One of the most exciting moments as a new wedding planner, or indeed established wedding planner, is hearing that a client wishes to book you. Your marketing is working, the consultation was perfect, your proposal was spot on and now you have the booking, yay (time to dance round the room)!But remember nothing is confirmed until that contract is signed and deposit is paid, do not, and I repeat do not, commence any work for the new clients until the contract is signed, sealed and delivered.
Remember your time = money you should be earning
Do you have a legally sound client contract?
The contract should protect you AND your client by detailing what service you are undertaking for them, your fee and specifically what is included or excluded from your fee. Many wedding planners in the UK use a contract provided by the UKAWP which includes not just regular legal liabilities within, but also clauses pertaining to our industry in particular.
