Wedding Vendor Contract Mistakes

content for this post provided byRobbin Montero of A Dream Wedding

The biggest mistake couples make in hiring wedding vendors is to assume verbal agreements are good enough. Get everything in writing and review all contracts carefully before signing to make sure everything discussed is covered. If questions arise or memory fails at a later date, only a written contract will hold water. Basic contract information includes: wedding date, vendor arrival time, length of performance, actual cost, potential overtime cost, refund policy, and a list of everything included with each vendor’s contract. Contracts don’t have to be written in complicated legal language. A business letter is usually sufficient and, in the case of flowers and the cake, a detailed sales receipt often works. Even if a good friend is supplying your cake or flowers, put it in writing to avoid a misunderstanding. “Get it in writing”—wise words for brides, indeed.
