How I Ended Up in the Bridal Industry

Sara Cummins Photography

I started working in the bridal industry because I had all of these interests and skills, and I wanted to utilize them to serve others.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Event planning has truly been an interest and passion for me since my early teens. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I love decorating and I can easily pay attention to details. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I get excited about preparing food and making new dishes. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I love using different elements to create a unique aesthetic. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I dove in head first. ⠀ ⠀ I volunteered for wedding planners, I started selling wedding dresses, working at a wedding magazine, and planning on my own on the side. ⠀ ⠀⠀ My resume is seriously chalked full of wedding industry credentials. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Which was amazing, until I decided that I wanted to pivot into business and lifestyle writing. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It’s been a process of semi-starting over. Trying to build cred outside of bridal, but honestly, I feel like a lot of the work goes hand in hand, and I can still utilize my unique skills. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My attention to detail helps me write and create graphics and built websites. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My love for decorating helps me so much in my design work. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My passion to serve has multiplied ten-fold because I can serve more people than just brides. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Trying to balance the two right now Is a lot like a busy Saturday at the shop every single day.... ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Even so, I wouldn’t have it any other way. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What are your unique skills?
