Including your venue, your entire wedding day is to be everything you have ever dreamed of. Why not make it happen?

Country-rustic meets country club? Absolutely. Storybook meets historic landmark? You got it.

There are endless possibilities to anything and everything you can dream up, the execution is just what makes it memorable!

According to our friends over at Bridal Guide, here are a few of the top wedding style trends!

Currently, the most popular wedding style is rustic. Rustic tends to lean towards ranch venues, and rural outdoor weddings. A combination of burlap and lace, touched up with boots and florals simply defines the style. The more modern spin on the style would be dressing up old ranches and open spaces with very elegant drapery and vintage furniture, so fun!

Speaking of vintage… The vintage wedding style has taken the world by storm! Reverting back to the times of glitz and glamour, couples are now trying to throw a better party than Jay Gatsby himself! The vintage style is timeless, and of course keeps the romance and depiction of love so alive on your big day! Lets not forget one of the best ways to keep that dapper wedding day charm is with a vintage automobile!

 Themed weddings! We love all of our wedding themes, but we also love being able to exercise our creative freedom with themed weddings! Themed weddings allow for couples to fully immerse their guests into a unique experience.

Here at Fairy Godmother, we would love to make your wedding style dreams come true! Contact us today to get started, and again, congratulations on your engagement! 

Magical Monday: Lindsey and Jason say “I do” in a romantic park setting

The adventure of planning Lindsey and Jason’s wedding started long ago on March 12, 2014. We had talked many times, met in person and met Lindsey’s mom at a bridal show. The choice to hire Fairy Godmother was on the fence and we had to win over Deann, Lindsey’s mom, ensuring her that we supply as much magic as possible.

Once the decision was made to hire Fairy Godmother Cassandra as their planner, the magic began. Too early to begin planning is never in our vocabulary. Deann’s wish was have all major components completed 10 months prior to the wedding so that the rest of the small details could follow stress free. We were up to the task and tackled it head on.

Hunting for the perfect venue, creating 3 customized centerpieces and the overall ambiance of the wedding was just the half of it. We had the privilege of assisting with the creation of her invitation and bridal suite with Matinae Design Studio. They evolved beautifully throughout production and fit Lindsey’s wedding perfectly. As well as working closely with Carlos of Make it Happen Events to match the floral elements perfectly to our vision. You’ll see the mock up photos and day of finished creations below.

On October 3rd Lindsey and Jason were married! Throughout the planning a bond was formed with Lindsey and Dean and it didn’t seem real that the Magical Day was upon us. Fairy Godmother Cassandra will always be their forever Fairy Godmother and cannot wait to see their life with their fur babies and memories unfold even further.
