Wedding Training & Tools Recommendations

If you are looking to join the ranks of Wedding Professional you might like to take on some training either in your trade or in the profession before you start. Formal education isn't necessary in all areas of the wedding industry, however, at the SPWV we feel that when you are willing to invest in educating yourself and constantly striving to improve you are going to be the type of vendor that couples can really trust in.

Below you will find some of our recommended suppliers of education  and business tools in various areas within the wedding industry. We only recommend training that we have first had experience with or where we know the training provider well. Some links are affiliate links meaning some providers give us a referral fee if you decide to train with them this doesn't add to your costs and in some cases you are offered a discount by the provider for joining by referral.
