general information

Nuptial Essentials is the most modern, comprehensive, supportive, and legitimate wedding consultant training program available today. The Nuptial Essentials curriculum is everything a prospective wedding consultant needs to start a business, plan and execute flawless weddings.

Nuptial Essentials was founded by Amy Mader. Amy has more than 20 years in the wedding industry. She have planned more than 200 weddings and has appeared in media outlets such as The Austin American Statesman and The Knot's Real Weddings Texas.

Amy recognized there was a gap in the educational offerings for today's wedding planners. There are several offerings out there, but none that truly meets the needs of a modern wedding planner. In an effort to raise the standards of wedding consultant education she formed a vocational school that is modern, comprehensive, supportive and legitimate.

After 18 months of planning, researching and writing, Nuptial Essentials' manual is the most modern and comprehensive offering available on the market today. The manual contains absolutely everything you will need to know in order to start your own wedding consulting business - everything from writing a business plan to marketing your business to how to negotiate with vendors to executing a perfect wedding.

Nuptial Essentials offers its students a wonderful support system - every student is assigned an instructor so they have someone to turn to with questions. The support continues beyond the completion of the course as students are also given a complimentary one-year membership in the Nuptial Essentials Association of Wedding Professionals.

And students can be reassured that Nuptial Essentials is regulated by the government - it is one of the only government-regulated vocational schools in the wedding consultant training market. Nuptial Essentials is licensed and regulated by the Texas Workforce Commission, Career Schools and Veterans Education, and is the only vocational school for wedding consultant instruction licensed by the state of Texas.

NECI Mission Statement
The mission of Nuptial Essentials Curriculum and Instruction is to raise the standard of excellence for wedding consultants by providing the most comprehensive basic training and continuing education available in the world.
