Why do you feel it is rude? You should never settle for anything you don’t want or can’t afford, especially if it is part of a preset package. If you don’t want something, speak up right away.

I do not think it is rude to ask at all!  You should get what you want.  Really, the worse they can do is say no.

Not rude at all. I definately plan to play hard ball with my reception venue. If I’m paying 4k in food alone they can definately work with me to make something things happen. Places jack up prices 90% of the time because they expect people to haggle with them a little.

It can never hurt to ask. Our venue had language about not bringing in outside wine and we had that changed even though it was in the “standard” portion of the contract and we might not even want to bring in wine-just did not want to feel restricted.

Are you bringing in an outside wedding cake or will they be providing it for you? A lot of places here charge hefty “cake slicing charges” anywhere from $3-8/pp so make sure they would not hit you with those.

Good luck with it,

It is not rude at all.. you are trying to customize your event.. you should feel like you can ask for anything.  When we were looking at venues we asked  LOT of questions.. can we get the price lower if we go with less selection at the bar, what if we don’t serve alcohol durring dinner, what if one of our meal selections is vegetarian….

The worst thing they can do is say no.., right?
