Wedding Planner

Weddings in the UK are big business – the industry itself is worth over £4billion annually, the average wedding costs over £20,000 and brides take approximately 250 hours to plan their dream day. However, a combination of the need to get the best for their money, the desire to put together a spectacular day and the ‘money rich, time poor’ society that we live in means that more and more couples are turning to wedding planners to help them put together their wedding for them.

The wedding planner can be involved at various levels in a wedding day – from planning and preparing every single aspect of the event to simply finding one supplier or being there on the day to manage everything. The most success wedding planners have a huge knowledge of weddings and trends but also of business management.

This course is designed for those wishing to pursue a career as a wedding planner or a wedding planner’s assistant, either on a sole trader basis or as part of a larger wedding planning organisation.

This is a 6 unit course which encompasses a variety of wedding planning subject areas. For example; the function of a wedding planner, wedding ceremony venue selection, preparation of overseas weddings, themed weddings, planning of goods and services and setting up a home-based wedding planning business.

This course is written to give those interested in entering the wedding planning industry (or indeed those already in it) a full and detailed look at the numerous tasks and roles a wedding planner can be asked to perform whilst also learning how to start a wedding planning business.
