Course description

The Wedding Planner Diploma Level 3 course has been authored by the gentleman who organised Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s spectacular wedding and also Robbie Williams' 30th birthday party!

The Wedding Planner Diploma course can in effect become a handbook of best practice and used as a checklist to ensure sure that you have thought of each and every minor detail running up to a wedding! The Wedding Planner Diploma course is a practical programme where you will learn to become a qualified Wedding Planner. This course is also suitable if you are planning your own wedding or a one for family or friends.

With the above in mind it is important to understand the background in which a Wedding Planner operates and what are the national trends for marriage ceremonies in the UK today. The Office for National Statistics can provide up-to-date information on wedding trends. Indeed, people are putting off getting married until they are older; according to recent figures released by the Office of National Statistics the average age for the first marriage is 31 for women and 29 for men. Less people are getting married; in 2006 the number of marriages fell by 4% compared with the year before. The long-term picture in the United Kingdom is one of decline, although Northern Ireland has seen a small increase.

There are more people getting married for the second time; in 2006 remarriages accounted for 39% of all marriages, with 61% of marriages being the first marriage for both partners. Civil Ceremonies have increased in popularity; since 1992 there have been more civil ceremonies in England and Wales than religious ceremonies. In 2006 civil ceremonies accounted for 66% of all ceremonies. With the cost of an average wedding in 2008 estimated at £20,273 by You and Your Wedding magazine it becomes essential for brides and their relations to ensure that they are getting the best value for their money and need to ensure that everything goes to plan during one of their most expensive outlays during the couples life.

The wedding industry is made up of multiple small enterprises like caterers, venues, dress suppliers, photographers, musicians etc. The industry itself was valued by the financial firm Brewin Dolphin at £4.2 billion recently. This highly diverse market coupled with the large sums of money that are spent on creating wedding celebrations means that the role of the Wedding Planner takes on great importance and responsibility.

This Wedding Planner course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to plan every aspect of the perfect Wedding.
