Questions? Answers!

These are the most frequently asked questions. If you have other questions, don't hesitate to call me. There is never any obligation to ask a question.
 What if I need to change my wedding date?

The booking fee covers one date change. As long as you have your ceremony within one year of the date that you contacted me to make a reservation, you won't pay another booking fee.

Can you do a wedding next week?

Sure, I can do that. Ask me if the date and time is open. If so, I'd be happy to do your ceremony. If the wedding is within the week I will waive the booking fee.

Why is there a booking fee?  Is this like a deposit?

A. Sometimes things come up. Should a situation arise (like military deployment), or should you change your mind about getting married after I have sent the files, I am compensated for them and for any time spent planning your ceremony. I ask that you be courteous and notify me of cancellation or postponement as soon as possible.There is no contract and you owe nothing more. There is no problem, I'm thankful that you took the time to let me know.

B. The booking fee is not a deposit.  It allows me to send you all the files you need. Basically you are paying for the customizing package, the instruction, and the time I will spend on it. The booking fee is required to get on the calendar except for short notice weddings.

Are there ever any other fees or charges?

Possibly, but nothing extra if you live in Lincoln. If you live outside Lincoln there will be a trip charge. I use MapQuest or Google Map to determine distance. I charge mileage one-way, from my location to yours. There are no other fees and no contract to honor if you postpone or cancel.

Do you do weddings with no religion?

Yes, I enjoy civil ceremonies. They can have no mention of religion at all, or you can have a generic blessing at the end to satisfy family. The content of your ceremony is totally up to you.

Can I book a ceremony in 18 months?

I prefer not.  I usually make reservations for up to a year in advance. It's just a preference but I like shorter bookings,  6-10 months or less.

Can we meet you before the ceremony?

Yes, of course. Usually I agree to meet couples at a coffee shop. Since I work out of my home and I have dogs, and grandchildren around at any given time. Its best I go out. If you like I can come to your place.

How much is a ceremony only?

As of 2013 ceremonies are $125. In addition if your ceremony is short notice (within the week) I will waive the additional booking fee. I have also performed same-day ceremonies. Of course these are not customized as no files for personalizing can be made available.

Can I pay by credit or debit card?

Yes, I have a PayPal account where you can use a credit or debit card. Once we have discussed your date and you want to book there are payment options. You may send a check or Money Order directly to Linda Harris, or I will give you my account information and you can go to and pay your booking fee. Make sure I have your email address so I can send the receipt and files.

What About Payments to You?

You may send payments in advance of the ceremony. There are no arrangements for payment after the ceremony. The balance is due at the time of service.
