Last weekend, we were interviewed by Wedding Wire!!
They asked us to help them help you on how to handle a “MaidZilla!”
So you know, when your friends love you JUST A LITTLE TOO MUCH…
Yeah, I mean we all want friends who will have our back no matter what! But, on the big day, how do you handle a tense situation?
ARE YOU PAYING TOO MUCH FOR YOUR WEDDING VENDORS?
Friends, let’s be honest! Does anyone really know how much a wedding costs? I mean, how could you? You’ve never done it before right? Or it was so long ago you can’t remember?
Well, we have joined with The Knot to bring you some pricing knowledge about the big scary word, BUDGET.
We hope that this information will help guide you to the national average price of a wedding, to educate you so when sifting through all the vendors and contracts during your planning process, you can have peace of mind that what you are paying is actually what you SHOULD BE PAYING.
And before, we go any further. One of the most important things you can do for your planning process is…
SET A BUDGET
And the second most important thing you can do is…
List what is most important to you.
What part of your wedding are you NOT willing to cut back on.?Then know everything else, may have to compromise to ensure your budget it kept.

Does this match with what you’re finding? If not, remember, you can allocate different amounts to categories that YOU THINK are a priority. And of course, your wedding planner is a great resource to help you digest all of this.

WE LOVE HER!
Kari, sometimes known as Karl (Her hubby calls her this)! loves cheesy potatoes! If she had to pick, purple is her favorite color. And she loves lions! Big secret...

Kari loves to travel to Northern Minnesota & Arizona! Now, this is the reason she fits so well here! We started planning weddings in Northern Minnesota at Lutsen Resort! The North Shore has just a special place in our hearts! It's our home! <3
She loves to shop at Dry Goods while sipping on a Carmel Latte from Starbucks carrying her Noonday Collection purse. See her favorite one here!
If Karl ;) isn't working with Mostly Becky or looking for a lion to pet, she will be outdoors!
She loves adventure! - A girl after our own hearts!
She says, her dream wedding inspiration is here at Mostly Becky. And, well we don't even know what to say now....
We just adore this girl here, and consider ourselves to have the best team ever, now that she has joined us! I mean look, this is a sweet note she just left us... (excuse me while I go dry my tears)!
Thanks Kari for being here! We wouldn't be us without you!
