TESTIMONIALS

Just wanted to say thank you to mala and her team for an excellent job on our multiple events that they helped plan and coordinate for us. They went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We honestly don’t know what we would have done without them. We wouldn’t change a single thing and their work was beyond satisfactory. Thank you again for making our wedding events perfect not only for us but for all of our guests as well!

I couldn’t be more pleased with Mala and her team. My husband I hired Mala a few months before our wedding to run the day-of coordination. She quickly understood our visualization for the day, prompted us with questions to help us consider what we had missed, and struck a great balance of listening to what we wanted  with providing guidance to redirect us based on her wealth of experience. In the months leading up to the event, Mala worked with us on our day-of timeline and helped us when we needed last minute vendor connections (eg makeup artists, table card printers, etc). Her recommended vendors were consistently of good caliber and she was always highly responsive.  On the day of the wedding itself, Mala somehow managed to get our ceremony and reception – which started almost an hour late, after the Groom’s friends and family’s buses got stuck in unanticipated  traffic – back on track. To this date I’m not even sure I know everything that went wrong/ may have gone wrong, given how seamlessly Mala and her team oversaw the coordination. Mala interacted professionally with our vendors and took great care with our family members. I’ll be recommending Mala and team to my friends from now on!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you and your staff did during my daughters reception at Crest Hollow Country Club in December 2012.  You took all the stress away from us so we could enjoy the function. I wish you all the best.

Touch of Elegance organized a very large summer party (Summer Soirée)…at our Estate in 2013. Mala was exceptional, thorough, and very patient with us. Trying to organize a large scale party, you understand the pressure trying to make sure that every detail is addressed and the event is perfect. Mala was able to alleviate that stress for us and take it upon herself. Mala was an experienced sounding board and was available around the clock to answer our questions. Mala and her staff were innovative, creative and professional. Mala helped us make our decisions and took control of organizing and negotiating with vendors and suppliers. She ensured that the exceptional service at the best prices were delivered by the vendors. TOE was the reason that we had such a wonderful and successful event. Certainly, Mala’s hard work and experience in the industry were evident. We look forward to working with Mala and TOE for all of our future personal and corporate events.

Summer Soiree at The Amar State

It was refreshing to have someone to bounce ideas off of and to confide in when things became too overwhelming. She was great and more then willing to go above and beyond the call of Duty! If something needed to be done she was already on it! She kept us on track with appointments as well as our vendors. Most of all she listened and kept everyone happy.

I just wanted to write you and say thank you. The wedding was everything I imagined and so much more. It was so beautiful! I loved seeing how all of our planning and little details came out to one perfectly coordinated event.  I do not know how it would have been such a successful day without you 🙂  My family and I were talking and we just couldn’t have imagined the day without you, Maria and Jose. I felt so at ease all day- even when little issues came up you handled them so easily it wasn’t even a big deal. I know it helped me and my Mom feel so much more calm. I was so happy that she could relax and enjoy the day since we knew you had everything handled. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for being a part of my big day 🙂 Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you and Touch of Elegance.

Wedding at The Westbury Manor

Thank you, Mala, for coordinating my niece’s 1st birthday party, and ensuring that it was a success.    From the adorable duck and elephant centerpieces, to the beautiful “candy bar” display table, to the wonderful magician and face-painter, our guests were thoroughly delighted by all of your special touches.  In fact, many of our guests said that it was one of the best children’s parties they had ever attended!  You made sure that the event ran in a smooth and organized manner, and as a result you took the stress of being hostess off of my shoulders. Thank you for being prompt and efficient in all of our communication, and for handling all of our unique demands with utmost professionalism.  We look forward to working with you again in the future.

