Quite a few around but do you have the budget for them? Sometimes it's easier to do it yourself. I'm a photographer and see couples often hire a planner who does things they could have done themselves then end up with no budget left for photography!

Haha, know the feeling, however photography is now something that is available for free as everybody has an iPhone.

I have looked at your website & it's pretty good!

thanks, it's in need up updating and yes lots of iphones about, it's even better when the wedding party feels the need to rip out their phone to check emails during the service.

I did have a couple with 100+ at a lovely chateau say they would "just do selfies" as they where "out of money'

Re: Wedding Planners/Event Management/VIP Services Switzerland

haha that's ridiculous. I'd argue that a good photographer is potentially the only thing worth spending money on at a wedding.

The reason I'm asking this is because I did a similar job in Toronto before I moved to Switzerland. I was a publicist for a record company and handled event management and logistics for VIP musical talent.

I also did about 5 or 6 weddings.

My record company job basically doesn't exist in Switzerland so I'm having to be much more creative in finding suitable employment and I'm hoping there is a larger company that might need event managers or something to that effect.

Thoughts?

I'm new here and find the wedding market more quiet compared to France (still going to commute for them)

There must be planning traits you can carry over in another job. Or give a go at putting yourself out there freelance

Re: Wedding Planners/Event Management/VIP Services Switzerland

If some one is interested in Wedding planners but cant aford it: I created an excel file for my wedding and it was a life saver. Very simple but good.
I then passed it to my friend who was considering a planner. They've now decided they dont need one. They just needed everything in black and white infront of them i guess.
Ok, i had to teach them the basics of excel but its worth it.

Super simple file is all you need and you can put everything on different tabs. Simple but clear
