Wedding businesses are often considered in the field of art. As a result it is super easy to forget to take care of the legal side of the business and focus on the fun side of things instead. Any wedding business who has run into legal issues however could tell you this is a mistake.

Remember, while you are creating a beautiful event, you are dealing with a lot of people with their emotions on overdrive. This can lead to a lot of crazy behavior and can result in the blame game getting completely out of control. More than that however you need to remember that what you are creating is new. No wedding is alike.

  1. It’s a GOOD thing for venues to ask for insurance. Some in our area are now asking to see a BUSINESS LICENCE as well. Having both of these is just a part of doing business as a REAL business and is to protect not only the venue, but their (and yours) clients as well.
