- Wedding: October 2010
My fiancee and I chose our wedding venue in Vermont. After some discussion with their coordinator, I realized English was not her first language, however, she seemed to have a grasp on what she was doing. Today, I received the contract and more than misspellings, there seem to be whole clauses missing.
Some of my questions are: shouldn’t there be clauses in here for liability and damage? What happens if the place burns down? There’s plenty of accountability on my end, but not so much on theirs. Can I just add them in? Should I expect them to have coverage in case someone slips and falls?
We also agreed to book all the rooms of the inn (not a problem with 32 rooms needing to be booked). However, these are included in our contract, which we were not expecting, increasing our deposit from $3k to $8k. Is this considered normal? Do I just need to ask how they’re going to book the rooms?
What should I be looking for in this contract and what safeguards can I put in to make sure I don’t get screwed?
