Meridian Law Attorney Gives Presentation on Wedding Law

Meridian Law attorney and somewhat-recently-married-man, Robert D. Martin, recently presented a seminar on tort and contract issues that often arise in wedding planning. The presentation was a part of the Tennessee Bar Association’s Wedding CLE held on March 29, 2017.

Robert spoke to a room full of attorneys about how to deal with conflict that may arise when a parent or guardian is paying the bill for services provided for the benefit of the bride and groom. His presentation also addressed the legal requirements to officiate weddings in Tennessee, liability issues that may arise from serving alcohol to wedding guests at home weddings, and how to deal with vendors who do not perform their contractual obligations satisfactorily, or wedding parties who refuse to pay for services after the matter. Robert gave severalexamples of specific provisions to include in vendor contracts to prevent issues down the road.
