Everything I needed
Missy was exactly what I was looking for in a day of coordinator. She made our reception come to life with her custom creations and designs. I highly recommend her for custom invites as well. She took all the day of stress off of me and was a friendly, pleasure to work with through the entire planning process.Sent on 12/06/2018

Occasion Creation is the BEST!
We came to Missy for help with our invitation and place card setting designs. We live out of town so we had to communicate mostly thru email. Missy was amazing to work with and provided us with high quality and beautiful invitations and escort cards. She made the process so easy, & answered any questions in a timely manner. I would recommend Occasion Creations to any bride in need of stationary products & wedding design!Sent on 11/19/2018

Missy was a dream come true during the last month prior to my wedding. She eased so much stress I felt in finishing important details for the reception. She created table numbers, escort cards, menu cards and various signs that captured the elegance my husband and I desired. Her products fit in perfectly with the rest of decor we had chosen for the room. Missy was sweet and truly cared that I was getting what I desired. My wedding would not have been as amazing if it were not for her and her team setting up an amazing cookie table that received over 50,000 views on Pittsburgh Beautiful's Facebook page. All items she setup were thoughtfully placed and granted a magical feel.Sent on 11/28/2018

Wonderful to work with!
Missy was the absolute best to work with. I went to her for help with wedding event design and invitations. I LOVED my wedding invitations and received so many compliments from my guests. Missy pulled the theme/colors from my invite into the event signs and overall design. Everything was perfect the day of my event--she made my vision of my wedding day a reality. She kept me on track with timelines. She made the entire process much less stressful. Easy to work with. Her attention to detail is on point. One of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding was hiring Missy and Occasions Creation!Sent on 11/23/2018

Excellent service and product
Missy was fantastic to work with! I've hired her on two separate occasions:Sent on 11/26/2018
1. Bridal Shower - Missy hit the ball out of the park with this! I am not a "girly girl" and was having a difficult time transforming a somewhat industrial looking restaurant into a bridal shower space. I had a general idea of what I wanted but she was great with helping me turn that idea into a reality. She helped me with space layout, seating, colors, linens, decorations, games, signage, etc... She brought just the right amount of femininity to the industrial space and it was GORGEOUS! She and her team set everything up and broke everything down at the end of the party; I didn't realize it beforehand but that was a HUGE help!
2. Wedding signage - Missy helped us create a lot of signage for our wedding; she listened to what our vision was then created all of our proofs. Her layouts were creative, the color scheme, images and font all blended with the feel of our venue/wedding and her turnaround time was faster than expected. We did have a few changes to some of the signs (we had a ton of signs/posters/cards/etc.) and were so thankful that she's a great listener; we explained the changes and she implemented them - done!
I would absolutely recommend Missy and am positive we'll be working together again soon!

Amazing, Stunning, and Beautiful!
Missy was the absolute best! Her invitations set the entire tone for my wedding.They were stunning and beautiful. I had a destination wedding and Missy was able to help me get everything I wanted while still making it easy for me to travel with. She helped me with my welcome packages for my guests, which were also unbelievably beautiful. Her thought and attention to detail are immeasurable.Sent on 11/19/2018
I met Missy through one of my best friends (she was the wedding coordinator for her big day). Words cannot describe how beautiful her work is. I recommend her to everyone I know. If you are looking, look no further than Occasion Creations! Oh and did I forget to mention how amazing the prices were for the quality!!!!
Thank you Missy for making my wedding day so memorable!
Kelsey · Married on 09/16/2017
LOVED my wedding invitations!! They were absolutely beautiful. My colors were navy and blush. The invites were navy background with floral design with shades of pink and the envelopes were shimmery blush. Missy also did the signs for my wedding and name cards that went along with the theme of the invites which added a touch of extra color to the venue. She was so easy to work with and exceeded my expectations. Her personality was great to work with. She really helped me in choosing a font and word choices. I would absolutely recommend Missy.Sent on 10/12/2017

I used Melissa's services for my daughter's wedding and was very pleased with the results. The invitations were beautiful and designed with a personal touch. A couple of my friends said they were the most beautiful invites they had ever received. She also designed a candy table for the guest favors. She was on vacation the day of set up but took 3 pictures and step by step instructions of how to set it up and it turned out perfect. She has an awesome personality, bubbly and energetic and seemed genuinely as excited as we were to plan the event. I would love to use her for my 2nd daughter's wedding!Sent on 09/10/2017

Other than the groom, I think the best wedding decision I made was hiring Missy and Occasions Creations. She designed our invitations and all signage, the event design and the cookie table for our wedding. Planning a Pittsburgh wedding from Philadelphia, I was very nervous feeling stressed or overwhelmed. But Missy made it so much fun and stress free. She designed the most beautiful invitations, which guests could not stop raving about. And made my vision of the look of the wedding a reality. Her prices are more than fair and she was worth every penny for the stress that she saved me on my wedding day. I was able to really enjoy everything without worrying. I can't recommend her enough (and do to any friend getting married in Pittsburgh). Thank you so much Missy!Sent on 05/25/2017

