Students wishing to gain the most enjoyment out of a career can supplement an education with certificates and courses in event planning specializing in the competitive field of wedding planning. The multifaceted industry of wedding planning involves business savvy, social graces and current trend awareness. The well trained and educated planner will have a core understanding of budgeting, negotiation skills, insurance and liability standards in addition to providing desirable locations and advice with tact and grace.

Event planning is the process of organizing a festival, ceremony, competition, party, concert or meeting gathering. The wedding specialization delves into the intricacies of establishing dates and alternate dates, selecting and reserving locations, acquiring permits and coordinating transportation and event parking. One of the primary needs of a wedding planner is for time crunched couples seeking the guidance of a professional in the development of a theme, arranging decor, renting tables, chairs and tents for catering.

Weddings are significant events in people's lives and with busy couples trying to prepare such an event while still fulfilling career and family responsibilities the task is sometimes better left to a professional. A well-organized wedding can relieve stress and ensure both the guests and the couple getting married will have a memorable experience.

Graduates of an event planning program can supplement an education with specialized certificates in business, a foreign language, fashion or design. Professional wedding planning is a lucrative business in the U.S. and the availability of practical academic courses are becoming common in many schools. Successful planners will be able to enter the industry with the competitive advantage of a formal education.
