Learn how to become a wedding planner & start making dreams come true

Love to hum "The Wedding March"? Do you get excited about a bouquet toss? Do your friends ask your advice about everything from etiquette to color schemes? Then it may be time to learn how to become a wedding planner by taking an online wedding planning course.

Forget traditional Wedding Planner schools

With our online wedding planner course, you’ll gain instant access to a wealth of wedding knowledge. Plus, earning your wedding planning chops online means studying and taking exams when it’s convenient for you--not on a school’s schedule. Why spend time locked inside a classroom when where you really want to be is out in the real world, making contacts and starting to employ what you’ve learned?

Can you really learn how to become a Wedding Planner online?

Yes, you can. Our wedding planning course is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of the methods, procedures, and techniques that professional wedding planners use in the real world. You’ll learn how to:

  • Plan and follow a budget
  • Book vendors
  • Create checklists, timetables, scheduling forms, invoices, and more

In addition, our online wedding planning program takes you on virtual field trips through multimedia presentations. And graduates of the Ashworth College online wedding planner course receive a one-year membership to the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC), the largest group of wedding professionals in the world. Through ABC, you’ll have:

  • Access to liability insurance, career support, and seminars
  • A subscription to Wedding Planner magazine
  • Discounted rates from a variety of wedding vendors--a great start to your new business
  • The opportunity to become a Certified Sandals® Resorts Destination Wedding Specialist

“Wedding Planner” is a real thing

And yes, tell your dad that “wedding planner” is a real job. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook, the average wedding planner in 2016 made north of $47,000. Employment is projected to grow at 11%  from 2016 to 2026, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Translation: Love wins.
