    You don't need any particular level of education in order to start your own party planning business. What I'd suggest you do is think about the type of business you would like to start in terms of the services you would offer and who your customers would be. Then do some research on the businesses already serving those customers and prepare a basic business plan to get you started.

    Deonte, what obstacles do you see, that might prevent you from setting up the business successfully?

    if you have you experience hiring party organizer yourself, then you should have an idea how they operate.
    my friend hire a wedding/party organizer last year and they were a mess.
    you have to assign each of your men to do their task responsibly.
    They also must look what lies ahead and paper works.

    During my friends wedding, I have to go to the nearest fire department to ask for the permission to get the
    party going becuase the organizers didn't as permit for fireworks and firedancers.

    Hi,

    Allocate your resources and understand the demand of market for your business goods/services. I don`t think so that for such kind of business you need education. If you have any experience regarding this business than it will be good.

    Becoming a party planner will require you to budget well and, to have or develop terrific organizational abilities. You will need to learn how to do everything from putting together a martini bar to planning a menu for a tropical-themed party. You will also need to develop good working relationships with catering companies, vendors and suppliers. As Fergal mentioned you don't need any level of education, but you need to learn the skills that come along with being a successful party planner.
