    I think you'll need to find your niche and USP - what will make you different from all the other planners out there?
    Are you going to do absolutely everything packages, weddings abroad, civil ceremonies, goth weddings, themed weddings etc. The scope is huge.
    What about "props" candy carts, bay trees, arches, huge martini glasses, doves in cages - do you know where to hire these things ...
    If I wanted a wedding planner I'd need to know that they had knowledge of things that interested me & a strong conceptual vision.
    Offer a free planning package to a local radio as a giveaway prize (make it that they need to visit your FB page to find the answer perhaps) - try and get a slot on a radio programme talking about DIY wedding tips.
