TanaRi events provided my day of wedding coordinator for my wedding. I cannot imagine not having one after seeing everything they did for my wedding. I would have gone crazy without them! They made my day go flawlessly and I cannot thank them enough for it. They paid such attention to detail and made the day go flawlessly. They thought of things I wouldn't have thought of to make my day extra special!!

TanaRi events was incredible. We purchased their partial planning/day-of coordination package (I forget what exactly it was called) for our fusion Indian wedding which took place outside on an apple orchard in CA. TanaRi Events did everything they said they would do and much, much more. They were very patient with us throughout the entire planning process, always keeping us on course with the utmost politeness and attention to detail. They did an incredible amount of research on our behalf, stayed within budget, and got us the best vendors, even continuing to look more if their first suggestions didn't work out for some reason. They completely understood the "look" we were going for (although it wasn't at all traditional Indian and was much more shabby-chic outdoor hippie than Southeast Asian) and never once tried to impose their taste on anything we planned, simply taking what we said and delivering options that matched what we were looking for. On that note, while we did have a lot of non-Indian influences in our wedding, we were ultimately still married by a Punditji in a traditional(ish) Indian Ceremony, and Riri's vast knowledge of all Indian traditions/requirements/etc. was invaluable for both of us (even though my husband is Indian!). Her ability to speak Hindi was also a great help when it came not only to working with our Indian vendors, but also in talking with our families/wedding guests. Finally, and perhaps most importantly of all when it comes to wedding planning, the dynamic duo that is Riri and Meghan was completely invaluable when it came to handling/addressing our respective familial cultures and expectations, occasionally stepping in to help where needed by helping to translate expectations/confusions, but also always knowing when to stay out. In short, we couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Riri was an absolute pleasure to work with in the lead-up to our wedding. We are so grateful for all her efforts in helping to make our wedding and reception even better than we could have imagined!

She and her team went well beyond their role of coordinating the wedding on the day of. We started to work with Riri more than two months before our wedding. She walked us through each and every aspect of the wedding to make sure we considered all the necessary logistics, gave us tips, and answered endless questions we asked along the way. As my husband and I largely planned the wedding ourselves, Riri's efforts helped to relieve us from a huge amount of work and stress the last few months before the wedding. She became our go-to wedding advisor, and was more than happy to do what she could to help us in every way. Riri always put our needs first in delivering expert guidance and support. She also did a terrific job in communicating and coordinating with our vendors on key day-of logistics and decision points, so that we didn't have to.

On the day of the wedding Riri and her team, Megan and Nicole, were just as amazing. They coordinated just about every detail to a T, did a terrific job managing all of our vendors and handling difficult issues (including difficult vendors!) that came up so that my husband and I, as well as our families and friends did not find out about or have to worry about anything! They also helped my husband and I to stay calm and relaxed on the day of, which went such a long way towards letting us enjoy the day and have fun! Many of our guest described the day as “flawless” or even the “best wedding/reception” they ever attended. We could not have achieved that without Riri and her team!

In short, if you are looking for a wedding planner/coordinator who is responsive, detail-oriented and well organized, creative, professional, generous and caring, look no further and choose Riri!

I hope I have lots of room on this... because I'll need it!
We found Riri and TanaRi Events in the winter before our June 2013 wedding. We were a long distance couple in DC and Dallas, our families in Connecticut and Texas, with the wedding venue located in NY. So... already a bit all over the place to start! We needed help.

I wish I could take credit for discovering Riri and her staff, but the credit goes to my then fiancé. I consider the day he sent me the link to her website completely blessed.

