Wedding planning can be stressful! DJ Paul Michaels wants to make your planning process as effortless and fun as possible with this monthly Wedding News Digest. Below are articles with helpful Chicago Wedding tips, or a bit of laughter. Happy Wedding Planning! With warmer weather on the horizon, I thought it might be fun to add a theme to this month: DESTINATIONS!


Location, location, location. Venues are generally the first stop when beginning your wedding planning process. Many venues have contractual agreements with a variety of vendors, insurance requirements, specifications for date holds and more. Wedding-Spot compiles all of that information for you in their easy-as-pie search engine. You can enter in your guest count, type of dinner service, and if you plan on holding a ceremony on-site then BAM! Wedding-Spot will calculate a range of pricing. We love this tool!
