Letter from Our President

Welcome to the Association of Bridal Consultants (“ABC”), the largest group of wedding planners in the world.  What we do is simple.  We train wedding planners and then provide on-going career support.  We have been doing so for more than 60 years.

The core training program at ABC is the Professional Wedding Planner program (“PWP”). It is a self-paced, home study program that helps you build your wedding planning business. The ABC course is available on-line, or by hard copy or CD.

ABC has more than 4,000 members currently located in all 50 states and 31 countries. For on-going career support, we have ABC State Managers located in 34 states who arrange regular educational speakers and member networking meetings.

In addition, our ABC Director of Education provides seminars and webinars during the first-half of each year, and then we turn our focus to the ABC Annual Conference held every November. You can also call the ABC main office at 860-355-7000 anytime with your questions.  The ABC “live” call center is another great benefit of ABC membership.

You can learn a lot at ABC and we invite you to become a member.  To be successful, you have to keep learning.  We look forward to helping you do so.
