They are a Travel agent and super friendly, helpful, and they get awesome deals.

I know exactly what you are going through! We have been dealing with countless travel agents to try to secure pricing. The difference in pricing from each of them have been OUTSTANDING - its absolutely rediculous. Finally we were able to find a great day through one - and we are using Westjet Vacations. As we have family flying for 2 separate provinces and wanted to have each plane arrive at relatively the same time. Great group rate quote etc... only problem to get the early booking bonus we must all pay in full by October 15th - The wedding is in late April. Due to the economy some of our guests are unable to swing the payment this soon and will hopefully be able to find something closer to the date. Decided we had to just quite worrying - people will find a way to come - and if they don't.. not much we can do.
The only problem is our TA does not do any type of coordinating of the wedding. We are now responsible for contacting the Hotel Coordinators. We are getting married at the Gran Caribe Real in Cancun. It has been a headache trying to get any type of answers from their coordinators. We are also having our wedding at their new Catholic Chapel - and were told we must deal directly with the Church. We again, have not heard anything. It is quite a stressful time - but in the end.. I'd rather be planning this than a wedding at home. Atleast that's what i keep telling myself.

But we negotiated and had her call the airline and they ultimately agreed to extend it by like 7 months - the booking deadline was August 2009 in the end! So try to be more forceful - and if that doesn't work, get another TA, because there are TAs out there who WILL be more reasonable!
