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 2006, 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, Your Gallivanting Guru, to do just that! We have been planning destination weddings, honeymoons, and family vacations ever since. In 2015, Dawn moved over to the travel side of the business full time. She is still serving couples and families with their vacation needs.

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.

  • This was our first trip to Disney World as a family. We went with Dawn Earley, The Fairy Godmother of Family travel because of her high expertise of Disney. She could write a book like “What to Expect When You Are At Disney World.” We had an extremely well planned out trip from airport to resort to airport. Dawn helped us build great family focused schedules each day. When Disney didn’t check us in properly, and we found out while we were at a restaurant, Dawn immediately handled the situation and solved the problem by the time we made it back to the resort. Dawn gave us great tips and advice for the big things and the little things. She truly radiates Disney’s Magic Fairy Dust. She really made this a magical experience which left us with having a ton of fun and tons of great memories. We will definitely use her again for our next family adventure wherever that may be.
