WPIC first offered the Ecological Wedding Planner and Coordinator Certification course in 2008. We have brought it back and completely revamped it!
Sustainable Weddings and Best Practices
As our society becomes more environmentally conscious, sustainable wedding planning is gaining popularity. It offers couples an opportunity to celebrate their love without compromising the health of our planet. By making conscious choices in various aspects of wedding planning, including attire, decor, and food, couples can create beautiful and unforgettable wedding experiences while promoting sustainability. Let us embrace this movement and continue to find ways to celebrate love in harmony with our environment.
