Use Your Credit Card: Protect Your Wedding Investment!

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.

Research the ones that have the most to offer you, as you plan your wedding and your honeymoon.

And remember: No matter how much cash you have in the bank, pay with your credit card!

      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.
