- Wedding: October 2013
I’m noticing a strange trend with a few (3) of my vendors. In their contracts they require a deposit or the final payment 30 days-2 weeks out. It is now 2 weeks before the wedding and as I re-read these contracts, I’m finding that many include this clause, but none have contacted me or sent a bill for that final payment. I sent an email last week to my caterer asking about this deposit and mailed my check in (another long story where even though I attached a post-it with all my information to the check, they still managed to deposit it and then not note it on my account since the check was in my fiance’s name.)
I noticed my photographer has the same clause, as well as my venue. I just emailed my venue asking about this deposit/final payment as well.
Did anybody else have to be proactive in paying their vendor, or did you all receive bills? Do you think I should be less proactive in making sure they’re charging me when they should? Is this a sign of things to come? I know my wedding is smaller and cheaper than average (58 people, under 10K budget) but seriously…I feel like an afterthought when the vendors don’t remember me.
