Where do I even begin? Mariam is INCREDIBLE!!!! I could not thank Mariam enough.
I was introduced to Mariam through a mutual friend, and I was immediately impressed by Mariam after our first call. From the moment Mariam stepped in, everything was immediately taken care of. I hired Mariam for two events (Mehndi for 325 people and Shaadi for 550 people) and we had a lot of moving parts, but Mariam took care of everything seamlessly. With 200 out of town guests, multiple catering vendors, decor, DJ, entertainment teams, and a big Pakistani family, Mariam went above and beyond. Throughout the entire planning process, Mariam was responsive and her communication skills were extremely helpful! She dealt with any obstacle with ease, and made sure to relieve any stress. Mariam even flew to Dallas a few times for walkthroughs with the vendors to make sure everything went seamlessly prior to the event days!
Behind the scenes of planning my wedding, Mariam also helped my sisters coordinate a surprise performance by Mickey Singh. This was no easy task, especially since Mariam had to work BEHIND the scenes with my sisters, my DJ/entertainment team, the team for Mickey Singh AND the hotel to make sure everything went seamlessly AND kept a surprise — this was incredible. I still can’t believe this happened…..!! I had NO idea until Mickey Singh came out on stage.. even though I was a part of every single planning process for the wedding. So, this was crazy!
On the event days, Mariam was constantly checking in on me to make sure things were okay on my end WHILE making sure everything was going smoothly downstairs in the ballroom. EVERYTHING WAS SO PUNCTUAL AND TIMELY all thanks to Mariam. Everything went according to our timeline and Mariam made sure of that! After the wedding, we received so many compliments on how organized and coordinated everything was! All thanks to Mariam :)!
In addition to being the best coordinator ever, I can truly say Mariam cared for me like a friend on my big day! 🙂 Being a bride is stressful and full of mixed emotions, and Mariam’s presence truly helped me stay calm and excited throughout all of it!
I could not recommend Mariam and Elan Weddings enough. There is nothing I would change about my wedding, all thanks to everything going seamlessly thanks to Mariam!!! I AM SOOO THANKFUL!!!! 🙂
1000000/10 recommend Mariam for your big day!!!!! 🙂
Also, in addition to taking care of everything else, Mariam made sure to catch snippets of the behind the scenes that our photo/video team didn’t catch and I am so thankful for those photos and videos! 🙂
I LOVE ELAN WEDDINGS!!!!!

Mariam went above and beyond coordinating my wedding and it definitely wouldn’t have been as seamlessly executed without her. She eased all my stress throughout the months leading up to the wedding and gave me a chance to truly take everything in and enjoy it.
As soon as she stepped into her role, she took over all communication with my vendors and created an extremely detailed timeline for both events. She hopped on weekly calls with me to check in and help with anything and everything from floor plans to my brothers’ emcee script. She even took two flights out to Dallas prior to my wedding to walk through both of my venues with my vendors, most of whom she already had great relationships with. During the actual events, she did everything from ensuring all the vendors arrived in a timely manner to making sure I was well fed.
All my friends and family said it was one of the most organized weddings they’ve been to and that’s all thanks to Mariam and her team. I could not recommend her more!

Mariam was a godsend for me. Soon after we found the venue, she quickly lined up the vendors whom she had great relationships with. She knows local vendors, but she also has contacts and relationships with vendors in Dallas and Houston. She paid close attention to all the payment deadlines that were due and kept me informed about those in a timely manner.
As far as the layout of the ballroom, she was in constant communication with the decorator and myself to make sure the layout worked for our event.
She showed up to our event at 10:30 am even though our event didn’t start until 5:30pm which was very helpful
because she spent that time coordinating the photographer with the bride and groom and their families, and the HAMU vendors’ schedule that she came up with was flawless. The execution of the event down to the minutest detail was thought of and taken care of by her. She’s energetic, polite,
thoughtful and extremely capable at what she does.
She even fixed my makeup when i broke down into tears. She’s the best, and i can’t thank her enough, and i will only use her for my future events.

There are not enough words I can say about how amazing Mariam is. She plans things 10 steps ahead and makes sure that you, as the bride, are well taken care of. She plans meetings with you and your vendors, and takes on all the communication yourself to make sure you have a very smooth day. She thinks of things that you wouldn’t even think of! Everyone from my event raved at how smooth she made it, and if any issues pops up, she takes care of it. Her and her team work very well and quick during the day of, as they are very friendly and professional. Mariam has amazing customer and vendor relations and has worked with a wide range of vendors, so you are getting a very established person! I definitely am hiring Mariam for the rest of my wedding events in the future. If you are to spend on anything for your wedding, make sure you get Mariam! It is 1000/10 worth it.

I highly recommend Mariam and her team for your big day! I am not a type A bride at all so having Mariam stay on top of my vendors, my husband, and myself was crucial. I retained her services two months before the wedding and she took care of everything so quickly! On the day of the wedding, her communication was excellent. She managed all the minor details that I may have overlooked. The best part of her services is how comfortable she made our families during this process. The fact that she was able to assist and answer my parents’ and vendors’ questions made it easier for me to enjoy this process. I truly want to thank Mariam and her team for making my dreams come true.

Mariam and her team truly went above and beyond for my Mehndi. Anytime a bride asks me for advice or about my vendors I tell them if there’s any advice or any of my vendors you want to hire of mine, hire Elan Weddings to coordinate ALL of your events. To put this in perspective I had a more experienced planner for my reception and Mariam and her team hands down made me feel more at ease during my mehndi than at my reception and overall she and her team did a better job than people that have been in the wedding industry for 10+ years. Everyone that was in the wedding party including my husband could not stop talking about how amazing Mariam did with the coordination. My vendors were very complicated as they would not take the timeline seriously, they wouldn’t have a plan for the day of or in my case my DJ’s music stopped working. Mariam really made me feel like there was absolutely nothing that went wrong with my mehndi because she really just made any problem disappear with a snap of her finger (but really it was hard work on her and her team’s end of course). On top of being an amazing coordinator Mariam also has a lot of stories from her own events and advice to share with soon to be brides that I found very very helpful and relatable. Trust me when I say you do not need to look anywhere else for a planner. You will be lucky to have Elan Weddings plan your event.

I had the great pleasure of working with Elan Weddings for my wedding reception in Dallas. As I live in London, it was very difficult for my parents to find, coordinate, and plan with vendors on the event. That’s where Mariam comes in. She took over everything from my parents and me and made our lives so much easier on the day of! She also worked with some of our vendors to get us preferential rates. She met with us in person several times and was available to speak anytime over a call as well to plan out the whole evening. On the day of the reception, she was the first one there and facilitated all the vendor setup. Mariam ensured our whole evening went off without a hitch and my family and I couldn’t be more grateful for her help and support. Thank you so much Elan Weddings, HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!!
