Managing and organizing an event is a delightful yet challenging experience because one’s leadership capabilities and artistic skills are put to the test and not to mention the stress that go with it. Unlike wedding events in the past which were held in a simple and less elaborate way, wedding celebrations today have become status symbol used to measure the financial status of the couples to be wed and as well as the families of both parties. Be it simple or grand, weddings need meticulous planning and preparation that run as short as a week’s notice to as long as six months and even a year. With shorter preparation time, more careful planning with the aid of a number of individuals working as a group is needed.

Setting your goals will surely guide you to account developments and achievements and other tasks that need to be accomplished at a given time.
