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 thirty (30) minutes past your scheduled ceremony start time. Beyond this thirty (30) minutes, 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 will be made available to you by your Just Marry! planner after booking.
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 into your online event profile on our site. It is your responsibility to review the confirmation page, verify all details, and notify us promptly at the e-mail address listed below if there are any errors in this information.
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. This deposit is non-refundable and will be applied to the Fees, including any deposits made and/or labor provided by Just Marry! in the course of fulfilling your Service Agreement. (For Force Majeure conditions, see Section XI.) You agree to pay the remaining 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!
EXPENSES. If the wedding location is outside the three county area generally considered to be Orlando, you will be responsible for travel charges at the rate of .55 per mile. 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! These expenses will be invoiced and due payable upon receipt.
IV. BILLING AND PAYMENT. Just Marry! shall invoice you for the Services upon confirmation of your wedding event details and you agree to pay for the Services you selected in accordance with Section II. Just Marry! shall invoice you for any additional services or expenses as they are incurred. Final payment is due forty-five (45) days prior to the event for the services to be guaranteed. 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. You hereby agree to pay all costs of collection, including reasonable attorney fees and court costs, incurred by Just Marry! if legal action is instituted by Just Marry! against you for breach of your payment responsibilities under this Agreement. Any amounts paid to Just Marry! after the due date must be paid by cashier’s check or money order. Checks should be made payable to Just Marry! for Fees, related products, and incidental expenses.
V. POSTPONEMENT REQUESTS: We understand that unforeseen situations such as critical illness, imposed travel restrictions, 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 non-refundable 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.
VI. TERMINATION. If you terminate this Agreement and/or cancel the wedding for any reason more than thirty (30) days before the date scheduled for the wedding, you will forfeit the Deposit paid to Just Marry! and you shall reimburse Just Marry! for all outstanding out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Just Marry! through the date of termination. If you terminate this Agreement and/or cancel the wedding for any reason within thirty (30) days of the date scheduled for the wedding, the full Fees are payable to Just Marry! and you shall reimburse Just Marry! for all outstanding out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Just Marry! through the date of termination. If you elect to terminate this Agreement, you must send us notice in writing via e-mail and/or U.S. mail at the notice address provided below.
VII. INCLEMENT WEATHER. Just Marry! agrees to reserve a guaranteed indoor alternate location in the event of inclement weather. The decision on whether to move the event indoors will be made in consultation with the venue using local radar and weather tracking apps on the day of the event. Timing of the rain call will depend on the venue’s policies as well as the extent of your required event setup. All decisions to move an event indoors are final.
VIII. CLIENT RESPONSIBILITIES.
a. You are responsible for the cost of replacement of any property or items lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed by you, your employees, guests, invitees, or agents at the wedding. You are not responsible for damage to any property caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of Just Marry! or its contractors, agents, workers, employees, or associates.

IX. INDEMNIFICATION. Each party (the “Indemnifying Party”) agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold the other party and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from and against any and all third party claims, losses, liabilities, damages, expenses, and costs, including attorneys’ fees and court costs, arising out of the Indemnifying Party’s (i) (gross) negligence or willful misconduct or (ii) its material breach of any of the terms of this Agreement. The Indemnifying Party’s liability under this Section shall be reduced proportionally to the extent that any act or omission of the other party, or its employees or agents, contributed to such liability. The party seeking indemnification shall provide the Indemnifying Party with prompt written notice of any claim and give complete control of the defense and settlement of the Indemnifying Party, and shall fully cooperate with the Indemnifying Party, its insurance company, and its legal counsel in its defense of such claim(s). This indemnity shall not cover any claims in which there is a failure to give the Indemnifying Party prompt notice, to the extent such lack of notice prejudices the defense of the claim.

This section shall survive the termination of the Agreement. Just Marry! assumes no liability due to the quality of items or services purchased for the Client. Just Marry! is not responsible for vendors goods or services, their timely delivery, or their availability.
XI. FORCE MAJEURE. Neither party shall be liable for delay or failure in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement if such delay or failure is caused by acts or occurrences beyond its reasonable control. The acts or occurrences that trigger the right of either Party to terminate this Agreement under the terms of this section include, but are not limited to: acts of God, war, government regulation (including governmental advisories, quarantines, and curfews), natural disaster, fire, strikes or other labor disputes (except for those involving Parties’ own businesses or personnel), shortage of adequate power or infrastructure, curtailment or disruption of transportation, civil disorder, terrorism and responses thereto, pandemics, epidemics or other national health emergencies, any act or occurrence creating a significant risk to the participants’ health or safety (as reasonably determined by both Parties), or other similar events beyond the reasonable control of the Party impacted by the Force Majeure Event (the “Impacted Party”).
The Impacted Party shall give Notice to the other Party as soon as practicable within ten (10) calendar days, or if the force majeure event occurs less than ten (10) calendar days prior to the date of the event, within forty-eight (48 hours) or as soon as practical (whichever is less), of the force majeure event stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue. The Impacted Party shall use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such force majeure event are minimized. In the event that the Impacted Party’s failure or delay remains uncured for a period of five (5) business days following Notice given by it under this section, either Party may thereafter terminate this Agreement upon five (5) business days’ notice to the other Party.
Should this Agreement be terminated according to the terms in this Section, Just Marry! will return to Client any payments previously paid by Client, less all of the following amounts which Just Marry! shall be entitled to retain: any non-recoverable and other out-of-pocket actual costs Just Marry! has paid or is obligated to pay to our vendors, suppliers, and subcontractors, and any actual costs (including labor) for which Just Marry! has otherwise incurred an obligation to pay, as of the time of the force majeure termination.
