- Wedding: June 2013
I think my sell out price would be at least 35% off, upgrades (i.e. extra apps, fancy linens, etc), and additional costs incurred by changing dates with any other vendors. Not sure what kind of venue you’re using, but if it’s something like a hotel I would ask for a free room/upgrade for that evening as well. Just remember, your venue stands to lose an entire day of business if you don’t agree to the switch, so get everything that you can.
At this point I would do it 100% I’m a year out so I think my other vendors could accomodate. I’d tell the venue to let me call all my other vendors, see if they could accomodate then, if the venue composated me enough that I felt the hassle was worth it, I would do it for sure ex: upgrade menu at no extra cost, free dessert table etc. Saving money has never been so important to me as it is now that I’m planning a wedding lol
I would need a better deal than $10 off a person to go to the trouble of changing everything. I figure my time is worth a lot more than that.
Worst case? He says no. Which is really no skin off your back – you didn’t need/want to change to begin with, right? That’s all the owner.
You still haven’t addressed whether or not this negatively impacts your VIPs and other guests. When are you getting married as it stands?
