Wedding Coordination and Design is much more than finding the right attire and planning a beautiful party.

Why should I take Wedding Coordination & Design?

 

Wedding Coordination and Design is not for the faint of heart; a good coordinator is a guide, confidant, and general during the most important day in a couple’s lives. This program is for those that can be all three, but also want to achieve competence in the technical areas—financial, organizational, commercial, and social—that separate the amateur from the true wedding professional. Whether you’re looking to start your own business or join a team of pros, this is the course for you.
