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

Karen is a wonderfully talented woman with a unique and lovely set of skills. She takes great care and time to learn your style and help you design every facet of your invitation, creating something you will not see anywhere else. She is amazing at helping you stay within your budget while still producing something brilliant. I came away with items completed two weeks ahead of schedule and a new tradition of serving myself a cup of tea with fine china. It was a wonderful experience and I can't wait for my next event that requires a collaboration with Karen!Sent on 02/17/2018
Custom Creations & Invitations's reply:Ashley...That was so very sweet of you! Thank you so much for your kind words. I loved every minute of our time together and can't wait to work with you again! My very best to all of you....I'll be thinking of you on your special day.
GREGORY · Married on 06/23/2018
Chelsea and I wish we would have found Karen prior to ordering our invitations at an "on-line" site. Karen was wonderful to work with. When our "on-line" invitations arrived in pieces Karen came to the rescue and offered her services at very reasonable rates. She is very creative and has an impressive display of her work for you to peruse prior to making your choice. We really appreciate her relaxed and thoughtful attitude as it made the entire process enjoyable for us. No internet web site can give you Karen's high level of service or professional advice based on her years of service to many in our community. We will never again order wedding invitations on-line. Karen's office is conveniently located and she will schedule an appointment that is convenient for you.Sent on 04/30/2018

I can't explain how amazing my experience with Karen was! She is such a wonderful person and was so invested in making sure our invitations and table numbers we're going to turn out exactly as we wanted them to! The amount of time she devoted to us, from introducing herself well, to having us over to come up with our own personal design, to inviting us back over to see the drafts, to handcrafting every invitation, to showing us the final product, was absolutely amazing to see. It's obvious she enjoys what she does and we couldn't be any happier with our experience. We have gotten so many people who have reached out to us just to express how beautiful our invitations were and how they have never seen anything like them! So thank you, Karen, so much for all of your hard work and for taking such good care of us. You were part of the introduction to the wedding for our guests, and I believe that after seeing the invitations YOU created, everyone is even more excited about our big day! You are amazing, so thank you! <3Sent on 04/17/2018
Custom Creations & Invitations's reply:Wow, Raechel...that was just the sweetest review! Thank you so much for your kind words and for your enthusiasm! Your invitation was definitely unique and I'm so happy your guests liked them. I love that you included your adorable dogs on the triple table number cards! Congratulations and my very best wishes to you both.

