My wife and I got married in July 2017. We hired Twin Pearls for their help on our Friday night Garba, Saturday wedding/reception, and Sunday brunch. Initially, I was skeptical about whether we needed to hire wedding planners (which is why I’m writing this review). We both have big families who have done several big weddings on both sides. In the end, I was very happy that we did hire Twin Pearls and extremely grateful to both Teena & Meena for how hard they worked at making our wedding a success.
A few things I would highlight:
– Preparation: One of the biggest benefits of working with Twin Pearls was how meticulous and detail-oriented they were. My wife and I had already made various spreadsheets and timelines ourselves (& borrowed friends’ & family’s). But Teena & Meena, by having done so many Indian weddings, came in and forced us to think through EVERY detail ahead of time. Making the actual decisions is (usually) easy enough, but the hard part is actually knowing the complete list of dozens of tiny decisions that need to be made. By identifying those decisions ahead of time, every single detail was planned in advance, and it meant everything ran smoothly.
– Execution: We found that the thing that most separated vendors was how well they followed-through on said details. Twin Pearls themselves followed-through on all the details, and made sure they knew everything we asked of other vendors to make sure they followed through. Teena & Meena made separate spreadsheets for all our vendors, our families, and our groomsmen/bridesmaids. They did calls with all our vendors and were on top of everything. Case-in-point: we did a 3:45 baraat, 4:30 PM wedding, 6:00 PM cocktail hour, and 7:30 PM reception start, and EVERYTHING ran on time, even though our wedding venue was 15min away from our hotel & required several rounds of bussing our guests. Nothing was delayed, everything got done, and everyone had a blast. I really think that it was less because of us and mostly because of Twin Pearls.
– Enjoyment: I remember at other family weddings — all the things the bride had to be on top-of the day-of. Sending people to check on vendors, dealing with last minute changes/issues, worrying about XYZ. No one on either side of our families had to run around the day-of to take care of XYZ. My wife thought of tons of little things that needed to get done & they all got done. Teena & Meena were up early and the last ones to leave and really went the extra mile. One thing that we remember and that our guest’s mention to us is how much time we got to spend with everyone throughout the weekend — which was because we didn’t have to worry about dealing with any last-minute issues.
We’re grateful for Twin Pearls’ help and happily recommend them to other couples.
“Amazing Amazing Amazing! These ladies are the most spectacular wedding planners on the planet! I cannot begin to explain how much they have done for us. My husband and I live in California, but we had our reception in NJ where we were born and raised. Teena and Meena were readily available to answer any questions I had, and were unbelievably accommodating with the time difference. Whether you are planning a small intimate wedding or a huge shindig, trust me, and go with Twin Pearls! I couldn’t imagine our reception to have gone any better. We are blessed.
