It can be difficult for a couple to decide to book their wedding with a wedding planner or venue in a different country. Particularly if they haven't met. There's also a trust issue as the couple will be paying large amounts of money to someone they don't know.
One way to help with this is for the wedding planner or venue to take a
deposit by credit card
. As credit cards offer customer protection
amounts over £100 and under £30,000, it's one of the most secure ways
for a couple
to pay and have peace of mind.
Also, by paying at least some of the
payment by credit card, the customer is is covered for the entire amount
in case the wedding provider goes bust.

accepting credit cards will incur a small additional cost, however, if by
accepting credit cards you gain additional bookings
fees would more than pay for themselves.
