CWEP Project 1 Blog

Posted By Kiauna Linzer, Saturday, February 8, 2020

Hi! My name is Kiauna. I am from a small town in Texas. My plans for event planning are to create weddings for couples that make memories last a lifetime! I recently got married myself and to this day, I have guest tell me how our wedding was the best wedding they have ever attended, seriously!

My experience with this course and project has been fun. I am not all the way clear on all the instructions since there are some gray areas, but I am winging it and having fun while I am doing this project. I started this course a couple months ago, but got really busy with work so I had to put this off to the side for a while. I thought this course was going to be easy and I could slide by, but I am finding that it comes with a lot of hard work and dedication behind the computer, just as you will be while planning a clients event!

My project was based on a made up scenario I thought up. I saw on the calendar that the 4th of July falls on a Saturday this year and I figured this would be the perfect time to build a theme! My couple wants an elegant wedding with a touch of formal since they are getting married on the biggest outside holiday of the year! My goal for the couple is to be able to throw the best wedding with great food, good times and an awesome firework show! Enjoy!

Hi, I´m Marlisa from Portland, Oregon. I love your 4th of July wedding idea and believe it´s a wonderful theme for an outdoor wedding! All of the little details from the red, white, and blue cake to the flower petals look perfect. Ending the night with a firework is not only a great way to celebrate the holiday, but also the couple.
I agree with you that there were a lot of grey areas for the project and not all instructions were very clear. If it wasn´t for the example projects, I don´t know if I could have completed the project since it was very confusing which parts needed to be included in the project. Like you, I also thought that I would be able to do the certification on the side while going to school and working, but soon realized that that´s almost impossible. Now I only have a couple of weeks left to complete the project and had to cut down drastically on work hours in order to finish it. But like you said, starting a business and planning events takes a lot of time and dedication, so it would make sense that the certification prepares us for that right away!
I wish you the best of luck with your certification!
Best wishes,
