    We only asked about the discount at our hotel for the wedding night. Maybe we are weird, but we just feel awkward asking lol.

    Holiday Inn Express chain offers military discounts (and AAA member discounts!)

    @Chelsea, I get it; but asking is just that...asking.

    It's not demanding or having an expectation/feeling entitled, etc.

    @ambrok oh I know, I think we are just weird. I don't see the harm in asking.

    Wonder Jewelers offers 15% off diamond jewelry and 20% off custom e-rings all the time as far as I know.

    This website seems to have a much more general list too:

    We take $500 off the total. Every little bit helps.

    Our venue advertised a military discount, so we were able to take advantage of that. My husband doesn't like to ask because he's worried it sounds like he's exploiting it just to save a few bucks. But if we see a place list it or mention somewhere he'll do it.

    Our dj gave us a military discount.

    @Chelsea I'm with you. I always hate asking and for some reason feel wrong so FH always asks instead. I'll only ask if it's advertised

    We haven't asked for a military discount on anything. FH hates asking for it and I never think to.

    Tommy Hilfiger gives 15% off, so does AC Moore & Michaels.

    My FH and I are getting married in Charlottesville, VA and our venue, caterer, & wedding planner are giving us discounts. My fiancé encourages me to ask for discounts.
