Everyone has a vision of how they want their wedding day to look. From a simple theme to an all-out extravagant affair – you know what YOU want. And at Fairy Tale Affairs, which opened in 2000, we’re here to make that vision become a reality. I’m Tracey, and my daughter Dezi and I are the masterminds that will create the wedding of your dreams. We’re not your typical wedding professionals. In fact, we leave the planning to the venues and wedding planners – what we do is make your fairy tale vision for your wedding day come to life. From save the dates, invitations, menus, programs, rentals, accessories and favors to linens and centerpieces and so much more! Our entertainment services include everything from champagne pourers, dancers, photo booths, illusionists, greeters, cigar rollers, drag shows, to Broadway performers. We never say no – so if you can dream it, Dezi and I will make it happen. We’re family owned and operated, with over 30 years experience in the wedding industry. When you walk into our beautiful showroom, you immediately become part of our family! We are just as passionate about your big day as you are. Most of our brides come back to us to plan other milestones in their lives like baby showers, christenings and birthday parties, just to name a few.

The Wedding Industry
Working in New York City as an accountant for years I felt uninspired and unfulfilled. There was something missing. I always loved creating and developing ideas. I love the challenge of finding a way to make the impossible… “possible”. So…. the natural path led me to start planning and coordinating weddings. I knew this was my calling. I started with invitations, favors and accessories and coordinating with outside sources to design the decor. Soon, it was thriving. When my oldest daughter joined the company, she took it to another level. She’s a graphic designer – and with her creative talent, we actually have our own production department now and control/produce/create all of our designs. What we love most about weddings is when we get to experience and share our brides’ excitement as they explain their wedding vision. We truly love being a part of your special day. We fit all budgets, styles and turn around times. This is something we pride ourselves on. We act like every wedding is our wedding – so you know it’s going to be beautiful.
The Wedding Memories
All of our brides are so memorable. A few times, when we were coordinating weddings, the couples would thank us during their speeches. This stands out, because we were just there doing what we do best, but it’s such a great thing to feel like part of the family. “NO” is not in our vocabulary. If it is possible… we will make it happen.
We pride ourselves on being a "one-stop shop" for ALL of your wedding and event needs! We are dream developers. Another of our specialties is Italian confetti – NOT Jordan almonds. These are the original Italian confetti that are now covered in chocolate with all different types of flavors such as cappuccino, pistachio, delizia al limone, sfogliatella, etc. We have partnered up with Amore Mio Confetti who has exclusive rights to import this product into the United States. It offers a delicious unique experience for your guests. We probably sell as much Confetti as we do invitations! As this tradition originated in the Italian and Greek cultures, it is a wonderful blessing and tradition that can be enjoyed and appreciated by any nationality. Who doesn’t need a blessing in this day and age?
In August 2000, we started in a small storefront as event planners... which soon after developed to invitations... then favors, then accessories... and the rest is history! Now we are a full one-stop shopping experience in a beautiful double showroom.
My youngest daughter actually came up with the name Fairy Tale Affairs when she was only 5! We’ve always been into Disney movies – and we still are. When we were trying to think of names, Taylor just blurted out Fairy Tales. And we thought it was perfect!
Q: Can you do this? A: We always say yes! Q: Can I change my mind or design? A: Yes! We actually encourage it! Q: How much do invitations cost? A: That is a loaded question… as there are so many contributing factors. Such as quantity, paper, weight, type of printing, layering, embellishments, type of mailer… the list goes on. That’s why an in-person meeting is so exciting… the development of your dream invitation is born in this moment. Q: How much does it cost? A: It depends on what you’re getting. We work with all different budgets. We have a custom in-house design team that is included at no additional cost, for whatever you dream up!
Besides our love of family and creating beautiful things… our other interests differ dramatically between Dezi and I. I love to travel. I actually live part time in Italy, and I go back and forth. Dezi loves hiking and nature – pretty much anything outdoors, and she is a huge foodie. She’s an adventurer, full of energy and fun… always on the GO! While I’m more of a city person…I love fashion, culture, the sea, music and taking things day by day.
From the moment I walked in I knew I was at the right place! Tracey & Dezi took the time to listen to what we wanted, and the end result was fabulous! I received more phone calls & texts on how gorgeous the invitations were.
I love them! They made our wedding invitations, favors, seating board, tables numbers and even had card box for us to use last minute. The quality of everything was top notch!
Had the best experience there. We ordered our invitations, and Theresa was so kind and patient and helped us pick out something within our budget. Beautiful store.
Fairy tale affairs is the absolute best vendor to work with!! I have used them for several special events and each time I am just so happy with how everthing has looked.
We used Fairy Tale Affairs for bridal shower and wedding favors and it was the absolute best choice! They helped make our events stress free, memorable, and beautiful with their attention to detail, professionalism, and kindness.
I purchased my wedding invitations at Fairytale affairs and had the most wonderful experience!! We worked with Dezi throughout the whole process and she was absolutely phenomenal. She truly cares about the work they create for their customers and it shows. We will be coming back to Fairytale Affairs for all of our future events.
The little details of our wedding were made so special thanks to the work of Dezi! She did an amazing job. Everything from save the dates, invitations, and seating chart received numerous compliments from family and friends!
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! Fairy Tale Affairs is just so wonderful to work with! Tracey and Dezi worked with me and my daughter when she became engaged. They designed and customized the most beautiful save-the-date!
Fairytale Affairs created the most gorgeous favors for our wedding. We got the Amore Mio trio, and it was a huge hit, we've received so many compliments from our guests. They also make it look so beautiful with so much attention to all the details. Additionally, all the staff was a pleasure to work with.
I HIGHLY recommend Fairy Tale Affairs for all your wedding needs. I used them for my daughter's Bridal Shower. Their attention to detail is impeccable. They are very detail oriented. Both Tracey and Desi are wonderful to work with.
