I enjoyed planning my own wedding so much that I decided to go into business as a wedding planner. I learned so much from BOLC’s Diploma and couldn’t be prouder of what I’ve managed to accomplish since.
Studying with BOLC has made me even more excited and determined to get set up as a wedding planner as soon as possible. I’m having a blast with the course and can’t wait to put it all to use!
