@DC_ChicagoBride:  as you have already signed the contract, I doubt they will be willing to negotiate the prices at this point.

I also read your other thread. Since they raised the prices I would ask them about it. If they can’t give you last year’s prices I would try to compromise with something. I know I talked to my venue on this – I gave up the dessert course (we just served wedding cake) for an extra hour of open bar.

From our experience, we did the negotiations before we signed the contract.  We booked our venue 23 months out from our date so there was nothing in it about the menu but we made sure that there were areas where we could make changes and had choices regarding the price.  We got lucky in that the venue will allow us to add or remove menu items and the price will change accordingly.

Also, our venue is the caterer and I found that this actually made it easier to negotiate.
