Can you negotiate??

Recommended Posts

Flowers was the one thing where negotiations were very successful. What I did was tell them what I wanted, and they would give me a quote. If it was what I wanted but the price was too high, I simply said, wow this looks great but my flower budget is only $X. And they said ok we can take out this one tiny thing, like ribbons on the centerpiece vases, and then give you the price you are asking.

 

So it worked out well since I didn't ask for ribbons on the vases in the first place, and they went down in price a lot.

I think the general rule is EVERYTHING is negotiable when it comes to weddings. I like the way Lori went about it, because it doesn't insult the vendor by implying that they are over-valued; it just states what you are able to spend. Most vendors, if they are good, will work with your budget.

I negotiated the price down for everything....flowers, cake, music, rentals, transportation etc.... the only thing that was non-negotiable was the photographer but Juan actually gave us an extra 30min because of the transportation time between the church and Dreams

I've already signed the contract at my resort and it said $1,000 for flowers, which only included brides's bouquet, groom's boutoninere, flowers for the arch and rose petals. Not even MOH or BM or a centerpiece. Then, they sent me pictures from 3 different florists and told me to choose what I wanted or send a picture of what I want. How do they know how much it's going to cost?
