How and when do we pay?

We ask for a $500 deposit to Word of Mouth to confirm the event date. At least thirty days prior to the event, the client or their authorized representative must return a signed copy of our contract and/or a signed copy of the "cost summary" page from the proposal, along with a deposit of 50% of the total cost of services and equipment agreed to on that "cost summary" page. When final guest count is guaranteed, the final balance is due. We prefer MC/Visa and certified checks.
