If you haven’t noticed already, the wedding industry has completely exploded over the past several decades. People are always getting married, and there is no shortage of opportunities, ideas, and choices to be made when it comes to pulling off amazing events.
As a wedding planning professional, though there is often a lot more to deal with in terms of the actual planning process than there may have been in times past, we now have the benefit of technology at our side.
There are so many resources out there that can be extremely helpful to you as a wedding planner (I even shared 9 must-have tech tools for matrimony mavens right over here last year!)
Here are another handful of digital resources that I think can make a huge difference in your life and business as a wedding planner.
This one is kind of a given, but I think sometimes people can really underestimate the power and usability of Pinterest! This amazing visual search engine literally gives you any sort of inspiration you could possibly need right at the tips of your fingers.
