How did you negotiate??

If you don't mind sharing, how did you negotiate with your resort/vendors on certain things? What did they do to help you stay within budget and was there something they didn't budge on?
I'm not really the negotiating type so I'm trying to figure out what's the best route for these kinds of things?

I am not flexible on things that affect my guests experience. I don't mind spending money on the band, the flowers and the food - because those are the things that people remember.

So if there's something you're dead set on, don't be afraid to send a TA after them and try to get the price down. These things really are negotiable in my opinion. If, like in my case, they say something will cost you such and such and you really aren't that concerned about that portion of the wedding - it's ok to just skip it altogether. But I see no problem with asking how you can get something for cheaper if their quoted price is too high for you. I've found nice ways to ask people to lower their quote without being "aggressive" about it. If their quote for flowers is too much, just ask "Would it cost any less if we made them a little smaller or took this kind of flower out? I was hoping to only spend X on them". Usually they'll be accommodating if they think their only options are to lower their price or lose your business entirely.
