Services offered

For ceremonies, receptions and rehearsal dinners, Bright Gray Events offers three packages designed to suit a wide variety of preferences and needs. Couples also have the choice to personalize their package. The three packages are:

DAY OF COORDINATION

This package is for the couple who has spent countless hours and sleepless nights curating and designing every detail of their wedding day. Rather than hiring family and friends, creating more stress and having unexpected incidents, they want to sit back and take in every moment of this special day, with no responsibilities. By choosing the BGE Team, we can make that happen for you. We will treat your wedding day like our own, we will review, finalize all details and take over coordinating and communicating with you vendors and create a detailed timeline to make sure you day runs effortlessly. We will oversee all the little details you may have forgot, or you didn’t even know about, of course keeping your best interest and vision in mind.

    Highly recommend this company!

    Amanda and her team were absolutely amazing! I did not have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. The ceremony and reception were set up exactly as I had envisioned. Everything was well organized and ran on time. I cannot say enough good things about this company. Having a day-of coordinator was the best decision we made. They allowed us to just enjoy our day together without having to worry about anything else. Would highly recommend this company!

    Amazing experience from start to finish!

    I hired Amanda and her team at Bright Gray Events for partial planning and day of coordination for my wedding last year and it was an amazing experience. Her combination of organization and design expertise helped us plan the wedding of my dreams! I couldn’t have done it without her and would recommend the team without any hesitation!

    Where do I begin to thank Amanda & her team. From day one we hit it off right away and I knew she was exactly what I needed for our big day. Her professionalism, speedy reaponses and positive attitude kept planning and the day perfect. The best part was when I was told "even if something does go wrong, you won't know about it!"... yes! Thank you SO much Amanda, I am so grateful we met and you were such a huge part of our day. I would highly, highly recommend her services.. you will not regret it!

    Amanda at Bright Gray Events was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. It was great to get her help, insights and creative ideas for our wedding planning. It's amazing how many things go into planning a big event and I know it wouldn't have been as beautiful or gone as smoothly without her help! On our big day I didn't have to worry about anything, she took care of coordinating all the vendors and set up and take down. I would highly recommend using Bright Gray Events!
