Just getting started and was curious as to where I would find a standard contract?

I would also love to know. Found one using "search" but wondering if there are any others??

Generic contracts are "ok" .... but if you're taking steps to become a real business, I'd recommend getting an attorney to look yours over to make sure the clauses you've put in are enforceable in your state (i.e. some states prohibit a vendor keeping a "deposit" but it's ok to keep a "retainer"). Most contracts are a growing document .... everytime we get screwed over by a bride, we end up adding a new clause ..... and the phrasing could make or break a person if the person adding the clause isn't an attorney.

I had an existing contract but when I finally had an attorney look it over, he made a few changes (in my favor, I might add!).

link to a an extensive template that MUST be taken to an attorney for custom tailoring to your specific circumstances.

this is one put together as IndyDebi alluded to by just adding in time and again yet another "that's the last time a bride......." clauses
