We believe your wedding day should be filled with the kind of beauty that speaks especially to you. Fairy Godmothers is a complete design studio where we bring together several design services, including flowers, invitations, favors and more.
Patty did the most breathtaking florals for my sisters bridal shower luncheon. From one meeting, she was able to bring the vision to life for the most stunning and whimsical table centerpieces that I could have only dreamed of: filled with colo...
r, height and texture that perfectly complemented the venue. As a favor, she also designed a “build your own floral bouquet” station where guests were able to (guided) pick from a selection of different flowers and stock, which she then arranged in the cutest vases with accentuating ribbons. The day off, Patty and her team were there and expertly helped take charge not just of flowers, but of the whole setup. She helped the guests make their bouquets look polished and perfect, and managed a super quick breakdown at the request of the venue. My guests were absolutely thrilled, and the arranges have lasted ages. Our venue, Summer House Santa Monica, said they were the most beautiful florals they ever had in the space! Absolutely thrilled with her work - could not recommend more!

She pinned the boys flowers at the church, delivered my flowers and set up everything at the reception. She went above and beyond to make sure we didn’t have to worry about anything- she was like our angel! The flowers were absolutely stunning - exactly what I had hoped and dreamed for.

It was SO BEAUTIFUL and so much better than I had dreamed it would be. The flowers that Patty and I planned were beyond what I had expected, and she made my "vintage wedding" theme come to life. I even integrated vintage brooches into my girls' bouquets and corsages, and she did so with such skill and expertise that they were a true highlight of the day that everyone was talking about.

I would recommend her to anyone!!

We hired Fairy Godmothers as the florist for my daughter's wedding and as the coordinator during the two months before the wedding and the day of the wedding. We worked with Patty Kudlacz.
My daughter was living in London while the wedding ...
was being planned. Most of her interaction with Patty was via email and through conversation with me. Patty listened attentively, quickly comprehended the look of the wedding and recommended flower arrangements and bouquets that were perfect and beautiful.
Other than the flowers, we had the wedding planned at the point we began working with Patty. However, the coordination role was incredibly helpful. Patty helped manage the contracts to make sure all of the vendors were well prepared for the event and had all of the pertinent details for the day. She also interfaced with the stationery store, oversaw the printing of various items, including the handwritten table cards, and she prepared the program for the wedding ceremony.
Patty's experience factor was invaluable. She knows everything about weddings and wedding receptions. The day of the wedding, everything came together beautifully and Patty was there make sure of it!

My sister had the "Fairy Godmother's" as her florist for her wedding and absolutely loved the product. I decided to go with them as well for my wedding this past June. Patty, the owner, is absolutely wonderful. I told Patty that I wanted a ru...
stic/woodland wedding. She had endless ideas and many options. I had a very plain looking cake. Patty made a cute looking birch wood top to hold the flowers in on the cake. She also had a vendor that sold birch wood slabs that I could have the cake set on. This made the cake look expensive for a small price. I wanted to recycle some of my flowers from the ceremony to the reception to save money. I was planning on buying mason jars to put baby's breath in as centerpieces. Patty took care of all of this and threw in the mason jars at no extra cost! Then of course there was my bouquet and the bridesmaid's bouquet! I could not have imagined up a more beautiful collection of flowers. In fact, the makeup artist said when she saw them, "I have worked at a lot of weddings and I have never seen such a unique looking bouquet." I had the flower girls wear crowns and they were adorable. The groomsmen boutonnieres were very masculine and were very appropriate for the wedding theme. Finally, I wanted to say that Patty is so much more than a florist. For both me and my sister's wedding she stuck around for the ceremony and helped keep things organized. For both our weddings she helped us know when it was time for us or our wedding party to walk down the aisle (something we both hadn't thought about very much while planning our wedding). If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely go with the Fairy Godmothers.

d. The bouquets were a mix of light green hydrangeas and vendella ivory roses. The centerpieces were two dozen of vendella roses with some greenery. And most importantly it was reasonably priced. She even suggested and tastefully added a little bling to the ribbons on the centerpiece vases.
One thing during the process, I wish Patty had more pictures from her previous weddings, so it would be easier for me to pick and choose and feel more confident that I will get exactly what I envision. But we did a sample centerpiece before the wedding, tweaked a few things and it was great!

We would whole-heartedly recommend Patty to anyone for any event. Her sweetness and creativity made the experience incredibly enjoyable for us.

Patty listened to my vision, offered suggestions, and helped me create exactly what I wanted. I had a shabby chic theme at my reception and we used mason jars for candles at the tables and used birch bark vases to hold the flowers.
Patty offered a number of ideas and suggestions for each segment of the flowers which opened me up to other alternatives I didn't know about and helped me stay within my budget. She is very flexible.
She also helps out on the day of. She was there for our photos before the wedding, during the ceremony she fixed my train before I walked down the aisle and she made sure the reception hall had all of our finishing touches in place.

As for the flowers, they could not have been more stunning. Everyone who attended our wedding was floored by their color, design, and presence.
