Fees: what if you don’t get paid?

evelyn @ 11:23 am

I’ve never pursued an unpaid funeral fee, except possibly when I think it might have been an undertaker’s mistake.  But if you have a payment routine as described in the previous post, this problem will rarely happen.

Unpaid wedding fees are different.  I wait a fortnight for them to come back from honeymoon, then pounce.  Usually it transpires that the best man had all the envelopes and forgot about them, or they were left in someone’s sporran and only found by the kilt-hire shop the following week.

Only once was I let down completely over a wedding fee, and in that case it turned out that the middle-aged couple involved had also left church fees unpaid, entire reception bill unpaid, and skipped off abroad on honeymoon.  They never came back.
