Yep. Ask and you shall receive. Our venue, photog and officiant all gave us military discounts. There may have been others, but those are the 3 that I remember.

You, honestly, may not get them because he’s not active duty though. That’s up to the discretion of your vendors.

Agreed with zippylef. We have gotten military discounts on our officiant, honeymoon hotel, DJ, videographer and my dress, but Fiance is active duty, and that is generally the requirement we’ve seen. It never hurts to ask  though!

Fiance is Active Duty also, but yes, florist, venue, crafts, rentals, cake,  – it never hurts to ask.  you can google a site that gives a list of places

We’re getting food/venue REALLY cheap by holding the wedding on base at the O-Club. We didn’t think to ask the photographer!

My Fiance is active duty and I got a discount on my DJ and my caterer. Around 10 percent off both I think. I didn’t explicitly ask most vendors, but I always mentioned that the reason we were planning the wedding from so far away was the Fiance got restationed by the army, so they knew. I’ll also be scouring the exchange for some of my decorations, and we’re planning to buy all our alcohol on base.

We used military discounts for majority of our wedding! Not sure we could have have swung it any other way. 😉 I have a budget post somewhere on weddingbee.

I always forget to ask about this but when we were at the jewlers last week looking at bands they noticed the military id and gave him a great discount. Even on the Engagement Ring to my understanding. Can never hurt to ask I guess.

Very intersting. I never thought of possibly getting a military discount. Any bit if saving recieved sure do help a lot!

See our situation is a little tricky. Fh is active duty now, but by the time the wedding comes he’ll be a veteran. But i guess it still wouldnt hurt to ask.

Your right it doesn’t hurt to ask. You might be suprised.
