cancellation notice before the scheduled wedding date.
Reschedule Option: If at least ten (10) days'

Inclement Weather: If your
wedding will be outdoors, it is your responsibility to have a backup
plan in place in the rare instance of inclement weather. Inclement weather includes
but is not limited to just a rain shower. If there is the threat of lightening, anticipated
thunderstorms or other dangerous weather conditions, the wedding MUST be
moved to a safe location for your protection as well as your guests. If you are planning a reception, you may be able to arrange to have the
wedding at your reception venue as a backup plan. You will also have the
option to reschedule your wedding once (like within the next day or so) if you prefer.

- Damage Liability: The
bride and groom assume full liability for any property damage done
by themselves or their guests before, during or after the wedding,
and agree to reimburse property owner for such damage.
- Unity Candles: Extreme
care must be taken when handling the Unity candles. The wedding
couple assumes all liability for any mishaps related to their use
of these candles. Candles are not provided for beach
weddings because of the constant breeze; however we offer two other
unity ceremonies, the Rose Ceremony and the Hawaiian Sand Ceremony, which
can be performed on the beach or anywhere.
- Wedding Music:
Wedding music is available for all weddings -
pop, country, classical, R&B, Christian, or any other selections
you may choose. You are welcome to provide your own
music in lieu of or in addition to the music we provide. Any
music you provide must be received by Affordable Weddings at least
2 days in advance of your wedding day in either cda, mp3 or wav
format. You may also have
live musicians and singers perform during your
ceremony. For beach weddings, music is optional, since many
couples prefer the natural sound of the surf, and hearing music
can sometimes be difficult over the ocean's roar, especially when
it is windy.
The beach environment can also affect electronic
equipment – wind, sand, fog and humidity can occasionally cause problems
beyond our control. We do our very best under challenging
There is NO additional charge for briefly rehearsing at the
wedding site just
before the wedding starts, or rehearsing at our office any
available date & time.
There is an additional $100 charge for time and travel
for a separate rehearsal at the wedding site at any other time.
If you want a rehearsal, please contact our office and schedule it
well in advance.
- Late Start: Your
wedding has been given a specific time slot. Other wedding couples
may be dependent upon your wedding starting at the specified time so
that their wedding may be timely as well. We have agreed to provide services to you at
the specified time. Your guests also should rightly expect
that the wedding will start on time. Therefore, a late fee
will necessarily be charged for any wedding that does not start
within 30 minutes of the specified time. Thirty minutes late
will be assessed a $25 fee; 45 minutes or later $50, and any wedding that
has not begun within an hour after the scheduled time may be cancelled
with no refund, at the officiant's discretion.
