HATB Terms and Condition
We want your Myrtle Beach Wedding to be the best it can be!
Experience has taught us, that any “glitch” imaginable is possible and could cause stress on both the brides and grooms or on the “Hitched on the Beach” professionals. In order to ensure your wedding is as perfect as it can be, we advise you take the time to read our guidelines and procedures.
Deposits: The initial $100 deposit to reserve your date and time will be credited toward your final total costs. The deposit is non-refundable. Should your plans change and the wedding is rescheduled, we will apply the deposit toward another date, if that is within 6 months of the original wedding date. If your wedding is booked within 30 days of the wedding date, full payment is required at time of booking and is non-refundable.
Because we guarantee your date and time, and therefore must turn down other wedding parties, the following cancellation policies for payments above and beyond the deposit will apply.
Cancelled within 30 days of the wedding date: No refunds, but may be applied toward a future date within the same calendar year. Cancelled 31-60 days prior: No refund on deposit, 50% refund of balance paid. Non refunded amount may be applied toward a future date within the same calendar year. Cancelled 61+ days prior: No refund of deposit, balance refunded less 5% processing fee. Inclement weather: In the case where inclement weather (rain) prevents us from having an outdoor wedding, we will make every effort to assist you in procuring an indoor venue (possibly at the hotel where you are staying, or at the reception site), or to reschedule to another day or time. Fortunately, this rarely occurs, but we will work with you in every way possible to have a beautiful wedding, and to have great wedding photos.
Late For Wedding Policy:
At Hitched at the Beach we do everything to make your wedding day extra special. At the same time we all must realize that there are many other brides that deserve the same treatment. Do to scheduling restraints we must demand that you and your wedding party arrive at the wedding site in a timely manner. Therefore we must enforce the following policy. Brides arriving between 1 minute and 15 minutes late will be charged an additional $0.00 dollars. Brides, grooms, wedding parties or any other cause for delay beyond the 15 minute grace period will be charged $5.00 per minute late fee. The bride will be advised of this accrued late fee just prior to the ceremony to avoid any discrepancies.
Day of Wedding Information:
We allow one hour for your wedding, in addition to set-up time, to include pre- and post wedding photos (unless you have contracted for additional photography time. We will provide detailed directions to the wedding site if it is not at the hotel where you are staying, and we will touch base with you the day of the wedding. PLEASE be sure all of your guests and bridal party have the specific directions and time – as we often use a specific beach access that allows ample parking and privacy on the beach. And, while it may seem that the distance is not far, please take into consideration that Myrtle Beach is a vacation spot and traffic can be difficult. Allow ample time for travel.
It will be helpful to the Officiant if the Bride and Groom will sign all three copies of the wedding license prior to arrival. The Officiant will complete one copy and return
