This book is proposed to fill a gap in the events management literature. Each chapter would include: 1) an organized discussion of theory and practice, 2) a Management in Action case study; 3) a Research Roundtable text; 4) a Weddings around the World cultural discussion; and 5) worksheets, checklists and additional resources. * The first textbook on wedding consulting, with pedagogical features like introduction of theory, illustration through case studies, worksheets, checklists * Places wedding planning and management into a larger events management context * Provides practical resources and best practices for wedding consulting
