The Certified Wedding Planner Society (formerly The Bridal Society) is the largest wedding planner membership and the leading certification program in the world. The founder and CEO, Laurie Hartwell, created this wedding planner lifestyle membership with the intention of supporting successful wedding planners and elevating new ones. The Wedding Planner Certification Program is taught by Laurie Hartwell and Krisy Thomas, two award-winning wedding planners with a combined 40 years of experience in the wedding industry. Laurie and Krisy care very deeply for every member of the society. Community over competition is the philosophy of this organization, where we believe that successful wedding planners lift each other up rather than tear each other down. Raising the standards in the wedding industry among communities across the globe is the number one goal of the Certified Wedding Planner Society.
