What comes to mind when you think of wedding planning? For most people, it’s one word: stressful. Budgets. Guest Lists. Traditions. Floorplans. Weather Contingency Plans. Vendors. Timelines. Did your stress levels just rise thinking of some of the many things you have to consider for this “big day”? You’re not alone. In a recent study, 96% of 500 recently engaged couples reported wedding planning to be stressful and half of those people used the word “very” or “extremely” to describe it.

This course is here to guide you through the maze of wedding planning so you can spend more time focusing on the partnership than on the plans. Not sure how to get from A to B but don’t have the budget for a wedding planner? This course is specifically designed to ensure you cover all your bases, feel confident, and stay true to you + your partner’s values and priorities.

Amy Shack Egan, your wedding planning expert, starts with step one and takes you all the way to the wedding day. The course will set you up for success, provide interactive quizzes to illuminate priorities for you and your partner, and give you tips and tricks along the way. Wedding planning doesn’t have to be stressful - it can be fun! This course is designed to keep it fun and productive so you two can arrive on the wedding day stronger than ever.
