I've been receiving the same info and yes, it's extremely frustrating b/c you're budgeting for a wedding you don't know how much to budget for. It's not fair but I don't know how much control we have over this (and at this point it's close to none).
We're tackling the issue by putting all wedding details such as DJ, Photography, etc. on hold until we receive a price list for 2012. The only thing we've confirmed is the wedding package we want and this way we can prioritize if the prices go up more than what we can afford. Also, I made a preliminary spreadsheet with 2011 prices and added a 12% increase to all our have to's and want to's to get an idea of what our end budget could potentially look like. Granted I may be overestimating a little but I'd rather do that than underestimate. Based on the projection, I also divided up the main guest list into A, B and C and if the prices go up way more than expected, the guests are getting chopped off the list. Not sure if this helps but this is how we're coping with it.

Within minutes, she sent it over and I sent her a detailed email just brining her up to date on all the things I had aready mentioned to Ana.
She responds to me the next day and tells me that all the pricing that Ana had quoted me on (DJ, Photography, Lanterns, Ultimate Package) are all 2011 prices and that they will send me the 2012 prices as soon as they get them. Have any of you ran into this problem?
I dont think it is fair that they are chaning the prices if I have requested all the above based on the prices offered in the wedding brochure. Ana never mentioned the price change.
Have any of you had this problem?? So frustrated! Please help!!
