LIVE! #333 – Prices on your Wedding Website

HOST: Debbie Quain
ORIGINAL AIR DATE: Tuesday, January 29, 2013

This was another short-but-sweet episode of Confetti, the wedding planning business talk show.

Kerri sent in two questions about wedding receptions:

  • How long should a wedding reception last?
  • And, is it okay to serve appetizers-only at a wedding reception.

Jessica also asked a great question about whether or not to include pricing on her wedding planning website.  (Do you?)

  1. Hi Debbie,

    How would one go about dealing with a vendor who did not live up to the contract/terms on the day of the wedding? What is one’s recourse, or options?

    Thank you again, and again, and again!


    1. Hi Nancy,

      If the contract is between the vendor and your client, then your involvement, as the wedding planner, is a tricky one. If you made the recommendation then I think it goes without saying that any future referrals cease.

      But it really depends on which part of the contract wasn’t fulfilled and how it affected your client’s wedding day. Did the florist deliver pink roses instead of red? Or, did the DJ shut down 30 minutes before his/her contracted time?

      The whole point of a contract is to ensure that both parties know what is expected. If someone fails to deliver what was agreed, then it becomes a legal matter…not something that I am qualified to provide any advice about. If your client(s) decide that they want to pursue the matter, then my suggestion would be to seek legal counsel.

      Thankfully, I don’t have firsthand experience with a situation like this.

      Does that help?

  2. Yes, thanks! I am not a lawyer, and hope that I don’t ever experience that type of situation. Wanted to know what my limitations were, and it’s just that, future referrals would cease if something was not done as a courtesy…i.e. The florist delivered white roses instead of red, I would expect either a credit back or red roses delivered to the client or if the clients wanted to pursue, then they would have to seek legal counsel.
