Anyone do/doing an offseason wedding in their area like me, February in Michigan, and have any informaiton on discounts you can get from vendors? I’m curious to see if this is true and vendors really will give you good deals, and how much? It really makes a difference in budgeting! Any super special tips on how to go about asking other than just setting a number and asking for it?

Answer – YES. I got married in March in Ohio. For my ceremony site it was about $1000 less, for my reception site it was about $500 less. It can also be less if you do it earlier in the day. With the florist, it was more about choosing flowers that were in season to save money (you will not get peonies in Michigan in February). Honestly, I have found that asking if they have an off-season discount is the best way to start that conversation. Most will. Some might knock $100 off, some might look at you like you’re crazy. Either way, it’s money saved. Good luck!
