I'm dealing with Laurie and she's been pretty good so far. I'm booking my hotel and air separately (not with a tour operator) and flying with west jet, so I think the rates are seriously only held for however many people I put the deposit down for right away. I'm only putting it down for the required 10 people. My logic is that if peeps wanna wait forevs to book, its their issue to find a good rate - not mine!

I was screaming "BUT IM THE BRIDE"
I think Air Canada Vacations quote was good for 4 weeks. By the time I finally sorted out Signature screw up and decided to go with AC, my guests only had 2 weeks to put down their own deposits. Everything worked out great that way. It sort of forced my guests to come up with a decison. Which I'm happy I did because I hear other brides complaining alot about their "undecided" guests.
Also, Tara Hartman is amazing at romantic planet!
