I have a wedding next Sunday and I stated on every contract "wedding must be paid in full one month prior to event". So the couple sent me a check about a week and 1/2 ago (it was late) and I just took it to the bank yesterday and the check date says "10/4/09". So I can't cash it until then. UMMMM!!!! The wedding is next SUNDAY! I'm so upset right now. 1) would you take the wedding now that they broke the contract? 2) Would you charge them extra for all this hassle and for breaking the contract? 3) What would you do? I e-mailed her and told her I would not be able to photograph her wedding until the balance is paid in full. This is very frustrating. Who does stuff like this!?
