I’m having 3 ladies help to set up on the day of my wedding. What type of contract should I issue them to ensure that I am legally covered? God forbid anything happen, but I just want to be safe as I don’t personally know these women; however, I know that they are professional as I have reviewed their wedding planning businesses.

What are you expecting to happen? I would just outline the duties they are expected to perform in a list (maybe even a timeline) and say payment upon completion. If you have insurance any injuries would be under that. If they dont show up, they dont get paid. If they steal something, it would be small claims court.

I mean, basically the same contract with any other vendor?
Since they’re an established business they should have their own insurance (I asked all my vendors if they had “the appropriate insurance” lol i honestly have no idea what that question even meant but they all quickly answered “yes I have x y z insurance” and id be like cool cool..) and I had event insurance as required by the venue.
I think that’s all you really can do?

jellybellynelly : That’s what I was thinking! I’m not really anticipating anything per se, I just like to be thorough + smart when doing business with people.I suppose I was mostly thinking worst casenario: getting sued for injury while on the premises? I don’t anticipate this happening, no harmful tasks assigned, but you never know! This is new territory for me, so just wanted to assure that the insurance was enough. Only one of the girls has sent a contract of her own – she outlined duties, payment, etc.. I will send something similar to the other two. Thank you so much!