Where do I start? Riri herself is an absolute joy, pleasure, and inspiration to work with. She is, at baseline, just an extremely good, honest, and empathetic person, who has a true refined talent for eliciting beauty and quality from any part of one's event. Not only that, she is realistic, mindful of price ranges and budgets, and has a fantastic network of remarkably talented contacts that all come together to make your day truly unforgettable. (Even though this review is way overdue, it allows me to share that four months later, I am STILL getting 'that was the best wedding ever!' e-mails :-) )

From helping us to construct our 5 day event (yes, an Indian wedding!), to helping us choose our invitation & programs vendors, to coordinating and facilitating our decor conversations, finding our baker, coordinating with our caterer, going above and beyond and helping with our Sangeet-- when she did not even have to-, to the day- of amazing execution, to helping to arrange the after party that has also been labeled 'best after party ever!' by others.... Riri, Jillian, and her staff continuously went above and beyond at every turn. I cannot-- absolutely cannot- imagine how any of it would have even happened without Riri.

I am just so grateful that we found her and she was able to help us translate the endless moving parts into an event that was enjoyable for everyone. Thank you SO much, Riri & Tanari-- we can't express it enough!

I worked with Meghan Day as my wedding planner from TanariEvents and I can only say that the whole experience was completely seamless. From the minute I contacted them, Meghan made herself readily available to me from beginning to end.

I did not know much about how to plan a wedding and we only had 5 months in which to do it. Meghan had contacts for everything and helped me make decisions on things I never would have thought to consider.

All I can say is that if you don't want any surprises on the big day and want someone who will be there until that last piece of cake has been eaten, go with TanariEvents and go with Meghan! She is incredibly professional, kind and helpful and will make the whole experince as stressLESS as possible.

For our wedding, Riri and her staff member, Jillian were truly God sent. Our wedding planning was on a highly accelerated schedule with just 3 months to plan from start to finish. And to add to that, we were in two cities, Chicago and New York, planning a New York City wedding. Jacob and I started our planning and few weeks into it,found ourselves overwhelmed. In came Riri and Jillian, and took off so much burden off our shoulders that we enjoyed the process.

The key qualities we would attribute to Riri & Jillian would be - Flexibility, Responsiveness, Resourcefulness and a pleasant smile on their faces for any task - big or small. In-spite of a busy schedule, Riri was available to answer any questions and Jillian was completely dedicated to helping us through every step of the way.

I was truly impressed by Jillian's enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile, considering she did not have much experience with wedding planning. While Jacob and I picked out the church and event location, Riri and Jillian were invaluable in pulling together all the details.

After all the hard work, the day-of-coordination provided by Riri and Jillian was just excellent. From managing the timeline, to providing me with energy bars, Riri was on top of everything that Jacob and I could relax and enjoy our wedding day without worrying about anything.

Jacob and I are truly thankful for the assistance provided by tanaRi team and for working with us on a limited timeline and budget to put together a fabulous and memorable event for everyone who attended our wedding.

Riri and her team at TanaRi Events are absolutely phenomenal! Riri is very friendly, genuine, organized, attentive, and full of excellent, creative ideas tailored to your personal tastes. She invests a lot of time in getting to know the bride, groom, their families, and the bridal party - and is a valuable resource to everyone involved in your wedding.

Our wedding events spanned 5 days with 450 attendees in San Francisco and Sacramento – effectively across the country for TanaRi Events to manage – and yet, Riri and her team did an outstanding job in researching multiple local vendors, mediating our interactions with each vendor and providing invaluable guidance regarding cost vs. quality decisions.

During the planning process, Riri kept us on track with her detailed checklists, timelines, and weekly follow-ups. My husband and I were both very particular about different aspects of the ceremony and reception, and Riri not only enabled us to bring our particular ideas to life but was instrumental in managing our bandwidth and stress levels leading up to the big day.

As the scope of our wedding arrangements grew, Riri had the foresight to bring on an experienced colleague in Meghan as our Day-of coordinator, who also assisted with vendor contracts, timeline planning between events, and ensuring our vendors delivered on schedule and to a high quality standard. Both Riri and Meghan were excellent at anticipating hurdles and quickly finding solutions before it got on our radar. They both were a positive source of energy and support throughout what could have been the most stressful 5 days of our lives, but they managed all the events seamlessly. A year later, our friends and family still compliment us on how well orchestrated our wedding was.

