In this downloadable pdf I’m taking you behind the curtain of my business to show you how I build a wedding proposal and itemized invoice.
Writing a proposal is a commitment. And there’s no guarantee our work will result in a booking. So we push it off. And that’s not good for business!
Proposals should not be painful.

Here’s what you get:
0.1 The Anatomy of A Wedding Proposal explains how I approach the body of a proposal; these are the details I share with customers prior to booking.
0.2 A Real Wedding Proposal shows you how I transform my template into a custom proposal for a real wedding with an $11,000 floral budget.
0.3 The Wedding Invoice is itemized to correspond with the proposal…Yes, these are my real prices and invoice for a real wedding!
0.4 Presenting The Proposal explains how I present a proposal to a potential client via e-mail including an e-mail template which you can copy or modify to suit your own style.
0.5 A Wedding Proposal Template which you can use as a model to create your own custom template to reflect your company’s unique voice. You can apply this approach to any current proposal software programs you may already use. You do not need special software, however, to create a beautiful, branded proposal.
Note: The proposal format I present here can be used with any software you’re currently using. This is not special proposal software. I’ll show you how you can create your own templates using Word or Pages. The course is delivered as a pdf.
A lot of time and preparation goes into a proposal before booking an event and over the years I’ve learned how to streamline my pre-booking process while still delivering a personalized quote for my customers. Click to get it here.

“I have just spent my morning enjoying your tutorials and loving your course templates….
I have been hating proposals for five years now because I put so much work and detail into them. Your templates have inspired me to just simplify and I love it!
I tried a bridal software program last week and it ended up being more work for a result that I was unhappy with.
Staying inspired and growing as a designer and a company has been so much easier with websites and facebook pages such as yours. It has encouraged me to keep seeking ways to get better and grow as an artist and business person. Thank you for all you do and much success in the coming year!” -Allison Schrade

Quick tips to starting proposals:
1. Give yourself a deadline to write and send proposals for new clients. Try to aim for 14 days from the time they first contact you to the time they sign a contract and send a deposit.
2. Likewise, give yourself a deadline on how much time you’ll dedicate to a proposal. I think less than 2 hours is a good goal. (Even with a template a good, customized proposal takes time. Consider 1 hour to generate a proper invoice, 1 hour for proposal side.) A proposal should be professional. It should be representative of you/your work/your brand. Proposals should not be painful.
