Flowers inevitably capture the imagination and often become the topic of conversation in any event. This successful presentation results from the careful planning and skill of the event coordinator.
The functions in event planning might include: weddings, receptions, holiday parties, conferences, trade shows, grand openings, business parties, and other events such as birthdays and anniversaries.
The business of event or wedding planning is for those who like working with people, who enjoy planning small or large gatherings, and who are good at negotiating and networking. The event wedding planner must be personable, a good listener, and a good delegate for their clients. They are the spokesperson in all facets of planning, including ordering flowers, hiring musicians, hiring photographers, finding a caterer, finding locations, choosing colors, etc., for their clients.
Whether you are planning a wedding, party, corporate meeting, or convention, consultants will help customize the day to meet all needs and objectives, so the customer can relax and enjoy the festivities.
A florist often handles many of these functions on a day to day basis. However, if you wish to specialize in this profession, a college degree is available.
