Certificate in Destination Wedding Planning

Is the Certificate in Destination Wedding Planning the right course for me?

If you are looking to specialize in destination weddings then you may have just found your course match! Many students take this course to combine their love of travel and weddings or because they live in a popular location for weddings. This course will teach you not only to plan weddings to perfection but how to understand and comply with the marriage legalities in different states and countries.

What are the career options after I graduate?

This course is perfect for those looking to set up their own business as a destination wedding planner or seeking employment as a planner within a resort or hotel. You will learn how to price your services, start a business, manage contracts and insurance as well as how to market yourself to destination wedding clients.

When can I start the course?

All our courses are online which gives you the flexibility to learn anywhere and at times that suits you. So you really can fit your course around your lifestyle. Many of our students study whilst having a full time job and/or looking after a family.

Can I become a destination wedding planner if I don’t live in that region?

In short, yes. Our course will help you understand the global legalities as well as how to respect religious and cultural traditions. Many planners offer destination wedding services in regions they do not live, but if this is the case you will need to do your research and network with venues and suppliers in that location. Dependent on where you are operating, some understanding of the language is a bonus but not essential.

How long will the course take me?

That really depends on how much time you can devote to your studies per week. There are no set deadlines for the individual assignments. Some students have completed this course in as little as 12 weeks and others have taken the full year allocated for completion.

I have no prior experience of wedding planning. Can I still take the course?

Absolutely! We will start you with the basics and build up from there. Once you enroll you will be assigned a dedicated tutor who will mentor you through your course and provide comprehensive feedback on your assignments.
