We pride ourselves on our exceptional track record as wedding planners in Barcelona to the classiest and most discerning of international couples.
Here is what our past clients had to say about the way we work.
ANDREA & MARCO
Asking Lauren and Elaine to share in our special day was the best decision we made when planning our destination wedding. Marco and I knew we wanted to do a destination wedding in Barcelona. Given our relatively short engagement (6 months) and the fact that we lived in the US, we planned to travel to Barcelona just once before our big day. With that, finding the best wedding planners was critical to ensure our vision came to fruition.
From the moment we saw Lauren and Elaine’s Instagram and website, we knew we wanted to work with them. Not only do they have an abundance of knowledge about Barcelona and great vendor relationships, but they also have a wealth of experience working with couples who live outside of Spain. They knew of our tight timeline and went right to work. We always felt like the priority and never had any unease with our entire wedding process as a result.
To top it all off, they found the most incredible venues for our events, the most delicious caterer, along with the best photographer, florist, and stylists. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and it is in large part due to the hard work of A Spanish Do!
JULIA & ROMAN
Getting married abroad in a warm, sunny place with great food, history, culture and that’s still easy to reach by everyone joining in on the wedding celebration was always our goal. So Barcelona was a perfect match. But how to organize our dream wedding without living there?
Quite a bit of research went into finding the right wedding planners for us and we’re incredibly thankful having found A Spanish Do! Lauren & Elaine together with their team did an amazing job in organizing our wedding. They have a great network, and make the best suggestions on which vendors to choose, thinking of all the small details oneself would surely miss and making it all fit perfectly together and work like clockwork during the big day of the wedding. At the same time, they instil an atmosphere of calmness and fun in the wedding preparations and on the day of the wedding that one so strongly needs in order to not loose ones head and simply enjoy it all. The design of the wedding was 100% what we were looking for and Lauren & Elaine worked their magic on making every little bit fit together – from flowers, to linens, to the pen lying next to the guestbook.
Thank you so much A Spanish Do for making our dream wedding come true and for giving us memories that we together with our friends and family will cherish for a lifetime!
BRIANNA & STEVE
The moment Steve and I met Elaine and Lauren of A Spanish Do, we felt right at home. International correspondence isn’t always an easy feat. However, any time we had questions, concerns, or needed advice on all things wedding, Lauren and Elaine were quick to assist us and take care of business. We live in Los Angeles, so the first time we met Elaine and Lauren was via Skype. They were so kind and personable; we knew we had made the best decision by selecting A Spanish Do to plan our special day. This was confirmed in person when we visited Barcelona. The team accompanied us on our venue visit and food tasting and acted as our translators and expert guides. A Spanish Do provided us with various options for our rehearsal dinner, wedding day caterer, videographer, and hair and makeup, all of whom Elaine and Lauren booked for us after once we decided on each one. The support, collaboration, and options that A Spanish Do provided truly allowed us to avoid the high stress levels that couples may face while planning their destination wedding remotely.
Prior to heading to Barcelona for our wedding day, Elaine and Lauren were very thorough in making sure that all the fine details were exactly in place, including amazing welcome bags which our guests are still talking about. I didn’t have time to get my nails done before leaving LA, so they even booked a last-minute nail appointment for me! Once the wedding day arrived, I honestly couldn’t have felt more at ease. I knew everything was taken care of, and I was able to enjoy every minute of the day. Steve and I were absolutely astounded by how beautiful our wedding was, from the ceremony, to the dinner tables, to the dance floor. It truly was the best day of our lives and we couldn’t be more grateful to the women of A Spanish Do. Our friends and family raved about our wedding, saying it was the best they’ve ever been to. Booking A Spanish Do for when you say, “I do,” isn’t a recommendation, it’s a must!
VICKY & PATRICK
Planning a wedding involves so many decisions but one of the easiest was choosing to work with A Spanish Do. From our first Skype call with Elaine and Lauren we knew we had found two people who understood exactly what we wanted, had great taste and were also really nice! We immediately trusted them to introduce us to the best vendors in Barcelona and we even booked our venue without visiting first – luckily we loved it!
The attention to detail throughout the planning process and right through the day itself was outstanding. All our friends and family commented on how beautiful the wedding was and marveled at how we had pulled it off while living in Hong Kong! It would never have been possible without the local expertise and wonderful vision that Lauren and Elaine both have. They are clearly hugely admired within Barcelona’s wedding industry as so many of our vendors told us we were in great hands, which made the entire process very enjoyable and stress-free. For any couple looking to get married in Barcelona (an amazing city for a wedding), A Spanish Do are just the best!