1st Birthday Party at Junoon in NYC

Our wedding was AWESOME and went on without a hitch—we owe it all to Mala. From the start our wedding planning seemed to be a challenge since we were restricted on time and geographical location. But it turned out to be less stressful than we had first thought. Mala met with us and outlined what we needed to do and think about etc. Things you won’t even realize you have to decide! She was truly fantastic on a professional as well as personal level. I have no idea if anything went “wrong” the day of the wedding because Mala and her assistant Erica took care of everything! She worked in union with all the other vendors and organized everyone. That’s the best part…not having to deal with any issues the day of! Now the planning part was brilliant. We basically told her what our styles were and what we wanted and she made suggestions based on that (and also after getting to know us). She has very good taste in décor and is knowledgeable in all the ins and outs of chairs, tables, types of tents…etc. We even had an issue with our initial florist and she turned around (two weeks before the wedding!) and got us a new florist who was fantastic and cheaper than our initial troublesome florist. Beautiful flowers! There were several other things that I really appreciated about Mala: her fine attention to detail, organizational skills, and I felt like I could get in touch with her basically 24/7! She always responded to emails and texts. Very punctual and even post wedding day was helpful in wrapping up some things and checking in on how we were doing. Mala was also very sensitive and accommodating to our concerns about my mother (with terminal cancer at the time). During the planning period and post—always asking about how my mother was in a very compassionate, empathetic way. It was important to me and I really appreciated it because as our Wedding Planner she simply didn’t have to do those things and could have been strictly professional but she decided to be human which I feel is reflective of her good character. I highly recommend Mala to any couple that needs some organization, advice in wedding planning and definitely, hands down for the day of! She is reliable, trustworthy, dependable and brilliant at her craft! Thank you Mala!

Mala, You are a true professional. Our wedding was perfect and that was all because of you and your team. I’m so happy that we had you there all day to handle that crazy operation. I work in television and yesterday was a huge production and we couldn’t have done it without you. I’m so happy that we had the picture perfect wedding and we got married outside :)Thanks so much!

Corissa Mavroides

Mala and her team did a fantastic job making sure everything went smoothly during the day of our wedding. They had some challenges to deal with but dealt with them as seamlessly as they could and most importantly made sure my husband and I were stress free! They took good care of us. They were on time and followed through on all details throughout the day. It takes a lot to please me given my detail oriented nature but I was definitely pleased! I highly recommend Touch of Elegance Events for wedding coordination services!

I just don’t have words to thank you and your entire team. You not only made me feel special but you could sense the warmth of Love all around Akbar in all of them. You were absolutely detailed in each every thing that you planned and your staff made me really feel like a King. I really was in awe when I entered Akbar, the setup was much more than anybody could ever expect. I truly and truly appreciate all your hard work and all the tiny details.

Dearest Mala,
We had an awesome wedding. We got compliments from every guest who attended. So many guests even commented this was the best wedding they had ever been to. In my wildest dreams, I did not envision such a wedding. It was flawless.You and your team did an amazing job. Very well executed and all timelines were thorough. Mona and I can’t thank you enough for putting together all the pieces of this very complicated puzzle and bringing to us such a lovely wedding. You get a huge thumbs up from us.

Snehal Kothari

Words can’t express how much we appreciated your hard work and that of Maria and Jose. It was such a pleasure working with you all. You handled every issue that came up with poise and grace and made it all appear seamless. I know it was the wedding of Kate’s dreams. I will forever sing your praises, and if I can do anything to broadcast it to the world, I would be happy to do so.

Cocktail Party at Vitae

My little girl was turning 16, as excited as she was for her Sweet Sixteen, I was already in a panic mode as her big day was only 4 months away and I hadn’t even booked the venue, on top of that I was to be out of state and not returning till the week of her birthday. So how does a dad fulfill his promise to his daughter for a Fantastic Party, He contacts Mala! Mala was a Genie to the rescue, not only did she handle all intricacies (I didn’t know tablecloths made a difference) but she ensured to calm my nerves every time panic set in. Since I was out of state I had a lot of questions and concerns. Venue, Food, Favors, Entertainment, ‎Light show, Candy station, Cotton candy station, Photo booth, Limo…She had it all down to science and the event went with flawless execution… It was a dream come true for my daughter. The party is still talked about amongst the guests, I’m a Rock star Dad now courtesy of Touch of Elegance, and I could not have asked for a better planner than Mala.

