It never hurts to ask. We got a discount because we are booking off season and not having a lot of guests.

I say ask not want not!  When I started looking at places I would ask if they had discounts for students or law enforcement.  Some places said no and that was fine if they still had the best price and service then we went with them, but a lot of places did have discounts.  Plus we would tell them So and So told us about you so we wanted to check you out and they would usually give us a better deal because we were refered.  I say ask away, what are they going to do say no and not let you use their venue?!

The way I did a little bargaining was that my venue set at minimum food and beverage amount. It came out to be an obscure number, like $10743.33, (for example), so I asked for them to make it an even $10k and they did.
