Behind the Scenes at Raspberry Creative – The Paperwork
I’m a little off the planned schedule with the “Behind the Scenes” series, but late is better than never. Today I’m excited about another behind-the scenes look at how we work with our amazing clients. Earlier this month I shared how we get to know you from our initial contact through the consultation and now it’s time to share a bit about the paperwork.
After our consultation, I have the information I need to start putting together package options with pricing for you. Depending on whether the project is a studio design, a semi-custom or a custom package, the package may be a single option or a few with different options. Our contract outlines what we discussed during our meeting, what kind of wedding you are planning with colors and your style and any decor elements that might inspire the design. It then walks you through, in detail, what will be included in your package, the timeline with milestone dates, the payment process and some fine print about our policies, cancellations and more.
When we have the paperwork complete, we’ll send you a copy for review and work with you on any questions you may have as well as make any changes to the contract before finalizing. This is the final opportunity you will have to make changes to the quantity so we like to give you the time you need to feel confident about what selections you have made.
When you are ready to make your final decisions, we require a completed contract, initialed, signed and dated along with 50% of your total package to get the project in our books. Once we receive these items, we send you a welcome pack filled with lots of helpful information as well as some other goodies we prefer to keep quiet.
From there it’s on to the design which I’ll share a little later this week.
