There are really only two ways, that make sense. You can wait and see if he offers, or you can inquire as to his rates, not at all expecting a discount – same as any other vendor.

We used both of the methods that lola2011 references.  For example, for our reception venue (a private club), we asked how much it would cost to rent.    The owner, who is a friend, gave us a number that was way below what he would normally rent it for.  Other friends approached us to volunteer their services.

@IAmLemondrop: We did the same thing as PP’s. FI’s aunt and uncle own a winery, so his mom called them up and asked about pricing. His aunt offered us CUSTOM wine (I mean, with our own label/pic of us on it) for 8 dollars a bottle (plus free delivery because she’s coming to our wedding anyways).
