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

The knot has a great tool to help you get started.

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.

This year we have been so blessed to be able to grow our team here in Des Moines. After many interviews, we knew Leah was in the running right away. Her eloquent demeanor and inquisitive questions, we knew she was a very bright girl. Her upbeat personality, sweet words, and eagerness to learn solidified our impression of her. She was lovely from the first second. But, that isn't all. We knew she was family oriented, a hard worker, and eager to learn! (Gosh, we do love that!) 

Leah or more commonly known as, Nook Nook. (I mean how cute is that?!) <3 Teaches dance and her dance students call her this, so you can too. ;)

She loves Mac n' cheese, pizza and Pitbulls. If she could eat anywhere in Des Moines she would pick Blaze for pizza and Jethros for mac n' cheese. But, she eats more than comfort food! She loves cantaloupe and strawberries, too! 

AND GUYS...

She loves to travel!! - I mean, of course she does! Her favorite place to travel is NASHVILLE! - YES!!! We love Nash, and Denver, and NYC... well, you get it. She is a perfect fit for us! 

She shops at Target - <3 Hobby Lobby <3 - Rue 21 <3 - Dry Goods

If you find her at Starbucks, she'll be drinking a strawberry drink. I mean, she does love strawberries so... her current favorite Strawberry Acai Refresher.
