What is a wedding planning course?

A wedding planning course will cover course content that helps you create a wedding, step-by-step. Whether you want to own your own wedding planning business or as one of a team of event managers working for a large company, understanding how a person’s wedding day fits together can be a crucial part of your career.

Depending on what it is you’re aiming to get out of your course, there is a range of wedding planning courses that could suit you. 

A short course may be suitable if you’re only interested in one area of wedding planning, or if you’ve already completed an event management course and are looking to specialise. Meanwhile, if you’re looking work full time as a wedding planner, then a Diploma of Event Management with a focus on being a wedding organiser may be more suited to your needs.

How to study as an event planner or wedding planner:

Courses in event planning and wedding planning can be taught through both TAFE and university, although TAFE typically focuses more on short courses.

Many courses are available in part or entirely as an online course, which means you can study your course materials and complete assessments from home. Many registered training organisations (RTOs) also part-time courses, making it easier for you to complete a course at your own pace, or study full time to fast track your career as a wedding planner!
