National Wedding Council Announces Launch of Wedding Certified Program to Help Raise Standards in Wedding Marketplace

The National Wedding Council has recently announced the launch of their Wedding Certified Program, to help bring more professionalism, higher standards and better business practices to the wedding market. The early response to the program has been very enthusiastic.


Rye, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2014 -- There are few things that can be as frantic as the months leading up to a wedding. Now, thanks to the National Wedding Council, choosing what wedding services and businesses to hire, has become easier than ever. The council recently announced the launch of their Wedding Certified program, designed to both protect couples planning a wedding, as well as promote hard working and honest wedding vendors to the next level. Met with immediate positive feedback this is clearly a program whose time has come.

“We are excited to offer an exclusive opportunity for the industry's top wedding vendors to achieve certification and independent verification of their excellence,” commented Spencer Potter, the Council's Executive Director. “Our proprietary certification process is designed to protect couples from unprofessional or fly-by-night wedding vendors. The goal is to create trust and transparency in the wedding industry, something that's a win/win all around.”

According to the council, Wedding Certified is the first wedding industry certification of its kind to offer completely independent review and certification to top wedding professionals. Wedding vendors are pre-screened by the council and awarded Certified Wedding Vendor status if approved. Exclusive benefits include access to the private online membership lounge with certification badges and wedding certification tools. The certification is expected to not only act as a security measure for wedding shoppers, but also as a way to help high quality members of the wedding marketplace create enhanced trust with their clients based on their independent verification.

The National Wedding Council's Wedding Certified program is completely unique. By becoming certified early, it's very likely to provide a competitive advantage to businesses in the wedding marketplace, as the council expects the number of certified businesses to skyrocket quickly.

John Marino, from Springfield, Massachusetts, recently remarked, “I have a catering business that services weddings almost exclusively. Becoming certified in the Wedding Certified program has helped us stand out with our prospective clients and has created more trust in our ability to deliver. We have nothing to hide and as a result of our certification, business has remarkably improved. This is a certification that can benefit wedding businesses big and small.”
