have just finished reading your wonderful Become a Wedding Planner book.
The information was exactly what I was looking for to start up my own wedding
planning business. I have helped family members and friends plan weddings
before and was wondering how I could turn this in to a paid career as a wedding planner. The
information on getting clients, dealing with vendors and how much to charge
for my services was really helpful, and the worksheets like the timeline
schedule and budget sheet will be very useful. I can't wait to get started!"
wedding planner book! I bought it on the weekend and didn't think
I would get much for such a low cost but I was delighted. I will definitely
recommend your Wedding Planner guidebook to any of my friends who want
to get into wedding planning."
"I wanted to thank you
for your book about becoming a Wedding Planner, which I received on my computer in one minute.
The book has given me so much insight and information towards my new career as a wedding planner.
I am very happy and would
absolutely recomend your products to anyone looking for a new career."
"Thank you so much for this
excellent guide! I had made the decision to set up business as a Wedding Planner when
I came across your guide and decided that even if you could give me just a
few tips it would be worth the price. I had only "speed read" the first 50 pages (of over 200!)
when I knew I had made a purchase which would be worth it's weight in gold! Even though I live in
England and some of the advice is not applicable here there is more than enough which is applicable
for me to make more than my money back with my first assignment."
"I recently purchased the FabJob Guide to Become a Wedding Planner. Like many people, I was
skeptical of paying money for any sort of "how-to" guide, especially off the internet.
I assumed that by helping out with several weddings, I knew most of what I needed to get
started, and I'd learn the rest along the way. When I stumbled across the FabJob website,
I was intrigued, and browsed the table of contents for the Wedding Planner guide. I realized
there was a lot I needed to learn BEFORE getting started. After taking the time to look in
several bookstores I realized there was nothing remotely similar to what the FabJob guide covered.
The other books were all aimed at brides, and a professional planner has to know more than that
(otherwise why would a bride need a planner if a book would do?). I took the plunge, ordered
on-line, and did not regret it! Don't waste your time or money looking elsewhere. This guide covers things you didn't even know you needed to learn about, it will pay for itself in confidence alone!"

"I noticed your web site for How to Become a Wedding Planner some time ago, but dismissed it as yet another
wedding planner guide for brides. Well, this year after finally launching my own wedding planning
company, I decided to see what your wedding planner book entailed. What a wonderful surprise! The wedding planner guide is informative, detailed
and jam-packed with tips for the aspiring wedding planner! (I was so
impressed that I ordered two more unrelated guides for friends.) Specifically,
your wedding registration form helped me with the revision of a form I
had created for clients, I picked up some great marketing ideas too. I would encourage anyone considering the purchase of this wedding planner
guide to go ahead and order... right NOW!"

The guide was well written and gives step-by-step instructions on being a successful wedding planner. Thank you so much!"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been searching for 8
years for a book on how to become a wedding planner, and I have
finally found one! This book answered all of my questions- from

what books to read and supplies to buy, how to network and break
into the field of wedding planning, and where to look for jobs. I
now feel a lot more confident that I have the tools to learn the
wedding planning business and can make my dream come true!"
"The Wedding Planner Guide is awesome!!! I thought I knew everything about planning weddings, but it helped me be more organized then ever before.
