Booking with Occasions was the best decision we made. Mary made selecting the invitations and stationary fun. Mary's attention to detail and thoroughness resulted in beautifully perfect invitations. We had the inside and outside envelopes addressed by the stationer -- it saved us hours of hand addressing and the look was neat and classy. For an extra cost, Mary made us a Seating Scroll --that way our guests could quickly determine where at what table they were seated and they didn't have to stop and pick up individual seating cards.

Mary helped me find the invitation of my dreams within my budget. I received so many compliments on our invitations. The quality was exceptional for the price. The programs were made for me in a very short timeframe. They coordinated with the invitations and Mary spent a lot of time on the phone with me to make sure every detail was correct. Mary is very timely in her responses and pays attention to every detail. It was wonderful to work with someone local and who I knew was just an email, phone call, or visit away. I would highly recommend working with Mary at Occasions!

I was introduced to Occasions through a local bridal show. I was very impressed with the quality and selection that I saw and made an appointment to discuss options with Mary. The meetings with Mary were AMAZING! Her dedication to making making my wedding special truly showed through each meeting, email, and phone call. Mary was always professional and quick to respond to any question or need I had. She had great insight into the small details such as addressing invitations, wording, fonts, and overall style.

The quality of the invitations I saw were unbeatable also. Before, meeting Mary at the bridal show, I had ordered sample invites off of various websites online. They do not even come close to the quality and sophistication of the products and service that Occasions has to offer.

I believe that the real excitement of a wedding for a guest starts the moment they open an invitation. The invitations and service through Occasions and Mary will not disappoint.

Mary has your best interest in mind. She didn't want me to overspend anywhere and gave me tips where I could save money! She was very flexible with me on meeting times and had no problem working around my schedule. Despite having clients with earlier wedding dates than me, she was quick to get my proofing and final product to me in less than 2 weeks from start to finish! She really is great to work with, highly recommend her to anyone in this area.

Mary was awesome to work with. She helped us find the perfect invitations for our wedding and really knew her stuff. I was clueless about the different types of printing and she helped me understand everything so I could pick the invitation that was best for us. She was so kind and always got back to me right away on any questions that I had. I would highly recommend her to anyone. You will get beautiful invitations for your event and you will be satisfied with the service you receive!

Mary was amazingly helpful to us. We procrastinated our timeline for invitations and were concerned about getting a quality product in a rushed time period. Mary helped us pick out beautiful invitations and worked with our timeline. The quality and quantity of invitations she has is spectacular. She professionalism can't be matched. We highly recommend Mary at Occasions.

I absolutely loved working with Mary in picking out the invitations for my wedding. She was so helpful in guiding us through the collection of invites that we could choose from, based on our personal style and the style of our wedding. She was very professional and very affordable. Whenever we had questions, she was always available and was very patient!! It was much appreciated! Our invitations were gorgeous and I am so happy we chose to work with Mary and Occasions!

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!

Very hurt! This does not even require a response, given that Annalicia wrote this to me in a 2/22/14 RESPONSE: "So my guess is you probably sent the proofs before but I am terrible with technology and I am probably doing something to mess it all up!" Anyways, as a professional, I had kept in touch on a regular basis with this client, also sending her reminders to please review the proofs and advise if approved. Additionally, yes, I did charge for my time putting the ribbon on her cards, a mere $30.00. I spent my time doing this for her on a Friday evening so she could get her invitations in the mail over the weekend. Unfortunately, I have learned a good deed never goes unpunished, this is true. As always, I provide my brides with up to 50 reception cards free if they like my FB page. This bride is not being truthful when she states I didn't give it to her. I did question whether she liked it because I can see all my likes, and she simply didn't show up on my like list. This is an entry from her final invoice...her reception cards were only $38.00 after providing her 50 reception cards free. Reception Card /Accommodation info on back of reception card: 100 $38.50. I only charged her $10.00 for the special ordered ribbon and yes, I am guilty of charging her $30.00 for my time for putting the ribbons on the cards which was not an easy task. This young lady thought it was perfectly acceptable to write me a check for the full amount of the invoice when she came over on a Sunday to pick up her invitations. She was sent a final invoice the evening before, obviously she had looked at because she made the check out for the amount, came to my office, picked up the invites and then left, never questioned me on anything, although i would have been more than happy to discuss The next day she called me and said that she was blown away by her final invoice. It proceeded from there with her angry calls and screaming at me. I will not further defend myself!
