just gotta remain firm and make decisions when they are not around.  for example someone who says “book my friend” you say “thanks, i’ll think about it”  they follow up with you and you say “oh thanks, but i ended booking somewhere else.”  end of story.

Welcome to the wonderful world of weddings. I love weddings, but they bring out the best and worst in people. You just have to stick to your guns and give people a “thanks but no thanks..”

Agree with PPs. You can always ‘consider’ their offers, but decline to say you’ve decided what/who you’re going with. We’ve had to do this with friends/family as well, and I say I’d much prefer my guests to be guests, not having to work at my wedding (and also, a contract with a vendor is much easier to deal with if something goes wrong vs. trying to get $ back from Aunt Martha when your cake doesn’t show up).

thank them graciously for their suggestions and firmly tell them that you’re actually doing something else. 

Time to move away from being passive and laid back, to assertive.
