Planning a destination wedding is not easy and even more so if you live 8000 miles away but Komal and her team made this whole experience as stress-free and dreamy as possible for us which is why we can't recommend them highly enough. We came across Diakon events on the WedMeGood website just 6-7 months before our wedding day and the main reason we did not hesitate to shortlist them immediately was because of KomalÃ¢ÂÂs positive, transparent and confident demeanor. Unlike many other planners we spoke with at that time, we were able to get very straight answers from her regarding the itemized costing of decor elements, additional license fees, decor details etc. Despite the different time zones we were at, the whole planning actually was a breeze because she and her team were always willing to accommodate our calls, send constant updates on our group chats and patiently answer any questions we had however trivial they were. Sending us itemized detailed costing, PowerPoint presentation with the decor elements and mood boards just made it even easier for us to keep track, visualize and make any modifications until the actual wedding day. We had a 2-day wedding celebration in Goa with 3 different events back to back and they were all executed just perfectly by Diakon. Komal and her team were always around, working day and night to set everything up and making sure everything went according to the plan and it required the least amount of supervision from us, leaving us to entertain the guests and enjoy the celebrations. She was so easy to work with, extremely flexible and even added some surprise elements of her own that made the decor look even more stunning. KomalÃ¢ÂÂs hard work and attention to detail to bring all elements together just beautifully is especially commendable and impressive. All of our guests were totally enchanted by the decor that we were getting compliments over and over again and for days that followed the wedding they honestly could not stop talking about it. The best part was that we were so stress-free throughout and can't thank them enough for taking care of everything end to end. If you are looking for planners in Goa, look no further these guys are totally amazing!

DIAKON EVENTS was excellent. komal was there whenever we needed her and her staff was great. The services she offered are worth the money. My wedding was fantastic. so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with diakon Events. her team were extremely professional and provided quality customer service. They went above and beyond the call of duty. her staff put together a portfolio of lovely flowers, décor, drapes, etc. , and we knew we were in good hands. We received wonderful feedback from family and friends on how lovely, professional and creative the decorations were . Most importantly, Diakon Events made us feel apart of their family, and made sure we were taken care of. We have already recommended Diakon Events to our friends! ❤ Big thank you komal and her team to turning our dream wedding into reality

I am the bride and DO NOT USE this vendor if you want to have a successful wedding They are so unprofessional - Komals father comes right in the middle of the event screaming and demanding money when they should have collected the money the day before (and they DID NOT) not right in the middle of service - very inconsiderate. The Diakon team themselves were scared and could not calm him down.it seems like he has some personal issues and takes it out on events like this. It is so embarrassing. Komal should keep personal drama at home and bring it to events. Komal has not apologised once to me - either phone, email or WhatsApp. They are complete liars as well - on the response below they came back saying I begged them to take the event 2 days before. No bride would do that! They had the bank transfer done way before that. Maybe that they are so unprofessional that Diakon does not have a good handle on their own bank accounts. Also they are talking about calling the bank in front of us - will be good to know which bank branch they called as proof - again will prove that they are complete liars. They have not delivered half the things and just priced the items up - when asked for refund they come back with items we did not ask for which they provided out of free will and also we were NOT AWARE OF.. As they do not want to refund us they are defaming every review written by my family and friends From one bride to another reading this - you want everything to go smooth on your big day - save your self the trouble and Komals family drama and DO NOT USE them It will be pointless reading the response below as it will be yet another lie from the company.

I approached Komal and her team for planning our wedding in December 2018 at Bay15, Goa. We were impressed by her initial presentation and reviews. Even though we asked her to decorate our venue, she proactively helped us with other really good vendors for other requirements. Now, with regards to the decor, Diakon Events took a good venue like Bay15 and transformed it to a totally different new level. The entire dance floor was covered with a truss with beautiful flower chandeliers. The pictures I've attached tell you only half of the story. You would need to be there in person to experience it. Our guests were enthralled with the decor, and we received compliments on the decor for weeks after our wedding. What's the best part about everything was that working with Komal did not require extensive planning and effort. We met her both just once, after which she handled everything online, and helped us with the iterations. Also, we did trust her a fair bit, to take a call on certain aspects, based on her experience. We are glad to report, she did not let us down, at all. To top it all, she did this in a reasonable price, truly within our budget. Overall, a truly fairytale setup, brought to life by Diakon Events. Thank you, Komal, Denzil & team for a truly fantastic experience of working with you guys. Lots of love, Romeena & Nilesh

I loved working with Komal on the decor of my wedding reception, even though it was from across the globe. After sharing a few pictures with her on what my vision was for the rustic-chic wedding I was planning in Goa, she quickly got on the same page and delivered exactly the same (in fact much better). "Fairy tale wedding", "the decor is so you", "super romantic decor", "I want my wedding to look like this" were just some of the few compliments that we received from our wedding guests. The lights, flowers, backdrop, props all came together in perfect harmony and I am very glad I chose Komal. She also portrayed what the decor elements are gonna be before hand in a powerpoint presentation and gave an exhaustive breakdown of the expenses. We were able to iterate a few times on the changes that I requested using these documents and Komal worked with us at each point to make sure we got what we want. Komal and her team in general are very easy to work with, responsive, great at what they do, and keep you in the loop at each step to get your feedback.

