The best!!!

I would highly recommend that anyone planning an event enlist Margo and the Bright Occasions from day one! Margo is professional, empathetic, organized, and experienced. My fianc茅 and I were both extremely busy in the months leading up to our wedding. Margo helped us navigate the planning and get things in place, while always being patient and understanding. She worked with us to create an event that was exactly what we had in mind and reflected our preferences and tastes. She brings to bear significant expertise and great connections with reliable vendors. At the same time, she was always responsive to our thoughts, style, and desires. She kept track of a million moving pieces. In addition to making the logistics of the wedding manageable, she made the planning overall more fun! She is both a crackerjack planner and a kind, lovely person. You will love working with her.

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..
