I love planning weddings and events, but this is SERIOUS business folks ... not a hobby, not a past-time, not a part-time job. And if you're interested in hiring a planner, make sure he/she shares the sentiments above and below. Here's an excerpt from Kelly's blog to consider, especially those who tend to doubt the value of having an experienced and dedicated wedding planner/consultant or persons interested in building a career in wedding planning themselves. Also, having planned your own wedding and done a good job does not mean you can/will/should succeed as a wedding planner/consultant. A unique skill-set is required (see below).
