Thank you Wendy for the insight. This is very helpful. I am going to do what you suggested. Tell her what I am interested in then have her email me an invoice.
As it gets closer to my date I will confirm the add ons.

I was excited and tried to go off script and she asked me to wait until the end to ask any questions. I asked her some questions at the end, such as whether the Beaches Island BBQ Party is still on Friday evenings since it looks like I will only have a group of 9 rooms and won't get the "free" welcome/ reception dinner, and she said she'd have to call the resort directly to find out about that; I asked her to do so, but I never heard back from her. I really wish I had used a travel agent versus calling the Beaches 800 number to make my initial booking, but I know it will all turn out fine. I am really grateful for all the good advice, suggestions and inspiration from everyone on this site. YAY!
I asked about the floral upgrades, and she said she could look into it if I gave her a code from the floral brochure, acting like it was a hassle. Try not to get frustrated, and don't pay for anything during your consultation call. Let her draw up an invoice and email it to you to think about. Then you can see how much all the extras add up to so you can weigh the pros and cons of the add-ons before calling back to finalize anything. I think I remember reading in earlier posts that you really don't have to finalize anything until you arrive unless you are upgrading flowers, but I defer to the past Beaches brides who can definitely guide us better
