    So I think I'm making some progress.  I'm not going to keep talking about it until I actually pick a resort, because my mind has changed about 15x.  The problem I'm having currently is not being able to get prices for April 2016.

    You shouldn't have much problems now, should you? I got prices in April 2014 for January to May 2015.

      This is up for debate.  Some say yes, some say no.  Still working on this.

        So I'm having the opposite problem that most people have with Travel Agents.  I heard how it was hard to get a good TA so I messaged quite a few.  Some did indeed bomb.  But now I had 2-3 who are just the sweetest thing, and I feel like such a tire kicker knowing that I have to say no to two of them eventually.

          So I missed page 3 entirely I think where you guys all had an exchange about the colour orange!  I've pretty much committed to that colour.  I'm debating the other colours, but I know my bouquet will be orange and white.  

           

          EDIT: It's impossible to post pictures from my work computer, it's funky with message boards.

          I'd pick one ASAP and advise the others. It's a lot of work to not get your business. Just to be fair to them. Maybe that's to sweet of me hehe.

            Ya, I just got off the phone with my mother and she told me it's "the name of the game" when I said I felt bad about the TAs.  I have a bleeding heart though, I generally always care what people feel.  Regardless, I think I'm very close to the decision.  I intend to try to get an answer out of him tomorrow when we come home from the bar after St P's.  I'll let you know how it goes!  I will of course re-confirm when he's sober.

            I just know how much work they put in so if you know you only intend to use one, I would feel bad to drag it out. That's all. Of course it's name of the game. I just wouldn't get them doing months and months work for nothing :)

            And of course this is none of my business lol you do need to feel confidence in the one you choose.

              That definitely hasn't happened. I have gotten quotes/recommendations from three. Then specific resort group rates from two. I'm about to make my choice so that will be the end of the line. It just sucks because they are both nice. Can't use them both though.

              Great story! I loved that you shared some of your favorite songs, I just listened to them all! Thanks for sharing!

              Thanks lady, I was kinda doubting that I included so many songs. I'm glad even one person enjoyed listening!
