Wedding Costs and Quotations
Most suppliers of services will provide the customer with an estimate for their services.
It is vitally important to note the difference between an estimate (just that) and a quotation (the real amount to be paid, which is set in stone).
All correspondence, quotations and receipts should be carefully filed.
Make a note of deposits paid, when balances are due, and sums outstanding.
Be aware that most suppliers' quotes exclude VAT, so allow for the extra percentage to be added on.
Most suppliers will need to be paid in full in advance; others will need a cheque or cash on the day (a best man's duty).
Some suppliers may invoice after the day, so remember to check what's outstanding in return from honeymoon.
