If you have read the price tag on your dream bridesmaid dresses or you’ve been given a quote for the flowers you want and you think it’s the absolute final price, think again. There are times when you can negotiate with wedding vendors so you can get a better deal on most things you need for your wedding.
You’re Buying More Than One Piece
If you are purchasing more than one thing from the wedding vendor you’ve chosen, this may be a great way to negotiate for a lower price. Many vendors will give discounts if you purchase several things from them, such as all of your bridesmaids’ dresses or flowers to fill multiple tables. Simply ask if they have a bulk discount and don’t be afraid to let them know you’re going to check with other vendors.
You’re Buying in the “Off” Season
If you’re having your wedding during what is considered the “off” season, you may be able to negotiate with vendors. Common off times include during the week and winter and fall, since fewer brides choose these times to get married. This means the vendors make less money and will be more willing to accommodate your budget.
