I need some advice…
Today I was on the website of my reception venue and I noticed that they have lowered their prices for 2011.
Is it possible for me to get the new 2011 rate even though I signed a contract for a different amount? My wedding is in 2011, so I should get the 2011 price right?

I would call them and see. They may lower it or work out some other deal. I’m amazed at the things you get just by asking for them.

One of the reasons we signed the contracts when we did was to lock in the price (which not all venues/caterers offer), but that was to prohibit facing any increase. It seems that many places are now discounting their prices, so it doesn’t hurt to ask. I honestly doubt they’ll give you the reduced rate, but good luck!

I’m happy to report that the venue added uplighting to my event to cover the price difference.

@Soon2BMrsMiles: Glad it worked out for you! It never hurts to ask.
