This program will walk you through the process step-by-step, to show you how to figure out what you can earn and how to structure your business model and increase revenue.

13. What is a typical day like for a wedding consultant?

A day in the life of a wedding consultant can be an exciting and rewarding one, but it’s also hard work. Your workday will be a combination of phone calls, emails, and meetings with brides and vendors, plus research, and of course planning and designing that special day for clients.

The needs of each bride will dictate the day's events. A large part of your job will involve communicating with vendors and conducting research for clients. You’ll also be overseeing services on the day of the event and will be there to support the bride. Expect to include evening and weekend hours in your business schedule.

14. What exactly is a certified wedding planner responsible for in working with a bride?

In the initial meeting with the bride, a wedding planner will be asking questions and learning more about what the bride would like for her wedding day. Once this information has been gathered, the consultant will then start researching and talking to vendors to see who is available on that date and will start booking vendors for the couple. If the bride needs a consultant to attend the wedding that day, the consultant will handle all necessary arrangements.

It’s the responsibility of the wedding planner to be a project manager and help the bride produce her ideal wedding, to guide her in the right direction, and to always look out for her best interest. Ultimately, the bridal couple will dictate what they would like a wedding planner to help with.

15.  What is the difference between a wedding or bridal consultant, a wedding planner, and a wedding director?

A wedding or bridal consultant works in partnership with the couple and guides them through the process of making wedding decisions. Couples working with a consultant are very much in control of their wedding plans, but can rest assured they have professional guidance and assistance when needed. This allows the couple to enjoy the wedding planning process, making it as fun and stress-free as possible.

A wedding planner is similar to a project manager. A wedding planner takes charge and plans the details of a wedding from start to finish. The couple is still involved, but most of the leg work is left to the planner, who will make their arrangements for them.

A wedding director coordinates the details, vendors, and itinerary on the wedding day. All concerns are placed on the shoulders of the wedding director during the event. The couple doesn't need to get caught up in the small details and can enjoy their guests and the day's celebration.

16.  What if I don't have enough time to complete my program within the time frame provided?

The time allotted to complete your program has been calculated based on the number of hours for each program, so don't worry too much about not completing in time. If, after a concerted effort, you are still unable to complete, your Student Advisor will help you work out a suitable completion date. Please note that a fee will be charged for an extension.
