Hello Puys,

Today I would like to share some info on Wedding Planning. Why it is one of the most important specialization in the field of Event Management and What are the major Key Responsibility Area's of a Wedding Planner.

No bride and groom would like to compromise on the arrangements of wedding during special day of their life. They want people to participate in their happiness and give blessings rather than cursing about arrangements.

A Wedding Planner can assist in selecting wedding theme, making food arrangements, looking after bride and groom outfit, etc. Following are some of the wedding arrangements which becomes important part of wedding planning:

Pre Wedding Arrangements :

• Wedding location
• Wedding shoes
• Wedding budget
• Makeup and hair style
• Booking caterer
• Allotment of work
• Taking follow up
• Food testing
• Examining wedding decoration and sound system

Post Wedding Arrangement :

• Arranging grand reception
• Final send-off of bride

As one can figure out that organizing a wedding is no easy task and there are crisis that surrounds a big Fat Indian Wedding. In such situations the expertise of a Event Manager/ Wedding Planner comes in handy as they are often been called as Crisis Managers.

Feel free to interact with us about more on Event Management Course and various other specializations that it offers.
