Working With Vendors

How to Negotiate with Your Wedding Vendors

Remember that many vendors are small businesses, and for the most part they're suffering with the economic situation, too. "It's a buyer's market right now," says Adelee. "Everyone knows that. But you don't lose your humanity and decency. We had a bride who came in for multiple meetings and tastings, and then finally opted to go with someone else. It's fine to do a meeting, even two, but don't waste people's time." In other words, treat your vendors as you'd want to be treated. Be honest, and don't be afraid to ask for help. The worst they can do is say no.
