Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants

Every year, there are approximately 2.5 million weddings in the United States. The wedding industry has grown to an empire of 40 billion dollars per year. Television shows such as Say Yes to the Dress, My Fair Wedding with David Tutera, and Rich Bride, Poor Bride have brought modern day weddings to the forefront of American culture. Wedding TV shows allow viewers to see all the hard work and planning that goes into this one-day event.

With the average wedding costing over $25,000, most couples don’t want to leave anything to chance. This is why it is so important to have a trained professional at the helm. A certified wedding planner can guide couples on their trip to the altar so that they avoid unnecessary stress and unexpected costs.
