OMG – this videographer is an angel! What was supposed to be a $1200 package, is going to be only a $700 package now, and thats INCLUDING the $250 deposit already made, leaving $450 to be paid.
Esentially we’re getting all the same stuff, just no 5 minute music video – he’ll do the ceremony, and reception through the speeches and first dance. SO it’s not all day, but I don’t really need the cake cutting and stuff in it – the photographer will still be there for that.
So we’re still having on, and he was determined to get us something saying that every couple, no matter the budget should have something like this and he’s happy to make this exception once in a while for those who can actually really use it.
God Bless the wonderful vendors out there!

That’s great to hear, but I was looking for your answer in your original thread on this topic.
Oh well, I’m glad that it all worked out for you.
It goes to show that "negoitating" works!

Sweeney, that’s great! How really nice of your vendor. It’s a good thing you talked to him, rather than just cancelling. That’s not much more than the deposit you would have been out if you cancelled, is it?

And I bet it was because you were polite and cool about the whole thing too…sounds like a great vendor/bride relationship. Congratulations!

Yeah it was good, I actually wrote telling him I was going to cancel and that it was because the budget was getting out of control, and he offered. I didn’t ask for a discount or special attention at all. I know running a small business these days is tough – and if you make exceptions for one person who asks, you have to for others – but because he offered, I just couldn’t turn him down.
And yeah, it’s not much more then my deposit. I’m very happy to have found a genuinely nice vendor who has a heart.

Have you thought about doing the Cake Cutting right at the beginning of the reception- so you have it on video… before he goes?

Yeah I have thought about it – I think it’s a strong possibility – but like I said, I’m laid back about it. The photog will still be there, so either way – memories caught! 😉
