Hello Aspiring Wedding Planners/Consultants:
My name is Deborah McCoy and I want to welcome you to the American Academy of Wedding Professionals. Since you're thinking of becoming a certified wedding planner/consultant, it's important to know if you have the personality and character traits to make it happen. I can tell you from my experience that it is a very rewarding profession.
The next step is to take a wedding-planning/consulting course that is endorsed by a bona fide professional trade organization like the American Academy of Wedding Professionals. We think we have a lot to offer you because of our training, experience and expertise. We also know that certified wedding-consulting/ planning courses cannot be taught or learned within a few days, and we know that wedding-planning/consulting books are very limited in their scope, information, and expertise.
We are also aware that many of the wedding-consulting/planning courses out there are not written by people who are involved in the bridal industry or ones who plan weddings regularly. We also know that very few are penned by nationally published authors. That's why I feel that we at the American Academy of Wedding Professionals has the best credentials and experience when it comes to the art of wedding planning.
I have been in the wedding-planning/consulting business for over 15 years. I have written four, nationally published bridal-reference and wedding-planning/ consulting books and appeared on Good Morning America, Sally Jessy Raphael, and the Rick Sanchez Show. My Comprehensive wedding-consulting/planning course is the best and most complete ever written.
My all-inclusive wedding planning/consulting course will provide you with all the information you'll need to plan any type of wedding. Once you pass the course, you'll be an AAWP certified wedding planner/consultant and will receive your Certificate of Achievement.
The American Academy of Wedding Professionals course will advance your education and teach you the nuances of wedding planning/consulting. You'll learn the value of networkings, how to track your clients' wedding-planning progress, help them stay within their budgets, and assist them with all other pertinent details when planning the perfect wedding.
In summary, wedding planning/consulting is an exhilarating career. It's fun, it's educational, and with a lot of hard work and dedication-and with the help of the American Academy of Wedding Professionals-you can get your certification and improve your career. Everyone loves a wedding!
I look forward to helping you advance your career in one of the country's fastest-growing and most lucrative occupations! Thanks much for your interest in the American Academy of Wedding Professionals.
