We have a package deal with a minimum number of people.  We were able to negotiate that number down by 5, basically saving us about $500.

They may have more bargaining flexibility with a friday or sunday, or maybe off-season.

Yes, you can negotiate. We  negotiated the cost of our ceremony site (made it an even number) and the cost of wine service (half off). You also have to figure out what are important must haves and items that you can care less for.

I.e. our venue included cake, but we decided to bring in our own cake and they credited us.. saving us a couple hundred bucks. We also modified open bar to tab bar, saving us a few thousand. You can probably negotiate costs of meals (maybe) and/or passed horsdourves.. good luck!
