    Mary is the best!

    Mary Palacios more than exceeded our expectations. She made our special day perfect. We spoke with her almost a year in advance of the wedding and she explained all the different services they offer. I was expecting not to need a planner at all, and to do a lot of planning myself. Even with all of the DIY invitations and decorations, etc., but hiring her was the best decision we made.

    My husband and I have crazy schedules and Mary was flexible with us. We had calls every so often and exchanged emails often. she was such a pleasure to work with. She had great ideas we hadn't considered and executed a lot of details flawlessly. She took our ideas and brought them to life.
    We had many moving parts and lots of different vendors that were unfamiliar with the venue. Mary communicated well with them and helped everyone work together cohesively. She kept me calm on wedding day and kept everyone on schedule. She lives nearby our venue and had worked there before, so when the venue contacts were continuously unresponsive, she was able to go to the resort and get answers for us.
    From the first call through wedding day, I stressed less and enjoyed more because Mary was there to help. Thank you Mary!!!

    Best Wedding Planner

    Hiring Julia was the best decision I made - she was my favorite vendor by far! I am very type A personality and Julia went above and beyond my expectations. She kept everything (and me!) in line on the wedding day, which left me to enjoy. If you make one wedding decision - make the right one, hire Julia/Blue Water Weddings

    The Best Wedding Planner in South Florida

    I recently worked with Julia and her team at Blue Water Weddings for our wedding in Islamorada last month, and the experience was amazing. Being that I've been a bridesmaid in 7 weddings throughout my life, I was very clear that working with a planner was necessary to my peace of mind as a bride.

    We are so glad that we went with Julia because she anticipated any problem or logistic that might arise and was ready to handle it; of course, there were not any problems because we had Blue Water doing its thing from the very beginning. I hired them for their full planning and design services and do not regret it at all. Literally, I did not have to worry about anything with the budget because they had it all under control at all times. She only gave me choices for things that would fit in the budget without making me feel like I was skimming down or having to say no to something.

    As a designer, Julia has a real gift of getting what a bride's personality is from the start. She connected us with awesome caterers and florists to really pull off a colorful, eclectic, elegant wedding in the Keys. She even came to do in person meetings with me to go over design and details that were important. Those were the most fun!

    A highlight of mine and everyone else's was that my groom came into the ceremony by boat! Our venue had a marina and she saw this possibility for him and our ring bearer and best man to come in on our vintage Shamrock. It was a hit! We have great footage and will never forget that.

    Even last minute things that I saw on Pinterest, like a special seating chart, she and her team were able to do for me so that my day was awesome. If there were any issues with anything the day of the wedding, I did not even know because she was very calming and made sure that I enjoyed the day. Thank you Blue Water!