JESSICA & JOEVANNI
Honestly, thank goodness for Lauren and Elaine! We connected instantly when we met in Barcelona. It was their beautiful style and fun personalities that drew us to them, but it’s their passion for weddings and calm demeanor that made our perfect day possible. Even though we were communicating all the way from New York, they always understood our vision, and made it come to life.
Truly, we couldn’t have asked for a better team than A Spanish Do. Thank you for showing us the brightness in wedding planning and guiding us through it!
LESLEY & BRIAN
Planning a destination wedding is beyond exciting, but it can also be quite daunting! We fell in love with the idea of having a destination wedding in Barcelona with our closest friends and family. We knew Spanish based wedding planners would be essential in creating the most memorable weekend of our lives so we interviewed several via skype and Lauren and Elaine instantly became our favorites. They have a wonderful energy about them and are an absolute joy to work with. For the many months leading up to our big day, they helped us organize and prioritize our to do lists, guided us through many incredible local vendor options and ultimately helped us created a vision for our day that went beyond our own imaginations.
From the moment we arrived for our wedding, they welcomed us with open arms and told us to relax and enjoy. The wedding was absolutely stunning and our guests continue to rave about what an unforgettable and beautiful wedding weekend it was. We cannot thank Lauren and Elaine enough for all their hard work, attention to detail and genuine care in helping us put together the most magical weekend of our lives.
CAMILLE & PHILIP
We cannot thank you enough for making our elopement so special. It was truly one of the best days of our lives. Every time we look at our photos we remember all of the love and thought both of you put into our wedding. It was a wonderful and magical day and night, and it was all down to you and your wonderful team.
Thank you so much for taking on this journey through your city. We wish you an amazing year and continued success!
BRITTANY & DAVID
The wedding / honeymoon seem like a dream; it all went by so fast!! We are settling into newlywed life and all is well in NYC. Thank you again for all of your hard work in making the weekend such an amazing success – all of our guests repeatedly said (and continue to text me out of the blue to say) that it was the BEST.WEDDING.EVER and how attentive and lovely you were.
Sending so much love! We miss you!
BRIANNA & NICK
When Nick and I decided to get married abroad, my biggest concern was not being there to oversee every detail. The thought of not being able to taste the wine and meal or meet every vendor along the way put a knot in my stomach. But from the very first time we Skyped with Elaine and Lauren, I knew we had found the perfect wedding planner in Barcelona. They calmed my every nerve, helped keep us on track throughout the entire process, never missed one detail and they did it all with such positive, infectious energy each time we talked to them. It was amazing to have such complete trust in someone without ever meeting them face-to-face. We hadn’t seen the venue until a few days before the wedding but we trusted them to help us make one of the most important decisions for the big day.
Since we had a pretty big group coming from California, we not only needed to plan the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day, but also the days prior. A Spanish Do blew us away. Then, on the day, both Elaine and Lauren handled everything so calmly and professionally. Even our guests commented on it. A Spanish Do is by far the best money you could spend on your wedding day. They went above and beyond what any other planner would do and we miss talking to them dearly!
TINA & ZAC
We cannot extend enough thanks to you for coordinating our wonderfully romantic wedding in Olivella. It was so very special. Thank you for all your patience, good judgement and hard work to ensure our special day and surrounding events were enjoyable and stress free. From the first time we met, I was impressed by your warmth and professionalism, and how you made us both feel at ease. We knew that no matter what happened you would make sure that everything would go smoothly, and no surprise, it did.
We appreciate your personal attention, and all your effort in assisting us with great vendors. The flowers were beautiful, the food and cake delicious, and everyone is still talking about how great the band and venue were! We had such a wonderful time, we wish we could do it all over again! One of the greatest pleasures was getting to know you both. Thank you again for the beautiful memories. We really couldn’t have done it without A Spanish Do!
HALEY & JASON
It was never a question as to whether or not we were going to work with a wedding planner in Barcelona to help coordinate our destination wedding, it was a question of who we were going to choose. The answer was obvious within moments of connecting with Lauren and Elaine during our first video chat. Over the course of the following months, they proved, hands down, to be the single best decision we made in the wedding planning process.
This power team offers endless knowledge of the wedding industry, insane attention to detail, absolute professionalism, and admirable dedication to making our wedding the best day of our lives. Our guests are still reminiscing about our unforgettable week in Spain, which simply wouldn’t have been possible without A Spanish Do. In addition to our fantastic memories, we feel like we’ve made two lifelong friends. We’re so grateful.
