Wedding Planners

Known as weddings planners, wedding producers and wedding coordinators, these event professionals take on the gargantuan task of planning a couple’s “special day”. While planning such events is most certainly a “calling” filled with passion and purpose, an event professional must also have business acumen to be as successful as a business owner.


Event Planners Association membership is similar to a wedding planner association membership, and provides the foundational elements needed for a successful business for all weddings planners. Proper legal agreements, liability insurance, risk management practices and business structure all contribute to the viability of a business. Continuing education strengthens areas where knowledge is needed, which is where the EPA sets itself apart from wedding planner associations.


The EPA also provides the support system needed for personal and professional growth in the weddings planners industry. One of the greatest resources for professional and personal development of weddings planners is the connection between professionals in the same industry. Access to other’s experiences and knowledge will allow weddings planners members to broaden their insights, solve challenges and develop innovative ways to build businesses. The relationships formed through weddings planners networking through wedding planner associations like the EPA can be long-lasting and fulfilling from a personal and professional perspective.


Our goal is to give members the opportunity to work together. Event professionals typically work in clusters or teams with those they know, like and trust. EPA membership facilitates this symbiotic relationship through local chapters and the soon-to-be released membership directory designed to build your client base where consumers can find a wedding planner.
