So, your cousin has a great camera and takes great photos and your aunt is a hobby florist. Sounds like a no brainer right…put their skills to work and save some money on the big day! Actually, we strongly recommend against this and here are some reasons why.
If you are still leaning towards “hiring” a friend or relative as a wedding vendor here are our words of wisdom. Make sure you draft a contract that clearly stated his or her responsibilities, any payment due to them and any deadlines or important information. By having this contract to reference, you and your “friendor” can have clear expectations and boundaries set to ensure that the relationship lasts beyond your wedding day.
