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!
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.
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?!
Wedding planners have dreams, too! Fairy Godfather TJ got to fulfill a dream and stop in at The Black Tux booth! We would also like to announce that Fairy Godmother is an official preferred vendor of The Black Desk, the premier concierge service of The Black Tux.
We had the great pleasure of listening to so many great speakers, BB Webb and Linnyette Richardson-Hall just to name a few. These speakers gave us insight to new and upcoming trends, assurance of what we have been doing, and then some new tips and tricks for what we should try to implement.
Wedding Wire had awesome booths with lovely giveaways, items ranging from tickets to Wedding Wire World all the way to sweatshirts and keychains. Fairy Godmother Cassandra gave her best spin on the Wedding Wire slot machine!
The Knot and Wedding Wire were sponsors for the conference, and they even threw their own after parties for all the attendees. The Knot’s event was “The Greatest Event On Earth” held at Chateau atop the Paris Hotel on the Las Vegas strip.
The ladies at Enchanted Bridal Boutique were sure keep us in style with all of our custom shirts! The Fairy Godmother squad had matching shirts for each day, and talk about a hit! We had creative partners, strangers, and admirers point out our shirts each day… Such a fun way to show our team spirit!
The Fairy Godmother team is proud to share that we are officially 2016 Wedding MBA graduates! We cannot wait until next year!
