I'm in the process of adding an order form to my website. I'm just ready to get this thing going. I'm still trying to work out the kinks so if you see anything wrong let me know. You do not have to fill in to form if you don't want to. I just need to know the ease of filling it out. How it flows and such. Any submission will be solely for the purpose of testing. The your notes box at the bottom can be used for problems or notes about the page.

I just free typed everything on the page. I reread it but I'm just getting frustrated with how I want things to be said. If something there doesn't make sense let me know.

Here's the link to the form:


Thank you so soooo much for helping me! Your input is greatly appreciated!

Your website is amazing, as is your work. The order form looks good to me.

You misspelled "receive" in "30-89 Days before you event date will recieve 50% Refund"

Another mistake
completly as possible, completely as possible

Number Of Guest Expected (better use plural i.e guests)
prefered is spelt with double "r" i.e. preferred
check all the receives, you mispelt at least two, but other than that, great form

She spelled receive correctly, the rule is "i" before "e" except after c, so it is correct. I should say the place I saw receive. I think your site is great and the order part is easy to navigate.

First line under "Wedding & Large Orders" was correct - second wasn't.

WOW, looks great. My only concern was for wedding cakes and large cakes it looks like they have to pay the total two weeks before the event? Seems kinda close to the event to me. Maybe I misread your ordering section. Your pictures are awesome, good luck, I'm sure you'll do wonderfully.

"Orders are taken on a first to commit, first processed basis."

"For credit and debit card payments, you will be emailed..."

"Cash drop-offs must be arranged..."

Suggested: "All orders must be paid in full two weeks before your event date."

"...deliver your items successfully. However, I cannot be responsible..."

"...finalized upon receipt of payment."

"...I cannot guarantee any changes."

30-89 Days before your event date will receive.

Please don't think I'm nitpicking on you. This is what I do for a living icon_smile.gif

i like your page. nice job.

yours: (All orders must be fully paid by two weeks of your event

I would change this to: All orders must be paid in full two weeks prior to event.

I think it just flows a little easier. IMO. icon_smile.gif

edited to add: I noticed the word "your" alot. example: I will email or call you within 48hrs to verify your information.

It is not needed, and will save on read time, plus add clarification, and make some sentences flow better. I will email or call within 48 hrs to verify that all information is correct.

the first thing i learned in my professional writing classes is to eliminate all "you & yours" when not absolutely needed. Am I giving away how many business reports I have had to write? icon_lol.gif

Thank you guys! You have been a big help. All changes have been made. The page is about ready to be put up. The link has been disabled until it goes up.

One more change you might want to make on your next update:

If the date requested is booked, orders may be able for pick-up...
