I am so frustrated right now. At the beginning of the summer I have had Sept-Oct. completely booked with weddings. Now, I only have 4 weddings between the two months. Some couples have broken up and the others have moved their dates back until this Spring. I do have a non-refundable deposit, but I'm still going to miss a HUGE chunk of my paycheck those months. I've been in business for 1.5 years. Someone tell me how common cancelled weddings are. Is there a standard ratio that I need to plan on in the future? And then, tonight I drove over an hour to meet with a bride to discuss wedding photography. After I got there, she called and couldn't make it! I am even made my husband get off work early to watch my daughter so that I could get their on time. AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH.
