Our students have interned with David Tutera, Preston Bailey, Kevin Lee, Lisa Vanderpump, and many other industry professionals to build their portfolio of work and launch a career in wedding and event planning.

How long does it take to finish the program?

The program is designed to take about 8-12 weeks or 340 hours of study to complete, but you have up to 6 months to complete it at your own pace.

Event organization vs. Event design

The planner meets with the client and plans the entire event: invitations, deadlines, contracting suppliers, tests, tastings, etc. Gather client information: colors, expectations, wedding size, budget, theme ideas, etc.

The planner then contacts the designer and communicates the guidelines. For example, "My client's colors are pink and white, she loves gold, the venue is the ballroom at the Marriott, her budget for design services is $4,000, she and her husband They met at the movies, so they want to include movie elements in the design, they just want white and pink roses as flowers, etc."

At that time, the designer and his team come up with the design based on the size of the room and the needs of the client. They create plans and sketches (or computer layouts) of the room. They choose the types of tables, crockery, cutlery, table linen, lighting, colors, flowers, etc. to meet customer needs. They then present their designs to the client and the organizer for feedback. Designers are the creative ones who take the logistics of the organizer and bring it to life.

Many organizers offer both planning and design services, but have a team of designers because it's not the job of one person.

How is the course carried out?

The course is a combination of interactive online learning with lectures, videos, tests, assignments, projects, as well as class discussions and live webinars.

There is also an exam. The community offers live video conference discussions on a variety of topics with a variety of industry guest speakers and wedding planning mentors who are active in the industry. If you miss a live discussion, it's recorded and uploaded to your video library so you can watch it anytime. The course also provides you with hundreds of templates that you can download and reuse with your own branding/logo. Including contracts, pricing models, business plan, etc.

The best program for you is the one that fits your goals, not the cheapest. Make sure you identify why you want to become certified and that the program you choose will help you achieve it. We would love to welcome you to our program and to our community.
