The certification course was first offered in 1954 as part of the National Bridal Service, America’s first national association of bridal consultants and wedding related businesses. In 1968, the course was adapted to the training of wedding planners and coordinators under the name Weddings Beautiful Worldwide. Since then, wedding planners worldwide have attained the title Certified Wedding Specialist by completing the course. Students have gained the know-how and received the support they need to become successful business owners.
