Five ways wedding planning has enhanced your CV

Five ways wedding planning has enhanced your CV


Written by Katie Byrne


You're planning your big day - and picking up some impressive skills along the way!

#1 Organisation

In terms of staying on top of dates, contact details and payment info, you've never been more efficient. Juggling supplier meetings with dress fittings and bridesmaid catch-ups makes for a lot of diary management - but you're on it.

#2 Delegating

No bride is an island - and a key part of your planning has been working as part of a team with your bridal party. Learning to pass on tasks to others is a key skill, whether you're in the office or at a planning meeting with your maids.

#3 Money management

Juggling your finances and making sure you don't inch into the red is a vital part of planning any event. Being able to account for every penny and where it's gone is a real talent - and there's no greater practice than negotiating with your supplier, allocating mini budgets and managing your W-Day fund. 

#4  People skills

From working with your bridal party to navigating the table plan and making small-talk with your partner's distant relatives - planning your wedding day is a crash-course in communication and socialisation. 

#5 Staying calm under pressure

Ah, the ol' CV classic. Obviously planning your perfect wedding - making you and your partner's dreams become a reality - takes a hell of a lot of work. But sit back and relax... You've aced it!
