    I joined this course first because there isn’t any other course like it and I took this course to get a grasp on what was expected from an Assistant Wedding Planner. As a new business owner, I am trying to learn all I can from other peoples experiences. This course was spot on. It laid out in great detail what kind of person could do this job, their responsibilities, and most importantly what they shouldn’t do. Her timelines are such an important visual in this course. Her responses were quick if you had a question and I felt like my success was her success. Take the class, you won’t regret one minute of it.

    I have been following the Engaged Wedding Planners courses for the last several months. Deciding to finally take the leap to begin my own wedding planning business, my first client’s venue coordinator asked if I would like to start assisting her with weddings to get a full understanding of the industry and gain experience. Obviously I said yes & then I took this course to get prepared! Not only was this information useful – I can tell I will be using the information often during weddings to be the best assistant possible. The course is work at your own pace, which was so beneficial and easy to work into my schedule!! There was a workbook you can print at home and now I will have it to reference whenever needed. I am empowered and ready to apply these great tools in my new business opportunity!! I truly cannot wait to take other courses and further my own education in something that I truly have a passion for!! Thank you Valerie for this wonderful academy and helping us grow and succeed. It’s so great to have a community cheering us on!
