Want to be a wedding planner?

Welcome to Day of U.


After two seasons as a wedding planner, I’ve received tons of e-mails, calls, and texts from friends, bridesmaids, and brides(!) asking to share how I got started, and how they could break into the business. While being a wedding planner and owning my own business is my (cliche, millennial) “Dream Job,” my passion is, and always has been, coaching. Mentoring women to achieve their highest potential (whether in dance or business) makes me the happiest.

I want to share everything I know with you.

Day of U offers three custom coaching programs based on your answer to this question: What are you career goals?
