How to become a Wedding Planner - Wedding Consultant? The answer is a businesswoman with 14 years of experience in the wedding industry.


How to become a Wedding Planner?

You ask me this question a lot during Q&A sessions or live. The answer to this question is extensive, and it really depends on the choices you make - each one entails another, but the paths to achieving the goal may differ.



Answer the question: why do you want to be a Wedding Planner - Wedding Consultant?

What do you want give to each other and the world? How do you want to make your clients' wedding day better?


What do you want to achieve for myself? Do you dream about your own business or don't you want to have a boss? Do you want to create your own business or do you prefer to work on proven solutions?


It will depend on whether you run your business or look for work.



Check what predispositions you already have and what are still missing

Here you will find the list, but do not treat it as a checklist, but as a tool for long-term development. This is not a test, but a signpost.



Get Wedding Planner skills in organizing weddings

Do this by gaining learning and experience.


You can read in books and textbooks in the field of wedding organization, in podcasts and movies on YouTube (I recommend American and Australian items, because the wedding market is there at the highest level in the world). You can also opt for professional participation Course at Wedding Plannerwhere a professional and longtime expert will share with you his knowledge and experience in a complete and systematic way.


When choosing training, pay attention to Trainer's experience and educationand also exactly compare programs training available on the market.


Check also what brand on the wedding market built a training company because the trainer will teach you how to organize weddings and how to run a business based on on my own example and style of work. See the backstage of his work, and preferably also the lifestyle he leads - check out his private Instagram or account on Facebook.


Check if you confess in life similar values. If, for example, you believe that your reputation should be built based on ethical actions, because it is not appropriate to speak badly about competition in public, and your candidate for a Trainer builds his competitive advantage not only by talking well about himself, but also by belittling others - his Course and style of work may be a misunderstanding for you.


If you still have doubts, write down the questions and call the trainer - check if you are on the same wavelength, will you get a nice contact, will it answer your questions in an understandable way, will you feel that you have a similar approach to creating your own brand and wedding business.



Create a business plan for your Wedding Planner company - a wedding agency

Based on how you answered the question why you want to become a Wedding Planner, you need to build original offer on the marketwhich will be based on yours authenticity and individuality.


Thanks to this you will attract customers who resonate with you, and you won't have competition in this narrow market segment. I will tell you that on the wedding market competition imitation strategy doesn't work. If you will be like all agencies, you will have to compete with them primarily on price, because the customer will choose a more experienced or cheaper one.


If you do not stand out with anything, you will attract random customers and your development will be very slow. Therefore, your offer cannot be bland and addressed to everyone - because if something is for everything, it is for nothing.


When choosing training, see if the training company meets this condition: Does it stand out by itself? Does he have a strong personality? Is it expressive? And most importantly: Will he share business and marketing knowledge with you?



How to become a Wedding Planner? See if I can help you!


For 4 years under Academy of Wedding Studios I run the Wedding Planner Expert Course for Wedding Consultant - most frequently chosen Course in Poland, in which I trained over 3 people in 400 years. It sounds proud and it's true - I'm extremely excited about our Academy it's not just training, but a real community, based on the primary value that I believe in life - on relationships with other people.


That is why for so many years I could not imagine creating an Online Course, but when the waiting time for taking a full-time course has long exceeded six months, and recent changes in the world have allowed me to develop ideal solutions for working online, I thought I was ready to create an online course still based on relationshipsand what helps us build them?


  1. Interactive training panel - you can do any lesson watch as many times as you like, you will receive access to the course for up to 6 months, thanks to which you can record the material wonderfully at your own pace. Under each movie you can ask me questions - which only you and I see, and which I answer once every 2 days during the evening video conferencing - yes, it will not be live, only interaction and getting to know the whole group. Not only the relationships between me and you are extremely important to me, but I also care about those between you.


  1. Individual course of teaching - the program is divided into 8 days, 3-5 hours a day, but that's it You decide what time and where you process the material and whether you do it on your computer, tablet or phone. Thanks to this, you can take part in the Course even if you take care of children or work full time every day. See you live once a week at 21 p.m. - when nothing bothers us anymore, and thanks to the questions asked before, even if you are late for the meeting, you know that I will answer your question and you will listen to the answer when it is convenient for you.


  1. Are you worried that we don't know each other personally? Nothing could be more wrong - each of you receives 2 hours of individual consultations with me, which you can pick up as conveniently - online or in our office in Gdynia, where in private we will talk about your business.


