I am extremely surprised by the positive reviews on here. We initially went through Abhishek Decorators to plan my sister's sweet sixteen (not a wedding, but we had a big event with 350+ people). We worked with Mihir Thakkar, who is one of the most conniving people I have ever met.

We had initially chosen one venue and put down a deposit with Mihir to book his services for November 25th. A newer venue just opened near us though and we decided to change venues 1 week later. Because this was a different venue, we wanted to meet with Mihir again to discuss the necessary changes to our decorations.

When we met with Mihir and told him of the venue change, he became very defensive. He claimed he had already pre-ordered material that we were going to use in the other venue and that we would have to pay for this. Mind you, it had only been 1 week and he had never confirmed or checked with us to order this material. We also DID NOT sign any type of contract. This was the first we were hearing of this. Nonetheless, we asked if he could incorporate this into the newer venue. We also mentioned that we would not need some of the other decorations we had initially brainstormed because this newer venue provided many things (e.g. stage lighting, LED lighting). Mihir was extremely rude and started saying things like "this is a waste of my time" and "do you know how many high end clients I work with?" This was all because our decorating budget was not as high for the newer venue! Shortly after, he walked out on us and said HE didn't want to work with us anymore.

There was a girl with him, Namrata who tried to apologize on his behalf, but we were so fed up with his behavior and attitude that we just left. I have never in my life seen such poor customer service. Frankly, I can't imagine anyone working with Mihir.

We ended up going through a different decorating service, Rangoli and had a wonderful experience!

We would not recommend Abhishek. Here's why:
1. Mihir Thakkar: he's the guy in charge, and at first he's charming and convincing about their services. He used lines like "we're booked for all the weekend dates except yours" and "we supply mandap materials to all the companies around the world." The second we signed, we started getting pushback from him. At one point, Mihir gave me attitude in front of my family simply because I asked him to suggest ideas rather than show me the 4-5 setups they have in their showroom. It's sad because we worked with Abhishek 10 years ago for my sweet sixteen when it was run by Nikhil...and they were so much more professional back then!
2. They don't own up to their mistakes. At Hindu weddings there is typically a gate outside the doors to your venue or ballroom, which Abhishek was supposed to match to our mandap colors. Unfortunately they didn't care to put in any effort on the gate that day, and we hadn't gone over specifics because we thought they knew what they were doing (i.e. empty promises from Mihir I suppose), so our gate ended up being a white wooden frame with a single white fabric draped over it. And it wasn't the good kind of minimalist. My dad was personally offended by it when he saw that our guests would be seeing that first and called Mihir to ask if he was proud of his work. Excuses.
3. The centerpieces. They set up a pretty nice mandap hall for us, even though they didn't use the colors we'd talked about for the mandap. And they were supposed to use the aisle decor again in the evening to decorate our cocktail room. We had chosen separate centerpieces to match our theme for the reception, but instead, the aisle decor from the morning was reused on our dinner tables as centerpieces. No decor in the cocktail room. I mean, come on.

We didn't complain to Abhishek afterward because we didn't want to nickel and dime and honestly I'd rather not hear his excuses again.
Maybe you'll have better luck!

WOW! I never really write reviews as I feel they can be biased, but I couldn't resist for Abhishek Decorators! Mihir and his entire team were absolutely amazing to say the least. I must have called them a million times for the smallest things and they were always responsive. I had actually called Mihir at 4am the day of as my mom was adamant on adding a kalgi (male bouquet) which by the way, my husband absolutely did not want and Mihir delivered. Unfortunate as it is, people only seem to write reviews when things go wrong and never when things go right. To the entire team of Abhishek Decorators, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my dreams come to life. I will definitely be sharing pictures and recommending you to all of my friends. I have five girlfriends so far who will be getting married next year and I will be sending them all your way! :)

