No, I’m not talking about Britney’s outfit on GMA this morning (her behind looked great!)… I’m talking about wedding contracts (or any type of contract, for that matter).
As the planning process moved forever, I got better and better at negotiating contracts with my vendors, bargaining, and closing loopholes. Unfortunately, I was kind of naive when we signed our first (and second most costly) contract — the photographer.
Since reading girl running around‘s blog rants about her terrible photographer (I really hope it all works out for her!), I reviewed our photographer contract to double check that we’ve covered our behinds. Guess what? There is no "due date" for the deliverables (like the photo CD of prints or the actual wedding album)! Instead of freaking out, I called him during my lunch break and got him to agree to issue an amended contract with deadline information.
Moral of the story: do lots of research about what should be in the contract before signing one! I didn’t end THINK to establish a due date!
Around 9:30, I had a bowl of Grape Nuts…
And lunch was a simple meal that definitely satisfied me! I had 1 cup brown rice, steamed asparagus, and chicken with chili pepper seasonings.
Do you have any wedding contract horror stories? What about wedding horror stories in general? Because, you know, I love to totally freak myself out. And maybe I can learn from others’ experiences! 🙂
WOww..i just read some of her dramz..that completely sucks- and the worst part is that they are withholding something that is more meaningful and valuable to her and her family than to anyone else, and it comes down to that more than money or anything..too bad all the bloggers can’t show them what’s up! Good luck with all of your stuff!
