Scope – Project Scope Management includes the processes required to ensure that the project includes all the work required to complete the project successfully. (PMBOK 103) In the first place, the wedding planner must determine and evaluate the specific needs and requirements of the stakeholders, which include the bride and groom, plus those of interested parties, such as parents who may be determining the budget.

The wedding planner must ensure that each individual is in agreement and once the requirements are established the scope can be defined. A scope statement must be developed in order for the project to stay on track and so that the project objectives will be met.
