How Do I Become a Wedding Planner?

This is one of the most common questions we get. While we are not currently hiring for lead planners, we always want to point you to the best path. To be a wedding planner requires many skills. You must be creative, very organized, flexible, able to prioritize, a problem-solver, a people-person and much more. It is not an easy profession, although it definitely has its rewards and perks! We highly recommend you begin by working as an intern for a planner or complete a training program. This will allow you to see what planners do on a daily basis, as well as at a wedding, to help you decide if this is the career for you. To really get started, do both! We recommend the certification program through the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners. For more information on their program, go here.
