Wedding Planning and Management

Are you getting married? Are you looking for some inspiration or guidance?

Routledge is excited to announce a new edition of the comprehensive book Wedding Planning and Management: Consultancy for Diverse Clients.

With over 40 years of combined experience in the wedding planning industry, authors Maggie Daniels and Carrie Loveless have now updated their comprehensive guide to wedding planning. The second edition of Wedding Planning and Management: Consultancy for Diverse Clients, published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis in December 2013, is a broad introduction to the business of weddings through the lens of event management.

Whether you are a professional event planner or planning your own wedding, Wedding Planning and Management thoroughly explores the fundamentals of weddings, including historical and cultural foundations, practice, and the business of wedding planning. An emphasis on diversity and traditions from cultures around the globe are integrated throughout with over 80 international case studies that inspire and set standards for best practice.

Since the first edition, there have been many changes in the business of weddings and this second edition has been updated to reflect recent issues and trends in areas such as family dynamics, media influences, impacts of technology, legislation and the global economy as well as vendor relations and recent research and statistics.

Additionally, the second edition includes a companion website with PowerPoint slides, and case study solutions as well as over 150 beautiful color images by top wedding photojournalist Rodney Bailey. It also includes a number of handy end-of-chapter checklists to consult.
