- Wedding: June 2011
I have no clues how to negotiate with my ceremony venue. The package is $800 for 15 guests. The package includes: officiant, cake, fruit & cheese platter and sparkling wine. The venue is in a backyard garden of the officiant’s house.
However, now my guest list has more than 15 guests. I have 7 additional guests. The owner/officiant will charge more. Don’t have the additioanl cost yet…but sounds like she wants to make a profit on additional guests…
How do I approach her to keep my price at $800? Should I ask her NOT to prepare the food? Or ask her about the breakdown of the service and food in the package so I have a better idea how much she will charge me for extra?
But I am concerned about her attitude b/c she will be the one to perform my ceremony…maybe she will get offended and just be like “whatever” as my officant.
How should I make my next move? E-mail or phone call?
Need some help here! Thanks a lot!
