Here at 27 Miracles Wedding Consulting we recommend contacting the Association of Bridal Consultants http://www.bridalassn.com/default.aspx or contacting Penn Foster http://www.pennfoster.edu/bridalconsultant/index.html for information on their course to become a wedding planner. Once you complete your program and obtain your certification, contact the Association of Bridal Consultants and let them know that you would like an internship with an established wedding planner in your area. If we are in your area contact us to see if we have any available openings for an internship. An internship gives you the ability to shadow a professional bridal consultant and his or her business to learn the basics of wedding planning and if this is for you. An Internship is an unpaid educational opportunity that will give you valuable lessons. What you take away from the experience is dependent on how much time and effort you place in the learning experience.
