Wedding Questionnaire

It seems not may videographers send out a questionnaire when they post out their letter of confirmation once a booking has been received. This is a very important part of the whole package and saves hours of chasing around after the client trying to get small snippets of information like first dance song etc.

So here is mine. It covers all bases and gives you all the info required to get on with editing and making the dvd while the couple are on honeymoon.

Let me know if this is of any use to you. Its put up in low quality but you can make up your own in Word or whatever word processing program you use.

Our entire booking process is online. Fill out the form, tells them if they miss off the vital, must have info, they agree to the T's and C's and then it takes them to the page to pay their deposit via cheque or card. If they want to book using paper they can but everyone find us via the web so makes it easy.

Form gets sent to us, copy to them with instructions on what happens next.

No handwriting problems then ;)

That's funny, Steve. My pre-wedding consult looks a lot like your PDF, just organized a bit different.

One thing I've started doing is contacting the DJ the week before the wedding and going over the schedule with him. This way if I want to do an equipment change between the toasts and the first dance I can have the DJ put that into his schedule and he won't forget on the day of the wedding because it's actually part of his schedule.

Very good idea. I've askign some of these questions and building them into my contract (mostly the who, what & when type of questions). But that is a good idea to have it on its own sheet so it doesn't clutter my contract front page.
