How does the application process work?
We assess each membership application individually. Members are approved before they are able to purchase a membership.
How long is the Waitlist?
The short answer is, it changes.
What are you looking for in a member application?
Firstly, we will assess to ensure that your business is legitimate and wedding related. We do not assess memberships based on experience, aesthetics, age, race, gender, ability or success. We are not exclusionary or stuck in high school.
What if I want to cancel my application?
You can cancel your membership or waitlist application at any time by notifying us directly at email@example.com
I'm studying in my field of expertise. Can I join?
Yes! We have many students and professionals in the process of setting up their businesses who join us. It's actually a great time to join, because you'll be starting off on the right foot with a supportive community and a plethora of resources to kick start your business.
Fees & Payment
Which payment gateway do you use?
We use Stripe as our payment gateway, a very safe and secure platform that does not share your payment details with us or anyone else.
How can I receive a receipt?
Every time you make a payment, you will have a receipt sent to the email address associated with your account. If you did not receive your receipt after payment, please check your Spam or Promotions folders.
How do I renew my membership?
Your membership subscription is auto-renewed until you decide to cancel it. If you chose the monthly instalments, your payments will be deducted from your nominated credit or debit card every month until cancelled (minimum 10 months).

I have another question

What is your refund policy?
If you decide to cancel your membership, the membership fee is non-refundable. If we cancel your membership for any of the reasons outlined in the "Member Conduct" section of this page, we reserve the right to offer a partial or full refund at our discretion.
Does my membership expire at the end of the financial year?
No - we do not do pro-rata memberships. Annual Memberships are valid for 12 months from the date of joining, while Monthly Memberships continue for 10 months from the date of joining, with a monthly renewal after that date.
Why does the monthly membership have a minimum of 10 months?
We want to ensure that anyone joining your community is doing so for the right reasons. We don't want someone to join for a month just to get a discount on a product or event. So, we ask new members to commit to at least 10 months of membership to ensure we only have members who are genuinely interested in being a part of the community.
I have already been a member for over 10 months and am switching to the monthly plan. Do I have to commit to another 10 month minimum?
No. If you have already been a member of The Wedding Society (or The Celebrant Society) for at least 10 months, you do not need to commit to a further 10 months when switching to the monthly payment option.
Does my conduct affect my membership?
Absolutely. We value kindness, encouragement, support and celebration of diversity. If we feel that any of these values is not shared by a member or members, we will address it with them to reach an outcome that is best for the community.
What do I do if I am uncomfortable with another member's conduct?
We ask that all members approach us directly if they are uncomfortable with the conduct of another member, either online or in person. We will do absolutely everything in our power to ensure that all members' concerns are respected and addressed appropriately & discreetly.
What is expected of me as a member?
We have a very strong ethos that has built and sustained our great community reputation. Our community expects all existing and new members to protect and uphold that reputation.
