Help-Group or individual booking?

Also, how do you all feel about group rates. I'm afraid that if we lock in a group rate price and prices fall we'll be stuck. I'm trying to get the best prices for our guests. I heard that when booked separately they can purchase insurance that will change the price for them if rates go down, but they can't do this if booked as a group. Any past experiences with this would be great. (oh yeah I live in the United States)
One last question, I know this is getting long winded. How long in advance did you all book everything. I thought initial prices that came out for the next year always seemed higher than say rates that were 6-7 months out. In my head, I think they drop so they start selling rooms they haven't got rid of yet. I would ask my TA all of these things but she seems to be set on one idea. Thank you for all of your help and advice. I wouldn't know who to ask if it wasn't for you guys. Thanks

Are you attached to your TA? It might also be a good idea to shop around for a TA? I know we did, and I was glad too, as we were able to find someone who we really clicked with. I didn't realize before what an importan decision a TA actually is. Also, there are TA's on this site that would be able to help answer your questions.
Good Luck to you.
