The Advantages of Having a Wedding Planner

Preparing, planning, and coordinating your wedding day can be stressful. Without a wedding planner, couples spend hundreds of hours searching for vendors, deciding on the décor, and perfecting the details for their ceremony and reception.You will get bombarded with the amount of texts, emails, and phone calls leading up to their wedding day. When a couple books a wedding planner, they can simply enjoy their engagement with less stress, and focus on what really matters- the love of their life.


Be Wed & Be Well Wedding Planning

I  had the pleasure of working with Mikhaila Riska, the owner of Be Wed & Be Well. Her wedding planning services are unique because she “brings wellness to wedding planning”. Not only does she remove the stress from wedding planning, but she includes free and discounted spa services at the 920 Wellness Studio in Appleton, WI. She believes taking the stress off of a couple is of highest importance so the couple can smile and laugh together without worrying about whether or not the DJ knows what song to play during the grand march.


She loves organizing and managing all of the puzzle pieces that make up a wedding day. The best part is seeing it all come together seamlessly. Unfortunately, many couples don’t prioritize a wedding planner because it seems as though it’s an easy cost to cut. Despite that, a professional wedding planner is worth the investment, and is likely not as costly as one may believe. Wedding planners will work with your budget and will find vendors that will be a good match. Mikhaila helped me bring in unique vendors like The Vintage Hitch for this styled shoot at High Cliff State Park.

Wedding Planners are Valuable

Above all, a wedding planner has your best interest in mind. They’re a valuable asset to creating the wedding of your dreams. Wedding Planners will give you peace of mind when it comes to your wedding day. You can get in touch with Mikhaila from Be Wed & Be Well here.
