It is never rude to negotiate a contract.  It is good business.  It is what EVERYONE should be doing.  It not only protects you, but also protects them.  If there is only an oral agreement, they don’t deliver and you try to sue, that hurts them as well (even if you don’t win, that’s time and money spent fighting the claim).  You should always consider their boiler plate contract a starting point and make sure any additional details negotiated are in writing and put as an addendum to the original contract.  Any vendor who thinks this would be “rude” isn’t a vendor you want to do business with.

I haven’t covered anything like this for my wedding, but I work with contracts quite a bit with work and it’s alllllways best to be as specific as possible – especially when the deadline is several months off. Just be kind about it and be like – I don’t want to forget specifics as my head fills with all the various details from planning the wedding and I’d like to be able to refer back to know what I have covered etc. She might want the same. She may absolutely mean that the bridesmaids all get eyelashes right now, but 10 months down the line she may forget what she’d agreed to and not bring enough or some such thing. It doesn’t mean that you suspect that she will intentionally break the contract, it just means that it’s all laid out for both of you to make sure that all the details are covered.
