Mili are her team are great to work with. Seamless execution and preplanning with handling of all issues prior to, during, and after the event. We had a unfortunate event with one of our vendors not showing up to our reception at all and Mili's exceptional handling led to us not even know the vendor was a no-show. Regardless of the issue big or small her team was there to take care of it - to make sure we enjoy our wedding time and they truly do everything above and beyond of what they need to. I would strongly recommend her and her team to anyone getting married.

Mili Shah and her team were excellent! We worked with her 30 days prior to the wedding and reception, and she would still respond to messages weeks after the wedding! She did a wonderful job; always responding within minutes, even if it was a "hey I will get back to you in 5
Minutes". Her and her team were very
Professional, always had answers
For anything we wanted to know, handled every situation with grace and calmness. During the reception there was a slight mix up but they made sure we wouldn't come to know of it and handled the situation perfectly. During the redeption she made sure we were okay the whole time, got us food, water, desserts, and when we said we were okay for now she packed it up and sent it to our room to make
Sure we ate by the end of the night. We would Highly recommend Mili and her team to anyone who wants a successful and well planned event!

Planning Elegance is an amazing team to work with during the tedious process of wedding planning. Mili and her team of experts were absolutely fantastic. I had the privilege of working with Mili the month prior to my wedding. She was very helpful in taking over multiple tasks, including contacting my vendors and finalizing all details, helping me format the sequence of events for the reception program, providing a very detailed and organized wedding/reception timeline, and most importantly being attentive to my personal needs and making sure she always responded in a timely manner in which she ALWAYS DID! I also loved the fact that on the day of the wedding she had an assistant constantly with me and my bridesmaids and she made sure all of our needs were taken care of. Mili and her team definitely made our wedding day a very smooth and effortless process. Thank you for everything. We appreciated it! Plus, we enjoyed the marvelous shots you were able to capture :)

The best decision I made during the whole wedding planning process was to hire Mili Shah from Planning Elegance. I am truly blessed to have met her and work with her during this year long journey in planning the wedding of my dreams. And yes, it was definitely the wedding of my dreams. In addition to her professionalism, Mili's best quality was that she was the bride and her family's biggest advocate. If we were not happy with vendor packages, prices, etc., she did her best to negotiate with the vendors to ensure we were getting the best deal for our money. She kept us within our budget. Mili was 100% reliable in completing her tasks and very organized. I never felt rushed or pressured to make major decisions. The wedding planning process was rather a fun excursion than a stressful chore. Mili was a delightful person to get to know and easy to talk to. She has a very calm demeanor which was a priceless quality as she was often the mediator between my father and me in handling our ideological differences for the wedding. I am so happy to call Mili my lifelong friend and someone that I can turn to whenever I need help planning an event. She keeps her word, is utterly genuine, down-to-earth and executes her tasks gracefully. There wasn't a single glitch on the wedding day. My family, friends, husband and I have only the fondest memories of our wedding day. I wish I could re-live my wedding day, because it was absolutely perfect.

The wedding planning process was rather a fun excursion than a stressful chore. Mili was a delightful person to get to know and easy to talk to. She has a very calm demeanor which was a priceless quality as she was often the mediator between my father and me in handling our ideological differences for the wedding. I am so happy to call Mili my lifelong friend and someone that I can turn to whenever I need help planning an event. She keeps her word, is utterly genuine, down-to-earth and executes her tasks gracefully. There wasn't a single glitch on the wedding day. My family, friends, husband and I have only the fondest memories of our wedding day. I wish I could re-live my wedding day, because it was absolutely perfect. Read less

I hired Mili 3 months before my wedding. I guess the 1 regret I have is not hiring her from the start!!! Mili was BEYOND AMAZING! I am totally type-a and would send her 1000 emails a day with all my scattered thoughts... and she would respond to EVERY SINGLE EMAIL! She would help me sort through all my wants/must-haves to get to where I really wanted to be for my wedding. Needless to say, she is incredibly patient! Also, she was great at involving my parents so that everyone's vision was heard, and then she would find solutions on how to get me what I wanted, while respecting other people's opinions.
She was so organized throughout the planning process which was reflected on the day of! everything went off without a hitch! everyone at my wedding complimented me on how well organized the wedding was, and how everything flowed so well.
I also love how she would give me her honest opinion (without being mean) when I asked for it. She has an eye for what looks good and what will work, so having her give me her true opinion, versus what I want to hear, really made decision making a lot easier as well.
quick story for brides-to-be: On the morning of my wedding, the DJ's truck broke down (coming from LA to SD). It was such bad timing, and it was looking like we weren't going to have any sound for the wedding! forget the mobile music station and dhol for the bharat, but the actual mic for the Priest and sounds for the wedding! OMG what a nightmare that would have been! Mili worked diligently that morning to convince the hotel to let us use their sound system, at no extra charge to me! the DJ and the Dhol player got in a car and made it within minutes of the bharat starting! Best part, I HAD NO IDEA THIS WAS GOING ON! Mili and her team handled it beautifully behind the scenes so I was stress free all morning!

