If you cannot complete in the year, for $30 you can extend for a year. Honestly I have been planning weddings and events for over 30 year and I did the certification for...

Re: Ever Felt Blackballed or Bad-Mouthed by Another Wedding Pro?

FB and other social media is tough. My suggestion is, build you a website. Put your packages you offer out there. Don't put pricing. When you see someone posting needing a planner, send them your link so that other wedding (wanna be) planners can see you are ligit! Never post anything to a bride cau...

If you log into the QC Career School My Assignments, Assignment worksheet are there.

E4

I've done great up until now. It says Cocktail Reception. 4th paragraph says item #3 the menu. Typically there isn't served food at a cocktail reception. Maybe hors-d'oeuvre. But not a sit down meal.

Can anyone give me a little incite as to what they are really looking for?

Re: what would you do?

The answer is in Unit C in one of the business guides. I just read it today.

I would search online and send them a "collection" letter. Send it both by regular mail and by certified mail. Certified mail assures a signature (if they sign for it).

I would say yes it does. I had a bride last September that wanted a candy buffet at her wedding. We discussed what she wanted and what she like and so I did it. Just because you are a vendor doesn't mean it doesnt have a potential fit in event or wedding planning.