Missy was awesome. During the process we had email issues due to the server and missy stayed on top of things to make sure we were receiving emails. The work she did for us was amazingly beautiful. We could not have been more pleased. She nailed exactly what we wanted. Everything matched beautifully from our ceremony programs to signs and seating chart. She is a true professional and is really great to work with. I would recommend her to family and friends. She made our special day more beautiful with her touches.Sent on 11/18/2016

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Missy, and about her company Occasion Creation. This woman does BEAUTIFUL work and an incredibly reasonable cost. Missy did the signage for our wedding, as well as our full size table chart. I was blown away! Not only is her work beautiful, but she was so fun to work with. Being a very Type-A bride, she was there for every nit-picky email and text message with reaffirming words and positive vibes. I 100% recommend Occasion Creation for your wedding needs.Sent on 11/10/2016

Missy created beautiful escort cards, signs and table number cards for our wedding. The services that she provided were included in our wedding package from the Doubletree Hotel. She responded quickly to emails and was very easy to get a hold of with questions. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for great products to complete their event.Sent on 10/19/2016

My husband asked me who my favorite "vendor" from our wedding was and I responded with Missy. I had a vision of what I wanted my save-the-dates, invitations, and other paper goods to look like and she was able to bring it life (what was created was even better than what I had envisioned). She was extremely helpful, prompt, and gave great suggestions. All of her products were of the highest quality and far exceeded our expectations. We are so grateful for all of the time and energy that she dedicated to us. 5 Stars to Missy!Sent on 12/08/2016

Kara · Married on 06/11/2016
Occasion Creation was one of the best, if not, THE best decision I made for my wedding! I needed someone to do all of the setup and cleanup the day of my wedding at the Westin Convention Center. I was referred to Missy and she was the answer to my prayers! I was so overly impressed with Missy after our first phone call and then our first meeting, she lifted such a huge weight off of my shoulders. She went on to design the most beautiful wedding invitations that exceeded my expectations from inspiration I gathered on Pinterest. She also made all the matching paper products for the ceremony and reception. She used all my decorations and incorporated them so perfectly throughout the space. She went so far above and beyond that she actually walked my ceremony flowers back to the reception since all the roads were closed in Pittsburgh for Pride. She also saved the day by finding and making the arrangements for a chair cover vendor for me when the one I had expected to use was unavailable. I sobbed when I got to see the ballroom for a sneak peak. She is the reason my wedding vision became the wedding of my dreams. Until you experience working with her, you won't understand how impressive she truly is!Sent on 11/21/2016
Occasion Creation's reply:Your review just made my day!!! A satisfied client is everything to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and for sharing your experience with future Occasion Creation clients. THANK YOU <3, Missy

We used Missy and Occasion Creation for our wedding invitations, and EVERYTHING that went into creating our amazing wedding day-- decor, lighting, centerpieces, and much more, including setting up AND tearing down all in the same day!Sent on 11/25/2016
When we first met with Missy we had an idea of what we wanted for our invitations, but were a little scatter brained as to exactly what style we wanted to go with. Missy was unbelievably patient with us and helped out figure out exactly what we wanted by asking questions and showing us plenty of examples. After numerous e-mails with Missy of her sending us our proofs and making sure everything was just right, we received our invitations and we so happy with the way they turned out! They completely set the scene for our rustic/vintage wedding!
We also used Occasion Creation for the planning of our special day. Again, Missy was incredibly patient and helped us bring our dream to a reality. Her studio is amazing and she can show you examples of pretty much anything that you could ever want for your wedding! Not only was she busy putting together some of our centerpieces, lighting, and other special details, she was also checking in with all of our other vendors to make sure everyone knew exactly where they had to be and when. Coming into our reception and seeing all of our loved ones around such a BEAUTIFUL space was absolutely breathtaking, all thanks to Missy! And, we were SHOCKED to see her at the end of the night starting to tear everything down!
Missy of Occasion Creation is hands down the absolute BEST at what she does. She is fun, hard working, detail oriented, and makes you feel like family when working with her. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for an event planner!
Occasion Creation's reply:Hi Amanda! Thank you for the incredibly sweet review. I loved working with you guys and reading feedback like this is so rewarding. I am beyond happy when my clients are satisfied with the services I provide for them so your kind words mean a lot to me:) best wishes, Missy

Missy from Occasion Creation helped me design the wedding of my dreams! I wanted a fall wedding theme with subtle hints of Halloween and Missy nailed every detail. She was extremely patient while we went over paper choices for invitations and showed me lots of amazing examples. After the design was finished she created proofs in just a few days. All of our communication was prompt and timely. Our invitations were perfect and we received so many compliments on how beautiful they were. Because we had a Hallo-Wedding, we of course had to have candy! Missy designed a terrifyingly terrific candy table filled with spooktacular treats for our guests! Her glassware was beautiful and the trick-or-treat, love is sweet candy table was a hit with kids and adults. Occasion Creation helped to bring my dream wedding to fruition and I cannot thank Missy enough for her amazing attention to detail, exceptional ideas, and hard work! With a 6 month engagement, she made wedding planning a breeze for this crazy teacher who had always dreamed of a beautiful fall wedding! Thank you, Missy!Sent on 12/10/2015