Custom Creations & Invitations's reply:Awww...thank you Darcel! That was very sweet. Lia's bridal shower invitations with the 3-D dresses on them were one of my favorite creations recently! I look forward to seeing you at the Ladies Brunch at your church next month. Thank you for thinking of me!
Katie · Married on 09/02/2017
I was so thrilled with how our wedding tri-fold cards turned out. Guests were commenting on how cute and personal the cards were. Karen was so wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone for all sorts of ideas. She also made a personalized card for my groom, flower girl, and both mothers. They were a perfect addition to their gift! Thanks for everything, Karen!Sent on 09/10/2017
Custom Creations & Invitations's reply:Thank you so much Katie and Congratulations! I really enjoyed the time spent with you and your mom designing things. I'm so glad the triple table cards were a hit. and I do love creating those little handmade cards and I'm so glad they liked them ( hope your mom was surprised...). My warmest regards to you and your family!
Janet · Married on 07/15/2017
Words can not express how beautiful my wedding invitations are and how creative Karen is! From the materials, to the colors, to the wording to the added artwork, to the touch of bling, my invitation is truly a work of art! The guests' excitement and the comments I received were overwhelming to me! "Your invitation took my breath away"..."The most gorgeous invitation I've ever seen"...."I had to sit down before I fell down when I opened your invitation"...."The most unique invitation I've ever seen"...."My daughter asked me if those were real diamonds, and honestly, I didn't know what to tell her"......."What a classy invitation".Sent on 04/25/2017
The only down side to this invitation, is now, the pressure is on me to make sure the wedding lives up to the bar that has been set so high by the invitation! Lol!
Thanks so much Karen! You set the tone for the type of wedding event I have always dreamed of! You're the best!
Kim · Married on 06/30/2017
I was supposed to be married this past June and unfortunately (or thankfully, however you want to look at it) my wedding got called off! I had already ordered my wedding invitations with my ex fiancé and Karen had just e-mailed me a couple days after to tell me they were ready. My wedding had been called off just a few days before so obviously, I was devasted. My ex wouldn't even speak to me (he called it off because he said after three years he just didn't love me anymore) well aside from that, I was left paying for everything. I had a $2,800 wedding dress I still had to pay off for a wedding I wasn't having and I lost all of the deposits for everything. I knew I obviously still had to pay for my wedding invitations and all of Karen's hardwork but, I wanted him to pay! Karen went out of her way to call him for me, even though she didn't have to. Yes, he came with me to pick out the wedding invitations but he did not sign for them. By law I was required to pay for them and how unfair is that due to me paying for EVERYTHING for a wedding I'm not having because he changed his mind. Karen called him simply stating the money was due for the invitations and he paid for them! She even had one of her workers deliver them to my house. June 24th would have been my bachelorette party and I finally opened my wedding invitations to burn them in a celebratory fire. They were gorgeous and I was disappointed I was never able to use them. Karen personalized these invitations for us and incorporated one of our pictures from then Virgin Islands where we got engaged. We were having a beach themed wedding and Karen didn't stop trying until she made our picture of one of the beaches we took on our trip work perfectly ! Even though I loved burning his money in the fire, I saved the beautiful starfish that were on each of our invitations. Karen went above and beyond to give me exactly what I wanted and she was so sweet and helpful about this whole blessing in disguise.Sent on 09/10/2017

I don't even know where to start. Karen was fantastic. She made the invitation of my dreams! I am someone who notices all the small details in life and my invitations had so much effort and fine detail it was amazing. My friends and family were blown away and felt so special opening them. I received so many compliments. Karen also did my triple cards for the table numbers and seating chart which turned out better than I could imagine! Everyone loved them. She added beautiful detail to our special day. Not only is her work impeccable her custom service is great! She was calm, friendly, and flexible with us as we planned. If you want your invitations/ other creations to blow your friends and family away-- go with karen you will not regret it! Thank karen!!Sent on 06/19/2017

Karen at Custom Creations & Invitations is neat - sweet...petite...and one of the most favorite parts of our wedding planning. She is so amazing with her knack for designing just what you envisioned...but really didn't know before you got there! She helps you to discover all the possibilities and the end result really is awesome and sets the tone for your entire wedding. She pulls out beautiful papers and ribbons and lace and doo-dads and designs it with you while you are sitting there and then helps you write your custom wording as well. If you want a very personal experience and gorgeous invitations I wouldn't go anywhere else.She really just wants this to be a special time for you. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a great, personalized service.Sent on 04/14/2017

I would hands down recommend Custom Creations & Invitations to any bride that is looking for the "Wow Factor" for wedding invitations! Karen is extremely creative with her ideas and special designer touch. She was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning and literally makes you feel as if you are her only customer. She patiently sat down with my mother and I, as she showed us a plethora of options for invitations. I ended up purchasing our wedding invitations and triple cards for the tables at our reception through Karen. Since sending out the invitations I have received numerous phone calls and text messages saying that the invitations were gorgeous and extremely elegant! I even had one guest write a note on the back of their response card saying that it was "by far the best wedding invitation they have ever seen, and that they couldn't wait for the wedding". This is the perfect way to set the tone for your big day, with sending out custom invitations. Karen was great with communication during the entire process as well. We were able to talk, text and email so that everyone was on the same page. I couldn't be more pleased with the finished product! :-)Sent on 06/04/2015

