There have been plenty of wedding events in the UK and abroad (look at Meghan & Harry, Jade Jagger & Adrian Fillary) to whet our appetites and make us want to do one of two things:
1. Actually tie the knot ourselves!
2. Take a Management Course that will enhance our career as a Party Planner and wedding organiser
Having done the first (which incidentally caused me no end of stress as I decided to organise my own wedding event thinking it would be easy – I should have concentrated on my role as the Bride and handed over my checklist to a wedding planner!) and survived the institution that is ‘marriage’ for the last 10 years, I’d go for the second option!
According to the Office of National Statistics, the average age at which a woman gets married is now 30 years and a man is 32. The reason being for this is that we have an aging population who are concentrating on their careers before saying “I do” and starting a family. It may be safe to say that these professional couples are often cash-rich and time-poor:
• Being cash rich allows them to employ someone to give them (and their guests) a Wedding that is memorable and has a real WOW factor. With less than a third of weddings taking place as part of a religious ceremony, more and more couples see their wedding as an event.
• Being time- poor means they just don’t have the spare time to devote to their wedding event that is needed (the average wedding can take up to 250 hours of organisation – that equates to a staggering 7 full working weeks)
Hence the need for you…the Wedding Planner… and your need for a wedding planner course!
So how can the Event Academy help you train for the best wedding planner jobs in the UK? Both our part-time Diploma and full-time Postgraduate Diploma Event Management course offer practical help, advice and training for those who not only want to organise a wedding event but who also want to make a career out of this booming industry. Our expert lecturers, who also run successful wedding event companies, will cover the following in their session:
• An overview of the UK wedding industry, current trends and religious implications
• Key attributes of a Wedding Planner and relationships with clients and guests
• Creativity as a wedding or party planner
• Creating and managing wedding budgets
• How to use resources effectively
• Guidance and advice for those considering starting their own wedding event business
