My time as a LWPI Student

Posted By Christina Grier, Tuesday, August 30, 2016

It's crazy realizing my first course with Lovegevity is almost coming to an end. I'm excited about finishing up these last projects and assignments and preparing to take the exam. Had I started out on my own trying to get my wedding planning business off the ground, it would have been much more difficult. Now, with the help of LWPI and the training I've received as a soon-to-be certified wedding and event planner, I have so much more confidence to go out and meet brides to help them plan their wedding day.

That's what I feared most prior to starting this class. A wedding day is one of the most momentous occasions in life. I would have hated if I'd dont anything (even unintentional) to mess up or dampen a Bride's big day. I now feel confident in what I'm doing, and know I'm capable of walking a couple through the process to plan their wedding. It's also great timing since my boyfriend just proposed 2 weeks ago, so now I get to be my own first client! As I begin to plan my own wedding, I will put to use what I've learned, and will see through trial and error, what works and what may have been better left to other professionals. The most important thing I've taken away though is to use my own advice. I believe all Bride's should hire at least a day-of coordinator if possible. So while I'll be the guinea pig in planning this first wedding, I will hire a month-of coordinator to hand over all the details to make my day perfect.

Thank you LWPI for teaching me so much! I'm excited for what's to come.

Hello! My name is Claire Talley and I am based in Nashville, TN currently. . I had no idea how to start my own business and now feel so prepared to start this journey. I was also very afraid of messing up a bride's big day, still am a little bit, but at least feel much more prepared. Good luck! And congrats on your engagement!!

Hey Christina! I really enjoyed reading your blog post! I agree on your part where you stated that had you started the business from the ground up, it would have been more difficult. I can relate to this. I am also a student here and enrolled in the CWEP program and am interning with a wedding planner who did not go to a wedding planner course before she started her business. She started as a florist and then "became" a wedding planner. I find that our assignments, as tedious as they are, as well as exams and online discussions are helping to pave our way to a successful business in the future. There are issues that the other planner and I have due to the fact that I am in school for this and she did not. And I totally admire that you are planning your own wedding! I think knowing what we have been taught will be a tremendous help in your planning!!!! Good luck to you, your future marriage, and your future business!
