They helped me with selection of the venue, caterer, DJ, decorator, makeup, dhol and henna. I had a photographer and videographer in mind and they didn't push me to go to with their recommendations like other planners do. They kept my budget in mind and helped to negotiate.

Honestly, I wish we met them sooner so that they could have helped us plan our wedding from day one.
We worked with Rimla and Sajjad as Day-Of Coordinators and they began their diligence 3 months in advance of our big day (typical day-of coordinators begin one month in advance). They met with us (and our families) on several occasions at the venue to walk through each portion of the event to make sure the itinerary flowed appropriately. They developed an individualized minute-by-minute timeline for themselves, our relatives and each of the vendors. They were both incredibly responsive to all methods of communication regardless of the day or time and they worked very well with all of our vendors.
