    This is such good advice & I will definitely start implementing an expiration date. The timetable after you’ve submitted your proposal can be so frustrating.
    I just want to say Thank You for being such a GREAT resource for us planners. Everything you’ve provided thus far has been extremely helpful. I’m glad I found you via Sage Wedding Pros.

    Such great advice!I hadn’t thought about putting expirations on proposals before, but this totally makes sense.

    Another place to put experation dates is on coupons – when I do wedding fairs or marketing events I usually hand out coupons for free consultations, 10% off planning packages, etc. The expiration date encourages potential clients to call sooner rather than later.

    Stumbled on your lounge while searching for seo for my website on destination weddings. This is an amazing blog. I really liked the expiration date on contract. Will implement this.

    Thanks a lot.

    […] You have spent a few hours of your time, maybe even days, in writing this proposal. Don’t let this go to waste. Wait at least a couple of days, or a maximum of one week, before contacting the bride for an update so you don’t appear too eager. But don’t let more than a week pass or the bride will think you are not that interested in pursuing this deal. Unless of course she informs you that she will be out of town and will not be able to give you feedback in a month or so. This will also give the bride an idea that you can constantly communicate with her if ever she gets you as her wedding planner. Also check out Debbie’s ideas on getting potential clients to make a decision. […]
