My (now) wife and I needed a wedding planner to help us put together our ceremony on relatively short notice and long distance. One of the local resorts (The Sand Pearl) recommended several folks and Georgia's quick response and helpful attitude won hands down. Georgia was an absolute pleasure to work with and she helped create a wedding that Sarah & I will treasure forever. Thanks, Georgia!

From soup to nuts, she took care of everything. Georgia is the kind of person to be organized, professional yet fun through all the challenges. Everything was perfect and I didn't have to worry about a thing. She worked closely with the venue to work out our unusual table layout and through its challenges it fit right to the last centimeter. She coordinated with all the vendors from linens, floral, cake, DJ, drapery, etc and the night went very smoothly. She was always professional. The day-of she was the lead in all the decorating and what a transformation it was. The weather wasn't cooperating and she quickly jumped to Plan B without a hitch. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks Georgia!

We interviewed several wedding planners before we met with Georgia, and upon our first meeting with her, we knew we had found our planner. Georgia is the absolute best. Her attention to detail, creativity, flexibility, guidance and passion for what she does cannot be matched. They say there is no such thing as a "perfect" wedding. Well, we can tell you that our wedding was perfect. Whatever happened behind the scenes (we are sure there were glitches...there always are), neither we nor our guests ever knew. Georgia handled everything from start to finish diligently. Her recommendations for the various vendors we needed were extremely helpful and saved us a lot of stress (and some money too).

In short, she preserved our sanity by helping two people with no experience and only a basic idea of what we wanted have the wedding of our dreams practically stress-free. She is a true professional.

Georgia is exceptional. We live in New York and needed someone in Florida to help us plan our destination wedding. She made it very easy and helped us gather a group of professionals that made our wedding better then we had imagined. She allowed us to make our own decisions and also had brilliant ideas of her own that we incorporated into our special day. She set a pace for us leading up to the wedding that allowed us to pay attention to each step without overwhelming us. During the wedding she was gracious to our famlies while keeping everyone on time. We so enjoyed our wedding because we knew that we didn't have to worry about anything...because Georgia is so buttoned up. Our memories of our wedding is pure joy. No stress or last minute mishaps. And, we owe that to Georgia. From the time we called Georgia to the time we became man and wife....Georgia became a friend and someone we will always be grateful. Our guests are still talking about our beautiful wedding.

One of the best decisions for us was hiring Georgia as our wedding planner. Over our first few meetings, we knew that she wasn’t just going to be someone who was planning our wedding but someone we would become good friends with. She has such knowledge in her field and it was evident throughout the entire planning process. We thought we were creative but Georgia is on another level. Her network of vendors is also exceptional and when all was said and done, we had “The Dream Team”. With Georgia at the helm, we experienced “the best day of our lives” and will always remember it. We will always remember the little surprises too that she had for us. The little things really do go a long way! It was actually an enjoyable experience with minimal stress that wouldn’t have been possible without her. She took care of the stress and the fires and we never even knew about them. If you are planning a wedding, you MUST consider the use of a wedding planner. If you want the BEST in the business, Georgia Watson is the one you need to go with.

Georgia was amazing! She was so flexible. When rain was in the forecast she worked overtime to move my wedding up by 45 minutes the day of the wedding. She took care of everything that day and in the months prior to the big day. Planning a wedding was definitely not my strong suit I had no idea how to start. Georgia made it so easy! Our wedding day was perfect.

I am astounded by my own disappointment in this company and proprietress. We contracted Georgia based on her reputation as a professional. Her accolades are numerous, as herself promotion is unrelenting.

The contract was her to assist with vendor recommendations, basic planning and day of coordination. Georgia’s sales pitch was that by utilizing her relationships you would make up the difference of her fee. While I did use primarily her vendor relationships our savings did not amount to even half of her fee.

Weddings by Georgia, has an answering service that claims to be part of her staff. Our wedding date got pushed out. When issues where brought to her attention she did try to rectify them. However, actions speak louder than words.
As a planner she did not:
- Make sure that my parents and other important people were present for important things: cake cutting, bouquet toss, garter toss
- She did not fulfill verbal commitments
- Attempt to assist with Budget Management
- Assist with any aesthetic attributes to the wedding
- Did not confirm that appropriate tasks were done
- At the wedding she did not properly or tactfully manage my guest to the cocktail area. My Husband was very disappointed in this.
- Dress appropriately for a Black Tie Event
She also caused confusion between schedules for the bridal party and their schedules times to be at the venue, the order they stood in, and who walked who down the aisle, ushers vs. groomsmen. Her attention to detail was lacking.

If you do choose to hire make sure she is aware that she works for you!

The worst part was my guests actually said she was rude to them.

When I first set out planning my wedding I had lots of time and wasn't needing a planner. But Murphy's Law struck and suddenly I found myself having to change cities with half as much time to plan! As I was looking for a new reception site, one venue recommended Georgia Watson. At first I was skeptical, wondering whether or not I really needed a planner, even with the time crunch. Looking back now, I don't know where my day would have been without Georgia's help, especially toward the end of the planning process. I hired Georgia with a "pull it together" package rather than full coordination. This allowed me the freedom of her recommendation of vendors and her input on flowers, linens and the "look" of the event. I was so pleased with how the whole event came together! Her organization and style were impeccable and I was truly impressed. She went above and beyond in the last few stages of planning by executing an extremely detailed timeline and dealing with all last minute vendor confirmations. Perhaps the most important aspect of having Georgia as our planner was the relaxation we felt the day of the wedding, knowing that the event was in extremely capable hands, allowing us to simply enjoy the day. Georgia and her assistant dealt with any last minute issues with patience and grace. If you want to not have to worry about anything on the day of your wedding, hire Georgia Watson!
