The mission of the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners is to educate wedding planners and to promote wedding planning practices of the highest quality to ensure that client expectations are surpassed. To become a member of AACWP, one must have completed the AACWP wedding planner training course or another approved education course and submit an application. Once approved, AACWP requires members to continue their education every year through our meetings and other education opportunities, pay yearly dues, and abide by a code of ethics.

 

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

  • 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. 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.

 

As a committed group of professionals and friends within the industry, the membership of AACWP strives to create a welcoming community where all members feel comfortable sharing and learning from one another, and of course having fun together! There are so many benefits to becoming a member, especially if your business is relatively new or if you are new to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and even if you are a member from afar.