We highly recommend TanaRi Events to anyone, whether you have a very specific idea or have no clue where to begin – Riri and her team are a tremendous asset!

Riri and the team of TanaRi Events were hired to help with day-of coordination for Pratham USA's Tri-State Gala at the Plaza Hotel. Riri and her team went above and beyond day-of coordination to help secure gorgeous decor, manage our volunteers, and give their expert advice. The team was patient and professional and a delight to work with! With their guidance, the event ran smoothly and was one of our most successful fundraisers to date! Feedback we have received from guests was that this was one of the best galas the non-profit had put on. TanaRi Event's expertise and hard work proved to be a huge asset in the success of the event!

Use Riri's services for your wedding. My husband and I run a law firm. We deal with many vendors and contractors in every variety of profession. Riri is by far the most professional person we've ever dealt with--either in our business or personal lives. Riri is down to earth, never pushy, and presents the options that make sense to you for your budget and your taste. It's clear that she's not part of the wedding industry racket--she's always on your side. One of our biggest fears was getting conned by that racket. Riri is all about her clients, not about trying to please vendors. Riri is truly in the business because she loves delivering great client service. She's very flexible, and understands the need to be flexible with professionals who have busy schedules. During the height of stress, Riri was there for us. She went above and beyond to communicate with vendors who we were having trouble with.

Riri insisted on learning from the beginning who was who in each family and what role each individual would play. She took down each person's contact info, and it was great that she knew who to call for what. This is just one example of her attention to detail that took the stress off of us.

Riri is not just an Indian wedding coordinator--she understood my husband's middle-America Irish Catholic traditions, and she helped us weave together a flawless wedding that combined our traditions both aesthetically and emotionally.

During the reception, Riri and her staff actually designed the venue, putting the flowers where they were to go, and laying out the lights and table cloths. As you'll see from the pictures, it was stunningly beautiful. She transformed a modern space (Scandinavia House) into a warm pinks and oranges. Minimalism and hindu traditions perfectly married. She also set out the balcony perfectly, hanging the lights herself. She also took them down herself when the storm hit.
Riri was our best wedding decision by far. I miss her!

My husband and I were married in August 2012 and a couple months prior to our event we were going back and forth on whether we should hire a day-of wedding coordinator/planner. Finally we started doing some research into vendors and came across RiRi and tanaRi events . We are so happy we decided to move forward with RiRi and her team as they ensured a flawless execution of our wedding and reception itineraries. Everything was on time (which was one of the most important logistical aspects to us), everyone was where they needed, to be when they needed to be, and their attention to detail is remarkable-- and we could not have asked for a better team to work with. They also offer full event planning packages which we would have considered if we decided to use a planner earlier on. Highly recommend RiRi and her team!

I was initially looking for just a day-of-coordinator because I didn’t think I could afford anymore, and frankly, didn’t know any better. After meeting with Riri, we hired her for day of planning and a little bit more. We wanted to have an Indian-fusion wedding and we couldn’t have made it happen without Riri and her team. They helped with everything from the Indian caterers, whom she had dealt with many times before, to the Indian dancers we hired for a mid-dinner performance. Riri used all of her connection to offer us different options and price points on favors, henna, car service, makeup and the like. She never pressured us to use her vendors, which was important to me. The team’s organization was also key in making our big day a success. I like that she emailed me “to-do” lists for items that I took responsibility for and that she handled other items without any input from me when I didn’t have the time (or desire) to participate. She also made sure that I paid everyone on time and followed up with one vendor when they said I forgot to pay after they had cashed my check! Overall, Riri and her team were clam, organized, knowledgeable and competent.

I was initially looking for just a day-of-coordinator because I didn’t think I could afford anymore, and frankly, didn’t know any better. After meeting with Riri, we hired her for day of planning and a little bit more. We wanted to have an Indian-fusion wedding and we couldn’t have made it happen without Riri and her team. They helped with everything from the Indian caterers, whom she had dealt with many times before, to the Indian dancers we hired for a mid-dinner performance.

