Education, Your Event Career

4 Perks You’ll ONLY Get from an Online Wedding Planning Course

If you have dreams of becoming a wedding planner, then you likely already intend to enroll in a professional wedding planning course. This is the right call! After all, there’s no better way to hone your skills, get the training you need, and receive a recognized professional certification.

Of course, then the real question becomes: should you do your schooling online or in-person?

While there are pros and cons to either option, you might not realize just how many benefits there truly are when it comes to pursuing your education virtually. We’re even willing to go so far as to say that there are more benefits to online wedding planning school, compared to what you’d find in its brick-and-mortar alternative.

1 – Online School is WAY Less Expensive

For starters, an in-person wedding planning course can be outrageously costly. You could be looking at paying several thousand dollars or more just for one program!

Online school, on the other hand, is typically offered to you at a fraction of the price. This doesn’t mean that your wedding planning course is of lesser value, though! On the contrary, the quality of your education will remain exactly the same. The only real difference is that there’s no physical campus or other external factors to consider. You’ll only be getting charged for your program, your course materials, and anything else related strictly to your learning experience!

2 – Online School is WAY More Personalized

In-person classes are tailored for an entire classroom, not just for you. Sometimes this forces you to sacrifice the quality of your own education, for that education to be delivered to the entire class. If you’re sitting at the back of a large classroom, you might miss important details during your tutor’s demonstration. If you can’t hear everything properly, you could lose out on critical information. You get the idea.

Your online wedding planning course, however, is created with only YOU in mind. All of your course materials – textbooks, videos, assignments, etc. – are put together meticulously so that you never miss a single detail. Since it’s just you and your tutor, your virtual instructor will also ensure to always provide you with the most detailed, beneficial feedback. This way, you’ll never have to guess where your strengths are, versus what you need to improve on!

3 – Online School is WAY More Flexible

I mentioned flexibility earlier, so let’s circle back to that for a second. Online school offers flexibility in spades. You can work whenever you want! If you have free time and can afford to devote full-time hours to your coursework? Fantastic! If you’re already a busy bee and can only devote a few hours to your program per month? That’s totally fine, too!

A major benefit to online schools is that they understand that many students already lead very busy lives. The course curricula are put together with you in mind, so you can meet your goals on your own time.

Fun Fact: Did you know that by simply devoting 1-2 hours per WEEK towards QC’s Wedding Planning Course, you can graduate and launch your career in as little as 3 months? That sort of flexibility works for practically any schedule!

Brick-and-mortar schools, on the other hand, aren’t nearly as versatile. If you were to attend a physical wedding planning course, you would be required to attend the classes on the school’s time – regardless of whether it conflicts with your personal schedule or not.

But what if you’re unavailable at the time of the class? What if you live in a place that doesn’t even offer an in-person wedding planning course in the first place?

Unfortunately, you’d be out of luck.

4 – Online School is WAY More Convenient

As we mentioned above, not everyone has access to in-person wedding planning courses. But to go beyond that, we’ve been in the midst of a global pandemic all year! A lot of people either can’t or don’t want to put themselves at risk by attending a physical school right now.

That alone pretty much shuts the door on the possibility of a brick-and-mortar school. Does that then mean that you should just give up on your dreams of becoming a professional wedding planner? Not on our watch!

An online wedding planning course can be done from virtually anywhere – even the comfort of your own home! What’s better than being able to pursue your career goals and get high-quality schooling, without even having to change out of your jammies?

We honestly can’t think of anything. That sounds pretty darn good to us!
