Project chosen: Wedding Planner
This industry always fascinated me and being I work in this industry this project will only help my continued growth as an up and coming wedding planner.
According to the Wedding Planners Institute of America, statistics has found that the American wedding industry involves $6 billion per year. Wedding planning professionals are part of this industry. The theories, methods, and concepts developed by project management and project managers can usefully be applied to the wedding planning business. In fact, skills identical to those used in project management are essential to successful wedding planning. Without first-rate management skills, there is a grave risk that “the wedding plans will become disorganized and ineffectively run. In combination with the widespread boom in the wedding business in general, this need for expertise in wedding planning has given rise to the advent of professional wedding planners.
Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.(PMBOK 6) Wedding planners, just like all project managers, typically perform the following steps in order to manage a project:
• Identify requirements
• Address the various needs, concerns, and expectations of the stakeholders as the project is planned and carried out
• Balance the competing project constraints including: o Scope o Quality o Schedule o Budget o Resources o Risk
Variations in individual projects will influence the specific constraints that the project manager needs to focus upon. Each wedding differs in the degree of emphasis it places on the various constraints. Some will place more emphasis on the budget, for example, than others will. However, the constraints are all very closely linked, and the relationship between them means that if one of the factors…...

Brief Wedding Service 10. Wedding Sermons 11. Recessional 12. Premarital Conferences Introduction Jesus must have loved weddings. His first miracle took place at one. Some of his analogies regarding his relationship to the church are described in wedding terms. Paul likewise emphasizes the importance of marriage when he compares it to Christ’s relationship to the church. And in Revelation John explains Christ’s marriage relationship with the church as eternal. It is no wonder that Christians place high importance on weddings. Here are some ideas that might help as you perform these ceremonies on a regular basis. Philosophy You need to have a clear and defined philosophy about performing weddings. Since the function is not described or prescribed in Scripture, some ministers take the position that performing weddings is not strictly a “ministry” function. They see their role as nothing more than an agent of the state, much like a justice of the peace, in this regard. Thus they will perform weddings for just about anyone, member or non-member, Christian or unchurched. For some, this can become a significant source of extra income. Other ministers believe very strongly that......

...Ashley M. James Exploratory Essay Wedding Traditions ENG 115, Section 10 Dr. Brandy T. Wilson April 28, 2010 There are many wedding traditions throughout history for many types of religions and reasons, but no matter what religious belief you may have, the concept of uniting together in marriage is universal. However, the way in which the ceremony is performed may be different. If you are the bride and groom, you will want to be educated with the basic traditions, or customs of your religion. If you are a guest, you will want to be educated just as efficiently as the bride and groom, so you will be able to appreciate the wedding. Although most of today’s society does not know or remember what the reasons behind them are or what they mean. But just looking them up and reading up on them won’t help you be prepared for that big day. Every wedding contains the same basic traditions; such as the Bride and the Groom, the wedding party, a ring bearer, flower girl, the honeymoon, reception, the rings and gifts. What is the symbolic meaning for the Wedding Party and why has it followed us through history? It seems in these days, people getting married want the ‘party’ on both sides to make sure each person who is important to the bride and groom, has a position in the ceremony. Other’s want it as a fashion statement, to show the many colors of the wedding theme. There are a select few who choose a large group for low cost weddings, when the ceremony is on a tight budget to......

...Bristol Palin has canceled her wedding to Dakota Meyer. In a Facebook post on Monday, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin revealed that her oldest daughter has canceled her scheduled May 23 wedding to the war hero. After thanking supporters of the couple, Palin wrote that the wedding for Bristol and Dakota “will not be held.” Instead, a family barbecue will take place in Kentucky that day to “celebrate life in general.” Mama Palin also included a message from her daughter, who slammed news reports that Dakota could possibly still be married to his first wife Cassandra Wain. “Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago,” Bristol revealed. Still, the timing for the wedding cancellation comes just days after Radar Online posted a marriage certificate that revealed Meyer was married to a Michigan woman as a teen. The official document shows Meyer and Cassandra Wain were married in Campbellsville, Kentucky, on May 20, 2008. It was unclear if and when they officially divorced because information about the marriage remains sealed. Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer became engaged in March after the war veteran popped the question at a Rascal Flatts concert. Rascal Flatts singer Gary Le Vox introduced Meyer on stage and thanked him for his service before dedicating the song “Bless the Broken Road” to the couple. Midway through the song, LeVox paused to announce that Meyer proposed to Palin......

...I had the chance to attend a Catholic wedding at St. Michaels Catholic church. I had never been to a wedding before.I was very anxious to experience this ceremony.Wedding always look so beautiful and full of love in the movies.On my way to the church,i thought to myself "It would be interesting if an ex boyfriend would come and stop the ceremony,just to make it even more interesting." When I arrived at the church, I quickly found a seat in the back so I could see the bride coming in before everyone else. I hadn't been in a church in a very long time and I didn't remember what it was like.The sanctuary was nothing like what I was imagined it to be. It was dark and everyone was extremely quiet. It reminded me of the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding.It was a dark church with a lot of loud family members.A lot of the women were wearing black,not because they were mourning the marriage,but because dominican women do everything to look thiner for special events.If it was not for the obvious wedding decorations and the loud couples you would think it was a ceremony for the dead. When the wedding started, a woman began playing the organ. The bride walked down the aisle to the usual with her divorced parents.The tradition is usually for the father of the bride to walk a bride down the aisle,but like every other self centered hispanic mother, she insisted that she be included.The ceremony was two hours long,but it felt like forever. My favorite part was when the......
