Ok, let's dive into each legal agreement and WHY you need them for your wedding planner business.

Wedding Planner Contracts: Event Planning Agreement

When you start your wedding planning business–you need to have a contract for your clients to sign.

You know that creating the perfect event is all in the details, such as the venue, the decor, the catering. When it all comes together and works the way it should, it’s a great experience for all parties. With that said, a smart wedding planner knows that planning ahead and communicating clearly will prevent issues every time.

This Event Planning Agreement is a contract template that clearly defines expectations, terms, and conditions related to the execution of an event.

It includes:

  • List of services being provided on behalf of the event
  • How, when, and what method payment to render payment
  • Cancellation terms for both parties, and
  • Termination clause

This event planning contract template for wedding planners also includes the all-important force Majeure clause, which relieves obligations for both parties in the event of a catastrophic and unforeseen issue.

It's likely that your wedding planner contract needs some adjustments after 2020 and COVID-19. Be sure to check out the wedding planner contract from Legally Set and save 20% off your purchase with the code PURPOSE.

You can also grab the wedding planner contract bundle at an extra special price, which includes a styled shoot agreement and an independent contractor agreement!

Styled Shoot Agreement

What's the next wedding planner contract you need to have? It's all about styled shoots.

Styled Shoots are a great way to showcase your work while partnering with awesome event professionals like yourself. 

This Styled Shoot Agreement outlines the role and responsibility of each participating vendor.

Listen, I don't want you to get burned on your next styled shoot. It's because of poor communication and the lack of a legal document in place that shoots go sour.

Let's make sure that what is going to be a fun and creative project doesn't turn it into an unfair nightmare.

As a wedding planner, you're usually the point person for styled shoots and the designer. This styled shoot agreement ensures that every vendor participating understands the nature of the shoot. It also outlines how they can use and share it, and what they get in return for their time and product.

Click here to grab the styled shoot agreement and use the code PURPOSE to save 20% off at Legally Set.

Independent Contractor Agreement

In your wedding planner business, you need a contractor/freelancer agreement for when you’re hiring someone independent (non-employee) to assist you.

This agreement covers everything from day-of wedding assistants to interns, a copywriter you hire, and even a social media manager.

This contract outlines the work they do for you.

It includes how much you're paying them, who owns the copyright and content, etc. so that you avoid any legal or financial drama.

This is a *MUST HAVE* wedding planner contract in your business. If you don't have an independent contractor agreement, just click here to grab yours and save 20% off with the code purpose.

Website Privacy Policy

I know you've seen these ALL over the internet, but do you really need a website privacy policy for your wedding planner business?

The answer is YES.

Is your website is collecting personal information from its visitors? Do you have google analytics installed, or are you asking people to sign up for your email list?

Yes? You need a Privacy Policy.

Legally Set's GDPR-compliant Privacy Policy template outlines what type of data you collect, why you collect it, and how you handle the data.

It also outlines a user’s rights under various laws such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Act (GDPR) AND California Online Privacy Protection Act. You definitely need a privacy policy.

A Privacy Policy is a huge step towards protecting your business virtually.

And yes, you need it.

Download your website privacy policy now and save 20% with the code purpose. Be sure to upload it right away!

COVID-19 Liability Waiver

This COVID-19 Liability Waiver is protection for wedding planners whose services involve close physical interactions with the client.

As a wedding planner, this waiver acts as an added level of protection and will serve as proof that your client acknowledges the risks involved in their participation in the service.

Liability issues can arise in your 2021 wedding season with COVID, and therefore you must be legally protected with a COVID-19 liability waiver. While it's perfect for wedding planners, it can also work for hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, and other vendors who work intimately with a couple on their wedding day.

Click here to grab your COVID-19 liability waiver and save 20% off with the code PURPOSE.

So, that's it. Those are the wedding planner contracts you need in your business. Even if you have some of these, it might be time to refresh them.
