The BEST in the industry!!!
Sneh is absolutely amazing! My husband and I live in California, but our wedding was in Hoboken, NJ. I had already booked a few things by the time I was ready to look for a wedding planner, so I wanted to find someone I could get along with, trust, was local to the wedding site, and also wouldn't try to push me to spend more than I wanted to. I called about 15+ wedding planners and then instantly connected with Sneh. She understood my vision, got my style, instantly built rapport, and I told her during that phone call she was hired. I'm so glad I did! She's become a friend throughout the process. She's detail oriented, quick to find solutions, and takes ownership in everything she does. She's timely in her responses- both texts and calls. My family and friends were impressed with her during our wedding. Our decorator was difficult to work with and wasn't doing what was in the contract. Sneh was quick to try to handle everything she could herself and didn't involve us until needed. I knew she had our back every step of the way. I can't express our extreme gratitude for all her work in helping us with our wedding.Sent on 12/04/2019

One of the best decisions we made for our wedding!!
Sneh Diwan (Diwan by Design) was great to work with from beginning to end. Her professionalism and experience were only surpassed by her warm personality and rapport.Sent on 11/07/2019
She was open to our ideas but also great at making suggestions. She was organized, timely, and responsive both via text and email. As a planner, she was great at communicating with the different vendors and her attention to detail made all the difference for our wedding weekend.
Even during stressful encounters, she kept her calm and didn't let negative interactions affect her quality of work. We had a large wedding with ~500 guests and multiple events at 2 different locations, but Sneh was able to seamlessly manage all of it.
I would highly recommend Diwan by Design as a wedding planner.

Customer-centered full planning services with the stylish Diwan by Design!
We’re excited to have found Diwan by Design to plan our Fall 2019 Indian wedding in Philly! Sneh Diwan was organized, transparent, down-to-earth, and executed our vision for a simple, classic, chic, romantic wedding perfectly (being very cognizant of our budget every step of the way).Sent on 11/27/2019
My fiancé and I contracted with Sneh for full-service planning (supporting us with the following major buckets of work: vendor research & contracting, vendor comms and coordination, day of coordination, wedding styling, and most importantly – sanity and gut checks) for our Sangeet, Wedding, and Reception. Of the 20 or so planning companies we interviewed, Diwan by Design came out on top for the following reasons:
•High quality customer service – she was professional, respect
•Responsiveness – she responded to questions/concerns from us and vendors in a timely manor and was accessible via email, phone, text, and gchat!
•Affordability – by far the best bang for our buck compared to other Indian wedding planners
•Transparency – she was honest about cost/feasibility when it came to all aspects of wedding planning and vendor selection
•Organization – she has a multitude of tools/resources to use to stay organized.
•Eye for design – with a background in fashion, she was a great resource for various aspects of styling (from décor, to bridal wear, to bridal party colors).
•Consistent friendly demeanor and positive attitude
We hired Sneh 11 months in advance of our wedding and it was the perfect amount of time to start the wedding planning process from scratch (we didn’t even have a venue). Sneh kept us on track with her month-by-month calendar/timeline which mapped out what we needed to accomplish in a given month prior to the wedding.
If I could, I would share all of the awesome things Sneh did for us but here are a couple of highlights:
•Sneh was instrumental in helping us prioritize where our money would be well spent. She even helped us a create a “reality check” budget which we were able to stick to through the wedding.
•Sneh was great resource as we planned our Philly wedding from Boston. She met with several vendors/venues on our behalf so we didn’t have to make additional trips to Philly.
•Sneh single handedly obtained a permit and coordinated with the Philadelphia police department to shut down a major street in Philadelphia for our Baarat. This could have been a major headache for us but Sneh took care of it seamlessly!
•We ran into an unfortunate situation on the day of the ceremony when our 22 fresh marigold garlands were not delivered. Luckily, we had a few extra feet of marigolds (used for decoration) which Sneh and her team tied into garlands on the day of the ceremony!
Overall, we had a wonderful experience working with Sneh and team. Additionally, each of our vendors communicated their respect for Sneh’s working style and dedication to flawless execution.
We’d highly recommend Design by Diwan for your wedding planning needs without hesitation. Please feel free to reach out to me with any additional questions about our wedding planning experience with Sneh.
