You're The Bride is seeking a motivated, reliable and detailed individual for 2015 Fall-Winter internship. Must be able to stand for long periods of time and have a computer as assignments will be e-mailed to you. Previous event planning experience is a plus but not necessary. Candidates must be able to take direction but also be able to think quickly on their feet as situations may arise that need to be solved with ease.

This is an UNPAID position; however, an intern who successfully completes the internship may be hired on a part-time basis to assist at future events. You will receive real experience in the world of wedding planning and this alone is very valuable if you are looking to break into the industry after college.
This internship may involve pre-event preparation, cold calling using bridal lead lists, researching ideas and writing posts for the YTB blog, assembling favors/invitations, assisting in wedding ceremony rehearsal, on-site coordination/set-up for ceremony and reception. Other projects as needed including planning a “Mock” Wedding that must be presented for a grade. Most of your assignments would be emailed to you and completed at your location by the deadline given so you are able to work a part-time job. You are not required to come into an office setting daily but we will have meetings as needed.
Must be available on some weekends as needed. May be required to attend some weekday and weeknight functions to include networking events, bride consults and vendor meetings, etc. We can be flexible with the right candidate depending on your schedule. This internship is October - March 2016. A shorter internship may be available based on your needs for school. Please specify in your cover letter your available start and end dates. Please indicate in your cover letter what city you reside in when you are home on summer break as we desire candidates whom are under 30 minutes from Farmington. If you can’t handle long hours on wedding days (typically 12 hours plus), honor a contractual commitment or are not a student that can receive college credit please do NOT apply.
