Melinda Cantor Designs made our Dream Invitations!
I walked into Melinda’s store with no vision and no experience designing invitations. She took the time to get to know who I was and used our conversation to help us design the invitation of our dreams. We were not only over the moon with the final product but were so impressed in how Melinda communicated with us every step of the way. On top of that, she made the challenges of Covid manageable. We decided to use Melinda for most of our wedding decor! I would recommend Melinda for any of her services!Sent on 08/19/2020

The best ever!!!!
Melinda’s work is amazing! I met with her twice and could not have had a better experience. She gave us 100% of her full attention and listened to exactly what we were looking for and gave us options/opinions which made our invitations even better! Additionally, she is such a sweet person. She is easy to get in contact with and very responsive. Her work is impeccable. She has SO many options to chose from and can customize and create literally anything you could think of or want. She is very easy to deal with and beyond accommodating. Prices are affordable too - go see her! She will work with you to create something in your price range and best part is you get to see it in person and make any changes you want/customize it to your liking before final prints. Melinda is an amazing woman who puts her whole heart into her work and cares about you as a customer. 5 stars are not enough - she needs 100!!!Sent on 11/20/2020

We spoke to and met with so many vendors throughout planning our wedding that only a few stand out and Melinda is one of them. From the moment I met Melinda at a Bourne Mansion showcase she was receptive to my ideas and extremely flexible. My fiancé and I met with her and placed the order the same day for our Save the Dates and invitation ensemble. Melinda presented us with different options to work within our price point.
Covid struck before our invitation ensemble was completed. When it came in Melinda met us at the car with her mask on and wished us the best. Working with her was a very pleasant experience and we will be repeat customers for any invitations we need in the future!Sent on 08/19/2020
