We are wedding professionals who make possible fabulous weddings on very reasonable budgets. We believe the bride should not be limping without an an arm and a leg after paying for the wedding expenses... To make your life easy, we aim to offer various service packages, available at our location or yours, however, you may choose any one service or any combination: officiant (minister), photographer, ceremony music (mini DJ), florist, planner, speech writer, and/or our wedding garden in Rosemount.

We are all passionate about helping to make weddings beautiful, memorable, and affordable events. We started in 2004 out of our own frustration in dealing with the "wedding industry": you must do this, you must buy all that, you cannot have the other... oh, and by the way, it only costs a billion.

Our services are priced to what we feel is a fair charge for the time we put in and our relatively low overhead costs. We're happy to meet with you as much as you need. Each service we offer is staffed by several professionals we you can rest assured that we'll be there, no matter what life brings between now and your wedding day... peace of mind that others cannot offer.

Maureen is our weddings scheduling specialist & customer service manager and she coordinates several wedding ministers and photographers, the florist, and the invitations ladies, who all work hard to deliver really nice wedding ceremonies and wedding photo albums at very reasonable prices. As she is a mom, she's really good at keeping us all in line.

Moreover, while we're always ready to share with you from our experience and give you our advice based on the experience of several hundred weddings, we also believe that your wedding should reflect your wishes and personalities, so, short of committing a misdemeanor, we'll do whatever you want for your wedding. Whether you want a pious or a pagan ceremony, dignified pictures or downright wacky, traditional readings or modern poems, or want your recessional to be something by Snoop Dog, hey, we're here for you, and just for you!

We provide a number of wedding services at any location of your choice. While we have a wedding garden and reception hall in Rosemount / Eagan, and a wedding chapel in Farmington / Lakeville, we travel far and wide on a quest to create the Fab Wedding you have dreamed of. We've done weddings from Brainerd to Milwaukee, and from Lutsen to Des Moines and have many written thank you cards from customers to show that we deliver happiness :)

Any of our services can be purchased individually at very good prices. In addition, we offer service bundles, which save you not only even further discounts, but also headaches and time. Visit our website for a complete list of services and price points.

If you wonder whether we can do, add, or remove anything... yes, we can! Just ask, suggest... your wedding is about you, and we know it!

Fab Weddings on a Budget: Survive the wedding planning madness and the cost insanity, and actually enjoy your wedding day! Read less

What an amazing experience. Rev. Maverick was unbelievably fun and entertaining. Truly engaging and never once made a mistake with the service we wrote (not just the vows) ourselves at the last minute. We used Cindy as our photographer and although we have't seen the pictures just yet, I have high hopes as she treated the whole affair as if she was personally invested. Everyone on the team we worked with was so friendly and helpful. Cindyrella's Garden was absolutely beautiful with a clear view of a cute pond for an even more stunning backdrop. We picked out our invitations, flowers, cake, food and decor with near ease using a team of overly knowledgeable people who not only took our circumstances seriously, but provided professional opinions to help us make the best decisions. DJ Bill made the dinner and dance a little more special by allowing us to pick out music to fit the atmosphere we were hoping to achieve. We never had to worry about how the cake or flower deliveries were going to be handled and at the end of the night our only responsibility was to make certain we had collected the gifts and the personal pieces (the guest book for example) we had added. All of the clean up was handled by a crew and we didn't have to give anything a second thought. They recently built a new venue that is beautiful and can hold larger events but for the 200 people or less, Rosehenge was perfect. Both venues are wired just for events like these and as we all know, the details make the difference. Because the sound system is wired throughout, even the tables in the back could hear without straining. Party lights and a fog machine really bring out the party animals in us all and some of us need all of the encouragement we can get. Do not underestimate this company. They take the worry out of the worst part of the planning stages and bring out your personality to make your day be that much more special.

Fab Weddings was incredibly awesome to work with. They made booking an officiant easy and we felt incredibly relaxed and stress free working with them. The Vow Master has to be the greatest tool on earth. We knew exactly what our ceremony was going to look like and were able to customize it to fit us. Our guests had a great time and LOVED our ceremony. Huge thank you to Rev. Maverick and Rev. Hamer for making our day great!!

We worked with a wonderful photographer, Mona, from Fab Weddings. She was easy to schedule with and very professional. The cost was affordable and would definitely recommend if you are trying to find a more affordable photographer.

I found Fab Weddings while doing online research as I was traveling to the St Paul/Minneapolis area for my wedding. What a great idea to have a type of one stop shop to plan your wedding! I booked the cake, flowers, and an officiant through Fab Weddings, and I am incredibly satisfied with them. My review would have been a 5, but I did have a bit of a problem/confusion with what I ordered HOWEVER, Fab Weddings was so professional - they corrected the error and everything was smooth sailing after that. I would really recommend them - great experience. : )

Heather, of the floral team at Fab Weddings, was fantastic. She heard me out via e-mail (my communication preference) endlessly until I finally made up my mind and my flowers were GORGEOUS. I'm not sure if this is common knowledge that I didn't have I just would have wanted to know that the boutonniere's would open up during the day (maybe it's weather dependent?).

