When I saw the venue for the first time, I knew I need to work with the brains behind the setup. It was beautiful. She told me to keep it simple and the let the venue work for you. I am so glad I did that. I don't think anyone noticed how simply it was. I fell in love with the chiavari chairs. They just made everything come together. I noticed after dinner not many people were sitting in them, but I didn't care. I also rented the gold tree. Originally, I wanted a tree on every table. I brought it down to one tree. My photographer took a picture of my rings on the tree - it just melts my heart. I can't think this crew for making my day look amazing.

We loved Michelle and her team. She worked very well and listened to what we wanted. Wide selection of colors and centerpieces to chose from. Very accommodating and understands as expenses build up she set up payment plans which help ease our planning. Very professional and would definitely recommend her to everyone for any occasion.

I had a hard time because the wedding was planned in a short period of time but I think if you plan months in advance, you may have better experience than I did. Furthermore, when I was at the banquet hall, the gal helped me add my pieces to the decor without any complaints, that was wonderful! Taking those extra minutes and working with me was greatly appreciated.

Michelle does great work. A bride who was having her wedding after mine actually loved how she decorated so much that she asked if we could leave Michelle's decorations up for her wedding. The only complaint I had was I didn't feel as though I was a priority to her. She would say it was because her business was so busy which I believe. However I felt that since I was let of her business that I should know what my venue would look like. It ended up looking absolutely beautiful but I have a bad taste in my mouth just because of her responsiveness to me.

Michelle was absolutely wonderful. We contacted her at the last minute for a backdrop for my daughter's ceremony and she was more than accommodating. She created a backdrop for the ceremony that was exactly what we more beautiful than we had hoped for. Michelle is easy to work with and has such a creative touch.

Michelle is absolutely amazing and talented!!! We were over the moon and excited on how beautiful she made our ceremony and venue look! I was so amazed on how she brought a vision to life, transformed a space and then some. She is very kind, thoughtful, hardworking, and professional. I also think she was a great price! One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was choosing her! Non stop compliments on the décor all night.
If you are a stressed out bride or happen to be working from out of state, like I was, put your trust in Michelle to make your day perfect.

Michele at Gala Inc was by the far the best person I found to make my wedding vision come true. She provided my centerpeices, which were beautiful gold candelabras, she did a backdrop and draping in the space, and also provided beautiful chivari chairs. She went out of her way to find the certain candelabras I wanted to match my blush and gold theme. Also her prices were the best out of any decor vendor in buffalo. I would definitely recommend Gala Inc for wedding decor. She is super nice, and cares about her clients.

Highly recommend!

Gala Parties INC supplied the chair covers/ sashes, table runners, and ceiling draping for my wedding and I was extremely happy with everything! The chair covers and runners coordinated with the linens of the reception location perfectly, and they all looked beautiful. The ceiling draping was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and was one of the finishing touches on the room that truly kicked it up a notch and made it feel extra glamorous. Michelle was great to work with, always responsive, and I thought the prices for all were extremely reasonable. Thank you for everything!!

Gala Parties did our chair covers, invitations and provided us with centerpeices. The service was outstanding!

Rented natural Chiavari chairs from gala parties inc. I shopped around at other rental places and they had the best prices per chair, and there were no extra surprise charges!! I worked with Michelle she was great and was In communication with me up until the last week when I needed to add a handful of chairs to my order and it was no problem. The chairs were beautiful and really transformed the room. If you want a wow factor in your venue I highly recommend renting Chiavari chairs they are worth the little extra!!

Michelle did the decor for my son's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful!! It was exactly what the bride & groom wanted.

Gala Parties provided the backdrops, decor, and centerpieces for our 2- day, 3-event big fat Indian Wedding. I cannot thank Michelle enough for her unbelievable work and support throughout the planning and especially during the events. Michelle was immediately very easy to talk to, always supportive, generous with her excellent and creative ideas, and always willing to add any touches I wanted last minute. We had arranged for another vendor to provide linens for one of our events, and it was an absolutely disaster! Luckily Michelle did such an amazing job with her end of the deal, that everything came together beautifully despite the disappointing table linens. Finding vendors with the skill and knowledge base to pull off the kind of backdrops and colors we needed was a huge challenge, but I remember that the day of, I was brought to tears of joy every time I entered the venue to see her beautiful work. Michelle generously threw in little details that added so much to overall effect; she threw in little purple flowers on the stage, procured strings of artificial marigolds to hang off the draping all the way from toronto, and even threw in a little guest book that saved the day when our other guestbook didn't make it in! I can honestly say that Michelle was my absolute favorite vendor when organizing my wedding; she made me feel assured that the event would look the way I had imagined, and that I wasn't alone. When you're anxiously in the midst of planning and unsure of how things will look, a late night e-mail back with a picture of exactly what you imagined is worth more than words can describe. I am so deeply thankful to Michelle for being such a responsive, supportive, cheerful, and giving person. She really put her heart and creativity into her work with us, and I'm so glad we found her just in time :)

The prices are very reasonable and She is there to help you at any time and knows how to decorate beautifully! Such a friendly person too which makes things so great!
