Bess- Florida Wedding Assistant

Now that La Casa Toscana is open for business we needed more help around here!

Oh wait did you miss it?

LA CASA TOSCANA IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

Yes, it is a new venue here in Fort Myers, Florida. This private estate hosted 3 weddings, and now is open to the public. We are so honored to be the exclusive planners for the home owners! What exciting news!

But, our news DOES NOT STOP there. We are so pleased to introduce to you our newest WEDDING ASSISTANT, BESS.

Bess is one of our Florida wedding assistants. She was born and raised in SWFL. And we are so excited to have her.

Bess, but those who know her well call her Bessie can be found hanging out with cows, her favorite animal. Or any agriculture, really. She is very involved in 4H and does amazing things here in Florida. She is driven!

One of the most wonderful qualities we noticed about her the first time we met her was her punctuality. She was and has always been early.

Bess dreams of traveling, anywhere really. She does not care, as long as she is going somewhere. Her dream wedding is simple, but filled with dancing surrounded by people she loves. If you ask, her favorite Starbucks drink is a Green Tea Frappucino. But, you’ll probably find her loading up her backpack for her next adventure.

How to Handle a "MaidZilla"

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?

We’re sharing our thoughts and ideas here, you DON’T WANT TO MISS IT!

The Average Cost of a 2017 Wedding

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.


Below is the AVERAGE price of wedding vendors for 2017.

Sourced from theknot.com

TOTALING $43,162

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.

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)!

Working for Moslty Becky and her company has been such a pleasure! She is a hard worker, enjoys what she does, makes her clients happy and gets the job done. I have appreciated being influenced by her and her knowledge. I hope to continue to work with her. She is for sure my number one pick in sharing with people who are in need of a wedding planner.
