Are you ready to become a certified expert at creating wedding day timelines?


Become a Certified Timeline Genius™

As a wedding planner, you know that timelines are vitally important. You wouldn’t dream of just showing up to a wedding and winging it. You have to create a detailed, professional plan (a timeline) in order to manage all of the moving pieces and people on the wedding day.

Not only are timelines an essential planning tool for you, they’re also a reflection of your brand and your level of professionalism. When your clients and vendors see your timelines, they naturally form opinions about your expertise and quality of work.  

So the question is, are you ready to take your timelines to the highest level of professionalism? Do you want to discover and master the best practices and technologies for creating timelines?

If so, then you’re ready to become a Certified Timeline Genius™. When you earn this certification, you’ll know exactly how to create the sort of timelines that leave your clients and vendors amazed. And you’ll be creating these stellar timelines in less time and with greater ease than you probably ever thought possible!  

So make this investment in yourself. Take your skills to the next level, and earn the certification that will elevate your brand and set you apart in the marketplace.
