What is the difference between a wedding and a party when it comes to cost? Huge. But it doesn't always have to be and I've got some tips to help try bring down the cost.

After watching a tv show about weddings I learned in the US, potential customers enquiring about things like DJ costs and flower arrangements get quoted two different prices for the same thing.

The DJ offered a different price because he was automatically giving them what he claimed was a better package for the wedding, even though they just wanted the standard.
So try this. Call and ask about your wedding giving the date, and in a weeks time have someone else call asking about the same date for a party. See if the price lessens when you say it's just a birthday.

Customers at the flower shop were only shown larger arrangements than those asking about a party. If you think they are holding off on you with what they have to offer you can simply ask "do you have any other sizes?"

Pulling up to a dress boutique the couples who turned up in a Mercedes were told higher prices for dresses than the ones who arrived in a taxi. They see your car and sometimes they think your loaded. If you do go somewhere that doesn't have prices tags, park far away and you can always do tip number one an call later and say it's for a party. (except for your wedding dress of course)

I hope this helps and I hope you have a fun time wedding shopping.
