Perfect day ... follow these tips for wedding success



1. Butter up potential suppliers.

Try to begin any negotiation with a bit of banter so you establish a rapport with those you're dealing with. The more points of connection you make with them, the tougher they will find it to price gouge you later.


2. Don't reveal your bottom line too soon.

You may have £3,000 to spend on your venue, but the sales manager doesn't need to know that the minute you walk through the door. Leave yourself some room to negotiate.


3. Do your homework.

The worst thing you can do is head into a supplier meeting with no concept of the going rate for services. Arm yourself with hard numbers (friends who've tied the knot already and Google will help).


4. Play suppliers off one another.

The basic rule here is to get quotes from multiple suppliers - even if you love the first one you meet with. This will allow you to go back to your first choice and ask if they can do better.


5. Always negotiate face-to-face.

Talking money can be uncomfortable, but resist the temptation to email asking for a better deal. It's a billion times easier for the supplier to say no when they aren't looking you in the eye.


6. Don't get swept up in the romance of the moment.

Planning your wedding is magical, but remember to be a savvy businessman which means working to get the best deal possible, even on an item you love.


7. Ask for extras to get the deal done.

Sometimes a supplier can't budge on the price tag itself but can throw in additional items or services to sweeten the deal for you. It can't hurt to ask.( thesun.co.uk )
