As much as it pains me to admit this, when planning a wedding there is more to it than just the food.

All jokes aside, I am well aware of that fact. We actually take a great deal of care when it comes to working out all of the small details of putting together your dream wedding.

When most of us think about getting married, we think of being surrounded by friends and family as we walk down the aisle in that drop dead gorgeous wedding dress that we spent many hours and late nights finding on Pinterest​.

The reality is, there are SO many different things to consider. Loads of planning, many vendors to meet with and loads of conversations to have. Here I will outline a few steps that can make this process go as smooth (and fun!) as possible.

Hiring a Wedding Planner in The Berkshires:

I highly recommend working with either a planner or a day of coordinator. Believe me, after working on many, many weddings and parties, this step is really a must, 9 out of 10 times. The planner/coordinator will become the middle person, filtering only the important questions your way and will do all of the leg work. Most importantly, a good planner will ensure your wedding day goes as planned and on time. I encourage you to do your homework here and have a few conversations to see who you “click with”, this is important down the road.

Bonus: Try to find a planner that doubles as a designer

This is the reason that my go to planner for my events is always Magdalena of Magdalena Events.