MARIA & FERGAL
It’s rare to find a person or a team with the combined unique talents including organisation, maturity and a sense for people that A Spanish Do offer. We can’t recommend Elaine, Lauren and team highly enough as wedding planners in Barcelona. Their attention to detail was as sharp as their sense of wit, excitement and fun, and incredible work ethic. They never once took their eye off the ball and ensured every tiny detail was confirmed and delivered for us on the day. No stone was left unturned and EVERY element was managed by the team, with no stress on us. If we had tried to organise the wedding on the moon, I think they would have asked “would you like gin and tonics with that?!”
I can’t tell you what confidence it gave us having Elaine and Lauren around. They brought a sense of total calm and composure to our day. The team have an efficient but effortless presence which put everyone at ease. I cannot recommend this team highly enough…. love these girls!
MEGAN & DAVE
Our whole stay was incredible – truly a once in a lifetime experience. We honestly can’t thank you enough.
The wedding was simply perfect and exactly what we wanted thanks to you. Your team did such a fantastic job! It’s clear that you are very passionate about what you do which shows in the small details that really blew us away. You really made our dream wedding come to life.
We so enjoyed working with you and hope to keep in touch!
KATIE & DANIEL
Hola from a cold and grey London! We hope you’re all well. We just wanted to send you a note to say thank you so so much for helping to give us the best day of our lives. We had an incredible weekend at Casa Felix and could not have done it without you as our wedding planner in Barcelona – both beforehand and on the day itself.
Everything was just perfect, and we are so grateful to you for making the wedding of our dreams a reality. We wish we could do it all again. Thank you again.
KAREN & ANDREY
We are so grateful that we had A Spanish Do as our wedding planner in Barcelona. Elaine & Lauren made planning from more than 3,000 miles away a possibility. We had delicious food, the most beautiful flowers, and everything was timed and organized so we could enjoy ourselves! The whole day was simply magical. Thank you for all your guidance and hard work to make our wedding adventure so memorable.
JEN & SUDEEP
We had such a great time at our wedding and have received so many compliments from our family and friends. Thank you for not only making the wedding wonderful, but helping with all the extras during the entire week.
Everyone still talks about the fabulous week in Spain and none of it would have been possible without your help. Thanks again for everything!
ANNABEL & STEPHEN
We truly had the best day ever as did our family and friends. We have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to (with some even joking better than their own)! All your help and support made it such a magical day.
On the run up to the wedding I had so many people asking me if I was stressed or had so much to do but I didn’t feel stressed at all and that’s because we had you guys doing everything for us. I can’t believe how you made everything seem so easy!
We never imagined it would be as amazing as it was, and that was all down to you guys. There’s no way we could have done it without you as our wedding planner in Barcelona – we owe all of the happy memories to you!!
ELLA & DANIEL
Where do I start? My husband is from Barcelona and we have lived here on and off for many years. However, when we were planning our wedding, we were living on the other side of the world in Australia so we needed a wedding planner in Barcelona. Lauren, Elaine and the team were absolutely incredible during the whole process. They guided and assisted us from start to finish. On our wedding day we were amazed how they coordinated the team of vendors to turn the already beautiful venue into a delightful playground for grown-ups.
I am generally a control freak but it is priceless to feel totally relaxed and enjoy your own wedding, knowing that a professional team is taking care of every single detail. Everything was better than we had ever imagined, and many of our guests told us seriously that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Without Lauren, Elaine and the team, we would not have pulled off such a classy and fun-filled affair! They are reliable, competent, professional and all round good people. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else. You guys rock!
LUCY & ADAM
No words can express how grateful we are for your hard work and how absolutely perfect the day was. From our very first communication you were friendly and efficient, always making time for every last question (and I know I am an absolute control freak therefore they can’t have been easy questions for you!)
I can’t begin to tell you how many people came up to me to say that it was the most amazing wedding they have ever been to. I also had numerous people complimenting you and saying how incredible our planners were. You were on hand from the start making sure everything was set up perfectly and checking on me to make sure I didn’t need anything, throughout the day you made sure we and our guests were enjoying ourselves, and you didn’t leave until the very end making sure our guests got home safely. Nothing was ever too much.
Any bride and groom would be lucky to have A Spanish Do as their wedding planner in Barcelona, and to be quite frank I think they would be absolutely crazy not to pick you!