moral of the story: HIRE MILI! She's definitely worth every penny, and more!

Mili was amaaaaazzzing!!!! I could not imagine having our wedding without her. Working with her was a joy and she was so professional, responsive, organized, and most importantly so incredibly supportive. It was really important that both me and I my husband and our families could enjoy the wedding without being stressed out and she completely delivered on making all the events run smoothly and allowed us to just enjoy our wedding time. We were living in NYC and the wedding was in California and I was so happy that I could trust Mili to go to meetings and meet with vendors and make sure that all my needs and wants were met. Mili was available anytime I wanted to talk and always had answers to my one millions questions. In addition, she worked beautifully with our families and made everyone feel so comfortable and involved. I cannot recommend her and planning elegance highly enough. If you want the best, go with Mili and planning elegance!

My Husband found Mili for me,at first I was not too happy that he thought I could not handle putting together my daughters wedding.i am so happy he hired Mili, there are so many detail that go with planning a wedding that most of us overlook Mili was right there with time lines on what needed to be done. On the wedding day all I did was attend to my guests the rest was taken care of by Mili and her staff. If I did not have Mili!s help. I would have been a chicken without a head on my daughters wedding day instead it was the best day of my family!s life cause all we did was enjoy the wedding like a guest THANKS TO MILI AND HER STAFF

Mili and her staff provided us with some much needed guidance and professionalism that was needed during the rough seas that was the planning of our wedding.
What we ended up was a wedding that went near flawlessly and a special day n' night that my wife and I will never forget.
Would highly recommend the people of Planning Elegance for your Wedding/Event Planning any day of the week.

Mili and Sarah were the lead coordinators for my sister's 800+ person wedding and they did an excellent job. They were on top of everything once they got involved and really helped pull everything together. We came across issues with our venue just a few weeks before the wedding and their experience and patience was helpful in dealing with a stressful situation. There are so many things to deal with, I can't imagine what it would've been like without their organization.

The entire team was very professional and did a great job of making sure the entire weekend went smoothly. We received a lot of compliments for such a great wedding weekend, but the biggest compliment goes to Mili, Sarah and Planning Elegance team.

We got the month-of coordination package from Planning Elegance for our garba, wedding, and reception and we were very happy with their services. Mili and Sara were amazing - they were organized, professional, and ensured that everything went off without a hitch. Even when we were interviewing coordinators, Mili and her team stood apart - she came prepared to the meeting, showed us concrete examples of tools they had used for other weddings, and took the time to learn about our event and goals. We had quite a big wedding (800+) and we were using a non-traditional venue so there were a lot of small and big details to keep track of and throughout the two days, Mili, Sara and the Planning Elegance Team made sure we didn't have to worry about anything. My family and I had spent a lot of time figuring out many of those details in advance and it meant a lot to me that their team paid close attention to each of those details. As my brother noted in his review, we had some issues with the venue just a few weeks prior to the wedding and Mili and Sara were very flexible and professional in addressing those issues with us. Even though we only had one face to face meeting in our contract, they made another trip out to sit down with us and the venue. Mili and Sara were so organized, attentive, responsive, and professional throughout the weekend - they determined what was needed and got the job done. By taking care of all the coordination, they allowed our family to enjoy the events without any stress and we definitely would not have been able to that without their help. I would hands down reccomend them for any event you are having. Also, compared to other planners we met with, I have to say, they were the most reasonably priced given the high quality of services they provide.

Our daughter got married a month ago and Mili and her team helped us coordinate her 550 guest wedding as well as 350 guest henna ceremony. Many friends who attended the events have said to me that I looked so calm and happy at the wedding and that 'I' should be a wedding coordinator, a testament to Mili's work.
I will admit that I was initially a bit skeptical about hiring a wedding coordinator. After all, I had done parties with several hundred people at our house so how different could a wedding be? Wrong, think again.

