If you have experience with project planning in a professional sense at your employment then you should treat the planning of your wedding no different. Wedding Planning is a must for small or big weddings – perhaps it’s more critical to plan out your wedding for the large weddings for everything to run smoothly on the day.
A Big or Small Wedding?
First of all, you should have a general number of guests you would like to invite. This will determine everything else you do in your wedding planning. Do you want a small cozy wedding or a large wedding gathering? Is it what you want or what your parents or in-laws want? Is it within your budget? Once you answer these questions your wedding planning has now been kick started.
In a project situation, it is important to delegate tasks and so in your wedding planning you need to determine who will be responsible for certain aspects of your wedding. For example you may want to designate responsibility of handling of catering for yourself while delegating the responsibility of the wedding music or entertainment to your partner.
A commercial project always has a profit and loss statement and a budget. A wedding plan profits when you succeed and you lose when everything falls apart – you don’t want the latter to happen. One of the more important aspects of wedding planning is your wedding budget. You should have a general number in your head of how much you want to spend on your wedding and from that starting number you can allocate money to the ‘sub-projects’ of your wedding such as the catering, the reception hall, etc. Watch carefully how you spend your wedding budget and always keep a look out for ways to save money on weddings.
