Wedding Vendor Services
My father became ill and we have had to postpone our wedding. I don’t have any idea when we will get married now. I have already booked the reception hall, ordered our cake and flowers, signed contracts, put down deposits on some things, and paid in full for other things! How can I get my money back?
The first thing you’ll need to do is get out all of the paperwork you have concerning your wedding. For the most part I am sure most of these places will be very understanding, and work with you the best they can, under the circumstances.
Read over the contracts. They should state what will happen in case of a cancellation. A contract is a legal document, and by signing it you have agreed to everything in it. You may get a partial refund, but more than likely the amount that you paid for the deposit will not be refunded. Some companies may hold that deposit until you are ready to use their services again.
How do I find a photographer who will work for only an hour?
I am sure you would have no problem finding a photographer who will work for one hour! Not knowing your plans or budget, it would be safe to say you will probably wind up paying a travel charge, as well as a service charge. Some photographers offer package deals, regardless of the amount of hours involved. Some have a two hour minimum. They would probably work for only an hour, although you would be paying the two hour minimum!
Pittsburghwedding.com has over sixty photographer listings, you can view them by clicking the ‘Find Vendors’ link at the top of this page. Most of them have websites you can visit, e-mail addresses and phone numbers. Compose one e-mail and send copies to all the photographers you find interesting. Make sure to include your plans in the e-mail, such as the type of event, location, date and time. I am sure you will receive some positive response! It will take a little research on your part, but if you are looking for a professional, it will be worth the extra effort!
We are planning an outside wedding in a tent. The wedding is formal and not a picnic type wedding. My question is what do you do for bathrooms that aren't those horrible port-a-potties?
Unless there are public bathrooms, or someone’s home nearby, I’m afraid you might have to go with the port-a-potty. But first, you need to go out and look at what they have to rent now-a-days! It is really amazing how much they have changed! They now are made much, much bigger, lights inside and out, running water in the sink, mirrors for the ladies, and also different colors. They are very nice for a port-a-potty! Remember they will only be used for a short time as well! So, keep an open mind and visit a few rental places. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
