DescriptionWe are looking for an intern who is interested in gaining experience & clientele in planning a wedding rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and wedding ceremony. The bride/groom requesting an intern is from out of town. This will be a year and a half long unpaid internship, with the possibility for hire by other couples seeking a wedding planner after completion of the wedding in June 2017. There will also be the possibility of using the bride/groom as future references. This position is based in Louisville, KY and has a flexible schedule.
ResponsibilitiesA wedding planner is a valuable asset in the planning and execution phases of their couples special events. Wedding planners may work alone or with the help of an assistant or staff. Job responsibilities vary by client and contracted assignment.
Wedding planners are responsible for a myriad of tasks including interviewing and hiring vendors, selecting and ordering materials, negotiating rates, coordinating the sequence of events, following up with guests and vendors and producing full-scale events. A skilled wedding planner will help guide their clients through the planning process, lend experience and knowledge and work tirelessly on behalf of their customers; whereas a day-of-coordinator typically handles the logistics on the wedding day, and may attend the rehearsal or a planning session.
RequirementsMust be enrolled or graduated from an accredited college or university, and interested in gaining experience in wedding planning/coordination.
Previous work experience in the events industry OR majoring in Hospitality, Business, Public Relations, Marketing or Communications.
