This books provides lots of valuable information for someone who is starting their wedding consulting business. It provides information on all aspects of the business. From establishing a name for the business,license,permits & insurance needed to run effectively. Also what business equipments are needed, from office supplies, computer and the use of different types of softwares to help you track your expenses. What I found very valuable was the marketing information. All the marketing aspects of the business Elieen goes into great details. From creating your own press releases to understanding all the ins and outs of bridal shows, also how to submit your manuscript and promote your cause. Marketing is the belly of your business and this book can get you started. I followed the advice on press release and my company information is due to be released on Sept.03. This book is worth every penny!! I highly recommend this book. Thumbs up!! I also recommend fabjob's wedding planner study guide.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to get inside information on starting a business as a wedding planner. The authors really provide some relevant and important information for the business side. I really love the market research survey they provide in the book which can be easily adapted for your own market. For the bargain price of $10.47 it is well worth every penny!!!

I don't want to ramble on how good this book is, but if you are looking to start up your own wedding consultant business then this is the book for you. It's awesome!! It has answered so many questions and doubts that I had. When I finished reading it (Which I did in three days) I just wanted to go out and start planning my future as a wedding consultant as soon as possible. I finally found something I can appreciate and enjoy.

This is a must have for any one interested in a career as a wedding consultant. I have been coordinating weddings for a few years before deciding to make it a career. Although I have been in the industry for a while, this book is packed with alot of know how. This book was very helpful. I find myself "checking in" the book every now and again.

Format: Paperback
The book was a really good insight to what one should know when starting up his/her own wedding business. The book went step by step on from what attorney you need to where you should market your clientele. Some of the chapters I knew just from taking entrepreneur courses in college and a lot of materials I didn't know ex: liability section,etc. I would have like to see a few cities with maybe 2-4 wedding consultants and their phone number to talk with them and get their insight. Reading the book and learning is a wonderful experience, but also hands on training is another wonderful experience.

Format: Paperback
The title says that it is a "Step-By-Step Guide" and this is truly accurate. It gives, in detail, everything I needed to know about starting up a wedding consulting business. My daughter, daughter-in-law and I, have helped friends and family with their weddings for several years and thought we knew it all. Wrong! There are so many aspects of helping someone with all their wedding plans and we have done a lot. But when it comes to doing this for a living, it's another story. This book is very detailed without being overwhelming. We now know exactly what to do and how to achieve success with this business. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about starting a wedding consulting business.
