HOW ONE MEMORABLE BRIDE STARTED IT ALL.
Fêtefully started with a great discovery, and in this case, it was a bride crying during a wedding planning meeting.
GiGi McDowell, Founder of Fêtefully, held a hysterical bride during their second planning meeting. While attempting to comfort the bride she learned that her tears were due to her inability to pay her wedding planning invoice combined with the pressure of planning her “dream wedding” on her own. GiGi assured her that planning her wedding on her own was not only possible but there were tons of resources available to help make it fun and easy. GiGi soon realized she was wrong. Something was missing from the countless resources available to DIY brides – the insider knowledge and mastery of a professional planner.
At that moment, GiGi saw a need for Fêtefully, a way to make professional wedding planning accessible to everyone. A personal and efficient way to make it easier for people to celebrate their love in a way that reflects their personal love story, and style, all within their budget and without the stress.