Mili was instrumental in helping me mainitain my sanity through the weding week and there were several instances where she positively saved the day. The biggest one being that when the wedding day dawned, bright and sunny, she texted me the hour-by-hour weather forecast at 7:00 a.m and even though I was hesitant she (thankfully) convinced me to move the ceremony indoors. Sure enough, it started pouring just after the barat arrived and the ceremony began!

Mili is calm, pleasant, dedicated and professional. She goes the extra mile and takes care of all the detais (and there are a zillion details!) on the big day so you can relax and actually enjoy the event. I would strongly recommend her to a friend and gladly rehire her when my other kids are getting married.

This review is long overdue.

Planning Elegance made my dream a reality. From day one of our wedding planning experience, Mili from Planning Elegance was always accessible for all my ridiculous questions and concerns. It was always easy to get a hold of her when I needed to reach out to a vendor or just needed my nerves calmed. Her suggestions and recommendations for my wedding day were very valuable, and I know I would not have had the wedding I did without her help.

My experience with Planning Elegance on the day of my wedding was amazing. Not only was everything taken care of and organized but also I had everything and anything I needed at my finger tips at a moment's notice. The team made my wedding day free of stress, letting me enjoy the best day of my life.

Thanks again Planning Elegance (especially Mili)!

Mili and her team were absolutely incredible.

Prior to the big day, Mili was very organized and made sure to collect all the information she needed in a professional and dependable manner. She took active notes during our conversations and I could trust that every detail would be taken care of. She made the extra effort to meet me in person, and used her experience to provide guidance on how the day will flow. She definitely brought lots of excellent ideas to the table that we might not have otherwise considered.

On the day of the wedding, Mili and her team were 100% on. They dealt with issues, made sure all the vendors were on time, and the details were right. She made sure our families knew where they needed to be, and would have refreshments ready for them when they got there. Multiple members of my family commented on how amazing it was to have her - everyone could enjoy the festivities without a worry. It was fantastic.

Thank you Mili and team for making our day so wonderful!!!

Planning Elegance did a spectacular job with my wedding and during the months leading up to it. I worked with Mili Shah who was an absolute pleasure. She was on point with everything, very responsive, and always had suggestions and solutions for any and all of my planning needs. On the day of my wedding, I didn't wait longer than a blink before my needs were met. My entire family was relaxed and was able to enjoy the events to their fullest. My assigned team worked tirelessly to ensure that my husband, our families, and our guests had the most memorable experience! I couldn't speak more highly of planning elegance and I encourage everyone to use them. I am a very particular, type A individual, and I am still amazed at how planning elegance not only met my exceedingly high standards, but they surpassed them, as well.

Working with Mili was a wonderful experience. She’s friendly, easy to talk to, and most importantly, organized! Wedding planning might be the toughest thing any couple has to face early on. We had a wedding/reception on a larger scale at around 900 people, which was a huge undertaking for any one person to plan. Every time we met, she would provide us with updates and give us "homework" to keep us on task. She made herself available at all hours by phone and email and would even tell us when she would be out of the office at other weddings so we wouldn’t panic when we couldn't get a hold of her.

Something we valued greatly was how honest and ourselves we were able to be with Mili through out the planning process. It’s crazy to think how well Mili got to know us and there were even times where she would help us sort out our own "creative" differences. She was able to keep us on track with our budget and helped us a lot when we needed to get quotes from vendors or bargain for better prices. Mili and her company have a lot of experience and have a great reputation in the business. And that was obvious when vendors would offer us discounts and extra services when we mentioned that we were working with Planning Elegance.

When it came to the day of, Mili and her team were able to make sure everything went off without a hitch. It seems like there are hundreds of different moving parts to a wedding and reception, and we couldn't have imagined coordinating all of those things ourselves. For everyday of events, Mili provided our families and ourselves with minute-by-minute itineraries so we always knew where to be. We have talked to other couples who claimed they didn’t eat at their own events. Well not us, Mili and her team always made sure we had food and after we spent weeks perfecting the menu and picking our vendors, we were glad we could enjoy it with our guests. We highly recommend Mili and her team! Thanks so much for making our wedding events such a success!

