What are the steps to take to become a real wedding planner?
03-06-2011 02:12 PM #2
hm.. as a career? My advice is to intern with different wedding planner companies, if they do take interns. Its a great way to learn and pick up skills, gain networks, and gain exposure.

there are some courses you can take too. not sure if all wedding planners are required to have an official cert, or if it just a "good to have"

I would think it helps to have a cert. In our country, society is very cert-conscious. I'm sure they have some courses. There is a Certified Wedding Planners orgn that you can check out. But they are not very cheap though. It's an investment to take up courses like these so i suggest if you're just trying out, to intern first before committing to a course and this career track.

I guess you have to go through an internship and get your hands on a lot of different events so that you'll have a lot of experience, and will make the clients trust you with their events.

Yeah, the planner would also be in charge of contacting suppliers.

the wedding planner will also present some themes that can be used for the wedding.

maybe you can enroll to a course for that kind of job and maybe go to seminars and stuff to gain some experience.

i think a lot of them study event planning first and then serve as apprentice before they can work on their own

Is it really necessary to study event planning before you can become a planner? Wouldn't a bride trust someone with more experience than just a cert? What about the wedding planners that just started out? Would you trust them if they had good ideas and a detailed plan on how to execute the idea?

maybe you should enroll in classes that has something to do with wedding planning
