1. The deposit in which you placed to book the wedding can be transferred to a new date or held until a new date is made. If you are forever cancelling and not rescheduling me as your artist, the deposit will not be refunded.
2. If you are rescheduling, please reach out to me with your new date. I would need to be given the opportunity to rebook your services.
