  • Hello,
    I would like some advice on how to get started with event planning. I love throwing parties and giving my advice on party tips and putting together centerpieces and favors for different events. But I think my greatest love would have to be wanting to become a Wedding Planner. Any advice on how to get started. I am also a member of Elite Events. Thank you very much for any suggestions you might have.
