Aanchal has been my support system throughout the wedding planning! For a bride like me who is not in the country, working full-time and has no idea how to go about this – she’s a perfect fit! She was able to chalk out a rough plan in our first conversation itself and followed through on each step. I needed help with outfits, makeup artists and photographers – which was a lot to handle given the myriad options available!
Based on my taste – which she caught on to pretty quickly, Aanchal prepared lifesaver shortlists for MUAs, photographers and outfit stores.
For MUAs and photographers, she reached out to each one of them, negotiated quotes based on my budget and got me great deals with the right people. This whole process saved me a lot of time (and stress) and at the same time, she ensured my continued involvement in all decisions.
For outfits, she actually took me to each store in 3 days! I picked up exactly what I needed and at the risk of sounding melodramatic, I couldn’t have done it without her!!
Couple of great things about Aanchal – she knows the wedding market really really well, she’s straightforward, understands budget constraints, takes initiative and actively ensures that all goals are achieved in a timely manner. In addition, Aanchal is truly the kind of energy you need around you! She’s passionate about her work, honest in her opinions, absolutely friendly with you (and your family!), professional in her approach, values your time and she’s committed to making you feel comfortable.
It’s been a great experience and I think wedding planning with Aanchal made all the difference. I’d recommend her to all prospective brides and their families 🙂 cheers!

Aanchal is a perfect bridesmaid. I came to Delhi from Hyderabad to pick up Mehendi and Sangeet outfits and to shop for my trousseau suits. Aanchal was patient and understanding and made such an arduous process seem much simpler. She was there at every step and handled all my bridal tantrums with a smile. Her knowledge about the stores and designers is amazing, and she managed to connect the dots with what I wanted and helped me get exactly what I wanted.

Aanchal helped me with my wedding planning in February 2018. It was extremely easy working with her. She was full of ideas and her enthusiasm was infectious. I would highly recommend her. She’s great with the execution of ideas and managed to take the stress out of wedding planning!

Mine was an arranged marriage with just a month between the roka and the wedding ceremony. Every bride-to-be goes through a roller coaster of emotions and I had to deal with all those plus finalise my venue, photographers, choreographer, decorator, caterers, outfits, make-up artist… all in one month! I was panicking and I didn’t know what to do or where to start.
A friend introduced me to Aanchal. Initially, I was apprehensive about roping in a planner. But just one meeting with Aanchal was enough to reassure me. Not only did she come with a clear plan on how to proceed in the next one month but also a lot of positivity to put a nervous bride at ease.
Over the next one month, Aanchal amazed me several times with her passion for weddings. She personally got involved with all the aspects of my wedding, helping not just me but my parents too, with decisions around the venue, decor, photographers, invites, accommodation and gifts for our guests. She kept up with all my tantrums regarding the dress, make-up, hairstyle, even photo poses. And in the end, I was better off following her advice. She gave me the elegant, classy wedding that I always wanted.
The USP of The Millennial Bridesmaid is that she creates warm, personalized weddings. Aanchal patiently sat through all the discussions with various vendors. She comes with rich industry experience and has a perfect team of vendors working for her. Personally, I feel she is a one-woman army who eats, breathes and lives weddings. Her passion is contagious and she single-handedly made my wedding day. Getting her onboard was the best decision I took. I can’t thank her enough!

I’d managed most aspects about my wedding despite the long distance but the one department I was clueless about was the clothes. I knew I didn’t want to splurge too much here but I still wanted something classy and unique. I reached out to her for her stylist package and she helped me with the main wedding lehenga, and my mehendi and sangeet outfits. She guided me and my mom in the maze that is Chandni Chowk and made the day enjoyable with her tour. We explored a few stores but finalised our lehenga at Asiana Couture where she had already made an appointment and where the owners knew her well too. Her presence helped during the delivery process too and we got the lehenga on the date we were promised.
