You asked: "Can we negotiate on prices with suppliers?"
YOUR ETIQUETTE DILEMMAS SOLVED
Hawke & Hughes wedding planner Emma Zamani-Hawke says: "A
large chunk of your budget will go on hiring a venue, so
negotiating with the owners could save you a sizable amount."
"Think about dates as this is the easiest way to get a saving.
Going 'off-peak' from October to March or booking on a weekday will
give you good bargaining power."
THE ULTIMATE WEDDING CHECKLIST
"When it comes to other suppliers, there' s no harm in asking.
Even if they're reluctant to offer a monetary saving, perhaps they
could give you an additional extra - the photographer could offer a
canvas print, for example."
"The more you purchase or book from a particular supplier the
better position you'll be in."
