The award-winning Fairy Godmothers have extensive experience and a passion for keeping things fresh. We are much more than "travel agents" or “event planners," just ask our vendors and past clients. When orchestrating a vacation or soiree, big or small, you need a Fairy Godmother to make sure that you are able to enjoy every moment! Every proposal is customized to your wants and needs, and the initial consultation is complimentary. Call or e-mail today to find Your Very Own Fairy Godmother.
Dawn has began coordinating weddings in 1996. She had always been touted as "THE" planner, but she had always done it with her heart and soul; combining her love for planning and coordinating events with a business seemed to be against the foundation of her passion. She realized the need for her services and the value of having a business to help share her knowledge and services, and she founded Your Very Own Fairy Godmother Wedding & Event Coordination in 2002. In 2015, we realized that there is a real need in the Austin area for a travel concierge with real destination wedding experience as well as one that truly understands the needs of a family that is planning a vacation. We teamed up with our long-time vendor, The Getaway Guru, to do just that! We have been planning destination weddings, honeymoons, and family vacations ever since.
She soon found with a rapidly growing list of clients, that in order to provide the level of service on which she had always prided herself, she needed assistance from others that shared the same vision for clients and enthusiasm for the industry. Within 18 months, her team became the fastest growing event planning and consulting firm in the Central Texas area, and she has trained each team member herself. The name "Your Very Own Fairy Godmother" represents an elevation of excellence, and it is incredibly important, not only to Dawn, but to each team member that every masterfully planned event perpetuates that reputation. In addition to their personalized service, The Fairy Godmothers ensure that your uniqueness will be expressed stylishly in every aspect of the event. At the heart of The Fairy Godmothers, you will find that it is the eye for detail, extreme organization, sincere love of planning, and the deep desire to make every event a fairytale come true for the client.
Many potential clients have the misconception that a coordinator is an unnecessary or frivolous expense. First, the sanity and ability to enjoy your event with grace is truly priceless. However, an event planner is so much more than someone who plans and executes an event or even provides that ease and sense of relaxation. The extensive research, vendor connections, vast experience and resources that Your Very Own Fairy Godmother possesses can often save a client more than the fees that are charged for the coordination services. The team has worked diligently to create individualized interactive budget spreadsheets and to negotiate the best rates with the top professionals that are offered only to clients of Your Very Own Fairy Godmother. In the end, this allows you to have a flawless, swank event that is a true reflection of you at a price that you can afford.

My sister in law had a destination wedding in Punta Cana. We had a hard time getting her travel agent on the phone or getting her to return emails. I reached out to Dawn, the Fairy Godmother of Travel and she took amazing care of us down to the last detail! We had our family's tripped book at the best rate within a couple of days! She looked at several airlines and scenarios and took out all of the confusion we had. Do not hesitate to call Dawn!

Dawn did an amazing job at helping me and my family plan a trip to Disney. We were all booking separately and she was able to figure out what were were looking for in our price range and accommodate each of us. Our first Disney trip was a success. I will definitely use Dawn again.

If you are looking for a detail oriented person who will take the time to plan your trip like it was her own, look no further! Dawn was professional, prompt, and delivered an amazing vacation. She answered all my questions (and I had a lot) and was super available. I was so impressed with her. We will definitely be using her again for future trips.
Planning / coordinating weddings and events takes an immense focus on the details. In working with the staff at Fairy Godmothers, we are thankful for their professionalism and attention to details that results in flawless events.
Top Quality, easy to work with, only great things to say about Dawn and her fantastic company!!!!!!
