Supplier hunting for our wedding was fun. Visiting bridal fairs is for me the best way to snag discounts without asking for it, Since all the suppliers are packed in one venue to boast their services and couple clients can cherrypick which one is the best choice.
In my work place where i have several established contacts, its fairly easy to get suppliers: florist, makeup artists, bridal gown designers and such.
But I refuse. Because weddings also mean milking from the couple so my fiance and I agreed upon paying for the services and NOT demanding discounts.
When you ask for a discount, you’d get a discounted service as well.
