Deadlines for contracts

Hello Guys and Gals,

I'm new to the forum but I'm in the wedding business for 4 years and I've always had concerns how to set deadlines for finished products.

Of course - clients would like to have it done instantly - it is not possible (at least not for small budget production). They always ask at the end of the reception when they can expect the DVD's. So what do you tell them? Or do you have something mentioned in the contract? I.e 1 month after the wedding?

How to handle impatient brides ? :-)

Thx in advance.

Lukas,
welcome to the forum. not to sound harsh but this subject has been beaten to death here so if you do a search in the wedding/event forum I think you'll find your answer many times over. I know I have answered this question at least 5 or 6 times myself.

Thanks and once again, Welcome!

Don

I just searched for "wedding deadlines", "wedding Deliveries" "wedding DVD delivery" and came up with a bunch of different threads. Some were not really what I wanted but many were. Also go to the wedding/event forum and just kind of scroll thru the pages there. There are lots and lots of pages that might contain what you're looking for.
Hey listen we don't say don't post the thread again all we're saying is that many of these subjects have been talked about ad nauseum and try searching first. Then if you can't find anything post it and we'll do what we can to help.
