As wedding videographers you know the wedding season is somewhat limited so of course you want to book as many weddings as possible. The more weddings you book, the more your name gets our there and the more your business grows. There are exceptions however. I'm sure you've come across certain brides and/or their family that you just don't feel good about. We recently booked a wedding for Memorial Day Weekend. We did it through the mail so of course we sent our contract, including our addendum requesting that we be included in the dinner plans, whatever they may be. (Sadly,it has become necessary to specify that we need to eat during the long day). Not only is this the right thing to do, but in my case since I am diabetic, it is a must. When we got the contract back from the mother for this particular wedding, she included a note that basically said we had a lot of nerve to ask for dinner... it was very unprofessional. She indicated that she was sure we would bring snacks and providing dinner was a ridiculous expectation. Well, that was a first. We promptly sent her deposit check and a copy of the cancelled contract back to her. There have been other brides and their families that we can just tell from the first meeting that they will be more trouble than it's worth, no matter how much money is involved. That's one of the perks of being your own boss. Sometimes you have to stand on your gut feeling and know that another opportunity will come through. Not everyone is meant to be a good match and since it's such an important and often stressful day, choose carefully. Sometimes it's not about the paycheck!
