Dawn Early – Your Own Fairy Godmother Wedding Planning
From the age of 6, Dawn insisted that she decorate her own birthday cakes (and then also made them for others.) Dawn made clothes by trial and error without any sewing classes by the time she was 10. She filled her free time with drawing and designing prom and wedding dresses, and she also worked in a flower shop during peak seasons while in high school. She worked full-time while attending Southwest Texas State University majoring in Psychology and being very active in the community. She understands “busy.” Friends from school and church would frequently call her and ask for her to assist with their weddings, bachelorette parties, and showers. She began coordinating weddings in 1996 while still in college. Initially, out of school, she worked with deaf children and their families, and she also coordinated all of the Halloween and Christmas parties for the city-wide program. She is known amongst her friends, family, and all of her previous co-workers as “Emily Post” and “Martha Stewart.” (No jail time though.) She’s often been asked if there’s anything that she can’t do. (The answer is YES! Don’t ever ask Dawn to sing. She will be the first to admit that it is not pretty.) Dawn founded Your Very Own Fairy Godmother in 2002, and initially, she accepted only one intern. Since then, the firm has grown, and there are multiple coordinators and interns alike at what is now one of the most highly respected firms in the U.S. Both the Austin and Houston teams are touted as the best of the best in the industry.
Dawn is on the Advisory Board for Nuptial Essentials Curriculum & Instruction. It is important to her that she continues to learn and to educate other future wedding consultants.
Dawn married her own Prince Charming, Ross Earley, in April of 2004. Even then, she chose to have one of her fellow Fairy Godmother coordinators in addition to the coordinator that was provided by the wedding site. There is nothing that can ease the mind of a very detail-oriented (and a tad OCD) wedding professional more than knowing that she has another detail-oriented wedding professional that she trusts attending to every element of her lovingly-planned day.
Dawn has done the floral arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, catering and cakes for weddings and showers, but her true passion is the planning, design, and coordination of the big event. She wants to make sure that every detail is perfect for YOUR Cinderella story. Your Very Own Fairy Godmother Wedding & Event Coordination is proud of their reputation as people who sincerely want the bride, groom, their families, and wedding parties to feel as if the world has stopped to service them throughout the planning process and especially on the big day.

Favorite thing about being a Fairy Godmother: Being able to work on a daily basis with women who have become my best friends and having the opportunity to impact the lives of our brides, grooms, and their families on such a monumental day as we all work together is incredibly rewarding.
