Project Proposal: Initiating and PlanningBrief Summary
A wedding is one of the most significant and valuable events in the life of an individual. The wedding couples particularly aspire to make the day memorable forever. Most of the individuals hold a restricted budget to be spent on the wedding ceremony, but their expectations are high to make the event memorable for a long time. This project proposal is specific to the particular event for providing appropriate support to the couple to make their wedding day memorable. The project will ensure that there is proper arrangement for the event, and all the tasks are performed appropriately and are in line with the allocated budget (McKenna & Baume, 2015). The proposal will develop a plan for the wedding using a project management application.Three Goals and Three Objectives of the Project
The goals of the wedding project include;
- To complete containing all the activities as per the requirements of the couple.
- To complete within the constraint of time, quality, and money.

The objectives of the project include;
- To utilize all the allocated resources properly for ensuring the sequential execution of the activities.
- To allocate roles and responsibilities to all the team members to avoid disagreement.
- To develop and implement proper risk management (Guo, Yiu & Gonzalez, 2015).
Key Customers and Two Stakeholders of the Project
The key customers are the wedding couple; they will provide all the information expecting from the project to the project team. Moreover, they will be required to take an active part in the development of project scope, i.e., information about time, budget, quality, etc. (McKenna & Baume, 2015). At the time of project completion, the wedding couple will accept it.
The first key stakeholder of the project will be the families of the couple. They are the people who keep much interest in the event to make the wedding day of their relatives amazing. They also want to keep the event free of disruption to enjoy wholeheartedly. The second stakeholder will be the project team members. They will not only take an active part in the planning process but also carry out all the project activities efficiently. The proper communication, coordination, and technical expertise of the team members will add value to the project, ensuring the successful completion (Dowsett, Green, Sexton, & Harty, 2019).
