for Wedding Lovers
When people who love weddings
decide they would like to do something in the field, the first thing that
comes to mind is to become a bridal consultant.
But there are many other wedding businesses for someone with an entreprenurial
spirit that fit outside of this. And with the additional of internet sales,
many of these kinds of businesses that might not neccessarily be supported
with enough sales locally can find enough sustainable sales online.
Consider designing your own wedding garters. Many brides can only find
traditional white lace garters, but you can custom make garters in a wide
variety of colors of lace and satin (yes, there even is a market for black
garters). You can also consider adorning your garters with gold or silver
charms such as a cowboy hat, quill pen, or even a computer. Offer a catalog
for bridal salons in your area that includes the mark-up price for the
salon - the bride places the order with the bridal salon, and the salon
places the order with you. Other possible sales areas include through
an online store or on an auction site such as eBay.
Wedding calligraphy looks so elegant, but few people know how to do it
in this day and age. If you are good at it (or have the patience to learn)
this is a great business idea, although it tends to be seasonal to the
spring. Click here for more information.
This is becoming more and more popular as many brides don't want to spend
thousands on a dress they will wear only once. Click

Whether it is balloons or flowers, wedding decorators can make good money
with some before-hand organizational work, and two or three hours of hard
work the day of the wedding.
Whether you make decorative chocolates or miniature floral arrangements,
doing wedding favors is a great business to get into - most brides just
do not have the time to create the number of wedding favors they need
for each guest.
