Hi

I'm Sarah and I've just signed up today. I live on the Beds/Bucks border and I'm really looking forward to starting my course.

I decided to do this course because I used to do event co ordination on a small scale for a company I used to work for, and then I've organised a few events in the past couple of years and I keep getting told I should do it on a more professional basis, so I thought I would do a course and take it from there ...

How is everyone finding the course ...I'm a bit concerned about having no deadline, do you find it hard to submit assignments, I'm a bit worried that, as I don't have any submission deadlines, I will keep hanging on to them and tweaking at them ...any tips ?

Hi Sarah,

Your not to far from me then! I finished last Christmas and I thought the same about deadlines as sometimes I will just push it back to the last minuite but once you get into you I couldn't put it down and I would say don't tweak to much, defiantly check for anything you feel you may have missed out but overall the tutors come back with how you could do better if you miss something out! I had Sharon Dawes she was super helpful and positive which kept me really going!! It took me about 7 months to finish

I have just started thinking up my business names and creating my website which is really interesting this course really helps you! I am still young so ALOT of bits to learn but I'm totaly ready and started to plan my friends wedding!!

Good luck to everyone who's started this course, love to hear how you get on and what you plan to do after you finish!

Lauren :)

Hi all I'm Jade,
You'll find me lurking in the Staffordshire area in Newcastle under Lyme :) A little bit in the middle of the country!
Glad to see some other UK students, I was unsure how many there would be when I joined! I'm awaiting the delivery of the pack in the post for the wedding planner course, I want to do this as a hobby initially as I've always had a very keen interest in the wedding jargon since I was a tiny girl!

How are you all finding it?
I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in, in fact I've already started to compile a good directory of businesses in my area who stock various dress designers, specific methods of travel, venues from racecourses to castles and cakes, flowers and up-cycled unique stationery. I get a little ahead of myself sometimes!

Hi all,
I am Millie and I am a London - based student. We should definitely do something more than just writing and organize a meeting for ourselves :D Summer is coming and there are so many great places where we can go for a weekend of ideas exchange, networking, advice and having fun. We all have so many questions and fears and loads of enthusiasm so what better than share it and get even more inspired in the company of like-minded people.
Good luck and hopefully, we'll see each other :D

Really enjoying so far, although Unit B is taking a long long time :shock:

Hi everyone ...
I’m from the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire area . :)

I’ve always had an interest in planning weddings and events, always planned family events for special occasions so I thought why not do this full time and actually do a job I enjoy :) currently only doing the job I do at the moment as I need to so I can pay the household bills.

My end goal is to be qualified and set up my own business in event and wedding planning both here in the uk as well as aboard :D

Hope everyone achieves there end goal
