“I cannot speak highly enough about Emerald Invitations. After wasting my time for weeks with another shop, a friend recommended Emerald Invitations. I live in another state so I was a little hesitant to work with someone so far away at first. I’m so glad I did!”
” I can’t speak highly enough of the quality and service these guys deliver. They hit the perfect balance of flexibility in customizing whatever we wanted, while providing guidance to help us figure out what that actually was!”
“What a wonderful and fun team Mike and Chris are!!! We had know idea what we were doing in picking out our invitations etc. and they were so patient and kind!!”
“Great experience working with them! They were very helpful when we went to their store to look at invitations. They were very responsive to all of my questions and the invitations came out beautifully.”
