"I wanted to let you know that I used the Sample Form of the Explanation of Services (from the training manual) as a reference to make my own explanations about services I offer in my packages. It was very helpful for me because I tend to get stuck on what to say and often have a hard time selling myself. So I took the information and applied it to the services I was talking to a bride and her mother about, and they actually had a better understanding of what I was offering them. I can tell you that this instance alone was well worth signing up for this class. Thanks for all that you have done to help others achieve success in this business and give them the knowledge that is necessary to do this job well-it is so valuable and I know that I made a very good decision in taking this course!" - Donna

"I've seen several wedding consultant training programs and Nuptial Essentials is head and shoulders above the rest. The depth and breadth of knowledge and information is invaluable - to both existing planners and newbies. I went through the course after four years of being in business and still learned a great deal. And my two other planners took the course as well and both learned a lot. All future Soir�e planners will be required to take the Nuptial Essentials program." - Denise Silverman, Soir�

"AAHHHHHHHHHHHH!! I MADE IT! I remember when I began searching for a program in March 2008. I took it upon myself to contact the consultant in the area named Kayla Banks to inquire as to the program that she used as I surfed the web to locate GREAT certification progarm. She referred me to Nuptial Essentials. I had not taken an on-lione course and really felt a little uneasy. However, I do enjoy a challenge (that portfolio was a challenge). Well, I'm still pinching myself to verify that it is true. Thank you for taking the time to grade my portfolio personally. I came home and I had guest over. I saw a UPS truck pull up outside of my house. I pulled out the binder and peeked inside the cover and slid out the letter. The first sentence got me at 'Congratulations!!!!' YEA!!!!!! I screamed. I danced around and continued to scream 'I AM A CERTIFIED POFESSIONAL WEDDING CONSULTANT!' Joyce Thomas , PWC... YEAH! Again, thank you for everything. I feel that I'm much more equipped to plan a wedding and feel more confident about it. Your course is well worth it!" - Joyce A. Thomas

"Hi Amy, I wanted you to know how much I am enjoying getting my certification. I have followed all of the steps outlined in the book and am applying them to my everyday business. I got my DBA, have organized my office, outlined my services and contracts and am ready to work on as many events as I can! Thank you for your guidance and instruction...it has really been worthwhile and truly inspiring! I am sure I will have some questions along the way, but for right now, I seem to be on track." - Heather Carroll