Komal led and managed all aspects of this wedding, from day-1 ideation to every little detail of final execution. Her capacity for calmness, flexibility, design aesthetic, attention-to-detail and positive client-relationship management was remarkable. Being a wedding planner is far from easy, and working with Komal helped me appreciate the monumental effort it takes to keep track of every evolving want vs. need. The fact that she was able to put on a stunningly beautiful wedding, EXACTLY as I had dreamed of it, and execute with perfection despite a 75% chance of rain (on all days of the wedding), while managing a client (ok, ok, bridezilla) who was sitting in another country, with an 11 hour time difference, unable to chat through ideas on the phone, or even meet in person (#facetime), or handle the minutia of payments or quotes in INR, deserves a HUGE round of applause. As soon as we were landed on the ground in Goa she re-worked several of the events to accommodate a potential monsoon wedding, and her local connections made her an incredible resource to go to for sourcing EVERY last detail. She was amazingly optimistic and upbeat and her presence was SO reassuring it made a huge difference. And beyond her happy smile through all the last minute changes, she even went the extra mile in small but important ways (you can see her and her teammates holding up umbrellas over us, to keep us dry during the hour or so that it did rain). To Komal and her dream team - thank you SO very much for your hard work, determination, vigor and amazing speed with which you pulled off our wedding in Goa. There are 100+ people scattered around the globe that are still can't stop talking about the incredible and memorable experience you helped create for them - i would recommend Diakon events to anyone thinking about any kind of event in Goa. And for anyone thinking of "doing it all yourself" - please don't lol - leave it to the experts - you will be so grateful you did. Cheers, Gaya

Never knew the dream of having a Destination Wedding could come true at an affordable price and Diakon events made our dreams come true. We are from Hyderabad n this team did EXCELLENT job in hunting us a venue by the beach in Goa with a spectacular view and delicious food service. Decor detailing was plannd over emails n customized n reworked patiently with several changes until we were satisfied. They brought the classy fairytale wedding to life exactly as planned n paid attention to flower colors, seating, creating welcome tiaras, couple picture storyboard, cabanas for dinner n dance floor etc. Komal's passion for her work shows as she is available almost 18 hours a day n remembers little details. It was raining n they made sure to protect all the decor until the rain stopped. Special shoutout to Pranoy for arranging us a car as we arrived (not their job), THEY TRULY CARE !!! Komal made me feel special with a surprise BRIDE TO BE sasch n bracelets. BEST DECISION ever to have them????

Our initial discussions with Komal and her team were not very prompt which made planning a wedding from overseas quite stressful. Having said that, everything came together wonderfully and I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding. The decor was beautiful and Komal was more than willing to assist us in our various requests and coordinated everything beautifully. Thank you to Komal and her team for making our dream wedding come true :)

Komal and her team were simply amazing in every conceivable way! Firstly, she was just so forthcoming and friendly, receptive and ever smiling it was always such a pleasant, cheerful time during meetings and interactions. We really cherished her spirit of adaptiveness and delivery! She never once said we had not discussed any arrangement that might have been asked of her, and took charge to make sure the ambiance was preserved in-spite of the rain! There was ample evidence of her team?s generosity of spirit and their willingness to please! The floral decorations were so elegant,the lighting so delightful and her behind the scenes coordination so discreet we couldn?t have imagined it would turn out so perfect! Well done Komal! Excellent, excellent value for money outlaid! You well deserve to go from strength to strength!

Team Diakon events was a dream team to work with. I think one of my best decisions was to hire them to handle my wedding. Extremely professional, transparent, patient and perfectionists. My budget was always limited, something I had informed them as soon as we started discussing on the wedding details. They delivered the best in my budget and added some elements here and there on their own to add on to the decor and other preparations. Everything was delivered just as discussed. I was so calm at my wedding, and mainly because i had nothing to worry about, everything was taken up by this team and everything was on time. I worked with Komal, Denzil and Prannoy, and these guys went out of their way to deliver additional requests. All in all, i think i couldn't have asked for a better team and they had a HUGE role to play in making my wedding a perfect dream wedding. Again- hiring them was one of my best decisions.Source

Would like to laud Komal and Denzil for pulling off exactly what they showed in pictures at our wedding venue.A beach set up wedding with the rice grain lights and little details we personalized in almost everything. We completely went with their recommendations of Dj Deep and the Emcee Sandra whom we didn't find reviews online but they were beyond fabulous. On time and in tune with the crowds. The floral setup of our backdrop, light infused stage, flower petals, lit up food tents decor all in all ticked off correctly. We got back all the stuff I'm tact that had to be returned like champagne flutes, guest messages, wedding toppers. They are a busy team and I was apprehensive of the outcome but they delivered.Was slightly let down by a few deeds, which they can work on but all in all when I look back the guests were happy and comfortable and that made me happy.

We approached them for our wedding planning. Had to chase them to get even initial response and quotes. After 100s of questions, sharing their filled checklist and multiple call discussions, they delivered a half-baked quote! In the end, decided to not pursue them further because of their lack of professionalism, delay in quote delivery and incomplete work in just a simple quote!

Komal is the best thing that could ever happen to our wedding. She worked day and night to ensure everything went even better than planned. I don't know how she does it but she's available 24*7 and understands exactly what you want. She made our wedding a fairytale wedding. The best part is we ended up finding an amazing friend in her in the process. Thank you so much for making our wedding so close to your heart and taking care of every minute detail to perfection. I don't think we could have made a better choice. Would choose her a hundred times if we could!! Please book her without thinking even twice and you will never regret it! That's our assurance.

At first I was a bit skeptical as Komal is generally very busy with work and would not give me much time for discussions, only later I realized how extremely professional this girl is. The best thing about working with her is that she understands exactly what you want for the most important day of your life. What an amazing energy this girl has- all arrangements were done well before schedule and even the last minute requests were accommodated and executed perfectly. My husband & I had planned a filmy Goa beach wedding for us and Team Diakon helped us making it possible by all means. Everything from ideas, accepting suggestions, accommodating last minute requests, quality of products used, colour combinations, execution was just perfect! Both of us are very thankful to you and your team for making it a dreamy wedding!
