  • We planned a multi day, multi event wedding and Shobha and her team went above and beyond to make it absolutely beautiful! From our first meeting with her, she was very calming, with great ideas and a desire to help us reach our personal aesthetic. She is so flexible and knows many of the Boston venues well- her experience shows and we could not be more happy! Thank you to her and her team!

  • Shobha Auntie is a master! From the first consultation my mother and I had with her we felt comfortable and safe - suddenly this whole wedding planning process felt doable. She is creative, practical, and has an eye for simple, elegant, beauty. She worked with us to bring me the exact decor that we wanted. The statues and details she added were perfect. The mandap was beautiful and fit perfectly with our venue and mixed crowd. We are so grateful to her.

  • Shobha was amazing for someone who has multiple set ups she is awesome to work with. When asked for an opinion she tells you the truth there is no sugar coating which is what you want when you are dealing with someone. People don't understand that in this line of work you have to work with hotels sometimes you can only go to setup when the hotel says it's okay. She has been in business for over 25 years. She has great opinions and decorations... if you want to feel like royalty on your day go with Alankar.

  • Shobha was very flexible and I got exactly what I wanted. Her decorations are modern, elegant and to die for. Everyone loved our decorations and It is the talk of the town. Shobha was flexible - I was only able to meet late at night due to my schedule, she was able to work with my schedule to meet me around 9 or 10. Thank you Shobha for going above and beyond.

  • Shobha was phenomenal to work with. I had a vision for my lebanese wedding, to incorporate decor and design (Indian Inspired) but keep a modern twist on it. Shobha saw my vision, and went above and beyond to meet and exceed my expectations. All my guests were blown away when the saw the stage, backdrop and centerpieces. Thank you Shobha for helping make our Fairy Tale wedding a reality! xoxox Dina & Jad

  • Shobha Aunty – thank you so much for making our dream wedding a reality!!! If anyone wants the ABSOLUTE best in the business, Shobha Aunty is your person! I’m sure there are many brides out there that have started planning their weddings since childhood. But Shobha aunty – you made it a reality and even better than imagined! From our very first meeting, you had great ideas and recommendations that made our wedding exceptional. All your decorations were new and innovative. We even challenged you to create a whole new reception set. The end result – absolutely stunning! Everyone was extremely amazed at how beautiful and elegant the decorations were for all three events. We are still getting compliments about all your work. There is no doubt that you are #1 Decorator in Boston, but from our experience we think you are #1 in the whole Northeast. We are very glad that you were part of our big day. We would highly recommend you to all our friends and family! Thank you for all your ha... Read more

  • The decor we decided on was put up on time and with some nice touches that we didnt expect. Shobha and her team did a great job transitioning from the wedding setup into the reception setup.

  • Shobha aunty has been in the business for over 25 years, serving the entire Indian community. When you meet her, you understand why she has been around for so long: she knows how to connect with people, she's tough, and she has an extensive network that helps you get what you need. I and my family are super into DIY, but with Indian weddings, and multiple outdoor and indoor venues, it became clear to us that we needed to call in a professional. Compared to all the other vendors, Shobha aunty had the most diverse inventory, completely understood our vision, could accommodate our needs, and worked so well to make it happen. We didn't trust anyone else the way we trusted her and felt at ease with her. Initially she was difficult to reach, but once our wedding date started to come up, she was very prompt, attentive, and was very clear about what she could get done for us. We knew we were in great hands. Just to give an example of what I'm talking about, we had initially thought that we'... Read more

  • The mandap fell halfway through the ceremony. 4 large stone pillars, and shattered glass everywhere. Any one of the wedding party could have been seriously injured, and if that had happened, the rest of the ceremony and the reception would have been canceled. Thankfully, nobody got hurt, and we were able to remove everything, suck in our emotions, and carry on (without a mandap). Shobha never apologized to the bride/groom, did not offer any sort of refund, and claimed it wasn't her fault it was the wind's fault. Well your structure should be strong enough to withstand a little wind, and the video clearly shows the flimsy side extension collapsing first, and then bringing down the main pillars. She said she was going to retire soon after our wedding. Hopefully that's the case.

  • We decided not to move forward with Alankar because we weren't able to get a contract and even a written response from Shobha for weeks when asking for a quote for our wedding weekend. When we went to go meet with her, we viewed some of the pictures she had done for other weddings and so it definitely seemed like she and her team were capable of the work. However, we couldn't get a solid price point to work off of and it made me nervous that I was trying to budget in decor and not able to understand how much her work would come up to. I followed up over email a few times for a quote and about different elements that we would like to see. Sometimes I would get a response saying something along the lines of we'll get back to you or we can definitely do that. But I never was able to get a definitive answer and/or a solid contract. Not something I wanted to deal with over the course of wedding planning.

    responded with the following comments.

    miss. dasgupta we met briefly in my office. you showed us a design you were looking to settle on. we had told you that we are in the process of getting egis manufactured in india and we cannot give you the price until we have a quote from the vendor. you did not have the patience to wait for few weeks to get this. we do not quote until we know the price. while meeting us you had mentioned that your budget on mandap was 4500......with such info we did not feel throwing a number at you without the quote.

  • My daughter got married in July, and we were very excited initially about working with Shobha. However, several things happened that left us frustrated with our experience working with her on the wedding. 1. Her communication was poor. She was very slow to respond including on the day of the wedding, always keeping us on the edge. 2. She did not give us a written contract, despite persistent requests and promises she would do it, until a few days before the wedding. This was incredibly frustrating. 3. The price she verbally quoted was far less than what appeared on the contract. 4. Her people showed up to put decorations up for the wedding just a couple of hours beforehand, which was nervewracking for the coordinator and people at the venue. She did not connect with them at all, and would not answer her phone. And the mandap was not constructed the way that was shown in the pictures. 5. She said terrible things about the other vendors we hired and made us very nervous about th... Read more

  • Nothing was done in writing, no contract but the output was more than we asked for. When you work with Shobha, just tell her your wishes and leave the rest to her.