I just wanted take the time out to write about what a WONDERFUL job Riri and her staff did on my wedding day (6/23/12). I hired her team for her “day-of coordination services” and they went above and beyond. Starting from about 2 months prior to my wedding date, Riri and her staff met with me to discuss exactly what would be happening on my wedding day and planning out an itinerary. I was extremely swamped planning out my 600-guest wedding and Tanari Events really helped to make sure every detail was covered. As the wedding approached the staff called all my vendors to coordinate that things would be running smoothly on the day of my wedding and that there would be no unexpected surprises. In addition, the greatest help was with the wedding itinerary and planning everything to the very last detail to ensure things would run smoothly on the big day.

On the day of my wedding I was extremely nervous (obviously) and I don’t think I would have pulled off such a large wedding had Tanari Events not been there. They took care of every little detail prior to the start of my wedding (table numbers, name cards, etc etc) but most importantly coordinating with all the vendors (stage/caterer/DJ) and making sure they were being taken care of. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Tanari Events and what a big role they played on my wedding day. Aside from handling business everyone was so warm and friendly. It was like having old friends there to help you out. Things will obviously go wrong on your wedding day but Tanari Events did their very best to take care of every unexpected surprise and to make sure that I (the bride) was never aware of any of these surprises. They were also able to wrangle the ten groomsmen in my wedding party which is certainly no easy feat! I really can’t say enough about Tanari Events! Having them at my wedding was easily the best decision I made when it came to my wedding and I would recommend them to anyone planning a big day!

tanaRi was an absolute pleasure and an amazing addition to our wedding celebration.With just a five-month engagement, there were many ideas on the table and so little time to execute. Thanks to tanaRi, we were able to have the most wonderful, stylish, tailored just-for-us wedding day. From guest to guest, everyone commented on what a fantastic wedding it was. Some even saying it was one of, if not, the top weddings they have ever been to! tanaRi’s ability to think outside the box, meet challenges with grace and help with whatever needs to be done was beyond our expectations. With each detail, tanaRi made our wedding a complete reflection of who Dane and I are. Aside from it being the best day of our lives, it was also a day our guests will remember forever. Amanda & Dane

Riri of TanaRi Events was everything we could've asked for our wedding planner. We had a small wedding but it was pretty crazy with two extended families and friends all thrown together for a short weekend.

Riri was available to answer questions, bounce off ideas or just listen as unpredictable issues arose. She sat with us and patiently walked us through the questions to ask our vendors, navigate contracts, and gave tips for saving money. She coordinated the vendors, helped define the time line and handled all the tiny but important details for the big day. By the time our wedding day arrived she completely took charge with as much care and diligence as though it were her own wedding day!!

Because of her efforts, our wedding day was perfect. We had a magical, unforgettable, insanely fun day. If there were glitches in the day, only she knew of them! Since we have gotten married, I have had many brides/grooms-to-be ask my husband and I, "If you could make anything from your wedding better, what would it be?" A fair question, as they plan for their own weddings; you can imagine their surprise when we unanimously respond: "Nothing!"

The truth is, not only was our wedding incredibly beautiful, it was also one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of our lives, for our families and us. Riri's attention to detail and flawless execution turned our dream wedding into a reality. We loved every single second of it.

I recently had the pleasure of hiring tanaRi for our day-of coordination for my wedding reception on June 18th 2011. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I wanted to have someone to help me make sure everything ran smoothly on the day of our event. I was so pleasantly surprised with the amazing work that the tanaRi team did and I can honestly say that they went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations completely. On the day of, tanaRi’s team arrived perfectly on time, prepared and dressed professionally. They were on top of every last detail. Using tanaRi was an amazing experience. I honestly don't know what I would have done without them. In the future, I would definitely work with them again for any event I throw and recommend them to everyone. tanaRi’s team was fantastic!
