I was very happy to have the counsel of such an experienced provider as Mary to help me. I needed to include some unusual wording and she guided me well to identify and meet our needs. The invitations are in and they are beautiful. This special reception here in Michigan to honor our Daughter and Son in Law's marriage has been enhanced by the invitations Mary assisted us to find and create. Thank you.

Mary listened to our ideas and helped us throughout the process with our wedding invitations, programs and napkins. Her high attention to detail ensured the final product was perfect!! We really enjoyed working with Mary and look forward to working with her again in the future. In the end, Mary exceeded all of our expectations and formed a lasting friendship with us!!

I LOVED using Occasions to order my wedding invitations! Mary was very professional and her books of invitations were amazing. I am always skeptical at going with a vendor I do not know much about, but I can truly say that Mary did a marvelous job. We loved our invitations so much we got table numbers and a seating scroll through her. Mary was always willingly to meet with us if we were unsure about something and always responded back to e-mails and phone calls promptly. Could not have asked for a better vendor to use to get my invitations. Thanks Mary!

My invitations are absolutely beautiful, I am getting so many compliments! We had bought do-it-yourself invitations but after seeing Mary's booth at a bridal show we knew we had to order from her. The one thing I will tell brides is DO NOT OVERLOOK postage! I ended up spending $150 on stamps because each invite needed 3 stamps because of weight and bulkiness. Overall, I am very happy with the end product. It is definitely worth it to spend extra on invitations... it's the first impression people will have about your wedding!

Amanda, good point about the postage, that definitely needs to be worked into your invitation budget or somewhere in the wedding budget whether foloded into the invitation budget or "other miscellaneous." You and your mom have been a pleaure to work with! Your wedding day is going to be here before you know it! You will have a happy, memorable wedding day!

When my daughter and I started the process of choosing save the date and wedding invitations from Mary at Occasions, we had no idea how to go about the process. It's more than just picking an invitation from a book. So many more things are involved, like the size of the print, placement of the words, the actual verbage that needs to be on the invitation, making sure everything is sent in a timely manner. If something wasn't right with the printer, she took care of it, it was one less thing we didn't have to worry about.! She was more than willing to accomadate us as far as meeting us when it was convenient for us. Honestly, our invitations were absolutely beautiful!! I feel the invitations set the tone for the whole weding. I would highly reccomend Occasions!

Lori, thank you so much for the review! I really loved working with you and Barb, it was a lot of fun, probably one of my favorite wedding projects! Invitation ordering is a process, full of details, and Lori is right, when you come to a stationer to take care of the details, it is one less planning area bride and mom have to worry about, Barb's invitation is featured on the Occasions facebook page in our photo area! It is a gorgeous invite..and I will never forget, it was the very first one she tagged and her final select at the end of the invitation appointment. It definitely was her invitation!! Thanks again, Lori for the kind words!

Mary was very helpful and easy to communicate with from the start. We were so pleased with the way our invitations turned out, they were everything we were hoping for and we were able to stay, for the most part, in budget. We also really liked the idea of supporting local small business.

Mary takes the time to review all shipments by looking at each item and verifying that it meets her and customer expectations. If quality does not meet expectations she makes sure that corrections are made. She takes the time to learn and understand what we are looking for in our invitations. As well provide multiple selections for us to review to make the best decision. She really is worth to take the time to meet. We are extremely pleased with her ethics, professionalism and quality.

I had been told to go to Occasions from another vendor. I recently moved to Lansing so with not being familiar with the area, I needed all the help I could get. Our first meeting we went in with a budget and she basically laughed in our faces. We were willing to stretch the cost because she did have beautiful invitations and a wide variety. We picked out the invitations, the add ons, and quantity and she quoted us at $565. It was over budget for us but we were willing to pay the extra because we loved the invitations. She then sent us an estimated invoice online which was $580. The new price was more but we expected that since she was trying to put together the first estimate in her head. Throughout the process, Mary seemed ok at getting back to us. However, apparently she has some technology issues. She would send me a round of proofs, I responded the day of and the next time the day after telling her the corrections I wanted. A week later I would get an email asking me to respond to the proofs in which I had already responded too. It became very irritating and it took the process 2 months to finally get our invitations in. Also she told us she would give us a discount if we liked and shared her page on facebook and when I did, she denied seeing it, even though she acknowledged my like of her page on a status she put up and I liked. Our invitations also have a ribbon on it and the company didn't have our color so Mary was nice enough to order us our color. When we got our final invoice, it was $650, $85 more of the original cost. Going over our budget as it was, we weren't happy. She didn't give us the facebook discount. She neglected to tell me that the proof price went up after you did a certain amount of proofs. She charged me for putting the new ribbon in without telling me (I have hands, I could have done it myself for free). Also, when I called to question about the price, she hung up on me 3 times! Overall, I'm so happy I never have to deal with Mary again!
