wedding industry overcrowded

Sometimes it seems like everyone and their mother is getting the wedding and event design and planning bug! Do you know what I mean?
I’ve heard other designers and planners complain that our industry is getting way too crowded, and I know some folks worry that soon there won’t be enough business to go around. Personally, though, I think that’s plain nonsense. What about the fashion industry, which has been around a lot longer than the wedding industry? There are more fashion designers than ever, but that industry is still doing fine!
Instead of wasting so much time and energy being concerned about whether or not our industry is too crowded, we should all be thinking hard about unique ways each of us can contribute creatively to our industry so that it continues to grow and prosper. Have a little faith, friends! I sincerely believe that there is more than enough work for all of us.
I consider my life and my place in the wedding and event industry as all just part of my personal journey of discovery and growth. And just like with anything else, we must be willing to put in the necessary time and patience. Whether it’s a “good” year for our industry or a “bad” year, I applaud everyone who joins our ranks, especially those who are talented, hardworking and motivated.
Dear Readers, what do you think? Do you ever feel like newcomers are taking business away from you? Is our industry overcrowded? Please share your thoughts. I’d like to hear your opinion!
