Services offered

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.

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.

Our Day of Coordination package begins 6 weeks prior to your wedding day (timeline is flexible based on your needs).

    Helpful every step of the way

    5 stars just doesn’t seem enough for Amanda. I hired her as my DOC for my September 2020 wedding, but Amanda seriously went above and beyond. Working with her up to the day was amazing. She was super prompt with answering any questions I had and was extremely organized. I really don’t know how she does it especially with all her kids at home! She’s very easy to talk to & has a lot of helpful suggestions that put the perfect touches on my day. For the wedding day itself she made sure the whole day was relaxing and flowed perfectly. I literally did not have a single worry or concern the entire day because Amanda made me feel that I could completely trust her to take care of everything. She has the perfect eye for putting things together. She took my vision for the reception hall & really made it come to life with her attention to the little details. It was even better than what I imagined. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone!

    Amazing DOC!

    We hired Amanda to be the DOC for our October 2019 wedding, and it was the best decision we made (other than saying I DO!). She was a dream to work with from the very first email, to the last hug goodbye. We gave her a vision and she created a setup more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. With Amanda as or DOC, she made the day completely stress free. This allowed us to enjoy the day with all our friends and family and not have to worry about a thing. We are so grateful to have crossed paths with Amanda and highly recommend her services!

    Hi Kim!
    Thank you so much for your kind words. We were honored to be part of your big day. Thank you for choosing us and allowing us to put forth your vision! Xo

    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!

    No regrets! Would recommend!

    Amanda and her team definitely made the night stress-free. We must admit we weren’t so sure about hiring a wedding coordinator but we are completely sold. We really appreciate how blissfully ignorant we might have been to any problems or moments of tension because Amanda was handling it all. This meant that our family and friends could also enjoy the night just as much as we did. A big thank you!!!

    Oh you guys!!! Thank you so much for your special words. We LOVED spending time with your family and friends. Thanks for choosing us! Xo

    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!

    You were an absolute dream to work with. Not only did i have the pleasure of working alongside you, i also have the newest pleasure of gaining a friend. Thank you for your kind words.

    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!

    Amanda was a dream come true! If you're thinking of hiring her for your special day, please know that it is worth every penny!

    When we interviewed Amanda for a day-of coordinator, my mom and I fell in love! If you want to just enjoy your wedding day like you're a guest (and allow over-thinkers/helpers like your mom or friends) to also relax, hire Amanda! Her experience and professionalism is note-worthy and all interactions with Amanda were smooth and seamless! Thank-you!