Today I know that an online course is a great opportunity - to take it trainings from anywhere in the world, at any time of the day or night, and thanks to the Online Course, I don't have to limit myself to 4 days as in the case of the Stationary Course, so I was able to prepare a bit more.

    Interesting content bringing a lot of new knowledge

  • Grazyna

    I am interested in such a course. When will it be organized again? What the cost?

    • Agnieszka

      I am very pleased with your interest in my course. The next edition of the course will be held on September 23-26 in Gdańsk. At the same time, an online course will also be launched for all those who are not able to take part in a full-time course. You can also find all the necessary information about the course here: Wedding Planner Expert course

    Great idea, I think the course is relevant, especially now that the pandemic is about to come back.

  • 20.07.2020

    A very fun job and allows you to develop your imagination. Each wedding is different and requires a different approach, just as each couple has different tastes and you must always find the perfect ones. It seems to me that the work is very nice, but also difficult and requires a lot of accuracy.

  • 11.07.2020

    Great entry, I've always been very interested. Maybe it's time to try? 🙂

  • 01.07.2020

    Thanks for this post, I am at the crossroads and I do not know which way to go more, I do not know what I will feel best and fulfill ...

  • 25.06.2020

    Now I have to think about changing my mind after this post. It's very interesting and thought-provoking.

  • 01.06.2020

    I have always admired wedding planners - for me it is a lot of things to do at once, small head, and yet there are people who not only love it, but they also do it brilliantly. Respect!

  • Julia

    For now, I am at the stage of planning my wedding - we will see how it goes, because I decided to do everything myself. I am currently looking for a proven DJ

  • 13.05.2019

    I would add an 12 point. that is contacts, and those in business are at a premium. A wedding is a large undertaking and it is worth having at least a few trusted companies in every field (let's say the goal, because it's difficult at the beginning) to be able to save the situation in crisis moments. I can recommend a florist in Warsaw, which will definitely be a lifebuoy for a wedding planner in this part of Poland. Sam, I was somewhere in the industry after organizing my own wedding.

    I read that you are preparing a course. So I say in advance that for a few years Emotikon wink will appear on it. It is true that I am only 17 years old but being a consultant is my dream that I will dream of. I want to finish interior architecture and German studies and then be a consultant (do you think these faculties will help me and give me some benefits in this longed-for profession?). I really know I'm too young but I want to plan it. And I am looking for a lot of information on how to prepare for this profession and thanks to your blog I fell in love with it even more.

  • Ola Zielińska

    Hello 🙂
    I read that you are preparing a course. So I say in advance that for sure in a few years it will appear 😉 Although I'm only 17 years old but being a public consultant is my dream that I will strive for. I want to finish interior architecture and German studies and then be a consultant (do you think these faculties will help me and give me some benefits in this longed-for profession?). I really know I'm too young but I want to plan it. And I am looking for a lot of information on how to prepare for this profession and thanks to your blog I fell in love with it even more.

  • 27.10.2015

    Ah, are you preparing a course? 🙂

    • 28.10.2015

      Yes 🙂 it is to start after the new year 🙂 and it will have the accreditation of the Polish Association of Wedding Consultants - preparations are underway 🙂

    • Magdalena Brojanowska

      Indicative - how much will such a course last and cost?

    • 17.11.2015

      I am working on the offer, I will also want to do a survey of expectations in order to best fit in with the expectations of the market. After all, these trainings will be for you 🙂
      I initially plan two types of courses:
      - weekend - 1 ride 20 hours
      - weekend - 3 sessions of 20 hours each
      - individual - to be agreed.
      The price will include coffee breaks and lunch. Initially, the trainings will be in Gdynia, but eventually in other cities as required.

    • 07.01.2016

      Registration for the first courses has started, and there are answers to all questions 🙂

  • Creating our world

    Awesome entry! He answered many of my questions 😉 But tell me honestly whether there is work for new consultants. In many professions it is very difficult to stand out, and there is a fight about jobs. I was thinking about the course but it is expensive. Therefore, before I make a decision, I would like to know if I will have a chance to work in a profession. I finished hospitality also some knowledge on this topic I have 😉

    • 27.10.2015

      That's a great question! I save as post idea. In short, a consultant should think about his own business, agencies that employ full-time employees are negligible in Poland. Usually, the main Consultants in the Agency are Partners, and they regularly employ Consultants to help, for example, at weddings or meetings or for office work during periods of hard work.

