Event or Wedding Planner Contract Template

These Wedding contracts are highly recommended. The contracts are attorney-prepared and peer-reviewed which takes the guesswork out of what should be included in an agreement. What is included in the wedding contracts:

  • An outline of services you provide
  • A payment plan outline with suggested dates
  • Late fee clause, in case your client misses those payments
  • Confidentiality clause to protect your trade secrets
  • A discussion about who owns the intellectual property you create, with the ability to give it all to the client OR maintain ownership while the client is allowed to use the finished product(s)
  • A limit of liability to minimize the amount of money you’d owe if you ever needed to rely on your contract
  • A disclaimer and release– if clients know what they’re in for, they can take responsibility in case something goes wrong
  • All the boring legal stuff that makes this puppy a real, valid contract (don’t worry- it may be boring but it’s easy to understand)
