Eg: If I have an order for a cupcake wedding cake do I provide the cupcake stand or does the bride?
Do I need to set it up or do the people who work at the venue do that. I'm so confused and stressed.this is my first big order
I recommend you get your business procedures, structure and pricing all together before you start taking orders. Especially a wedding order. A wedding order is not the time to wonder how you are going to handle set up & rental. I charge for equipment rental & set up.
I would think it would depend on what you agreed to when you met with the client and what is in your contract? Have you met with them yet? If I were the bride I would expect that I could pay a rental fee and the stand would be provided. As for the set up, personally, I would want to set everything up myself so I know it is done correctly and I can take a picture when it is complete showing it was delivered as agreed. You should also have the bride designate someone to sign off on it saying it was ok before you leave. Just my thoughts.
