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

Margo is Marvelous
Margo made our dream wedding a reality. I seriously don't know how to tell you how awesome she is. I was initially on the fence about hiring a planner at all, because of the added expense, but it was hands down the best choice we made -- because of Margo. My only regret is that I didn't have her by my side right from the start!Sent on 08/31/2019
I started referring to her as Marvelous Margo about a month in, and with every single interaction, she re-validated that nickname. She is the perfect combination of creativity, organization, and calm. She took my random Pinterest musings and overly vague ideas and turned them into something truly magical. She was also great at helping me think through budgeting and was mindful about my financial constraints without ever making me feel self-conscious. She was especially *marvelous* with advice on where to cut costs and where to spend maybe a little extra.
I may have to plan a wedding 2.0 just because I'm going to miss her so much. Hire her. NOW. You will NOT regret it.

The greatest planner in the DC area
I’ve worked alongside Margo for almost five years and when I got engaged, I couldn’t picture working with anyone else to plan my wedding. Margo was professional at every turn, was responsive to emails and texts, and helped us bring our vision to life. So many of our guests commented on her positive demeanor during the wedding; she was informative without being pushy (as I’ve seen far too often at other weddings I’ve attended). She was incredibly understanding of our cost constraints, as my fiancé and I were paying for the majority of the wedding ourselves. She had great ideas, solved problems quickly, and made my wedding day experience perfect. I am so lucky to have had Margo and her team with me throughout the day.Sent on 08/06/2019
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!
