planners quit in the first five years of business? It’s true! Event planning is hard work and can be both physically and emotionally draining. Once confronted with this reality, a lot of planners quit. I created this quiz to help you decide whether this job is really for you.
Here is my own personal experience. I took a slight detour in my wedding planning career not too long ago. In fact, I was seriously considering packing it all up and refocusing my time on creating a sewing business. I was making baby quilts and having a really good time…well, at least for the first two quilts. After that, it began to feel like a lot of work. I soon realized that sewing was just a hobby for me. In reality, I only liked doing it on my own time, and I’d rather gift the quilts than receive money for them. I’m really glad I learned this before I invested my money and time in pursuing a sewing business. Keeping it as hobby gave me a happy place to relieve some stress. Is wedding planning something similar for you? Or is it something much more?
