    Worst customer service I've experienced since planning my wedding!

    Yesterday, my fiance, my wedding planner, and I had a 6:30 PM appointment for which we were on time. However, once it was our turn to sit down with the associate, she tells us that they have many appointments coming in and are behind. At the time, it was just my fiance, my planner and myself in the studio—no other clients/customers. The owner then shows up with another couple and sits down at a table nearby.

    My appointment is going smoothly at first, but as more and more clients show up for their appointment, the more agitated the owner becomes. He then comes over to the associate we are working with (she is working off of the ONLY computer in the studio), and he keeps telling her to get up. Finally, she says, "we're not done". Which we were not.

    She gets up. He sits down and says to us, "I need the computer. You have enough information. I need to help the other appointments now". Just like that. He doesn't even have the decency to see where we are with building our decor plan or try to humbly reschedule. Instead, we were met with coldness and aggression. All because he did not take the time to accurately plan out his appointments.

    My planner tells him that we are only halfway through, and we waited a month for this appointment. He did not care. He says again, "we are behind!"

    Now, if we've made an appointment, I do not understand what warranted him to practically throw us out. What I do know, though, is that professionalism, compassion and care for customers are lacking in this establishment.

    I would not recommend this company to anyone! BEWARE. Don't waste your time like we just did. Even if they changed their attitude, the overbooking and then rushed approach to their customers doesn't deserve a dime from your wallet. Just imagine what kind of service you will receive on your wedding day if this is the first impression.

    I am upset, and I am hurt, and I would hate for another unsuspecting couple to be treated this way. You've been warned.

    Great Sparkulars

    The service we booked Babylon for were the indoor fireworks (sparkulars). Emails were answered on time and there were no issues in the booking process. The Greek gentleman that set the fireworks on the day of our wedding went above and beyond for us and we cannot thank him enough! Please send him our thanks on our behalf! Everything went great!

    A nightmare!

    My husband and I booked all of our decor and floral with Babylon from chivari chairs, to linen, charger plates, dance floor vinyl, backdrop, centrepieces, ceremony decor, etc. Babylon Decor makes a lot of empty promises and will say yes to anything you ask them. At times it will feel like it's too good to be true. On our wedding day, this company turned out to be absolutely awful. Instead of arriving at the venue for 10:00 am to deliver all the floral and set up the decor they arrived just before noon. My floral arrangements were nothing like they had promised. The colours didn't even match. My bouquet which was supposed to be "freestyle" with ivory, blush and greenery, turned out to be all white roses. It was horrible. The centrepieces were not even the ones that we had selected. The two guys that were there to set up had no idea what they were doing. Myself and my maid of honour had to give them direction on everything. My linen sizes were all wrong to a point that the table legs were showing. I had paid for a ceremony backdrop and they did not deliver since they had failed to bring sandbags to hold down the poles. The chandelier that was set up by the sweetheart table was not working to a point that they had to come back at 6:00pm to fix it in front of all of our guests. I cannot mention one thing that worked out for us on our wedding day with this company. There is a reason why every time you go in for your appointment there is a long lineup of couples waiting to speak to them. Do yourself a huge favour, pay a bit more and go to another company who will not ruin your wedding day. The extra money that you end up saving is not worth it. Believe me you do not want this stress on your wedding day. After the wedding when we contacted Farah to complain about everything that had gone wrong she simply gave excuses for everything and refused to remedy anything for us and was not sorry. I will make sure I share my horrible experience with anyone I know so they don't end up going through the same thing.

    Best in the business!

    Hiring Babylon for our wedding décor and flowers was hands down the BEST decision we could have ever made for our special day. Both Farah and Rafi were beyond helpful; they were always available by telephone and email and were very accommodating. Thanks again for all your hard work and for making our wedding a memorable one for us and our guests!

    Happy Wife, Happy Life!

    If you are in the process of selecting a decor company for your special event- search no more! Babylon is force to be reckon with! My husband and I are grateful to have had many opportunities working with Rafi and his incredible team. In fact, Babylon has become a staple at all of our hosted social events; to say this team constantly exceeds our expectations is an understatement! As a very detail oriented individual, it is absolutely refreshing working with a vendor who is willing and able to execute my exact vision, time and again, no matter the circumstance!

    Just two short weeks before my bridal shower, I was forced to switch venues. Working with Babylon made the transition seamless. Rafi & his consultants met with me on numerous occasions, simply to put my mind at ease. He always made time for me in his busy schedule and this gesture spoke volumes for me. In an industry where weddings are a dime a dozen, it makes the world of a difference when a company allows
    a couple to feel like their wedding day ACTUALLY matters to them! Over the years, I have learned that Babylon has such an excellent reputation in the business and Rafi is incredibly resourceful. If a client has their heart set on something that can’t be found in their showroom, have no fear...his team will find it! His network is immeasurable and reliable when it comes to outsourcing.

    My wedding day was truly the best day of my life and one of the most beautiful events I have ever attended. I know that I am biased but Babylon pulled out all of the stops for my husband and myself. Our venue was absolutely breathtaking. We are still receiving rave reviews! We have had so much success referring family and friends to Babylon because our guests were impressed with the caliber and quality of their work!

    Even when hosting small scale events - birthday parties and reunions - I can always count on Babylon to accommodate me because they truly value my business. Whether you are on a $1,000.00 budget or $10,000.00 budget, you will be treated with the utmost respect. Babylon exudes professionalism and are so fantastic to work with! I cannot say it enough. Thank you Rafi and the Babylon team for everything that you do!

    For cost of chair rentals they were our best bet even delivering out to NOTL. However, we should have stopped there with the rental. We went in a few weeks prior to the wedding to finalize our choices. Some of those things to not show up properly on the day of. We paid extra for square beveled mirrors that were all supposed to be same size. I think we received 5/23 of the correct mirrors, the others were not. The rosetta table cloths had stains and they used 3 on one table because it wasn't big enough (even though I had sent table sizes and exact numbers of each needed). They stressed me out the morning of my wedding because the ceremony chairs were supposed to be delivered and he called to see what the address was for the delivery (which I provided in initial paperwork) and then it took a long time for them to show up! Also, we were forced to change our chivari chair choice 3 days before the wedding (even though we had confirmed everything prior). All in all it was the right price but did cause extra stress and the quality was not there.....you get what you pay for.

    Babylon Wedding Services's reply:

    Hello Holly,
    We hope you are doing well.
    We apologize for any stress that may have been caused regarding the rentals and changes.
    We would be more than happy to work with you again in the future to rebuild your trust.
