The 2016 wedding season is over and we are looking ahead to 2017! We already have some amazing couples on the calendar next year and now we are looking to build the right team to help us create beautiful, stress-free wedding day experiences for them.
For the first time, Wedding Wise is hiring an intern for the 2017 wedding season! I am beyond thrilled to be presenting this opportunity since I get so many inquiries over the course of a year from ladies (and gents!) who are eager to learn more about wedding planning.
What will you get out of our internship?
Assist lead wedding planner at rehearsals and weddings
Gain experience with how a wedding planning business is run behind-the-scenes, from helping with social media and blog posts to styled shoot assistance and more!
Learn how to network with wedding vendors and attend networking events with Wedding Wise
Occasionally attend client or vendor meetings and site visits
Get exposure to the workflow of a wedding planner and must-have planning tools
College credit (if applicable)
Are you a good fit for the Wedding Wise team?
We are looking for an intern who:
Can’t get enough of weddings, bridal gowns, color palettes, classic designs, delicious food, unique details and beautiful ceremonies!
Is self-admittedly a little Type A and thrives on organization and “all the details.”
Believes in being a team player and that no task is too small or large for you to tackle with grace and vigor.
Is tech/social media savvy and enjoys geeking out over learning/optimizing new programs (especially tech that helps you stay organized!)
Has great ideas and instincts and isn’t afraid to share them.
Has looked through our website and social media channels and feels drawn to our weddings and our brand.
Is eager to learn about ALL aspects of being a wedding planner.
Ok, here’s the nitty gritty.
You must be:
- Located in the Seattle area with reliable transportation
Able to lift up to 25 lbs
Able to be on your feet for 8+ hours on wedding days
Able to commit to internship from mid-January through October
Have a high school education or equivalent
Available to work on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during the summer (exact dates to be determined as far in advance as possible)
Able to work 5 hours per week during the off-season and 10-15 hours per week during the wedding season. The work schedule is very flexible. Except for wedding days and the occasional in-person meeting, you can do most of your work from home, whenever is convenient for you!
All of this sound good to you? We can’t wait to hear from you!
How to Apply
Please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2016!
A cover letter containing why we should select you as our intern and what you want to learn from the experience (if you are looking for college credit, please mention that)
An inspiration board curated by you with a ~150-word write up describing the type of wedding or couple it represents (can be a pinterest board link, PDF, photoshop collage, etc. Submit it in a format that you are comfortable with and proud of!)

After December 31, we will interview top candidates in the hope of selecting an intern who will start by the end of January.
