I just got a job working for Rebecca Hackl Events in Dallas and honestly there is no need for you to go to an event planning school. Your best bet is to get a bachelors degree in hospitality and find yourself an internship in the field for a summer and hopefully if it goes successful and you prove yourself they will offer you a permanent job. There are certification classes you can take to gain resume experience but most firms are independently owned and just want someone that's willing to learn with the drive or previous event planning experience.(Such as the AACWP-American Association of Certified Wedding Planners) Most companies look down upon wedding planning schools because none of them are truly nationally known, It's instead someone just trying to make a quick buck from young women trying to get into their "dream job". I hope some of this info. help. Best of Luck!

Read you comment, I just got certified for event wedding planning and I went through Wedding Planning Institute, and found an online class is was wonderful! but they also offered it in classrooms at the University of Richmond, near me but you can search for schools offereing the same course I took online in colleges around VA! Hope it helps! weddingplanninginstitute.com find your school for wedding planning through gatlineeducation.com first tho.

I am looking for a wedding and event planning school. Is it best to take a course in event planning through a community college or specific wedding planning school ? Have not been able to find a wedding planning school located in Portland, OR.

Im an interior decorator thats currently very slow in the business due to the housing market. So, I thought possibly a career in Event and wedding planning would be a good direction to go since I have had experience in designing for weddings and major events. Do I need to take an online course or local college for this career?

I always search jobs on craigslist and yahoo but I do not know what to type in when looking to find a job either event planning or working at a reception hall planning the weddings. I graduate with a bachelors in March in communications so I want to get my feet wet. ANy thoughts?

I see your question was a while ago and hopefully you're a wedding planner by now! So the next step is to get your name out there. My best luck has been through creating a free profile on www.GatheringGuide.com if you're looking for suggestions.

There's a list of wedding planners in VA on www.gatheringguide.com/event_dir/va_virginia/evl_event_planners.html If you want to narrow it down by city, you can get even more specific. Just call a few people and compare prices from there.
