6 Tips for Bargaining with Vendors

Posted on March 21, 2012 by Big Dot

Easily get the the best deal on flowers, venues, music and more with these 6 tips:

  1. Set a budget. Vendors are better equipped to help you out when they know what you can spend.
  2. Pick your party theme, then buy all of your decorations in one place. BigDotOfHappiness.com offers themed party packs and free personalization so you can make the event YOU-nique!
  3. Know what you need. Don’t get sucked into things you don’t really need, like a coat check for a summer event. Ask what packages your vendor can offer and pick one that has things you need - then ask about the cost of extras.
  4. Adopt a friendly but firm attitude. Being polite and assertive helps you and your vendor when working out the details - and encourages the vendor to come up with creative solutions for your budget.
  5. Be prepared to walk away. If negotiations aren’t working out, politely say “No, thank you” and continue looking for a different vendor.
  6. Know what’s in season. This applies to everything from flowers to food. Order what’s in season to cut costs - there will be no need to ship special orders just for your event.