George Maverick is a saint. We started working with him directly as we didn't feel a connection with the primary Fab Weddings salesperson and he truly made our day amazing. After communicating with him for a few months regarding our reception we asked him to be our officiant and he was a perfect choice! He was smooth, professional AND fun, plus he made sure we knew exactly what we were doing from walking down the "aisle" to our exit. For the reception, we frequently e-mailed and eventually had a meeting with George for some final wedding planning and overstayed our appointment time by an hour and he never blinked an eye. When, at one point, I became a little stressed with preparation as we got closer to the wedding he called and asked if we wanted to meet with him and go over the details again. Very accommodating and reassuring... and very patient with me!

Our reception at Rosehenge Hall was AMAZING. It looked beautiful (and it was setup exactly how I envisioned it thanks to Tameka and her crew!) and our guests were impressed. Any minor bumps we ran into during the night were quickly made up for and we just had the best time. Not to mention - we couldn't beat the package and it's price tag.

Photobooth - a guest favorite! Our only glitch was that it ran out of toner a few hours into the night and it seems that the replenishment process was not properly explained to all attendants at the hall so it took a while to get back up and running. Still, our guests loved it and had a blast! I do wish we could have personalized our photo strips a little bit more - but awesome nonetheless.

I cannot say enough good things about Fab Weddings - our wedding was perfect!! Maureen was wonderful to work with on the back-end planning prior to the wedding. She took the time to conduct several tours of the venues for my husband and I - and then for me, my mom, and 2 personal assistants. George was amazing - he was professional, warm, fun, and very on top of every detail - he made the experience a true joy. The venues are gorgeous and I loved how the chapel could be held as a back-up to the garden in case of inclement weather the day of the wedding. Anytime I had a question during the year plus that I was in contact with Maureen & George, I received a quick response that was always helpful and conveyed that they truly cared about my wedding being exactly what I wanted. And it was!! The garden venue is gorgeous!! All of my guests commented on it. The cottage for the bridal party to get ready in was absolutely perfect and all of the spots on the grounds for photo ops were perfect. Tameka and Laura were wonderful to work with at the hall - making sure every detail of the reception was perfect - and again it was!! They also were caring and took the time to get to know us. Bill Young the dj was awesome and kept the party going!! Overall my husband and I were blown away by Fab Weddings. My family and I truly feel that George and the rest of the team are now lifelong friends who went above and beyond to make our wedding day special.

We had a wedding in Cindyrella's Garden, followed by cake and appetizers at the chapel. Everything was beautiful! The garden has lots of great spots for pictures, some good seating under trees for people to gather and chat before the ceremony starts, and of course the ceremony area is just gorgeous!

I was happily surprised at the decorations they added to the reception space. I knew they were providing table linens and sashes for the chair backs, in the colors we wanted - but when I walked in and saw the fishbowls with floating candles, some glitter floral strands, and that our table had glowing lights, I was thrilled! It was just right to add a nice look without going overboard.

The food was great, too. Gina from Farmington Bakery did a great job with our cake. I am not sure what company handled the appetizers, but their stuffed mushrooms especially are delicious, and everyone else must have thought so, too, since there were barely any leftovers! My mom loved the sparkling pear juice that they picked as well and wants to get some for her own parties.

All in all, I am so happy we went with Fab Weddings :)

Joan Brochman was my photographer and I must say she impressed me. She knew I was nervous about how much time we had to get all the shots in and she stepped up and took charge of all the scatterbrained people in my wedding party and we got all the shots before sunset. She was nice, funny and a joy to work with. I have not even seen the photos yet but I know they will be amazing! (If not, I will update my review Hahaha)

Reverand Strand was our officiant. He was nice, showed up on time and ready to go. My venue gave him a dead microphone so he had to yell the whole ceremony but he did great. His voice carries well! He also has a good sense of humor, and made the whole nervous event just splendid!

Fab Weddings as a whole has been wonderful to me through out the entire planning process. I planned my wedding in MN while living in Oregon and it was tough, but they were always there for my panicked calls to answer my questions kindly and patiently.

You guys played a huge role in my wedding, and truly made it fabulous! Thank you!

These guys did an excellent job! I found them through Weddingwire and was a little apprehensive at first when I heard the name of the company on the website, budgetweddings.com. Soooo glad I took the time to browse their info and give them a call!
We used Rev Schaal and he was so amazing. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. We still have friends and family tell us how much they enjoyed it because he kept it light, personal and fun!
I highly recommend this company for your wedding!

We had a fabulous fun family wedding that was completely stress free!
Guests liked that the chapel was nice, quaint, clean, decorated but not too formal. Your service was touching (and not too long). Families liked that they were allowed to have individual family photos. We had a great day. Steve and I loved the simplicity of it all - we didn't have to do anything but send a check and show up. Your staff were very helpful and answered all our questions.

It was a great day!

If anyone asks, I will highly recommend your chapel and packages.
