January 2019:

“My IIW membership was the best thing I have done for my wedding business. The marketing help alone that I have received from the IIW over the past year has brought about a night and day transformation in the number of inquiries I’ve received and the number of weddings I booked. This has been my best year ever for revenue.  I’m so grateful to have received your mentoring, and to have access to the marketing channels you have made possible for my business at the group discount rates the IIW makes possible”. (I am including the “publicity photo you suggested I have taken for my website, if I don’t say so myself, it turned out great and I definitely see what you’re saying about how it enhances my professional image and credibility!)” ~ Theresa LaFontre, Wedding & Event Planner, Montreal

New for 2019
Become a Member and Apply for the Trust Seal

In 2019 we have launched a new component of IIW membership – the IIW Trust Seal.

Institute of Weddings Trust Seal

In today’s competitive world, “trust seals” are being seen in more and more industries, as a way for a business to differentiate itself from its competition.  Consumers today are increasingly cautious about who they can trust, and displaying a validated 3rd party trust seal issued by a recognized objective third party organization increases customer confidence, conveys legitimacy, and provides your business with a competitive edge in your market.   The IIW trust seal shows your prospective clients that you are trusted and endorsed by The Institute of Weddings.

As part of the application process, we will validate your business, verify your reputation, and give you the opportunity to correct any areas of concern available on the public record.  Only then will we issue the Trust Seal.  Displaying your Trust Seal on your website, promotional materials, advertisements and in your place of business helps give potential clients the assurance that you are the right choice for their wedding.
