Thinking of becoming a wedding planner?
Which wedding planner course do I choose?
The biggest question on your mind right now is probably which course provider do I go with? Do I really need a certification to run my own wedding planning business?
With the cost of an average wedding in Australia right now around the $40,000 mark, planning a wedding requires the professional expertise of a wedding planner. However, an under qualified wedding planner will not cut it.
No bride or groom will want to hand over their’ money to any event or wedding planner. The couple will make sure you have some kind of certification to plan the biggest event of their lives.
Having a wedding planning certification is crucial and will put your couple at ease, knowing you have the expertise and sensitivity to plan their day.
Australian Based course - Choose an Australian based course if you are living in Australia. You can be sure you are in the know as to what Australian couples are looking for in a wedding. You also need to be able to pick up the phone and call your tutor for help.
I have seen many students over the years say it’s so hard to contact my tutor because they are in the UK, or in the United States. Doing an online course can be difficult for some people, so knowing you can pick up the phone is often be a lifesaver.
