I love what I do. So, I am always looking to help out my couples within the wedding planning process. As vendors, we have been through the wedding day so many times and we have seen a lot of different things, good and bad. I recently stumbled on some video of a conference I participated in a few years ago and my friend and colleague Eileen Breveglerei of Breveglerei Photography gave probably the most valuable advice to brides in attendance that I could ever offer.

It is so true! The best films are the ones where the bride and her bridesmaids are ahead of schedule, relaxed and having fun. Do yourself a favor and schedule your hair appointments at least one hour earlier than you originally planned. You will not regret it!

I met May’s Vendor of the Month at the Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club‘s tasting this past winter. Barrington Bites is a mini cupcake boutique in Great Barrington that provides brides and grooms a phenomenal option to customize their wedding plans.

Sherri Gorelick and Wendy Weinberg have been in business for just over a year and their popularity has grown exponentially over that time. Their slogan “Big Flavor, Small Bites” speaks the truth as they take the guilt out of having a sweet snack or dessert. Their mini-sized cupcakes are the perfect addition to your wedding menu or dessert bar. Every flavor that I tried melted in my mouth. At the tasting, I was able to sample a peanut butter cup and a mocha hazelnut mini cupcake and they both delicious.

Barrington Bites collection includes traditional flavors like vanilla and chocolate, but their variety really makes their product stand out. Their selection includes over 40 varieties including pumpkin, caramel apple, gingerbread, toasted coconut and the Elvis (chocolate banana cupcake with a peanut butter buttercream). Sherri and Wendy’s retail space is located at 31 Railroad St. in Great Barrington, and at the time of this writing, is open for limited hours from Thursday through Sunday.
