Make Your Wedding Budget Go Farther by Negotiating With …


Your wedding is perhaps the biggest celebration you will be a part of. And why not, it is a celebration of a new beginning and new life. To make your wedding the most it can be, here are a few tips that will stretch your budget.

Stick To The Budget

A vendor such as a photographer may offer to give you a special package deal if you add more options. Make sure and think about if it is going to cost you more and if it is really necessary. Weigh your options on what is most important in your budget and don’t change your limit on the less important items.

Compare Vendors

Find out what other vendors are offering for prices. Consider this when talking to vendors and make sure and ask what other costs there will be after everything is said and done. Make sure and compare apples to apples. For instance you may be talking to a videographer that merely gives you the footage of your wedding and charges $750 and another vender that edits the footage in a more cinematic fashion that charges $2,400. Both are totally different, on both prices may be consistent with what the vendor services are.

Book Early – Book Intelligently

Often times vendors get slammed in the popular wedding seasons. In colder places the summers are more popular, and in the not so cold places the spring time is more popular. By booking well in advance you will get vendors who aren’t as much in demand and may offer more reasonable prices. Book late and they may give you an outrageous price because they know they have nothing to loose. Also consider having your wedding on a Friday or even on a weekday if possible. Wedding places and vendors oftentimes have a discount on days outside of the weekend.

Use Your Friends And Family

Your friends and family may have vendors they recommend. Also you can go to the web to see portfolios or pictures of what you are looking for. If you have a particularly crafty friend, why not put them in charge of decorations. If you have a family member that is baker, put them in charge of the wedding cake. Even if they aren’t the one making it, they will know the market better and will have a better chance of getting a good deal. Often times family and friends are anxious to help if you only ask.

At the end of the day your wedding is your more most joyful union. You will want to do everything you can to make it such. Oftentimes the planning process and budgeting can be overwhelming. Make sure and give yourself plenty of time to plan for your wedding. Be smart about how you spend your money but also remember that you get what you pay for. Vendors are there to facilitate you and not vice versa. Find the vendors that fit your style and personality.