I LOVE Planning Elegance! I hired them for my fusion wedding about 9 months before when I was a wreck! I thought I could do all the planning by myself because I knew what I wanted and I REALLY wanted to plan MY wedding MY way, I thought that hiring a planner would take the control too much out of my hands.

...I was totally wrong! As I became overwhelmed, one of my bridesmaids recommended Planning Elegance to me, she used them for her beautiful wedding. We contacted a few other too, but Mili from Planning Elegance got back to me the fastest, she answered all my questions, and was SUPER patient when my fiance and I were making the final decision on whether we should hire a coordinator or not.

After hiring Mili and her company, I swear I was SOOOOOO much more relaxed! She had check-off lists, an organized to-do list by month, spreadsheets, and budget suggestions that made my life of wedding planning/working as an accountant/being engaged A LOT easier. I got to make all the decisions without any of the research or stress, she didn’t force me into anything I didn’t want, but she gave me options for everything so that I could choose what I wanted.

On the wedding day Planning Elegance was impeccable, they were seriously the first ones at the venue and the last ones to leave. Me, my husband, and our families had an amazing time and our guests kept complimenting us on our coordinators. Hiring Mili was the best decision we made and I would definitely recommend her and Planning Elegance to EVERY SINGLE bride!! Thank you Mili!

On the wedding day Planning Elegance was impeccable, they were seriously the first ones at the venue and the last ones to leave. Me, my husband, and our families had an amazing time and our guests kept complimenting us on our coordinators. Hiring Mili was the best decision we made and I would definitely recommend her and Planning Elegance to EVERY SINGLE bride!! Thank you Mili! Read less

Planning elegance was our favorite and most pleasant vendor to work with. Book them ... They go above and beyond, they are very service orientated. U won't regret it!

Planning elegance stood out to us against other wedding planners due to their speedy, kind and personal response to our initial inquiry. Amy Patel called us almost immediately in response to our initial inquiry. She made a great impression on us with her warmth, consideration, and patients. She offered us help in negotiating with our venue before we hired her, yet she was not pushy in making us decide on her service. Our decision was made at that point and we had no regrets!

We were assigned Mili Shah as our main coordinator and Pinita as her assistant coordinator. At first we were anxious ... Could there be someone as kind and efficient as Amy? What can we say ... They all are perfectly amazing ... Wedding angels. I still can't get over how professional, organized, and detail orientated they are. They helped us plan our California wedding while we were in Connecticut and Arizona. We met Mili only once, one month before the wedding and went through endless emails and phone calls, and the wedding was flawless ... Not one hitch. Mili is very diligent and excellent! In addition, she is very personable, understanding and compassionate. She helped recommend vendors to us without being pushy and always soothed our nerves. Mili, Amy and Pinita planned detailed vendor meetings for us. We threw Mili a few last minute curve balls such a change in engagement photo shoot, ordering items within days of the event, and calling the photographer immediately for early wedding pics and she made it happen no questions asked. We saw and spoke to Mili more than anyone else at our wedding. She is so hands on, she personally got my bouquet to me, got me water when I was thirsty, food when I was hungry, made sure I was having fun at the wedding. She tied all loose ends to make it all come together perfectly. Most importantly, guests complimented us on how professional and excellent she was!

Without a doubt Mili and her team at planning elegance is our number one vendor recommendation. Trust us ... She will not let you down! and it was sad to say good bye at the end.

Absolutely fantastic!

Amy, Mili, Shivani, and the ENTIRE Planning Elegance team were instrumental in making our wedding absolutely perfect! There were no complaints from anyone involved in wedding planning, and nothing but compliments from ALL of the guests at the events about their work.
They made everything run smoothly and most importantly ON TIME!
They were always professional timely respectful and most importantly they were all personally invested in making sure our wedding was exactly what we had imagined.
Their work did not end with the wedding either. They sent us a packet with information on how to change my name for Social security, DMV, passport, etc.

They do an excellent job with their work and make the entire process of wedding planning MUCH easier, but most importantly they are wonderful people.

I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them to anyone getting married.
We still have guests 6 months after the wedding raving about what a great job they did.

Exceeded our expectations!!!

Where do I start?
I'm not even sure how I came across Amy, but am so lucky that I did. I had a fusion Hindu-Christian ceremony, and could not have pulled off the event without her.

