Hey girls –
For those of you who commented on my thread about possibly postponing the weddig, just wanted to let you all know that we decided to go ahead and do it. So, we are postponing our 10/08 wedding to sometime in March or April of 2009. We are meeting with our reception venue this week and my big question is, should I expect them to raise the menu prices on me? We booked the venue in 2007, so we got 2007 prices for our 2008 wedding. But now that it is 2008 and we are booking for 2009, will we have to pay 2008 prices? For those of you who have postponed or booked your wedding really early, did you get the earlier prices or did you have to deal with raised prices? 🙁 thanks for your help!!

I got early prices for my wedding in Jan of ’09, ask your vendors, the worst they’ll say is no…

I think that it depends on your vendor. I know when we signed the contract for the reception hall (who is supplying the food also), they told us that their pricing is only guaranteed for 1 year (most places only did 6 months). They said that usually there is no change in prices, at least nothing drastic. They also told us that if there was a change in prices, they would negotiate a price based on our original contract price and their new menu price. You should definetly ask them.

Even when I was just touring a site, they warned me that the prices would rise for 2009! One place actually had the pricing for the next year and the difference wasn’t huge so maybe they’ll make a deal with you since you had already booked with them.

they warned me as well. they told me the standard rate raise was $5 but since I booked early, they charged me only $2.

hey you! for me, they told me that as long as i booked it before they raise prices i will get the 2007 price for 2009. just ask and them let them know your situation…maybe they’ll be sympathetic to it.
