The mission of the AACWP is to educate wedding planners and to promote wedding planning practices of the highest quality to ensure that client expectations are surpassed.


As members of AACWP, our planners commit to the following pledges:

  • Commit to personal conduct, professional behaviors and business practices that are ethical and legal.
  • Be truthful in all advertising.
  • Be honest with prospective clients about previous wedding experiences. Also, be accurate and document the expected services and fees to be rendered in a written agreement.
  • Commit to continuing education and sharing of ideas among AACWP members.
  • Avoid making false statements about other AACWP members or other wedding professionals.
  • Decline income from vendors that would influence vendor recommendations to clients. Instead, all endorsements will be based on the best interest of the client.
  • Work in a respectful manner with other wedding professionals, while providing leadership to the wedding team and advocacy for the client.
