Ready to start planning?
Welcome to Course One of my intensive online training program for wedding planners.
I'm Brittany Frid, award-winning wedding planner and designer. I've created a 6-course intensive training program specifically designed to give wedding planners the training they need to professionally plan, design and coordinate weddings.
I'm doing a deep-dive into the wedding industry to provide more practical training than any program currently available through colleges and certification programs in North America.
Do any of these sound familiar?
You're starting to plan a wedding but you have no idea what vendors should cost, how the wedding budget should be divided, and how to stay on budget.
You have been to a couple weddings but you aren't actually sure how to make a Timeline for the wedding day. What gets included? How long should things take?
You've got a pretty good handle on planning so far, but you're worried about creating backup plans for an outdoor wedding and need to know what's included.
It was stressful starting to plan weddings professionally. I couldn't find templates, didn't know the cost of weddings and couldn't find a course to help me understand what really goes into the planning process. I had learn about pricing, budgets, timelines, pre-wedding events, and so much more. It was hard. Really, really hard...
I don't want you to struggle the way I did, so I've created a course that will guide you through the entire process.
An online training course designed to give you an in-depth education on all of the steps a wedding planner goes through during the planning process. We start by defining the role and specific responsibilities of a wedding planner, then I'll coach you on how to actually prep and plan a wedding.
You'll learn the differences between planners, coordinators, stylists, venue coordinators and designers. Then you'll learn the actual skills, such as how to customize checklists, create budgets, build timelines, manage guest lists and develop seating plans. I also get into client and vendor relationships and boundaries, emergency management, permits, bad weather planing and so much more.

Becoming a wedding planner changed my life. I have the freedom, financial stability, supportive community, dream clients, and creative outlet that I've always longed for. I travel all winter and work on beautiful events all summer. It's the dream life!
I'm Brittany Frid, your new cheerleader and teacher, and I've got quite a story...
I was a 9-5 girl with a very respectable career in law. I helped a co-worker design her wedding back in 2010, but I had trouble finding the right vendors in our city for the look. I ended up creating a website that featured modern weddings and a vendor guide. It blew up and was a top Canadian wedding blog by 2012. I took it further and launched a planning and design company at the end of 2013 while I was still working at the firm. By 2015, I was making substantially more than my salary there, so I left the law firm, became self-employed, and have never looked back.
I've booked more than 500 events since then. My team has managed around $25 million in budgets. I consistently make 6 figures year after year. I have a huge team and we're all best friends. I've got a gorgeous office/studio, and I work with dream clients who give me total freedom. I run training bootcamps, mentor students, write for magazines, style tv sets, consult as a designer, and get to work on crazy projects at my leisure. I also spend my off-seasons travelling the world for months on end: last year I spent 6 months living in Bali, Indonesia. I'm living the dream, all because I'm a wedding planner.
You've been dreaming about doing this for a long time. That Type-A personality of yours is a HUGE asset as a wedding planner, but perfectionism also makes it hard to get started.
Most of us are just looking for a little guidance, insight, tools and experience to get over the hurdles you'll face along the way. I'm here, along with the industry's finest, to hold your hand and walk with you every step of the way.
You're sharp, stylish, organized, and you're ready to start. You just need the right plan to be a mega-success.
You're in the right place.
Take a deep breath, sign up for the course, and give yourself a high five for taking the first step to success.
