It looks okay to me, I don’t see any immediate red flags. What are you hesitant about? That you don’t have any way of ensuring that your wedding cake will show on wedding day? I think it should be okay….

Most of my vendors have had VERY unprofessional “contracts” but came highly recommended so I’m not worried.

The only thing I would ask that they ad is when delivery will be on the date – unless you don’t have your timeline down yet.

And how much was your deposit?  Assuming you got a receipt for that and that it will be deducted from that final amount due.

My contract also said if we did any design changes 2 weeks before the wedding a 10% fee would be added.

I think that looks good. The price is super reasonable and my baker didn’t give me a contract either. Just an order sheet and invoice.

@Ms.Sugarsnap:  I would question why they don’t do deposits when their contract says “*Deposit is non-refundable and is used to hold your date*”…

Holy crap do they deliver cakes to California because that’s less than half what they charge here!

Anyway, I would question why they won’t take a deposit but its implied that they do take them at the bottom of your invoice. Are they a tiny bakery or a one-man operation? Or do they have a pretty solid reputation?

@Ms.Sugarsnap:  Oh no!! I’m so sorry that happened to you. At least the deposit wasn’t like 50% or something, and I’m glad you found a new bakery in time.
