    Elegant and accommodating

    Special Occasions did a wonderful job with my linen for the wedding. Everything was very nicely laid out. They also helped me with recommendations of linen we could not order cause of Covid. Everything turned out perfect and would not change anything about it. Thank you.

  • IMA Brookwood Golf & Banquet Center Country Club Weddings

    We have worked with Lorrie and her staff at Special Occasions East for years and they are definitely the leader in linens & chair covers in the Genesee County area. Not only do our brides use Special Occasions but IMA Brookwood uses Special Occasions for all of the special events that we host at IMA Brookwood Banquet Center. They are always professional and willing to go the extra mile to make sure their clients are happy.

  • Centennial Image Photography Wedding Photographers

    Special Occasions is fantastic to work with - we have photographed so many weddings where they have provided the linens and chair covers. Everything always looks fantastic and the couples and families are always thrilled with their efforts.

  • Mylaija Andress Event Planning Wedding Planners

    I've worked with Lori and her team on many occasions. They're always very courteous and flexible. Because I work a full time job during they day they often stay late to accomodate my schedule. They have an excellent quality and selection in linens. The best in our area. I highly recommend Special Occasions to my brides and all my clients.
