  • Bri at Stress-Free Weddings was our day-of coordinator for our Iowa destination wedding. She was professional, dedicated and truly made sure our wedding day went as we envisioned. We are from Iowa, but we were living out of state at the time and realized we really needed some help. We already had most of our vendors contracted and therefore went with the day-of coordinator package. However, at times it felt as if she was our full planner because of what she all did for us. I would highly recommend contacting her before you choose your vendors because she can give great referrals. Bri is personable and direct and made sure that the timeline went as planned. There were some issues on our wedding day that ended up going smoothly because Bri was there. I also had some issues with a couple vendors afterwards (not any of her recommendations) and she still took the time after the wedding date to help us out. Our wedding day went perfect and was hands down the best and most fun day of our live... Read more

  • We definitely recommend Brianne to anyone in the wedding planning process! As my mom would say, she was the best money spent on our wedding. From the start, she helped to put my mind at easy knowing I was on track by sending out her checklist of things that needed to be done. This was so helpful as it included even the small things that sometimes slip our minds. The real value of Brianne really came in the week leading up to the wedding when she took complete reigns of everything that would have otherwise would have been on my to figure out. I remember feeling like I maybe wasn't doing enough and asking her if I need to be reaching out to our vendors. Her answer was that she was taking care of it and if there was anything I needed to tell them, she would tell them for me. This all became even more helpful on the wedding day when I literally didn't have to worry about the DJ, the wedding cake, the ushers and attendants arriving, etc! Brianne definitely lived up to her name and helped us... Read more

  • We worked with Bri for our wedding in November of 2019 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I'm a Project Manager by trade so I'm a pretty organized person but I also knew that I needed someone to run point the day of my wedding so I could focus on getting married and having a great time. Bri was absolutely perfect. She helped with vendor contract review and checklists for a full year before the wedding and she was extremely responsive any time we reached out. If anything went awry the day of my wedding - I didn't know. Which was PERFECT. I'm so happy we decided to work with her for our special day. 110% worth it!

  • I am so SO glad we hired Bri as our day of coordinator. She helped from the beginning by answering a lot of my wedding etiquette questions, helping us find a back up plan B venue last minute while I freaked out, checked in with my vendors, made executive decisions I didn’t have to be bothered with on the big day, and so much more! Bri and her assistant, Cameron, were such a blessing to have with us on our wedding day! The list of things she did for us is literally a mile long!

  • Bri was my peace of mind throughout the entire wedding planning process. It was priceless to have someone with her experience to run to with all my questions. She was so helpful and kind and made sure we had everything in place to make our day run smoothly. I was able to rest assured she had everything under control so that I could actually enjoy our wedding! She lives up to the name and I would highly recommend to anyone.

  • When my husband and I first set out to find a wedding planner, we knew it had to be someone who knew exactly what they were doing, no hesitation, and no tip-toeing around whatever we said. We needed someone who would give us structure and direction, but someone who listened to what we wanted and executed our vision promptly. My husband and I planned our West Des Moines wedding while living overseas for the entire duration of the planning process. Brianne Ackerland exceeded our expectations in every aspect. Going into the process, we didn't realize how many fine details we'd need to address from overseas. Brianne went out of her way for absolutely everything and she DELIVERED. Even with the 8 hour time difference, Brianne worked her schedule around us for calls, video chats, decision-making between family members, vendors, details, etc., all the way up to the end of our wedding day. On the Day Of, Brianne took on her leadership role with pride and made everyone in the wedding party feel... Read more

  • It doesn’t matter how organized and detailed-oriented you think you are, hiring Brianne as our wedding planner was truly one of the best parts of the whole process. Mother-of-the-bride lived in one state, mother-of-the-groom lived in another all the while the couple was living in Europe for the year. Brianne helped pull us all together for an amazing event and we are most grateful and appreciative of everything she did for our families. We were able to enjoy the entire process with Brianne’s knowledge and expertise and not once did we have to worry about a thing. Even our cars were all loaded up at the end of the wedding reception…all we had to do was get in and drive away.

    Thank you for your wonderful review. It is always great to hear from the parents of the couple. We strive to do our best to make sure everyone enjoys the wedding day Stress-Free! Bri

Our wedding turned out great due in large part to Brianne's knowledge, experience, and caring attitude. I would highly recommend Stress-Free Weddings to everyone!

  • Hiring Brianne was hands down the BEST decision we made for our wedding! I am personally very organized and detail-oriented and was at first skeptical that we should hire a planner, but now I realize that she was the biggest blessing we could've had for our wedding! From day one of the planning process, Brianne was there to guide us along and answer every question we had. I can’t even count the number of times I emailed her in the months leading up to the wedding to get guidance and advice on the most random things! The wedding planning meetings we had were so extremely helpful and she made sure we had thought through everything to ensure the day would go smoothly. The actual wedding day was executed beautifully. I was able to relax knowing that she had everything under control-- she designated herself as the "go to" person for questions so that no one was contacting my husband or I the day of our wedding. If we didn’t have Brianne, I would not have been able to focus on enjoying t... Read more

  • Five stars is not enough to represent how thankful we were to have Bri and her team there for us before, during and after our wedding. In the weeks leading up to the wedding Bri and her team were already in contact with our vendors and coordinated with them consistently to make sure everything went exactly how we dreamed. This included scheduling vendors arrival, set up, tear down, etc... During our wedding both Jenna and I had nothing on our minds except getting married. We had no worries about how the wedding and reception were running because We knew Bri and her team were behind the scenes making sure everything went according to plan. Still to this day we have guests who attended our wedding say that they have never been to a wedding that went so smooth. The Stress Free Team made it the most memorable, relaxing, and enjoyable experience for the both of us!

  • Guys. Trust the reviews. Brianne & Stress-Free Weddings were such a huge asset to us leading up to & day of our wedding. She and Lisa were a calming presence, taking care of every little detail but always in a good mood and eager to help. There were things that happened - little fires or updates - that I wasn't even aware of until after the fact because they took care of it. I'm an event planner by trade so was highly wary of any event planners I would hire. You can tell from the first conversation you have with Brianne that she is organized, charming and truly skilled at what she does. You won't regret hiring her.

  • I had a wonderful experience with Brianne at Stress Free! She truly turned my stressful situation completely around and took all my worries away. She was a extremely attentive to all the details. Very professional and personable. She always knew just the right thing to do when an issue came up. I was very pleased and so grateful to have her as our wedding planner, our wedding and reception of over 260 was perfect and we have her to thank.

  • I should really have my now-husband write this review. When I told him I wanted to get a wedding coordinator to handle all the stuff that inevitably goes wrong when having a party for 200 people, he was fiercely against it. He insisted his large fam could handle anything we needed help with. And while I LOVE his fam, I needed someone to keep things rolling without me having to direct them (control freaks, you’ll feel me). I hired her anyway because sanity is priceless. When my husband and I met with her six months before the wedding, he was blown away by her wedding knowledge (which, duh) and her helpful tips. We left with him insisting that we hire her to stay until the end of the night to help clean up. She was beyond worth it. From making sure my vendors were on top of everything to helping me find and affordable florist/ decorator she was amazing. On the day, she was even more indispensable. She noticed our Polaroid guestbook needed tape (oops) and hunted down our cake stand wh... Read more
