Wedding Etiquette for Professionals

Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette for Professionals is a course on all things wedding etiquette. Whether you choose to take the program virtually online or in-person (when safety allows). The goal of our program is for participants to walk away with an understanding of both the standards and traditions of wedding etiquette, as well as an understanding of and confidence in how etiquette can help you build and strengthen your relationships with both clients and vendors. This course is perfect for wedding planners, consultants, event managers and vendors.

Online Program: We are pleased to now offer Wedding Etiquette for Professionals as a one-on-one online training option. After registering you will receive your materials and schedule one-on-one sessions with Lizzie Post.

In-person Program: When safety allows for in-person gatherings we host an annual in-person Wedding Etiquette for Professionals program in our hometown of Burlington, Vermont. Attendees fly in the day before the program and are treated to a day of food, instruction and discussion. The course begins with a full buffet breakfast, followed by a morning of instruction, a four-course luncheon, and an afternoon of instruction and then photos and certificates.
