Oh my gosh. Weddings are everywhere. I feel like I’m in fifth grade again and I’m constantly seeing “signs” that I’m meant to be with so-and-so forever and always (except in this case, it’s more of a sign that I’m going to be a BOSS wedding planner, right? :)).
Upon entering my gym the other day, my thoughts were (for once) completely outside of wedding-scope. I was probably thinking how I ate Chipotle for the third time that week in order to use that ridiculous BOGO coupon, or about how I reallyyyy didn’t feel like working out, or promising myself that I’d be good even with 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill… But my strange stream-of-consciousness aside, I noticed WEDDING DRESSES in JCREW‘s windows. After immediately discussing this revelation with my go-to married friend, I was informed that JCrew’s wedding line is not new. I was a little sad I didn’t catch the trend while it was hot, but I was obviously beyond-enthused at discovering these dresses. They’re priced reasonably from $250 – $3,000 and some are really beautiful (in that JCrew sort of way).
Speaking of Disney Bridal, I’ve always been predisposed to Jasmine. HOT DRESS, GIRL. Even though the real one looks different…
Okay, jokes aside. As you can see, the wedding industry is exploding and bridal wear is everywhere (no rhyme intended). It’s a great time to be in the wedding business! There are currently about 21 million people in the United States around average marriage age (which is 26 for woman, 28 for men). That’s a lot of weddings, and a lot of opportunities to learn the trade. Even if it’s just helping a friend plan her centerpieces, or organizing a bachelorette party. Learning takes place in more places than you know!
