Do you really need a Planner/Co Ordinator for your Big Day?
A Planner does just that: we plan! As Planners we guide our clients through the entire process of pulling off a successful wedding, from selecting a venue right up until the final tear down. Coordinators are useful if you have already hired all the vendors and are looking for someone to execute on the wedding day. As Planners, we have cultivated relationships with our vendors and are able to offer better prices & services than you would receive on your own. Based on our experience, hiring a Planner vs coordinator will save you money since you would end up hiring the Right Vendor at the Right price without getting cheated in the process!
Subham Events was born out of a Passion to serve the Wedding community! We specialize in Indian and Indo-fusion weddings (Cross cultural weddings are gaining wide popularity these days. (The day where Asians, Americans, Europeans, Mexicans, Jewish etc., become relatives is not very far😊)
Subham events has a team who understand the culture really well. So unlike other wedding planners we get involved in every aspect of the wedding. Most of the clients come back and tell us that we were a part of their family and still maintain contact with us since they really would have felt that we have become a part of their family. With each client we work anywhere from 2 months to 10 months.
We not only get involved in their planning but also give them tons of ideas about where and how to shop, what to shop, jewelry, apparel, what kind of return favors they can give their guests for them to remember for a long time.
Food and décor are two important things people will remember in any event. So we make sure we go for tasting before we refer any new Caterer to our clients. We also give tons of suggestions to the menu to make it more special. We also closely work with our decorators and clients to make sure the best décor comes out.
So far, most of our business has been generated through word of mouth. One wedding is leading to the next!
Have the following questions in mind when you talk to a prospective Planner/Co-Ordinator
- Try to hire someone who understands your culture so that they can guide you in each and every aspect.
- Experience does matter. You don’t want to hire someone who is going to learn from your wedding, although more experience doesn’t always mean more efficiency! Quantity is not always directly proportional to Quality!
- Ask for testimonials, do reference checks. Do not get fooled by online ratings all the time
Planner vs Co-ordinator
The next question that comes – should we go for a Planner or a Co-ordinator.
Lets explain the difference. A planner is someone who will guide you through the entire process of putting all the things together starting from Venue selection process till the execution day. A Co-ordinator is someone who will assist you a few weeks before the Event date after you have decided the venue, hired all the vendors and will co-ordinate the execution process on the day. There is a MIS CONCEPTION that you will save money by hiring a Co-ordinator vs a planner. You will actually end up saving money and get better quality by hiring a planner vs a Co-ordinator. The extra money you spend for their services will be 10 times worth their services! Moreover, vendors referred by the planners always give a better price and better services as they need more referrals from the same Planner!
When is the Right time to hire a Planner!
RIGHT NOW! The moment you have your DATE ready! YES, choices of priest and venue also make a huge difference so why not hire the right planner who can guide you through the entire process. We have had many clients who have expressed that we wish we could have hired you earlier!

What Clients Say:
Amazing planners! we had subham events help with our wedding reception. It was the best decision. They are so approachable, friendly, and organized. They helped with everything from the beautiful decorations to the tasty food!! Would definitely recommend them for any event!!!!
I spoke to mrs. kavita and hired her just one month before my wedding but she was very easy to get a hold of and willing to answer all my questions. She is very consultative in her process and truly takes into account your input of how you'd like things to be, and gives you her expert advice on each detail. The timeline she put together was down to the minute so that everything flowed seamlessly. She and her team will make your wedding day perfect! Thanks Mrs. Kavita !
We worked with Subham Events on multiple days Indian wedding recently. Kavita and her team were professional, on tasks and on time despite many last minute challenges. Kavita took the extra efforts to gather all the vendor's instagram handle so we can credit all the vendor involved when we share the images and videos from the wedding. We're looking forward to opportunities to work with Subham Events again on multiple days South Asian weddings.

Dear Kavita and Shekar, We appreciated all the effort you put into executing the time lines and coordinating the vendors at Sunita’s wedding. Sunita had a vision in mind when it came to her wedding and you helped us coordinate an event that exceeded everyone’s expectations. Thank you so much for all of your hard work in making Sunita’s wedding a truly memorable event
You co-ordinated an amazing wedding that was fairly complicated considering that we had 3 events over 2 days. You maintained close contact with all the vendors and executed the time lines to perfection. You also did an excellent job in communicating the planning with the wedding party and bride and groom . On behalf of Rajan and myself I would like to Thank you for a well planned engagement, wedding and reception. Wishing you a lot of success in the future
One of the best decisions we made for our son's wedding was to use Subham. The team is very meticulous and will handle every fine detail, from the planning to execution. It was a backyard wedding for 400 guests, and they helped us turn the backyard into a full fledged wedding venue. Sekhar and Kavitha told us not to worry about anything on the day of the event and just enjoy the day like a guest and they delivered. I give them 5 stars.