From the very beginning, when we collectively decided to use Abhishek Decorators, we knew we were heading for something spectacular. As the bride to be sister, things can become quite stressful, so it was a sincere relieve for my entire family and I when Abhishek Decorators stepped in and took matters out of our hands. Abhishek's team Mihir was completely professional, helpful, accommodating and purely stress-free. Working with Mihir was the far best, he is very knowledgeable and very experience in what he does since we had no clue about wedding decors, Mihir helped us so much from picking the right colors, lighting, and suitable decorations for my sister’s wedding, she can be so picky at what she likes, but I was amazed he actually fulfill her wishes and her taste when it comes to the decors. Abhishek Decorators concept and design at my sister’s wedding was very unique, striking, eye-catching and just simply exquisite. The wedding decorations were amazing and everyone was impressed, we’ve got so much complements from mandap, reception stage, lighting, center pieces and other details. We have used Abhishek Decorators for our Hindu ceremony and reception and wouldn’t think twice in choosing them again in the future. It was above and beyond our expectations. Thank you Abhishek Decorators and continue doing an astonishing job!

I had a HORRIBLE experience working with Mihir Thakkar. He is so rude and does not know how to speak with customers. We went to him for an initial consult for my daughter's wedding and he basically told us our budget of 40,000 was too low for him. I would understand if he really does only work with high end clients, but he spoke to us was as if we were too low for him.

Abhishek did a wonderful job with our wedding and reception decor! They have a few kinks to work out in terms of their responsiveness and their transparency regarding pricing, but overall I was happy with their service because they got the job done, which is what you need from vendors. I am very detail oriented, and they were willing to sit down with me several times before the wedding and reception to go over the details of my event. If you are looking to work with them, I would recommend working with Pathik. He was the key contact for my wedding and was flexible and a pleasure to work with!

Used them for my engagement party and they were great. Fast and were ready for the party before I even arrived. Pricing can get a little expensive depending on which backdrop and center pieces you use. I would do research first before heading in blinde to any decorator. Still, Mihir is a great person to work with and he knows his stuff. I've used them in the past and I will continue to use them in the future.

We contracted with Abhishek Decorators to rent a four-pillar mandap (with fabric drapes and lighting) for our ceremony. This cost roughly $3000, not including flowers. They tried to charge an additional $1000 for fabric flowers (with the only choices being red or white fake roses), which in our opinion was ridiculously overpriced. They ultimately agreed to allow our wedding planner to supply our own flowers after she argued with them. Although the mandap was gorgeous and we were ultimately pleased with how it was assembled on our wedding day, we were very disappointed with Abhishek's poor customer service in the planning stages. When we were negotiating the contract, they promised we would be given a wide selection of fabric designs and colors to choose from at a later date. But after we paid the deposit, they did not deliver on their promise until our wedding planner intervened. We made an appointment to visit their studio to look at the available fabric choices - having told them in advance that we were interested in gold fabrics and wanted to see an arch-shaped backdrop they had previously shown us a photo of - but when we got there they only had two gold drapes hanging on the wall. When I asked to see more choices, they literally picked up an additional two gold drapes that happened to be heaped in a pile on the floor in the corner and told me that I could choose from one of those. When I asked where the arch-shaped backdrop was, they told me it was still in storage and handed me a black-and-white print-out of the photo of it. Their attitude seemed to me to be one of indifference and arrogance. After I reported this incident to my wedding planner, she pushed them to do the right thing and personally accompanied us to a second appointment with them at which they had at least 15 different gold drapes available to view. It should not have been this difficult to get them to cooperate in providing the service we had paid for. I would not recommend them to others.

My apologies for the late review. We got married on Oct 10 2015 and let me tell you the money we spent to have abishek do the decorations was money well spent. From soup to nuts Mihir and his team are by far the best in the business. They did everything from mandup to floral arrangements to centerpieces etc.. the service we received was incredible. Mihir I just want to say thanks for everything. Your work exceeded our expectations. For anyone that's taking abishek into consideration look no further and do yourself a favor and book this team.
