Off-Season Training


18 things you can do now to be ready for wedding season

Do you find yourself wishing you had more weddings or events booked for 2018? The wedding off-season is officially here, so it is the perfect time to work on growing your business and marketing yourself for next season’s events. Here in Central Florida, our wedding season is a little different than other places around the country. The busiest time for us here is from October to May. (Can we talk about our gorgeous weather in the Sunshine State right now? No? Maybe we’ll save that for another article.)

One thing is the same no matter where you live: engagement season. The holiday season is a wildly popular time to get engaged. Getting to spend the rest of your life with the one you love? That’s a pretty great gift if you ask me. You might still have your Christmas tree up, but those newly engaged couples are already planning their summer and fall nuptials. If you want to fill up that 2018 gig calendar, then you’ll want to check out my 18 things you can do now to get ready for wedding season. Keep in mind these tips are geared toward freelance wedding harpists, but most ideas can be applied to any aspect of a harpist’s business—teaching, concertizing, session work, etc.
