OR I have integrated the entire document here (again, it is distorted in this format): [ ] Additional information about the wedding professional (florist, caterer, photographer) if necessary Why the 6-8 week window? If they book the cake 8 weeks before the wedding, I usually get the $100 “Save the Date” right away and make the first payment due in two weeks. If they book it months in advance, I usually set the due date of 8 weeks. It varies a bit and I agree with that. If it is booked on short notice of more than 8 weeks (which is rare as I am usually full so far in advance), I immediately ask for 50%. Hello Rose! Are you not responsible in your police for what happens after you leave the premises? I just had a bride asking for money because of a twisted cake. I have pictures from before I left. Thank you, T In these situations, I always try to make it very clear that I won`t start working on a wedding cake or deliver it until I`m fully paid – no exceptions. But I`m ahead of myself. On the contract, I need 50% of the balance due 6-8 weeks before the event and the balance is due 2 weeks before the event.

This form contains space to sketch a drawing of the cake and a section for device deposit information. [ ] Payments to be made, in what form and due dates granted, I tell brides that changes can be made within a reasonable time before the wedding. If they find that they have more or fewer guests than originally planned, or if they suddenly see a different design or texture they like, I`ll make the changes if I can (and adjust the price accordingly). [ ] Your names and contact details (address, phone and email) Are you in layers of cake and columns and only charge for them? Or do you demand their return? For as long as I can remember, other cake decorators have asked me about the use, drafting and execution of wedding cake contracts. And finally, after centuries of planning to publish it (because I`m a big lazy person sometimes), today I share a generic blank wedding cake contract and the guidelines I used when using it. And that, my friends, is my policy and method of drafting wedding cake contracts. [ ] Shipping and installation costs (including how and when the cake is delivered) I said “ideally” because this is the only step I sometimes forget.
I`ve had brides who have contacted me and said, “Hey, I forgot to send that last payment, and my wedding is this weekend. when do I pay you?? » WHOOPS! In this case, the answer is: “NOW”. haha! [ ] Detailed description of the cake you agreed on: Hello Rose, first of all I would like to thank you for all the information that is very useful.. .
