What could be more lovely than being part of the team that makes wedding days special? There is certainly money to be made in providing wedding services, as these days, couples need a budget of around £30,000 according to a bridal magazine survey. That means that weddings are big business, adding an incredible £10 billion to the UK economy. If you have the passion to be part of people’s magical day - or you simply want a share of this sizable revenue - what are the options?
Some of the leaders in this sector are not only establishing a strong reputation and steady business growth, but they also share their business model with ambitious entrepreneurs. Looking at what they offer to the happy couple could well inspire you to fulfil your dream of being your own boss. Bridal Reloved has around 900 franchise boutiques in the UK, selling beautiful pre-loved dresses.
If dressing the venue rather than the bride is more of interest, Ambience Venue Styling and Add a Little Sparkle are looking for more entrepreneurs to join them. You could start right at the beginning of the process, with a Nova Wedding Planning franchise. Or capture the day with a Barrett & Coe wedding photography franchise. There are abundant niches in the wedding services sector too, such as White 7 luxury chauffeuring and Dreambooth photo booths, both of which support franchisees.
With so many options, why take the franchise route? For one thing, couples shop around for their big day – it’s vital to select the right suppliers. They tend to go for companies that have earned respect and a strong track record for making weddings wonderful.
Also, your parent company can direct referrals to you and help with vital marketing tools such as websites. Your franchiser can also help you with insurance and compliance issues – business management areas that can make or break a new venture.
