Q: How do I make potential clients aware of my policies and procedures without scaring them off? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you've felt a little nervous to debut your P&P's to potential couples you're not alone! It's a common concern. I ALWAYS suggest being upfront and honest with potential clients. You never want to hide your P&P's from them out of fear that they'll not choose your venue but then try to sneak them in with your contract and hold your couple accountable down the road. That creates a negative client experience. 🙅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So how do you make them aware of your P&P's without scaring them off? Communication. First off, don't introduce your P&P's in the verbiage that your contract reads - all of that legal-speak is scary! Instead, rewrite them to be bride-friendly. What I mean by this is that you're still getting your point across but your delivery and explanation as to why you have that policy is coming from the direction that you have the client's best interest at heart which you most certainly do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'd like to encourage you to read your P&P's from a bride's perspective and then take a stab at rewriting them to be less scary, save the intimidating legalese to reinforce your P&P's in your contract. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 by @lindsayelizabethphotography of my favorite of the five famous painted churches in Texas.
