Do you think it is rude to approach sole trader wedding planners asking to do unpaid work experience with them? It's so very hard to get practical experience but I don't want to offend anyone.

Not at all. It's all about HOW you ask them. Learn about them and how they do business. Some wedding planners have specific instructions on how they handle intern requests. Always adhere to them and be sure to remain professional at all times. Don't stalk them...that's a big turnoff. Try getting to know them by attending networking events in your area first. Remember the "know, like and trust" rule. No one will work with you or recommend you to others unless they know, like and trust you...right?

Ask me anything about me or the wedding biz!