Ricky Bahl

Sweet 16 Party at Mint

I was very impressed with how the tournament was run and the event itself.  I’ve had folks talk to me today again about how impressive it was.  I’ve been to various golf tournaments (charities, corporate outings, etc.) and most have been put on for years.  For this to be the first one for the Huq Foundation, I thought it was a smashing success and exceptionally run.  Kudos to you.

Mala thank you so much for making my dreams come true. Everything was so beautiful people still can’t believe how gorgeous the wedding was! Thank you love lots.

Consuelo and Mitch Brumberg

Wedding at The Sands Lido Beach

Mala is a very qualified event planner. I want to start off by saying she was the event planner for all my pre-wedding and wedding parties . She is unbelievably responsive, and super organized. Mala proved to be an excellent liaison with vendors, which made coordinating appointments and keeping track of event finances a lot easier. We couldn’t recommend her more highly

Damian Dutt

Wedding at Hyatt Hauppauge

Touch of Elegance coordinated our Sangeet and wedding on August 28/29. We worked with Mala and her team of Jose and Kate. They went above and beyond what we expected. First, before the wedding even occurred they assisted with planning and adding a candy buffet to the event, which wasn’t something I thought they’d do. On the day of the events, Mala and her team were ever present and introduced themselves to all the key members of the wedding parties. They handled nearly everything and made the event as stress free as it could possibly be. I would highly recommend this team because they are professional, extremely helpful, and will go above and beyond to help your event succeed! Thank you!

Mala and her team did an amazing job! We could not have gotten through the weekend without them. I highly recommend touch of elegance to anyone planning a wedding! They will go above and beyond for you!

Wedding at The Garden City Hotel

It was one of the most important days of our lives, and it was also arguably one of the best! Mala and her team were on top of every little detail – she handled both the planned and unplanned items with prompt and efficient responses. We received so many compliments for our venue, food, music and entertainment; however, the best compliments of all are those I still receive of how FLAWLESS and FUN the wedding reception was — all undoubtedly thanks to Touch of Elegance. If you want to create the day of your dreams without having to stress over every detail (especially if you’re having a multi day Indian wedding), I guarantee you can trust Mala and team!

We got great feedback from our guests. This was one of the best parties they ever attended. Thank you for organizing this mega event for us.

Thank you so much for your attention and support. Jiya loved her party. The girls did a fab job…the chandeliers , dancing as jesters, and the tablecloths pulled the look together. It all looked great and we enjoyed it…

Mala was the party planner for my 50th birthday celebration. She organized the perfect location, decorations and entertainment for the occasion, and made it an evening that everyone who attended will remember. I look forward to engaging Touch of Elegance for any events that we plan in future.

Hi Mala, Kafele and I just wanted to say thanks for planning and coordinating our wedding!! Thank you for being so easy to work with, being just a phone call or email away at every hour of the day. You planned the wedding of our dreams and people can’t stop talking about how amazing it was and well organized. You made the day go so smoothly and made sure everything was perfect. Your assistants Kate and Jose also made sure that my husband and I enjoyed ourselves and had everything we needed and asked for on our wedding day. We love Touch of Elegance. THANK YOU!!

Wedding at Soundview Caterers

Not saying names, but one of us was hesitant about the need of wedding coordination services the day of, nonetheless the month of. Well before the month of the Sangeet and Wedding, there were no more questions about what kind of value Mala and her team were bringing. Although we used Mala for coordination of our Mehendi, Sangeet, and Wedding Ceremony and Reception, Mala was eager to offer support and advice on all aspects of our wedding week. The insight and experience and the professionalism and respect were crucial to making our week perfect. She and her team answered questions before we asked them, mitigated any risks or issues before they popped up, and dealt with many weather-contingent decisions without unnecessarily pulling us away from enjoying our weekend. In the end, they preserved our vision…and sanity! Our families who similarly didn’t necessarily realize what Mala and her team were doing to make sure our events were executed perfectly, and on time, could not stop raving about how critical they were to making the week and weekend perfect.
