  • Wedding Planner Question CERTIFIED TWICE?

I think I agree with the first answer, but I don't fully understand the question. Usually, the college where you graduate or get certified is the one you claim. If you take a separate course and get a separate certification, you'd claim both. But as a separate issue, many people think this stuff is a waste of time. That's because you can easily pick up practical experience in jobs related to event planning. What's most helpful if you want to pursue this career are courses in business, finance, marketing, etc. Just keeping it real, but people who want to be wedding planners often ignore the business aspect of it, and if you want to be successful, it's very much a business. You can help a few friends with planning weddings and get the hands on experience wedding planning certs give you. From what I can tell, this is what trips people up. They get their certification, and then wonder what to do next. I'm not trying to discourage you, but this is a tricky business to break into, since very few people want to be your "guinea pig". If you go about it the right way, and know how to market yourself, it can mean the difference between success and fail.
