When it comes to wedding planning, most brides are at least somewhat concerned with finding reasonable prices. Since most brides end up spending more than anticipated, we’ll share some price shopping suggestions in today’s post.
Saving money doesn’t mean settling for less!
Brides usually think that less money means less wedding. It’s important that you realize that this isn’t always the case. If you spend the time to find the right wedding vendors, you’ll be able to get far more for your money. So it will take more time, but it will be worth it.
The most important suggestion we have is to meet with several wedding vendors before you make your choice. This takes more time but you can be sure that you find the vendor that best meets your needs. You can always find someone that will be willing to work with your budget.
Don’t be Afraid to Say No
If you find a vendor you love but can’t afford them, don’t be afraid to say no. It’s better to find a better match than to go into debt.
Negotiation: It doesn’t hurt to ask!
The first step to negotiating price is to make it clear to your potential vendors how much you are able to spend. In many cases, the vendor won’t even have to make a price cut. Most vendors have budget friendly options.
If you can’t afford the asking price don’t be afraid to offer a lower price. Many vendors would rather take less money than lose you as a client all together. Be respectful and thank them if they reject your offer.
As you are working with your wedding vendors don’t forget to be peasant. If you treat your vendors well, they will return the favor and your wedding will be more enjoyable.
