The worst part about being new to the wedding industry is all of the unknown. The unknown scares the bejesus out of me. What about you?
When you’re new to an industry you almost have to start from scratch. You might try to do a quick internet search whenever you’re confronted with a new situation—secretly, you’re hoping osmosis will take over. But it doesn’t, and so you start to feel frustrated by your new dream career.
Enthusiastic newbies jump in without fully understanding the scope of work involved. Or even what it takes to get started—truly started. You’re right to be cautious of the unknown because you don’t know what you don’t know.
And because of all the unknown, you’re afraid of failing before you’ve even started. Afraid of getting it wrong before you’ve even tried. Afraid of dropping the ball before you even have someone to disappoint.
Do you look online for local wedding-related job postings and try to get the courage to email employers but somehow you still find yourself unable to do it without fear of being rejected and turned away. Because then your dream would die.
And a dead dream is hard to revive.
No matter how much CPR you can muster.
Does that sound about right? I understand... because I’ve been there myself.

The only course of its kind that will kick off your dream wedding planner career with zero pressure and everything to gain
I’ve tirelessly refined my Assistant Wedding Planner Certificate course to help you get the best education on how to assist a wedding planner during a wedding.
In my own wedding planner business, I’ve hired many assistant wedding planners. Some were good and some were bad. I realized that the bad ones, most of the time, just didn’t understand how weddings worked. So I started a training program to teach my assistants the ins and outs of the wedding day, expectations, and best practices for helping me.
I know the ups and downs you will face, and I’ve incorporated my years of expertise as a wedding planner and an educator to the Assistant Wedding Planner Certificate course. This course is different because you'll:
Go from wondering how in the world you'll handle unforeseen problems
To feeling confident in your abilities and are able to stay in control when there are wedding day surprises
Go from feeling clueless about wedding flow and scared you'll be lost in a daze on the wedding day
To wowing fellow wedding planners with your skills and knowledge of wedding day tasks and management
Go from sending a gazillion emails asking planners to hire you only to hear crickets
To confidently communicating with wedding planners so that you can get hired on the spot
THE TOTAL VALUE FOR EVERYTHING IN THIS COURSE IS OVER $433
The price could increase very soon, so don't delay!

Be an assistant first! I’ve seen it over and over: a bride gets married and starts a wedding planning business. Then she is frustrated at the fact that she’s not booking clients even though she has a pretty website and pretty brand. The truth is it’s because she often lacks the experience to sell herself and her skills. That’s why I recommend assisting first.
THIS COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE...
Over the past 5 years, I’ve dedicated my life to helping aspiring wedding planners start a wedding planning career. The biggest mistake I’ve seen them make is when they go all in without a plan or any experience to back them up. I’ve seen them frustrated, tired, burned out, and everything in between….I’ve seen it all!
When you enroll, you get access to my tried and tested strategies that I’ve used for years to give my own assistants the confidence to run a wedding day on their own. In fact, many have since started their own wedding planning companies.
