The Decorators: Chapter 3 – Shruti of Far East Wedding Decor

Hi Guys!

Long time! I’m back at it, and I have here my third review in my series on…dun dun dun, The Decorators. I’ve often said that OF ALL the Pakistani/Indian/SouthAsian/Desi wedding vendors out there – the decorator was the hardest to find! (Read: there’s a gap in the market people, and if you even have an ounce of creativity/style and a whole lot of customer service, you can fill it).

First Impressions

So Shruti of Far East Wedding Decor was one of the first decorators we met. If I had to choose one word to describe the meeting it would be: underwhelming. Maybe we caught her on an off day, because I distinctly remember feeling that she showed no enthusiasm for her craft. And I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: if you are choosing to make a career in the wedding industry, you have to have good customer service. I mean, you’re dealing with people during one of the happiest times of their lives – and those people – want enthusiasm, and positive energy, and for you to smile, dammit lol! I feel like this is a really basic ask from anyone in the wedding business! And let’s not forget: it is a BUSINESS!

Style

In terms of style, hmm, how to put this eloquently: it was aiighht. Lol. I can’t say that there was anything in her book that blew me away. Her portfolio consisted of basic draping for stage backgrounds – I didn’t see anything extraordinary or creative. See for yourself – here are a couple of photos from her Facebook portfolio:

Price

With Far East Decor, the price I can say, was definitely right. She was probably the least expensive of all the decorators I met with, and that’s always a good thing!

Conclusion

In conclusion…I just wasn’t impressed. And so I decided that it was worth it to spend a little more to get the creativity, passion and enthusiasm that I wanted! #OnToTheNextOne

    Hey Salaam! Do you have an example of what your itinerary looked like? I’m writing mine too but don’t know what and how to write it

    Hi, I agree with your analysis of Far East Wedding decor. Shruti was the decorator for my wedding and ruined it by bringing spoiled, wilted flowers for the table centerpiece. She said that the flower farm apparently caught fire. But despite this supposed fire, we received no discount for the flowers, many of which had broken stalks. She took no responsibility and showed no interest. Of all the vendors we had, she was the worst, a mistake.
