WHY SHOULD I USE THE WEDDING BUNDLE TEMPLATES?
For the Bride/Groom
You probably have a vision of what you want your wedding day to be. In order to make that vision a reality, you need to make sure that your vendors have a clear understanding as to what your expectations are. A contract is a great way to make sure that everyone is on the same page, and to ensure, say, that your photographer knows ahead of time that you want black and white photographs of the ceremony, that your DJ knows that you don’t want to hear the Chicken Dance, and that the florist knows to deliver the bouquets to your house and the boutonnieres to the church.
For the Vendor
A contract can protect you financially because it establishes payment terms. (Is there a downpayment? When is payment due?) and determines cancellation policies. (Do you still get paid if the couple decides to elope at the last minute?) It’s also a great opportunity for you to specify what your equipment needs are (e.g., You need to have access to an electrical source) and to understand house rules (e.g., The church does not allow flash photography).
