Hello all! Just want to know how you would deal with a situation.
Couple #1 contacted me about a wedding day next year. I met with them, and held a consultation, went well.
Couple #2 contacted me about the same day, I met with her, consultation went well.
Couple#2 contacted me and had me customize a contract I am willing to accept.
Because couple #1 contacted me first, and their venue is much higher exposure for my business, I gave them first dibs. Bride accepted and stated her intentions to book.
Contract was send on Wednesday, couple emailed me Friday promising to have contract by Saturday night, It's Sunday now and no contract.
I don't want to lose both weddings, however I don't want to be too pushy with couple #1, because I am not even 100% sure at this point if couple #2 will still book with me, as it has been a week since getting there acceptance.
How should I proceed with placing a deadline on couple #1 without sounding too pushy or ahole like?
