20 days ago we put down the $1000 deposit for our venue and signed the contract. I have yet to get a receipt or a copy of the contract.
I was kind of expecting these would be mailed to us within a week of giving them the money. The place we’re having our wedding is reputable and very popular for summer weddings in our area and have heard nothing but great things about them… so I trust them and all. But I feel like I just threw cash out there with no proof of our “agreement.”
It is reasonable for me to request these right?
Did you all get copies of the contract and receipts for your vendors?

Yes, absolutely. Anything I mailed, I got an immediately email notification when the deposit was recieved, and then got a mailed or scanned copy of the contract from the vendor.
For future contracts, make a copy for yourself before you send it off.

Yes, you should have a copy of the contract and the receipt.

It’s definitely a reasonable request and you should definitely have a copy of the receipt. I have copies of the contracts and receipts for all of my vendors – except for my photographer who I just have a copy of the contrac (she’s a friendor so I don’t feel the need to have a copy of the receipt).

Yep, it’d certainly be appropriate to email them and ask for the receipt. You should make sure you have a copy of your contract with all your vendors.

I have a folder with all my contracts and reciepts, it is completely reasonable, and frankly responsible, of you to request a copy of the contract and reciept. They shouldn’t have a problem supplying you with either.

You probably should have gotten it right when you signed and handed over the money. But definitely get proof now…

@Jamiezilla: We mailed the contract and check to them so we weren’t there to get a receipt and copy of the signed contract right away.
I have since communicated with them about the wedding and they cashed the check awhile ago so I know they got it.
I’ve just emailed them and requested the receipt and copy of the signed contract.
Thanks everyone for your replies 🙂

@maganda: Ohhh something about when you said throwing cash out there made me think you signed it in person and actually handed over bills. Sorry!!