  • cosmomama

    You don't even know how you enjoyed me with this post. I was supposed to write a message asking you about the job of a wedding consultant, but somehow I felt stupid 😉 I am at the stage of thinking what to do next, as I will be sitting with Mały for a while, I can use this time also for some trainings and courses and I was wondering which direction to go and the consultant's work has been on my mind for some time, so I'm looking forward to the next posts related to this topic 🙂

    • 07.01.2016

      Cool, I am very happy - if you want to ask about something - feel free to write 🙂

  • 26.10.2015

    Knowing my passion for decorating, graphics, working under time pressure - I could become a wedding consultant 😉
    The only thing that bothers me is the night shift 😉 But I think it can get used to it.
    You can see that work gives you a lot of satisfaction. I keep my fingers crossed for the continuous development of your company: *

    • 26.10.2015

      If you have no meetings and you are not at a wedding (the season lasts from the end of May to the beginning of September), you can safely work during the day. Unfortunately, our clients are usually very busy people who want to meet us in their free time, i.e. after work, so in the evenings, and if they are visitors on weekends. But this is not so much, you can always take the whole day off the next day and make it up to the children 🙂

    • 26.10.2015

      Ah and thank you for the comment, I am very pleased that you receive me so and thank you for the thumbs: *

    • 26.10.2015

      If I get bored with my classes, I will think about the profession of a "wedding consultant"
      PS I wrote you a private message on insta;)

  • 25.10.2015

    A very interesting post. If I was just looking for my way, I would even take such a job into account ... It once crossed my mind. But this presence at the wedding until the very end ... Gosh, I don't like weddings so much that I probably wouldn't be able to work like that :). And you still do it all yourself, or do your employees deal with such things as the Coordination of the Wedding Day?

    • 25.10.2015

      Thank you for your opinion. Except for one season in which I was pregnant, I was in all coordination, but always with help - we usually coordinate weddings with 3 people, then we have a high comfort of work, but there was a case of a very logistically complicated wedding, which we coordinated even with 6 people.

  • Monika Wojtaś

    great entry really :))

  • 25.10.2015

    Once I was on such a course the lady who taught him belongs to PSKS and the only thing she did was constantly discouraging me from this profession. I wanted to consolidate my knowledge there and learn something interesting, but I only came out discouraged. However, the experience I had before the course was the best school and in retrospect then that the course was a waste of money. I could have chosen something completely different to offer a wider range of skills to my couples. Now I have just gone to English to improve my pronunciation.

    • 25.10.2015

      On the one hand, I understand what the Course Leader meant by honestly also about the difficult sides of this profession, which I am also talking about - stress, responsibility, unreliability. All this is to save disappointment to those who expect that this work is only easy and pleasant.
      But I'm sure there can be many more good sites!
      Thank you for writing about it, thanks to the post about how to choose a Wedding Consultant course I will write to find out as much as possible not only about the company organizing the training, but also about the Trainer and try to answer the question whether we think we are able to like this person, whether he bears sympathy and passion for what he does.

    • 25.10.2015

      Yes, I know it is not easy, I am learning all the time and I think that this learning will never end. Because there are no two the same couples and two the same weddings. The course lacked specific examples of crisis and positive situations. Examples of their solutions. And I could talk about weddings for hours because despite all the hardships, the fact that I don't sleep the more I have on my mind, the happier I am. And as you wrote, I ran out of passion here because now I know that if you love something, the face on this topic does not close 😀 And on the course I felt like on some lecture. And despite the fact that it was supposed to be a pleasure for me and the culmination of the first two weddings, such an award was only disappointed.

    • 25.10.2015

      I am very sorry to read about it. But know that it is very valuable to me what you write. I have been training with myself since the new year and such opinions are precious to me.
      And I can talk about weddings for hours, I'm afraid that I will talk to everyone about life examples and we will finish after midnight 😉
      When I was on the course 6 years ago, I asked a lot of questions, and I absorbed “real-life” stories like a sponge. The course I was on lasted several weekends and thanks to that we could really learn a lot. Additionally, we also participated in the coordination of the wedding day, and I think that is a fantastic thing! I hope that my experience, combined with what I would like to receive myself, will allow me to create a really valuable course and train fantastic consultants.

    • 26.10.2015

      I was also asking questions, trying to "get something out", I gave one sudden situation from my first wedding and I wanted to know how a professional would solve it. I received a very vague answer and all the time I had the impression that you did not want to share your knowledge.