LAURA & TOM
From Tom: We just wanted to write and say an enormous thank you for orchestrating what many of our guests have described as ‘the best wedding I’ve ever been to’. Laura and I had a truly amazing day; a day which wouldn’t have had any chance of going as smoothly as it did without the two of you! After seeing the way that you both ran the show over the weekend, I can think of no other expense that represented such incredible value – we just couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so, so much!
From Laura: We could not have done it without Lauren and Elaine! Their service was completely invaluable. With us being in the U.K, the stress of organising everything ourselves and sourcing suppliers would have been too much. Having Lauren and Elaine there with a list of approved suppliers was immeasurably helpful and made the prospect of a destination wedding less daunting. I would highly recommend them to any bride looking for a wedding planner in Barcelona.
NADINE & ALEX
What can we say… A Spanish Do are the most amazing wedding planners! From the moment we spoke to them about our wedding we instantly relaxed. They are warm, fun, and positive but also very organized, efficient and ‘get the job done!’ They are extremely proactive and from start to finish they took care of everything. They are so creative and have amazing attention to detail – they really think of absolutely everything.
Our day was just perfect and magical- all the guests raved about it and it really couldn’t have gone any better! Alex and I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding truly perfect!
CAROLINE & STEVE
Thank you both so much for making our day magical and everything we could have wished for and more. The video has close to 4,500 views on Vimeo and I have lost count of the amount of people/strangers that have approached us to gush about every part of it!
There aren’t enough words to express our gratitude and respect for what you do, and we’d recommend you to anyone as the only wedding planner in Barcelona to consider.
We loved every minute of it and a lot of that was down to you guys and your smooth approach to everything. Thanks again
katie & stuart
The wedding was fantastic and we loved every minute so thank you so much for making this all possible – we know you worked so hard on the day to make sure everything went to plan and we all had a great time.
We were very lucky to find you both to help plan our wedding. You made everything stress free, gave us great advice and ensured we had the wedding day of our dreams. Your ‘customised’ approach meant that everything was personal and special to us.
Highly recommend you work with these ladies- not only are they awesome at wedding planning they are very lovely too!
Sharon & Tom
I am very much hands on person who likes control, so I initially had reservations about whether we needed a wedding planner in Barcelona. If you are in two minds, I can speak from experience and say it is the best money you will spend. You can have as little or as much input as you like. Nothing I asked was too much for these girls. They have great contacts and everything I could have imagined they took on the challenge to find (and I have a good imagination). Their suggestions were spot on, and their experience speaks volumes. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for helping us create the most perfect day that we will be sure to remember for years to come. You were a pleasure to work with and we couldn’t be more grateful.
sarah & nIAMH
Sorry it has taken so long to write, it has been such a busy time since the wedding! It was such a wonderful weekend. We both wanted to say thank you so much for all your work on the run up to the big day and a fantastic job on the day. We couldn’t have asked for better wedding planners, many of the guests commented that you were like little “wedding fairies” !
TORI & ANDREU
Not only is Elaine a fabulous person to be around, she was truly a life saver as our wedding planner in Barcelona. We flew many people in from all over the globe, and thanks to A Spanish Do, I was able to actually relax and enjoy a wonderful week with family and friends. Thank you for making it the most memorable and special time for us.
Rose & Dale
The venue really couldn’t have been better. We all loved it there so much – it instantly felt like home and was SO relaxing all week. I think our wedding was the most problem free wedding in history! It was a greater day than I could have ever imagined
Stephanie & Paul
We couldn’t have been happier with the entire team at A Spanish Do. They ensured we were able to fully realise our slightly alternative wedding dreams, supported any special requests and offered fabulous advice. The whole experience was truly wonderful and I can’t thank them enough. I just wish we could start the whole planning process again!
Katie & Michael
We owe a massive thank you to the team at A Spanish Do – they were a god-send! From initial to final contact, they were there at the end of an email or phone call suggesting and advising my wife and I. They organised the venue, church, English-speaking priest, wedding catering, BBQ catering, DJ, photographer, flowers and more – all of which were first class. If any of our friends were looking for a wedding in planner in Barcelona, we would thoroughly recommend them. Our wedding day could not have gone any smoother due to their faultless organisation – we just wish we could do it all again!
JESS & HUGO
A Spanish Do were amazing as our wedding planners in beautiful Barcelona. We couldn’t have picked a better location to celebrate our special day, and of course the Masia was absolutely magical. Our guests still talk about the wedding. They seem to be still living the magic. Thank you very much for making this day happen. You made everything run so smoothly and beautifully. You are also very lovely people and fun to work with. I would highly recommend A Spanish Do to anyone lusting for a fabulous destination wedding!
