Learning how to be a professional wedding planner can be overwhelming. But, it doesn’t have to be if you arm yourself with the education you need before jumping head first into the deep end. Building a foundation is an important first step on anyone’s journey to success and helping aspiring planners gain just that is what LVL Academy is all about.
The team from LVL Weddings and Events created LVL Academy two years ago with the goal of elevating the wedding industry by helping to give aspiring wedding planners a foundation that sets them up for success. They are passionate about training, educating, and elevating our industry because (it goes without saying) a rising tide lifts all boats.
“LVL Academy was a beautifully inspired weekend that gave me the foundation to start my dream career as a wedding planner. Since last fall, I have been blessed to intern with Couture Events and will begin working with Qualcomm’s event staff in the coming month. The tools and the connections I received from the LVL Academy were worth the investment. If you dream in weddings, LVL is there to help turn your dreams into a reality.” – Katie Bubnack, 2015 Academy Graduate
Wedding planning is so much more than guiding your couple through vendor selection and ceremony design. It involves building networks of professionals, managing budgets, logistics, and expectations. It’s about being prepared for every possible scenario on the day of the wedding and making sure that a team of vendors is where they need to be, when they need to be.
At LVL Academy, you’ll have hands on instruction and lecturing that teaches you the foundational lessons you need to be a successful wedding planner. And because you’ll cover such a broad base of knowledge (that’s too long to completely list out) here’s a sample of what you’ll learn: how to create a wedding timeline, master a wedding budget, run a wedding rehearsal, the difference between planning and coordination, how to cut a wedding cake, the ins and outs of logistics and rentals, what to have in your emergency kit, how to create the perfect table setting, and social media advice and tips.
