Thank you so much to Lynda for making my rehearsal dinner absolutely wonderful!
The rehearsal dinner was probably the easiest thing I planned since getting engaged! Lynda was so helpful and when some of my guest beat us to the dinner, Lynda was kind enough to walk them around the house and share with them the history of the house! They loved it! Everything was included in the LOW price. They prepared the linens, the centerpieces, the food station, and the bar (we provided the alcohol). She also made it so easy to come by before the rehearsal to drop off any decorations we wanted for the night. I would highly recommend this vendor to any bride or groom!

First of all let me say Lynda was an absolute pleasure to work with during the entire process of planning our rehearsal dinner. Because we lived out-of-town, it was important to us we worked with someone who was professional and believed in timely communication. Lynda and the staff at the GBH did not disappoint us at all! Lynda was very responsive to email and even accommodated a last-minute request to adjust the start time of our rehearsal dinner.

The menu selection was great and was by-far the hardest decision we had to make during the entire process. There are so many wonderful dishes to choose from and everyone raved about how great the food tasted. The linens, silverware, and centerpieces were included with the price which was a major relief for us. We didn't have to worry about bringing in outside vendors to put together a nice ambiance for our dinner...GBH provided everything. The historic house has extreme character and provides a nice, intimate setting which was perfect for a rehearsal dinner. We didn't want to take our out-of-town guests to a local restaurant, so the GBH was PERFECT!!!

If you are looking to host a dinner or reception in Columbus, GA, look no further than The Garrett-Bullock House. Lynda is a wonderful person to work with and has a beautiful spirit. She was very responsive and met all or our request to make our rehearsal dinner an unforgettable experience. JOB WELL DONE!!!!!

I LOVED having my wedding at The Garrett-Bullock House! It was the perfect balance of affordability and service. The price is not the cheapest in town, but it is pretty low, and you aren't just paying for the venue. When you pay for the venue, you also get tables, chairs, and linens, which can be pretty expensive if you have to rent them separately. You are also getting a full-service wedding planner with an awesome staff, which is something I didn't think I needed until I actually got into the planning process. It would have been so stressful without the PROS at the Garrett-Bullock House taking care of everything. They guide you through the process of finding vendors, but they are also pretty flexible about letting you find your own people if you prefer. They set up and tear down EVERYTHING to your exact specifications, even if they're a little weird :-) I hardly had to do any work on my wedding day, which was amazing! For a very reasonable price, I was able to relax and have a good time with my new husband, which is really priceless. I see that someone else got less than great service, but I just want to say that wasn't my experience at all. Maybe things didn't quite go perfectly for her wedding because Lynda wasn't there to orchestrate it all, but Lynda and MJ were there making everything go smoothly at my wedding and their whole staff was attentive and polite to me and my guests. I never thought I would be able to afford to have such a nice, professionally planned wedding, but The Garrett-Bullock House made it happen!

We loved every minute of our wedding at the Garrett Bullock House! The grounds are quiet and beautiful and the house is gorgeous inside and out. They paid attention to every detail and all of the staff were friendly, kind, and attentive. The food was excellent and we were very happy with the preferred vendors they suggested (florist, cake and DJ). Compared to similar wedding venues in the area, the Garrett Bullock House has a lot to offer for the money. Just having Lynda (the coordinator) helping with everything was a major benefit! She was great about answering questions and putting us at ease all through the planning process and the event itself. It was a perfect day and a beautiful, southern place to host my wedding.

The Garret-Bullock house was not my first choice for the venue of my small wedding but due to other difficulties I had with another venue we chose this venue. It was slightly more expensive but was worth the price. I don't live in Columbus and Lynda was great with responding to emails and really putting my vision into place. Planning was made a lot easier since they took care of the catering and food and all of those things. I wrote one check and everything was taken care of. The venue on the day of was set up to my description and the food was really tasty. However Lynda was not there on my wedding day, which I thought was weird, and the staff was very unpleasant. I didn't make this a big deal on my actual day because I was busy enjoying myself but I had a few guest tell other guest and myself that the staff was rude. I noticed this as well and just ignored it and just started getting my sister to coordinate different things that I wanted to do. I was pretty laid back about this but I know other brides or guest may not put up with rude service. That would probably be my only complaint, but its a pretty big one. I also tried to talk to Lynda about it but she never got back with me. I wasn't looking for compensation or anything because like I said they did everything as I wanted, they were just very rude.

You get what you pay for and it is beautiful inside and out - just wish the staff had been friendlier.

When I dreamed about my wedding day, I always pictured beauty, elegance and, dare I say, romance. The Garrett-Bullock House made every single one of those hopes and dreams come true. I have had many people tell me that I was one of the calmest, most relaxed brides they had ever seen. My answer to all of them was that I knew everything was in the hands and under the control of people who knew exactly what they were doing! All of those same people have told me how beautiful everything was, and I told them I couldn't take most of the credit. While I gave examples of flowers that I liked, picked out a cake and some other things, the preferred vendors at Garrett-Bullock House took my vision and ran with it to create my dream wedding and reception. I always felt like our wedding was sincerely important and not just another “cookie cuter” event. Their creativity, attention to detail and hard work amazed me at every turn. Their unique ideas added things to the day I would have never thought of and will always appreciate and remember. They helped create the most special day in our lives and will never be forgotten!

SIMPLY AMAZING I've reviewed the GBH in Google as well and will do my best to say something different here while highlighting the type of experience I had.
I went in with enough time so I was able to lock down the exact date I wanted. The staff worked with my vision from the get go guiding me through the pros and cons of each of my ideas and decisions. I loved their consultative and light-hearted style. The most important thing is that it was obvious they KNOW WEDDINGS! so I had no trouble trusting them to help me have the most beautiful day of my life (before my children's births). My day was absolutely perfect and hassle free. Not to mention that everybody LOVED our wedding.
