Event management is the utilization of venture administration for the creation and management of huge scale occasions, for example, celebrations, gatherings, services, formal gatherings, shows, or traditions and weddings. It includes examining the brand, recognizing the intended interest group, concocting the occasion idea, arranging the logistics, and planning the specialized perspectives before really dispatching the event.
The procedure of arranging and coordinating the occasion is generally alluded to as event planning and can incorporate planning, booking, site choice, gaining fundamental grants, organizing transportation and stopping, masterminding speakers or performers, orchestrating stylistic layout, occasion security, providing food and crisis plans (Ayers, Stasko 1995).
The project is a website that is based on wedding planning. The website goes by the name of a Wedding planner. The purpose of the website is to help in the event management of the wedding. Usually event management is carried out by some small business units where the person has to be present personally to discuss with them and negotiate on various aspects of wedding planning. In this project, I use the best web creation tools for online wedding planner management. This project can be utilized by any wedding planner business unit for promoting their brand and sales (Bronner, de Hoog 2010).
Website creation is an art and requires creativity and good imaginary skills apart from technical skills. The website design must comply with the standards of the website designing and must also reflect uniqueness in terms of design templates used, colors of text, text sizing, screen utilization, and navigations.
Millions of websites are present over the world wide web. But only some make it to the front page of Google or any other search engine. It is because of its unique content, unique styles, and proper utilization of web tools that rank the website among the top ones. Thus a website designer must always aim to design a website to be ranked among the best websites and also must adhere to customer requirements.
Some steps for creating a website are as follow:
Gather the customer requirements upon which the website is to be built. It is the aim or purpose of designing the website.
Make a rough design plan on a paper and make a rough storyboard diagram of the design something as shown in figure below.
In today’s scenario, people are leading very busy lives. In order to take care of the financial needs of the family, an individual is working round the clock. For any individual wedding is a very special occasion where the person that is marrying is about to experience a feeling that lasts for a lifetime. Everyone wants to make it special and beautiful. Earlier a couple looking for a beautiful wedding had to hire a wedding planner so that all the nitty-gritty of the wedding could be handled well. But in hiring the wedding planner in person the couple had to frequently visit the offices of the wedding planners so as decide what they want. This process used to be very stressful as couples had to take time out from their otherwise busy schedule and reach the office of the wedding planner (Robert,2015). Now with the advent of wedding planning websites, all these stresses are a thing of the past. Wedding websites are now offering a range of services for couples that are about to get married. A basic wedding planning website must have services such as Venues for weddings, Food that would be served during a wedding, the decorations and themes for the wedding, and entertainment that will be provided for the guests (Byrne, 1999 ).
Any website should include at least the following pages (SBMResoureces,2014)
Creativity in a website can be displayed by utilizing proper colours, tools, animations, text styles, image effects, responsive galleries, and responsive web pages, and customized platform independent website with mobile friendly and browser friendly capabilities.
A website should be user-friendly and be easily navigated. It should not be complex. The website should support the latest technology tools and must be compatible with many devices(Matt 2013).
The website of wedding planner includes the following features:
An ample look at the home page is as follows:
The navigation buttons are
Home, wedding, gallery, and contact
The project is the creation of a website. Websites are used for the promotion and branding of any business. This project included creative website design for a wedding planner. Evaluation of the wedding planner website on the basis of marking criteria displays that the website designed contains user creativity and innovations of embedding new technological tools for making the website.
The content that has been written on the website is using very simple English for a better understanding of the customers. It is highly imperative that a website contains content that is easily readable and understandable. The user-friendly content of the website will make sure that the visiting customer completely understands the what the website is offering the customers in totality.
The navigation menu of the website is designed very aesthetically along with simplicity so the any visitor visiting the website does not face any problem in navigating from one page to another. The layout of the website has also been designed keeping in mind the requirements that usually customers have pertaining to a wedding planning website. The website has been structured in such a way that the look and feel of the website are enhanced.
Other new tools of navigation have been incorporated into the website. An HTML5 based button, Search box, and links have been integrated into the website. Thus proper utilization of navigational tools and technology has been displayed.
Various visual effects have been added to the website to give a more surreal experience to the customers. Various responsive galleries have been implemented for the purpose of viewing photographs. The effects are added through new Java script libraries and Java Query plugins. These effects are compatible even on mobile devices and are supported by various kinds of browsers available. Usually, many websites lack such customization features. Thus on the basis of visual design, the designed website stands up to the mark.
Various functionality like HTML pages, Frames, images, CSS, etc. has been incorporated into the website. This enhances the looks and functionality of the website. The gallery of the images lacks the functionality of a slide show with left and right navigation arrows of images. This is reducing the overall gallery look and feel.
In terms of interactivity, the website gives a responsive interaction to any user or visitor. The website supports basic pages which are mandatory for the website. The overall experience of the website is sure to be a happy endeavor for any user.
