What People Are Saying

I have two words I can use to describe Mara at Allure: The Best. 

We found her last-minute searching online for someone who could do invitations for our son's bar mitzvah and there is no question we were very lucky to have called her first. We were very late getting invitations done and Mara assured us that we would have enough time to create something amazing; she undersold her skills in this area significantly.
Mara created an entire custom package and incorporated our ideas - and requests from our son - while adding her enormous creativity and, honestly, we could not be happier with the invitations. They were a huge hit and, most importantly, our son was blown away. 
What's also important to note is that we did have a few glitches from some of the vendors, but Mara figured out how to solve the problems created by others and ensure we got exactly what we wanted and exactly on time. 
Bottom line is that if you want someone who knows what she's doing, has amazing creativity, exceptional customer service and whom you can trust to actually get it done especially at a time in your life when you have lots of other things to worry about, Mara is the one to go to. Period.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! People are seriously raving about the invites. I’ve included an excerpt below (he he)   “Hi Britney, I just had to let you know that your wedding invitation is the most beautiful one I have ever seen.  It is elegant, charming and romantic.” – Emily P.   The proof is in the pudding. It’s a hit!!!!!! We’ve been getting calls and e-mails for the last couple of days! And it’s all thanks to you and your help!

Mara was wonderful to work with. I met with her twice, once to pick out the invitations and then to pick them up. I left my first visit with two options (narrowed down from maybe 20). Once I made my decision, and sent her a layout, she sent me a proof but also called me to give me her ideas on how to really make my invitation special. She worked within my budget, tweaking things so we didnt go over, and the finished product was a beautiful, classy invitation. I was very impressed with Mara, her services, knowledge of the industry, professionalism, and fun personality really make her a five star vendor to work with. Top notch for invitations!

I cannot say enough good things about Mara. She worked with me on invitations, menus, escort cards, table numbers and programs. I went in with only an idea and she was able to find exactly the perfect mix of everything I was looking for. She was helpful in preparing the programs, which I had no idea of how to do as I'd never had to write one before. She was fast to answer and email, and always called when there was a question abotu anything. I want to have another wedding right away just so I can go to Mara for all stationery needs.

Mara was great to work with. She customized our invitations, church programs, menu cards, escort cards, and table names. Everything coordinated beautifully and we got tons of compliments. We had a little trouble working with the printing company (they made an error printing our proof). Mara assured me that everything would be fine and told me not to stress. She took care of everything and I did not have to worry one bit! I would recommend her services. She is prompt in returning telephone calls and emails and flexible with her schedule. Thanks Mara!

We were delighted with the service we received from Allure Invitations for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah.  You made the process so easy and everything went very smoothly.  The ability to customize was fantastic; we were thrilled to have one of a kind invitations designed in only one visit.

Mara was recommended to us by a family friend and she was wonderful! I had almost given up hope in finding an invitation that my fiancé and I both liked, but Mara was very patient and helped us to find the perfect one. We got so many compliments on our invitations and the process was easy. I will definitely use Mara again in the future and recommend her highly!

I have been meaning to drop you a note to say how great it was to work with you again on Erez's Bar Mitzvah invitation.  You made everything so easy.  It did not take long at all for us to pick out the perfect invite that reflected Erez's personality and they type of party we will have for him.  You went the extra step from finding out how much the postage would be to getting us extra proofs when needed!  You are the best!  I only hope you are still doing invitations when my kids get married!

~ Bar Mitzvah Mother - September 2011


Thank you again for all you did to help us with the invitations. I cannot wait to show Kait! I LOVE them. I think they are perfect for Kait and Maginn. I think right off the bat you recognized what might work for us and throughout the process were just so great to work with. Thank you again and look forward to working with you in the future!

~ Deede, Mother of the Bride, 2011


Just wanted to let you know that I am getting RAVE reviews on the invitation.  So beautiful – elegant and understated.  Many thanks again for your help.

Can you hear the collective cheer rising up from our family and friends here in CT as they receive the wedding invitation? We have been receiving emails and phone calls all day (some of our family actually received the invitation on Saturday!), and to a person, people have said it is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL invitation they have ever seen! I just received ours in the mail, and opened it ever, ever, ever so carefully... it is gorgeous, breathtaking...it is so, so much more than I ever dreamed of, and I will treasure it forever. Truly. I can't stop looking at it. And what a lovely presentation with the vellum wrap. I'm stunned!! I know I speak for Frank, too, when I say you have forever our heartfelt thanks. I am a very, VERY happy mother of the bride, thanks to you.

~ Pat, Mother of the Bride, wedding October 2010


I'm so excited to have you doing our wedding! The fabulous save the dates you created were mailed out today and I just know that within the next few days I'll be getting plenty of messages from my friends and family about how beautiful they are!

~ Jill, Bride, August 2010


I have to say (and not just because I truly love these ladies) their extreme talent and out of this world creativity is only matched by their incredible customer service and ability to work with the most insane of customers (okay, I'm talking about myself)....My daughter's bat mitzvah invitations are glorious and I owe it all to them...THANK YOU WENDY AND MARA!
