All you wedding planners out there, I need your input. I am considering taking up wedding planning as a side job. But I want to do it right. Where do you suggest I get training/certification? I am not getting another Masters... I have a PhD already and I LOVE my full time job but want a part-time gig that I love. I have planned nonprofit events for the last 15 years or so and do a lot of entertaining. I am tired of hearing "You missed your calling" or "You should do this for a living" so I am ready to step out but I want consultation. Some people have pointed me to online certifications. Some have said apprentice (I do have a planner I can work with). Some have said get a Project Management Certification. I want good solid advice. What to do?
