5 Wedding-Related Businesses You Had No Idea You Could Start From Home

Wedding planners aren’t the be-all and end-all behind a successful wedding.

Do you love the euphoria that surrounds weddings? Are you good at handling stress and high tension situations? Do you want to be your own boss? The wedding industry might just be perfect for you!

Contrary to general opinion, wedding planners aren’t the be-all and end-all behind a successful wedding. Here are a bunch of services you can also provide couples getting married – from the comfort of your home!

1. Wedding dress rentals

How many brides have you heard complain about how expensive their wedding dresses were, and how they’d spend less on one if they could go back in time? That’s where you come in!

Provide a service where brides can rent, rather than buy, dresses for the Big Day. It’ll help lower their overall budget significantly – and who doesn’t love a bargain?!

2. Create their wedding website

Great photographers don’t always make great web designers. Create a business out of creating beautiful websites so that even after the event is long gone, the couple can relive their magical day(s)!

3. Become a wedding MC

If you love talking and are good with people – especially large crowds – this could be the perfect gig for you. Don’t worry about being overly funny, in a very MC-esque way (so overrated); just be yourself and entertain!

4. Provide honeymoon services

Most people focus on providing a service for the wedding day itself, but forget about the honeymoon period after. Help the happy couple create a magical honeymoon experience by taking care of all the details – planning the honeymoon destination, hotel accommodation, fun activities and booking travel and event tickets. They’ll love you for it, and you’ll get paid!

5. Gift-packaging services

You can make money from offering gift packaging and delivery services. Help wedding guests choose and present the perfect gifts for a wedding.
