We absolutely loved working with Margo! It was a wonderful experience and the absolute best decision we made in planning our wedding. After seeing a wedding Margo had done featured in the Washingtonian, I knew she was the planner for us, and our initial meeting confirmed it. From the very beginning, I felt like she really understood what our (sometimes vague) vision was for our wedding and how to turn it into reality. She recommended amazing vendors for us, and was always available for questions and to provide a calm, reassuring voice if I had a moment of indecision or wedding-related anxiety. Margo also has an incredible eye for design. Assistance with the look and feel of our wedding was one of the main reasons we decided to hire a planner, and Margo did not disappoint. Her input and ideas on every element of the decor were amazing and we, and our guests, were totally blown away by how everything came together on our wedding day. It was so beautiful. The best compliment we received about our wedding was how the day just "felt like us", which is exactly what we wanted and is 100% because of Margo.
Margo also truly cares about her clients You are not just business to her. We already knew this after a year of working with her, but it became even more apparent when I received a pretty devastating medical diagnosis just before our wedding. Because we weren't sure at first if we would be able to go to last-minute things like the venue walk-through, or even have the wedding at all, we shared the news with Margo and she went above and beyond for us in those last couple weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure everything would be perfect. Knowing that we could trust her with any last-minute decisions and tasks allowed us to remain stress-free about the wedding and focus on everything else we had going on. I cannot express how appreciative we, and our families, are that we had her as a resource.
Thank you so much for everything!!

Couldn’t have done it without Margo
Margo and her team are so organized, thoughtful, and calming - we never doubted that they wanted us to have the best day of our lives. We instantly felt more relaxed when we started working with Margo for month-of coordination. She helped us with last minute requests (such as finding a videographer 4 days before our wedding), participated in numerous phone calls with vendors and kept everyone and everything on track. Margo is a rock star and we and our families are so happy Bright Occasions was a part of our wedding!

The best decision we made.
Working with Margo and her team at Bright Occasions was such a pleasure! Margo was very responsive and proactive in helping us coordinate our wedding day. Every time we needed to make a decision, Margo was there to guide us and answer questions. We really appreciated her attentiveness and thoughtfulness down to the last detail. Our wedding day went so smoothly, and we felt at ease knowing Bright Occasions was there to help. We had a great time, and our guests did too!
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!
