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!Sent on 12/02/2019

Best decision we made!
My husband and I decided to hire Margo about one year before our wedding and it was the best decision that we made. When we began thinking about our wedding, we both were adamant that we wanted a stress-free wedding and thanks to Margo, we had that experience! Margo understood our vision for the wedding and made it a reality by helping us find wonderful vendors. She was always easy to get in touch with and always made us feel like we were her only clients (which we knew was not the case!). She is also a lovely and kind person so it was a treat to spend time with her throughout the process and on the wedding day. We have been recommending Margo to everyone who we know that is planning a wedding. She is the best!Sent on 10/21/2019

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!
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.Sent on 08/31/2019
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!
