Services Offered

Happily Ever Laughter is the answer to what to do with children on your big day. Fairytale characters enchant little ones with whimsical activities so the grown-ups can relax and enjoy your wedding!

Equipped with engaging children's activities such as magic shows, face painting, balloon twisting, outdoor games, and obstacle courses, the Faeries, Pirates or other fantastical characters arrive at your event ready to WOW! When young guests are occupied, their parents can stay longer and really participate in making fond memories of your special day.

Each of Happily Ever Laughter's performers is an employee, not an independent contractor, so they've passed a background check and have liability insurance for every event (just in case their magic is a bit too powerful!). Most of the performers are CPR certified, and you can even request a certified performer for total peace of mind. Also, with a large but carefully selected and trained staff, they have the coverage to provide quality control and arrival guarantees!

Not only will the children have a blast, but the adults will love the touch of whimsy Happily Ever Laughter brings to your wedding day.

"Aside from actually getting married to my husband, they were my favorite part of my wedding."

"Our Faerie was punctual, professional, and a force of joy and positivity at our event. She was able to playfully engage the guests, both young and not so young."

"The type of care and quality they bring is unmatched. They are amazing, friendly and thorough."

"Happily Ever Laughter costumes are far superior to any others I have seen. They looked utterly delightful."

"They did a face painting activity for the kids. They painted wings on my back, children became faeries and monsters, adults even got in on it. Having them there added a sense of fun and playfulness to the whole event."

"We hired a Faerie to pose with guests in an interactive 3D photo booth we had made with puppets, props, and costumes. Faerie Paisley's presence brought the whole thing to life and took it to another level. The pictures turned out beautifully and the guests really seemed to enjoy it."

"I would absolutely recommend Happily Ever Laughter. I would have hired them for face painting as well if my husband hadn't nixed the idea. Maybe at our vow renewal!"

Questions and Answers

What 3 words best describe your work?
Engaging. Enchanting. Unique.
Why should someone hire you?
There are many ways we can bring whimsy to your wedding. From flowery Faeries to greet & seat your guests, to swashbuckling Pirates rushing in to surprise the children and whisk them away to a separate area during the ceremony, our suite of characters are ready to create magical memories on your wedding day. We make it easy to allow guests to bring children by keeping each child entertained with activities like Magic Shows, Puppet Shows, and Outdoor Games.
What are the common misconceptions about your services?
That we're just people in costumes *laugh*. Although our outfits are beautiful, the real magic is in the way we make people feel. We keep children occupied, and we allow guests to relax and feel comfortable. It's much easier to have fun when you feel that way.
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?
We noticed that often at weddings, guests left early, or only half of a parent team would attend because they couldn't find childcare. We wanted to make the answer to the question, "Should we have children at the wedding?" a resounding "Yes!"
Tell us about a favorite, unusual or very interesting moment at a wedding:
The ceremony had just started – music playing, groom at the altar, bride and her attendants lined up and ready to follow the flower girl...who just froze. She was terrified to walk down the aisle! We were seconds away from seeing a meltdown, but the Faerie took over and twirled down the aisle scattering the flowers and delivering the very relieved flower girl to her mom. It definitely set the tone of "we've all got this!" for the rest of the event.
