    I'm about to sign my contract with Emeline. Anything I should add or take out of the contract?

    I made her add in "All tables, banquet chairs, white linens, white chair covers for banquet chairs are included for the wedding." Do I need to make sure she puts in china, silverware, chairs on the beach for the wedding, etc? Also, what are your thoughts on the "Performance damages?" Is that normal or can I ask her to take it out?

    I have also asked my WC to look over the contract for me as well. I'm still waiting to hear back from her. I know I sound paranoid but I just feel Emeline is a bit sneaky and I want to make sure I cover everything so there are no surprises later.

    Thanks for your help.

      I was ok with my contract , I did confirm with her in a seperate email about the chairs, tables etc.... I just keep every mail that I send her. I have created a book just for the Hilton with all the emails that I send and what she send to me. As a wedding planner and owner of catering company, I do understand the preformance damges. Not sure if that is something she can take out or re-word, but never hurt to ask.

        Have you that about not doing a room block, I think you can avoid the performance damges. I was told that w/o a room block , they charge a fee of $1000.00 to just have the wedding.

          I just signed the basic contract, b/c I didn't think to add or subtract anything.

          The HIlton provided tables, chairs, votives, table and chair linens as well as other necessary lighting outside. There was also no extra charge for any china.

          This was my table.

            I thought of that but then we won't get the better rate on the rooms. I'm pretty sure nothing is going to happen to cause us to have to worry about the Perfomance Damages. I just wanted to find out if this was normal.

            I too have kept every email between me and Emeline. And thank goodness I did. We had an issue earlier this week about the room level she promised us but because I had her guarantee in writing in the email, we're all set.

                  What exactly are "Performance Damages". This might have been in my contract, but it wasn't something that stood out.

                    Wow!!! Your tables were beautiful!!!

                    Did you have to pay extra for the orange chair ties and colored napkins?

                    Also, where did you get your flowers? Those are really nice. I LOVE low to the table flowers. So elegant and beautiful.

                      Thank you.

                      I didn't pay extra for the ties. Emeline told me what colors the HIlton had and I chose what I wanted.

                      I ordered the flowers in loose bundles from Flower Cart. I also rented the low vases from them. They were delivered about 30 minutes before the ceremony. 4 of us just chopped all the stems off (most of the stem anyway) and arranged them in the vases. It turned out exactly like I pictured: simple.