I came to Karen at Custom Creations with literally no ideas for my wedding invitations, other than I wanted them to look elegant and follow our Christmas theme colors (deep red and gold). The final product was simply amazing! I felt like my (now) husband and I were able to really create something so unique to us, with Karen's guidance and expertise of course. There were so many different options in every price range! I plan to use Custom Creations for every major life event in the future!Sent on 01/08/2015

Yolanda · Married on 09/26/2014
Karen was the best I was able to design my wedding invite just the way I wanted. I highly recommend her if you want a unique invite. So many people called me after they received their invite to tell me how beautiful my invitation was. I only had one issue and that came when it was time to mail out the invite. The heavier the invite the more you will pay to have them mailed. I had issues with the post office on sending them out they measured and weighed in at one rate but some post offices wanted to charge me to have it delivered as a parcel which was expensive to do so I had to make sure I went to the RIGHT post office who didn't require me to do that and also one post office didn't deliver the invite due to missing postage as when it was sent to the person's actual post office to be sent out to delivery they too wanted to have it shipped as a Parcel so refused to send them the invite until remaining postage was paid....it was an headache to send the invites off.Sent on 10/15/2014

I discovered Custom Creations and Invitations at a Wedding Expo. I had been looking online at handmade inviations for my wedding already, so the items at Custom Creations and Invitations were right up my alley. I was very excited to find out I could have a meeting with the owner of Custom Creations and design an invitation that was unique and exactly what I wanted for my event. They had beautiful papers, designs, and accents. I had a specific look I wanted, and they were able to execute it perfectly. I decided on a tri-fold design with wrap around lace and pink and gold accents. The invitations were made very quickly and the company was very easy to work with. I loved them so much I went back and got mini ceremony programs and menus that matched. My guests raved over how beautiful and fancy my invitations were. I would recommend Custom Creations and Invitations to anyone who wants exquisite, unique and breathtaking invitations. I will definitely be back for baby shower invitations! :-)Sent on 10/22/2014

Karen with Custom Creations was truly a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and accommodating to all of my needs. I got invitations, place cards, thank you notes, and programs made for my wedding and they were all beautiful and the quality was top notch! I got SO many compliments on my invitations- many of my guests told me they were the most beautiful invites they had ever seen! I had a few unique requests that Karen accommodated without a problem. She also gave great suggestions when I wasn't sure on a decision that needed to be made. I have a very hectic schedule and she was always able to work my appointments around it. She was so much fun to work with and made these important details of my wedding perfect! I highly recommend using Custom Creations for all of your invitation needs!Sent on 05/16/2014

Karen and Jean at Custom Creations and Invitations are absolutely wonderful! The process of designing our custom invitations is one that my husband, mother, and I will never forget. Each little detail of the invitation down to the perfectly selected crystal buckle was executed to perfection. As soon as the invitations were received by my guests, my then-fiancé and I were flooded with calls, emails, and texts about how they were the most beautiful invitations that they had ever seen. I still smile when I walk into a family member or friend’s house and see the little invitation sitting in their curio cabinet or on a coffee table. In addition to the invitations (that my guests still rave about) I also ordered my table numbers, programs, and seating chart from Custom Creations and Invitations. Each added an additional touch of elegance to my big day. For any bride that wants to make her special day that much more perfect, I highly recommend Custom Creations and Invitations.Sent on 09/04/2013

I found Custom Creations & Invitations on The Knot and one weekend that I happened to be in Detroit, my mother and I went over to Karen's studio to meet her and check out prices. By the time we left Karen had designed my invitation and promised a date for my mother to return and review the proof.Sent on 08/19/2012
The results were AMAZING! I've had people commenting on their RSVP cards how it is the most beautiful invitation they had ever seen.
The best part? Karen was able to not only create exactly what I wanted but the price was amazing as well. $5 per invite! Karen and her team pour their hearts into these invitations and it shows.
She is located in Metro Detroit but will take orders from anywhere.. I HIGHLY recommend using her for your invitation needs!
