Then present all information to the bride just to let her know exactly what kind of deal she got.

But then, I'm a smarta$$ like that!

I know it took me awhile to respond, I've been extremely busy! However, I decided not to say anything to the bride considering it's not in the contract. If she says something upon final payment then I will tell her about my costs, buying in bulk etc. My husband also suggested telling her that all of my receipts are given to our accountant.

Tell your hubby that's a good one!
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Ask if you can see her paystub, tax return, and monthly bills just to make sure she is paying a fair wage. Surely if she has more disposable income than most she should pay a "fair" price.
