Wonderful wedding invitations! Absolutely fabulous!
Working with Karen was one of the best pets of planning my wedding. She sits and talks with you to fully get to know you to ensure she makes the perfect invite for your big day! I got nothing but compliments on my invites and I recommend her to every bride I know! It adds a personal touch and is very affordable! She is willing and able to work with anyone’s budget which is awesome!Sent on 08/24/2019

Beautiful Invitation Suite
My fiancé and I wanted a "traditional" invitation to go with our classic and timeless wedding. Everything we saw online was a stack of paper wrapped in ribbon; not what we were looking for. I hadn't wanted to go custom, because I didn't think we could swing the price tag. Until I met Karen. She met with my family because my fiancé and I live out of state, and allowed us to join in via FaceTime. For the first time, someone was listening to what I was envisioning for my invitations. Not only did she immediately start pulling colors of papers and card stock, but she even put together a mock invitation while we were on the phone!Sent on 06/13/2019
Our invitations are absolutely breathtaking and exactly what I was looking for; without the shocking price tag that other custom invitations designers were quoting. And that's including the rush fee! Karen and her wonderful staff completed our order in just two weeks!
Our guests have begun receiving them in the mail, and everyone is blown away at how beautiful they are! I keep receiving compliments on them, and I've heard a few times that they're the prettiest invitations people have ever seen!
Karen and staff: thank you so much for making my vision a reality!
Custom Creations & Invitations's reply:Elisabeth...Thank you so very much for your kind words! It was such a pleasure to meet all of you and to design something so special for your wedding. The beautiful ivory lace and handmade papers you selected along with the rhinestone buckle made such a unique presentation for your guests and we are so happy to know they loved them. I wish you many blessings in your future together! Warmest regards, Karen

From the beginning of our first conversation where we met at Novi Bridal expo I knew Karen would be the one to make my vision come to life. Our wedding inspired by the 1920s Karen put her expertise to work and her creative mind to create my one of a kind invitations. Karen was not only the one who designed my invitations but was also with me every step of the way when I needed custom cards made. She also created our one of a kind seating chart so personal to us and was with me every step of the way to make it perfect. I have made a friend through this experience and will remember Karen for all my future custom creative writing I will need in our future!Sent on 07/15/2018
If you send a picture to us of your attendant's dresses...we will design a unique and personalized 3-D thank you card that looks just like their dresses, including a special personal thank you verse inside!
The owner will write a custom poem penned just for you telling the story of how the two of you met...personalized and one of a kind, and this will be your Save the Date card! Check out some of the ones she has created for others...
We have a selection of 8 beautiful wooden frames and easels for your custom seating chart needs (Sorry, MI residents only). This coupon entitles you to add the customized centered design with your wedding party attendants in it, with beautiful flourishes and images layered behind the text...a $60 value...at no extra charge from now until December 1st, 2019. Your wedding date must be within 10 months from this date. You may use a photo or other image layered behind your text as well. If you are out of state or don't want a wooden frame, we also offer foamcore. Same size, same printing, simply without a frame but on substantial foamcore.