Just a few words to describe her:
Professional, Unbelievably Organized, Calming (and brides do need someone that lets them know everything will be ok, haha,) Persistent in dealings with the venue and other vendors, and her Follow-Up is impeccable down to every spreadsheet and document she provided. She did all of this while maintaining her pleasant demeanor and shared her abundance of knowledge in wedding planning and events...well, I can go on and on, but to say Amy was a great addition to my vendors would be an understatement. She went above and beyond what I expected and handled every situation with finesse. Both families as well as myself and my groom were so happy with her and will recommend her to others without hesitation.

She made the days up to the wedding run smoothly and the grand event go on without any hiccups.

To say the least, she was one of my unofficial bridesmaids by the end of our beautiful day and while it sounds silly, I will miss our calls and meetings tremendously...so much that I am trying to get her to extend her services of wedding planning to baby planning as well :)
5 starts, A+, amazing planner

Planning Elegance was a blessing to work with. Amy’s hard work, time and dedication in planning our perfect day will never be forgotten. She worked hard in making sure my vision was portrayed exactly as I had wished for. On the day of, Mili, the head coordinator was always on top of things. She was there to handle every little problem that occurred. Our day passed by so smoothly that we never even realized the night was over. All our family and friends enjoyed the event and could not stop complementing the perfect coordination we had throughout the day. My MOH could not believe she had no responsibilities since Mili had taken over so many of her tasks.

Overall, handling an 800+ Indian wedding is NOT an easy task and Planning Elegance made it possible. My Big Fat Indian Wedding could not have been possible with Amy , Mili and their wonderful team!!

I think that planning elegance did a good job with planning the event. I had a three day traditional wedding and each day was planned out incredibly well. I also thought that Amy did a good job contacting vendors and making sure they had everything they needed. However I think the days of the event lacked a good job with day of coordination. I needed the planner to a little bit more assertive to direct people. I also spent nearly double my budget and I think that this should have been addressed when provided vendors to choose from. Overall I believe that the service I received was truly what I paid for.

We had Amy start helping us several months before the wedding. She kept us on track so that we had everything organized on a timeline. She was always easy to reach by phone or email and even in person! She helped us coordinate the vendors; our hotel coordinator was please with how prepared our vendors were. On the day of the wedding, it was and cold outside and she moved the wedding indoors without any delay in our wedding. Our friends and family have told me that they were so impressed how our organized our event was and that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. We were impressed because we had so much fun at our own wedding...We would highly recommend Amy and her team.

We want to thank Amy Patel and the Planning Elegance team for making our events as successful as they were!! :)

My hubby and I set out to do what seemed like the impossible - a Hindu wedding, a Sikh wedding and a reception all in one day and at two different locations. We knew we would need help aside from family to keep the day from going haywire. We had met a few coordinators before I met Amy. My connection with her was instant as her warm personality, her strong work-ethic and her commitment to her job shined through in our first meeting. We had a vision on how we wanted to see the day play out but that meant we needed to be extremely detail oriented and work with someone who could understand what we needed - Amy was that person.

Amy was always available to us by any form of communication at any time of the day. She never pushed us into choosing any specific vendor and always provided insightful suggestions. Luckily for us we had Amy's entire team on hand on the day of the wedding and they were able to flawlessly work with our fabulous vendors. We and our families were able to enjoy all of our events without worrying about any of the details.

Amy is a true gem - her dedication to her job and her clients is evident from all the events she has coordinated and the many long lasting relationships she has maintained. We are so fortunate to say that not only can we call Amy, our wedding planner; but a new lifetime friend.

Wishing you much continued success Planning Elegance!!

FYI - Amy and her team are available to do events throughout California!

Planning Elegance - and in particular owner Amy Patel - was essential in making my wedding day an amazing success. We hired Amy about 8 months before our big day, and although our venue was already secured, she gave us great recommendations on DJ's, decor, linens, and bridal beauty services. Amy helped us evaluate our proposals and negotiate the best price with our vendors. Her expertise in South Asian weddings and the ceremonies and unique rituals associated with them was essential. Amy is very organized and kept us on task with booking our vendors and making key decisions. On the day of, Amy and her staff kept everything running smoothly and as a result, the event was a huge success. People are still talking about our wedding almost 2 months later!

Usually brides get stressed out because they worry that things won't go according to their thorough planning, but having Amy there takes care of that worry, which makes your day even more special. I would highly recommend her to every South Asian bride because she not only takes over all the little stressful things, but she also gets you in touch with the best vendors according to your budget.
