Bright Occasions is the Best!
Margo with Bright Occasions is the best! She is incredibly organized, has tons of experience and connections, and great vision. Margo has a very calming presence yet will get everyone in line and take charge. She took the vague ideas we had and turned them into the perfect wedding for us. Our family and friends were shocked that we weren't more stressed leading up the wedding day, and we told them it was thanks to Margo. We couldn't have been happier with our wedding and our decision to hire Bright Occasions!Sent on 06/15/2019

We can’t say enough about how wonderful Margo was throughout the entire process of planning our wedding. We worked with her for partial planning for nearly a year and a half leading up to our wedding. Margo initially came recommended to us after we had asked our venue what wedding planners they preferred to work with and Bright Occasions was at the top of their list. It was essential to us that we had a planner as we work overseas in Taiwan and would only be able to make two trips back to the DC area prior to our wedding. Hiring Margo was the best decision we made when planning our wedding as she was always prompt in replying to our messages and was willing to skype/meet within our schedules (a twelve-hour time difference!). She also made sure that we stayed on track and helped with any etiquette questions we had as our situation was a bit different. Margo recommended some wonderful vendors that helped pull off our vision and made everything so seamless on our wedding day. We had several vendors comment to us that they really enjoyed working with Margo and were glad that we had chosen her as our planner.Sent on 07/18/2019
On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect and stress-free. She really exceeded our expectations as everything was so beautiful and well thought out in terms of timelines and set-up. Following our wedding, we had so many people comment on how wonderful everything was and that it was the best wedding that they have attended in years. We credit that to Margo who truly helped to make our vision a reality.

Margo is Amazing!
I can't even state how much I recommend Margo. She was so great throughout the year that we worked with her as our planner. Margo went above and beyond by recommending numerous vendors, solving problems that came up, and being very responsive. I live in New York and got married in Maryland. I also was starting a new job at the time when I got engaged. There is no way I would have been able to plan this on my own. From recommending the best vendors, to meeting with my mom and vendors when I was unavailable, to frequent phone calls, she was truly the best and easiest to work with. We also had a lot of issues with our venue and Margo made sure I was not stressed out and took care of any issue that came up. We loved her so much we are having her back to plan my sisters upcoming wedding !Sent on 07/19/2019
Margo is so *together* and just makes you feel very taken care of. Her couples are totally put at ease. She is very thorough in communication with vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page as a team. I enjoyed working with her and look forward to seeing her again ANYTIME!
Margo and her team are top notch. Everything from vendor selection, design to execution, is always flawless. Having her on your vendor team will create a completely stress free experience for you and your guests. They're worth every penny!
Margo and her team are phenomenal! Not only are the wedding designs stunning and a joy to photograph, but the day always runs smoothly. I always have all the information I need ahead of time, and they are very responsive to questions. Every wedding is a dream and I look forward to working with Bright Occasions each year!
