Solution Summary

In true project management, the scope of the project is different from the statement of work. Typically the scope is defined in the project charter and the statement of work is developed after the project charter has been created and approved. So I followed the same approach. I created a project charter and then transferred some of that information to the statement of work.

The objective of the project is to help the couple plan for an elegant wedding including preparing the budget, vision and theme determination, creation of checklists and timelines, selection, negotiation with, and booking of vendors, design of invitation and other stationery items, compiling of guest lists, mailing invitation and tracking, ceremony and reception preparation, direction and completion of necessary contracts, forms, and tests, on-site direction of rehearsal, ceremony and reception, and final payment and wrap-up with vendors.
