Contracts

To ensure that your day is as close to perfect as you imagine, it is necessary to “get it in writing.” Paperwork is certainly a less glamorous aspect of wedding planning, but it plays a crucial role in keeping misunderstandings to a minimum.

When a wedding professional provides a contract, make sure you read every line and ask any questions you may have. Compile a list of details you find important so you can incorporate them into the contract.

Make sure your contracts include basic information such as the time and date of the wedding. You will also want to include more specific points such as a spending cap (if there is a clause allowing for unforeseen expenses) and detailed refund policies (in case you want to cancel or they don’t fulfill their end of the agreement).

Even if you have signed a contract, you can still make changes. Just make sure the change is in writing and signed by both parties. Don’t forget to keep a copy of all the paperwork!

Marriage Legalities

More than likely you have dreamed of your wedding day since you were a little girl. You have imagined every detail from your dress to the flowers to the food. Sometimes it is hard to see beyond all the wedding plans to life afterward. Marriage is not only a binding commitment in the eyes of you and your spouse, but also in the eyes of the law. The legal ramifications are far-reaching. You may not be aware that married persons have many legal rights and benefits.

Legal advisors can help you navigate this category of law that now applies to you. Whether you need advice on how to handle prenuptial agreements and marital property, or you want to learn about the various tax, estate planning, government, employment, consumer, and decision-making benefits you can receive, it is helpful to consult the professionals.
