Go back to your TA and tell her about the difference you found in pricing and that you want her to find that price for you. If she can't meet your price then the rest of your wedding party and group will look for another TA. Watch how fast she moves, remember always she is providing you YOU with a service and she is making a commission off your service she is a service and will do what she can

Most of my guests booked through my TA; however, those with vacation clubs waited until they checked availability through their clubs.
I am finding that dealing with the travel arrangements has been the most stressful part of planning my wedding. I've had to "push" my TA more than I would have liked. If I would do anything different it would be researching and selecting a different travel agent.

I HOPE they will go to my TA...that is why I got a TA in first place so I won't have to worry about dealing with guests travel arrangements and she'll get the best deals for them.

Keep checking the prices and don't be afraid to ask for a better deal. Thanks for the price matching tip.

I guess this is directed to the TAs out there?

We called back the TA and she was on vacation somy FI spoke with the manager and she was very understanding and told us not to worry she would have an answer for us today as to how this would be dealt with. The price difference is around $240 per person. So yeah it is huge for people that are trying really hard to watch were their money is going.
We actually spoke with my FI uncle who is coming to the wedding and works for Air Canada and he said that Air Canada will want to be competive with their pricing so not to worry. I will keep you updated....
