At Creative Invites and Events, we help integrate your personal style, venue, and theme into a dream wedding that you can call your own. From your attire, all the way to the flowers, location, and colors – each aspect plays an important role imparting your vision to your loved ones.

Knowing this, we asked our past couples who went above and beyond for their wedding. Each vendor is given a display space in our complimentary planning boutique so you can get FREE wedding advice from the top vendors in the area.
