We paid for our honeymoon accommodation a few months ago but I was reviewing our booking today and noticed that they’re having a MASSIVE sale for their third anniversary in business. I emailed asking if they’d lower our rate to the sale cost and they said yes. WOO HOO!!! They refunded me over $750!

@crookedframe:  Nicely done!

@beeintraining:  We booked our caribbean cruise about 8 months out with Carnival. During the months leading up to the cruise, the price dropped by $400, so I filled out a refund request and got the money back!

Also, a co-workers mother offered to do our wedding cake/cupcakes. We paid $135 for a small round cake, 90 cupcakes and an annivesary cake. It was delicious and saved us about $200.

Following the advice of bees, I had a running tab for alcohol with the open bar at my afternoon reception. Took my chances on this rather than paying a flat rate of $23 for each adult.

Bar tab was only about $650, as opposed to the $1100 we would have paid with the flat rate.

Just choosing a Sunday rather than a Saturday saved us a ton of money.
