generic boilerplate wedding contract - Page 4

post #46 of 108
Hey Doug thanks so much for this. I think it is a great contract and answers pretty much every question under the sun. So I actually used it for my recent cake testing... I edited and removed somethings that I didn't think I needed and so on. It ended up being 9 pages! yikes!

So I have a question though... Have you ever had any brides look at that and be like, wow! That is one contract then turn around and run. I realize that there are some brides who may do this and it is good they did run. However, I am a little afraid that my last client has been a little turned off by such a contract. Have you had any experience with this?

That's great! Thank you!

Wow and this would be only one element of the contract? You'd end up sending the bride home with a book to read! Haha. Must be a bit overwhelming?

This is really great though... and I'll definitely be taking some ideas off this. A lot of effort you've put in. icon_smile.gif

by covering every base, infield, outfield, in-laws and even a few outlaws...this gives everyone a place to start and adapt to personal situation.

all these clauses (and there are more waiting in the wings) were the result of some bridezilla or tale of client woe thread on here.

So, I wrote a clause to address each of them up until the time I posted it.

thanks for the additional clauses, this will definitely help me to revise my already revised contract (how I know about those bridezillas)

Wow...that sure covers everything. I'm one of those who would be afraid of handing this out though -- I'm married to an attorney, and even *I* felt overwhelmed by all the bits to intial and agree to....

no one said you had to use it all -- just those parts you need (or in your case hubby advises are needed)

I just laughed though because I'm the kind of person that has trouble writing ANYthing in just a few words. (Why use 4 words when you can use 40? Can't help it, I was a technical writer in my Before Children days...I was paid to be wordy and old habits die hard.)
So my inclination would be to keep it ALL in, just in case. Thereby freaking out any and all potential customers. icon_wink.gif

hhmmmm....I get it!

Tech writers and lawyers went the to the Charles Dickens School of Writing!

where we are paid by the word (he was -- 1 cent/word -- that helps explains why his novels are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long!)

I just found this link and I noticed how long ago it was created. I'm trying to view the contract, but I'm gettting a message that the "Login has Failed". Is there another way to view it? Thanks!

I just tried it and it worked.

I did both copy/paste method and also typed the password in -- it IS CASE SENSITIVE and those little dashes are required too.

Are you copying and pasting the password - being sure to NOT include any extra spaces?

I did have to hit the log-in button twice (seems to be a glitch on their end) but it did work

It worked this time. I copied and pasted the first few times I tried it. This time I typed it myself. Not sure what went wrong, but thank you!
