RETAINER: Upon your signature, the cake decorator will reserve the time and date agreed upon, and will not make other reservations for that time and date. For this reason, a retainer of 50% is non-refundable, even if the date is changed or the wedding cancelled for any reason; including acts of God, fire, strike and/or extreme weather. The retainer is to be paid at time of signing the contract. The retainer is applied towards the contracted cake. THE CLIENT understands and agrees that the entire amount owed for the final product as described in the contract is due 28 days prior to the wedding date:___________________
STANDS MUST BE RETURNED UNWASHED AND IN GOOD CONDITION 4 days after delivery date: ________________ Stands not returned by this date will be charged a $4.00 per day late fee.
