The wedding boom means that it’s going to be a very busy few years for wedding professionals. The Wedding Report estimates that there will be 2.5 million weddings in 2022, which is the most the U.S. has seen since 1984. That’s a whole lot more weddings than usual and there is still the same amount of wedding pros available which creates a capacity issue. There is more demand than most wedding pros can handle, but what if you could take on more? And what if you could do it without being the one to do all the work?

The wedding boom presents an incredible growth opportunity for wedding professionals. In this podcast episode, you’ll learn how you can grow your business, increase your capacity, make more money, take more time off, and thrive during the wedding boom by building a team (and I promise it doesn’t have to be as hard as it may sound.)
