    Hire Margo! It'll be the best planning decision you make

    We were beyond happy with Margo and the team at Bright Occasions. Margo is exactly what you want in a wedding planner - she is thoughtful, responsive, well-connected, and has a calming presence. We are two very busy people who didn't really consider ourselves "wedding people" and Margo helped us plan a perfect event that felt true to us. She is also exceptional at managing people. All our vendors knew exactly where to be and we had multiple folks mention that they were thrilled to be working with Margo. She is also great at helping to manage and organize families and wedding guests. Our mother of the groom even remarked that she would follow Margo anywhere. We, too, would follow her anywhere!

    The Bright Occasions

    From the first intriductory phone call to the last moments of the wedding day, Margo was an absolute dream. Her calm demeanor and attention to detail was wonderful. There was never anything that we asked of her that wasn't met with "of course". She has a great relationship with many DC/VA vendors which was an added bonus .

    Thank you Margo for all your hard work in making the wedding everything we had hoped for..I would highly recommend Margo and her team when youre looking for a wedding planner..

    Exceptional Planner!

    Margo from Bright Occasions was an absolute life saver!
    We reached out to her after needing to change our wedding plans last minute due to COVID. Just 5 weeks from the wedding she helped us start from scratch after already having a full wedding planned. Within 24 hours we had 5 venues to look at, all within a limited budget. She was professional, reliable, and very quick to help when we needed it. I would highly recommend anyone in the DMV area use Bright Occasions to help plan their wedding!
