Wedding Wire World 2017 Fairy GodmotherWhat is one of the best perks of this “happy business” you ask?

The never-ending learning!

Talk about fun!

No Fairy Field Trip is complete without some shopping and a little bit of ice cream!

You can best believe that some of your favorite Fairies indulge into their sweetest treats when they get the chance.

The very first thing that our opening speaker Alan Berg shared with us was a quote by Jim Collins, “Good is the enemy of great.”

Alan Berg was one of many great speakers that Wedding Wire brought to us, his career is focused in building others. A phenomenal motivational speaker, author, and business builder!

Did we mention that this conference started on Wedding Wire’s 10 year anniversary?!

How cool is that?!

We had our “fan girl” moment when we got to see the one, the only, the legendary… Mindy Weiss!

She was so warm, fashionable, and funny!

She made herself relatable to each and every guest in the audience, we felt like she was talking right to us!

Oh wait, she did!

Wedding Wire was the first company in the wedding industry to offer online wedding reviews. This is where we first learned about the power of a review! Talk about “WOW!”

After day two of conferences, Wedding Wire hosted a fabulous evening event for all the attendees to network and mingle.

Aside from absolutely stunning centerpieces, Wedding Wire hosted hors d’oeuvres and an assortment of custom grilled cheese sandwiches!

Brides, e-mails, and a little touch up… Your Fairies have got your back!

Another speaker was none other than Candace Nelson. Does the name ring a bell? No? How about Sprinkles? Still nothing? What about the vending machine cupcake company? Yup, that’s her!

 So, after hearing Candace’s inspirational story the Fairy Godmother team took flight and found the nearest Sprinkles!

And yes mom, we made sure that we had dinner first!

Before we could leave, we had to take one little Fairy Field Trip to one of our favorite candy shops, Sugarfina!

Leaving a little Fairy Dust in Anaheim just wasn’t enough, we went on to sprinkle some in Beverly Hills, too!

2016 Wedding MBA – Magical Monday

To kick off wedding season, the Fairy Godmother team packed up their bags and made their way to

Las Vegas, Nevada for the 2016 Wedding MBA!

Fairy Godmother Wedding MBA

The Wedding MBA is a three day conference carefully crafted for professionals in the wedding industry. The MBA has everything from professional photographers, to well known bloggers to the best florists in the business… All have something to share about their time in the business.

This was Fairy Godmother’s 3rd year in attendance at Wedding MBA. We are firm believers in power in numbers! The first year only two planners attended, the second year there were four, and this year six of the Fairy Godmother team went.

Fairy Godmother Traveling

As you already know, the wedding industry is a forever changing, forever learning kind of business. With no two events ever being the same, there is always a yearning for knowledge. When professionals from all the world get together in one building, the possibilities are endless! We believe that it is a truly wonderful thing when the focus is on collaboration and there is no room for competition.

At Fairy Godmother, we call wedding planning the “happy business!” There is something so magical about taking the dreams and pieces of an engaged couple to create a magical wedding day as they shift to newly weds. With a growth in knowledge, we are able to provide an even more immaculate service to our clients, and what is better than that?!
