Gilded Lily Events is seeking an intern for our summer and fall wedding season!  I started my wedding design and planning business in 2010 (-ish) and I have learned through experience and hard work.  I would love to give someone the opportunity to have on-the-job training and share the knowledge that I have gained through my years as a creative business owner.  I know how difficult it can be to break into this industry. Not to mention, this would be a good opportunity to see if this is something you would actually like to pursue since it is not always as glamorous as Instagram makes it out to be!

The hours for this internship will be one to two days a week for 3-4 hours and weekend event days from July through October.  There may also be a need for hours outside of our regularly scheduled time if the project allows.  This is an unpaid internship, but college credit will be provided if applicable.

Role and Responsibilities (to name a few)

  • creating inspiration boards
  • wedding day details production
  • researching vendors
  • event execution shadowing
  • dreaming up and writing blog posts
  • creative community outreach
  • budget creation
  • editorial shoot “know how” and research

    Hi! I want to get into wedding and event planning but I graduated college many years ago! Lol I currently work full time in Neptune, I want to do this on the side. Do you have any other openings?

    • Hi Natalie, thank you for following Gilded Lily Events! And I get it- I started this “on the side” when I was working full time too. I wish I had an opening for someone like you but unfortunately I need help during my office hours during wedding season. If I do have a need in the future, this is where I’ll post it! Best of luck in pursuing this career.
