GUARANTEE & INITIAL PAYMENT:
In order to guarantee your reservation, we do request a non-refundable, non-transferable Retainer Fee

CANCELLATION OF WEDDING; CLIENTS’ CHANGE OF HEART REGARDING CONSULTANT’S SERVICES:
We Know you will love our services, however in the unfortunate event that either Client individually or both Clients jointly decide to cancel or call off the Wedding for any reason, or should Clients have a change of heart for any reason with respect to using Affairs by Amanda LLC`s services, an official notice of termination of the Agreement due to the cancellation of the Wedding or change of heart must be given to Affairs by Amanda LLC in writing and the following terms shall apply:
Affairs by Amanda LLC shall be entitled to retain the non-refundable, non-transferable Retainer Fee identified in the Agreement regardless of when such notice is given to Affairs by Amanda LLC, as well as any subsequent payments made by Clients prior to Affairs by Amanda LLC receipt of the notice of termination.

**The termination fees stated herein represent a reasonable estimate of the loss suffered by Consultant in the event of a termination of the Agreement due to a cancellation of the Wedding or change of heart with respect to Affairs by Amanda LLC Services, as compensation for the decreasing likelihood of rebooking Clients’ Wedding date upon such late notice and for Services already rendered by Affairs by Amanda LLC prior to the termination, and are not intended to be a penalty.

In the event that the flower type, color, size, or quantity differs from those originally ordered, Designer shall make the appropriate substitutions to match the Event Profile as closely as possible.
All fresh products are subject to availability and freshness. While we prefer to use the flowers and varieties requested and/or listed on estimates, due to the perishable nature of the product, substitutions are sometimes necessary. We will attempt to contact you with information on substitutions. However, we reserve the right to make the needed changes without approval if deemed necessary to present our best and most creative work. We will take the utmost care to maintain style, theme and color scheme while using flowers of equal or greater value. Accordingly we also reserve the right to artistic license in design. This allows us to adjust to the peculiarities of the flowers used, serving you to the highest of our ability.

The Client acknowledges that they may not be notified if substitutions have to be made.

Upon signing, Designer foregoes other business opportunities and makes arrangements a substantial time prior to the Event, including retention of personnel and other items.
