Additional Provisions regarding Wedding Options
Venue, Time, Date – Please note that, because we do not control the venue, we cannot guarantee the availability of the venue on the date and time you selected and electronically submitted using our Site. Accordingly, once we receive your submission, a member of our staff will confirm the availability of your requested venue, date, and time and will notify you once these details have been confirmed. Upon confirmation, you will be required to pay a deposit as outlined in Section II(b) below. We will hold the venue for the date and time you request as a courtesy for a period of up to ten (10) days pending our receipt of the deposit. If we do not receive the deposit within this time, your reservation will be cancelled and the venue released.
Ceremony Time – It is very important that you are prompt for your ceremony because your site is reserved and your service providers are hired for a specific amount of time. Service providers will arrive at the ceremony site at least fifteen (15) minutes prior to your scheduled time. They will wait for your arrival one half (1/2) hour past your scheduled ceremony start time. Beyond this one half (1/2) hour, the service providers will leave. You agree and acknowledge that your fee will not be refunded if you miss the ceremony start time.
Floral and Décor Requests – Floral and décor prices are not inclusive of delivery and set-up fees. These fees will be added to your final order for floral and décor costs. We will make every effort to fulfill the floral and décor requests that you selected and electronically submitted on our Site. However, due to seasonal availability, unexpected price increases due to industry fluctuation, or other unforeseen circumstances or occurrences beyond our control, we may be unable to satisfy your requests. By using our service, you expressly acknowledge that any changes necessary due to such circumstances shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement by Just Marry!
Rehearsal – Some venues include rehearsals with their site fees while others do not. Please review your ceremony location carefully to determine whether your site fees include a rehearsal. If your site does not include a rehearsal, a rehearsal can be provided for an additional $250.00 and is based upon availability. The unavailability of a rehearsal shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement by Just Marry!
Marriage License – A valid Florida marriage license is required to be legally married in Florida. Obtaining a valid Florida marriage license is your responsibility. Additional information on obtaining a valid Florida marriage license is available on our Site.
FEES AND DEPOSIT.
Fee Amount. As consideration for the provision of the Services, you agree to pay Just Marry! the sum of fees for all itemized services as listed on the Site (the “Fees”). Upon electronically submitting your selections, you will be redirected to a confirmation page that will display all of your selected options. Additionally, you will receive a confirmation e-mail providing you with instructions on how to log onto your online event profile on our Site.

Deposit Required and Full Payment. Just Marry! will require a deposit equal to 50% of the Fees (the “Deposit”) to be paid by you within ten (10) days of the execution of this Agreement. The Deposit is non-refundable. The Deposit will be applied to the Fees. You agree to pay the balance of the Fees no later than forty-five (45) days prior to the wedding date, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by the Parties. If you fail or refuse to pay the balance of the Fees within ten (10) days prior to the wedding date, Just Marry! will not provide the Services to you and Just Marry! shall be released from any and all liability and responsibility regarding the Services to you under this Agreement, which refusal to perform the Services shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement by Just Marry!

Additionally, you will be responsible for any incidental expenses, such as postage, long distance phone calls, courier services, and other similar expenses incurred by Just Marry!

Additional services can be added until three (3) days prior to the wedding based on availability. Payment for any additional wedding options or additional services will be due immediately. Because all items are custom made and service providers are contracted, items paid for forty-five (45) days prior to the wedding cannot be changed or cancelled and Just Marry! will not issue any refunds for paid items. You agree to pay Just Marry! a monthly finance charge of 15% per annum, or the highest interest rate allowable by law (whichever is less), of any Fees or other amounts that you owe that are not paid when due.

V. POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS: We understand that unforeseen situations such as critical illness or the death of an immediate family member may sometimes arise, disrupting wedding plans. In these situations, clients have the option of postponing their event to avoid losing any portion of their nonrefundable deposit payment. Just Marry! will strive to reschedule the client’s event to an alternate date while honoring the initial service package booked; however, Just Marry! cannot guarantee pricing will remain unaffected, as factors such as venue/vendor availability, seasonality of floral and similar services, etc. must be taken into account when changing dates. In these situations, clients will be informed of any price adjustments that might be needed to change their event date so they can make the best decision for them.
TERM. This Agreement shall be effective on the Effective Date and shall continue until the completion of the wedding unless terminated sooner in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
