Delegation Isn’t Just for Business, it Applies to Weddings Too

Wedding Planning Entrepreneur Hosts Events to Help Women Connect with Professional, Affordable Help

First comes love, then comes the proposal, then comes the headache. Event planning can be stressful to begin with, then add to the mix the fact that it is your one special day—your wedding—that you are planning for and it is easy to understand how a woman who is already busy can turn into a Bridezilla if she doesn’t find the right help.    

Michelle Gainey is a wedding planning entrepreneur.


Thank goodness for small miracles like Michelle Gainey’s businesses: Lemiga Events and Studio Wed Atlanta. Michelle says there are lots of bridal shows and planners but her concept and vision are different. “When you go to a bridal show it can be very overwhelming because you often don’t leave with the help you needed.  Instead you leave with a bunch of business cards,” Michelle says. “The next day you can’t remember who does what or which service provider you liked best.”    

When it comes to weddings, the importance of the day, too much information and so many options can get a busy business woman’s blood pressure up. After all, you have enough to worry about. But Michelle says you have options.    

Lemiga, founded in 2004, is a wedding planning and management firm.  Michelle says they plan weddings from beginning to end with every single detail in mind. For brides who are a bit more brave and have time to do more themselves, Michelle suggests keeping stress to a minimum by having vendors come to you. She has launched this concept at Studio Wed Atlanta. “We have put together a team of about 32 vendors in various categories and they are the best,” Michelle says. “They have combined experience of more than a hundred years and a bride can find everything she needs for her wedding, all in one location. It simplifies the process.”     

Michelle’s passion and confidence in the right process also led her to launch “The Wedding Experience,” a one-day educational bridal seminar where, she says, couples can learn the inside secrets on how to make wedding planning manageable, right down to the right questions to ask when you meet with various vendors. “We want brides to know what to look for, and our presenters and exhibitors at this event will make sure they do,” Michelle said.
