I call credit cards the insurance policy in a future bride's and groom's wallet. It's important to know how a credit card can protect and benefit you as you plan your wedding, in more ways than one.

Read the following information to get a handle on why you should only use credit card to pay for all your wedding expenses.

How Credit Cards Benefit YOU and Your Wedding!

* Never pay wedding vendors/venues with cash or check. Pay only with your credit card, which will protect you should the vendor/venue go out of business.

* A credit card can be used to dispute a charge by a vendor/venue if there is a case for nonperformance—and the vendor/venue refuses to acknowledge the claim or credit you, the client.

* Many credit cards offer cash back or bonuses for their use. Imagine receiving 3% back on a $20,000 wedding reception, for example.

* Use a credit card affiliated with an airline to get double frequent-flier miles when reserving your honeymoon.

* Many credit cards offer free travel insurance and other incentives for their use.

* There are no finance charges if the credit card is paid within 30 days, which is why I advise my clients to always pay their wedding expenses with a credit card, no matter how much cash they have in the bank.

Yes, there is. You need to include the vendor's "work order" as a part of your contract, which will detail the job the vendor is to do for you. Make sure the change and/or addition to the contract is initialed by both parties.

Always be sure to pass ALL contracts past your attorney before signing, so that you know that you are adequately protected.
