Want to become a wedding planner?

The UKAWP are well known for our in depth and honest training courses for those wishing to become wedding planners. With so many training schools out there it can be hard to know which one is right for you. Today I would like to talk to you a little about our newer course launched in July 2009. Following feedback from clients attending our Business Practicalities course we realised students wanted to learn how to actually plan a wedding, thus Step by Step was born.  The 3 directors of the UKAWP teach the courses personallyand it involves many practical exercises. The courses are held in spring and autumn as naturally, summer months are rather busy for full time wedding planners.

16th & 17th Oct 2010(Crowne Plaza, St James, London)
13th & 14th Nov 2010 (Staverton Park, Northamptonshire)

What topics are covered on this weekend course?

This course is aimed at those who have already launched their business or have attended business practicalites already. This course literally teaches you how to plan a wedding from the moment you have been hired. We go through how to create a client budget and work out what % of the budget should go on certain areas. We advise how to create payment plans for clients and what to do if you have a client bank account. We show you examples of the different ceremonies in the UK and how etiquette plays a part in todays weddings, albeit in a modern way. Then its time to discuss suppliers from how to find them to what questions to ask . The final part of the weekend takes you through the day from the ceremony up until the evening entertaiment.
