  • Arlene is incredible – she made the invitation process an absolute joy! She attentively listened to what I had in mind and showed me numerous examples to help me further figure out my stylistic preferences. When I decided I wanted to do our invitation suite in hand calligraphy, she supported me as we worked to find the calligrapher and get the style just right. Of all the wedding vendors we worked with, Arlene was by far the most impressive. When our “Save the Dates” arrived with a tiny error due to a printing issue, she immediately got a new batch for us from the printer. When we needed some creative signage around our venues, Arlene created signs that were so beautiful our guests asked to take them home! My husband and I will treasure our invitation for years to come – the final result was absolutely stunning. Multiple guests went out of their way to tell us our invitation was the most beautiful they had ever seen! However, more than anything else, what sets Arlene apart i... Read more

  • This is the place to go if you want quality service and products. Arlene was wonderful to work with. She's very knowledgeable about the design process, timelines, and the wedding industry as a whole. We worked on creating a custom design that included a family crest and it turned out beautifully. We incorporated design details within the crest to the other cards and it really brought everything together. My fiance and I, along with our families, are very happy with the invitations. Planning a wedding is not always easy, however I always felt like things were under control and taken care of with Arlene, and that is worth a lot.

  • Of all the choices that we had to make in planning our wedding, the invitation process seemed the most daunting. Too many options! Then we met Arlene. She helped us sort through the process, gave us clear (but flexible) deadlines, offered guidance in Emily Post best-in-class etiquette, and led us to an elegant solution to this important part of the wedding plan. The selections that we made with Arlene's guidance reflected our special tastes and considerations for this second-time-around event. We highly recommend Arlene Cronk and Invitations and Company to anyone planning a special occasion.

  • We were thrilled with our custom wedding invitations created by Invitations & Company. Our wedding ceremony was held at the historic Old North Church, and we wanted some of that Boston history to be reflected in our invitations. We initially came across Invitations & Company at a wedding industry event at The Hampshire House, and were immediately drawn to the beautiful letterpress invitations incorporating Boston landmarks that they had on display. We thought they may be too expensive given the high quality of the stationary, but Callen was able to give us some suggestions to cut costs without sacrificing quality or design, and we were able to make it work with our budget. While we were a little late in starting the design of our custom invitations, Callen assured us they could be done on time, and walked us through the process of selecting everything from the paper, fonts, color, wording, etc. and provided helpful recommendations along the way. They hadn't created an invitation depict... Read more

  • Arlene Cronk made the entire invitation process seamless and stress free. The office is a lovely, tranquil spot filled with beautiful samples. Arlene responded quickly to any questions and timelines were always met. Additionally she was a great resource throughout the process on rules of etiquette. The finished product was everything I hoped it would be.

  • Words can not explain how pleased I am with my invitations. Invitations & Company has exceeded my expectations. I am beyond happy with the way the invitations turned out. It's really hard to find people that genuinely care about your invitations and making sure they stay within your proposed budget. There are so many things that go into factor when it comes to an invite and both Callen and Arlene guide you in finding your budget and making every little decision needed on the invitations. Trust me there are a ton of options that can be extremely overwhelming but Callen and Arlene both help you get there. They are both professional, friendly, and caring. I just want to give a special thanks to Callen for being so patient with me. In the beginning I certainly struggled a lot with what I wanted but she really guided me and helped me through it all. We looked through a bunch of books and she did the work to find me quotes on 5 invitations in less than a week. Which is a lot of work ... Read more

  • Arlene is absolutely amazing. She made me feel so comfortable and walked me through every step of the process. She is easy to talk to and makes you feel like a friend not just a customer. I was especially touched when she sent a card the week before our wedding to wish us congratulations. She really has a gift for her work and I will always remember what a pleasure it was to work with her. Thank you again for all your help!

  • Arlene patiently works with the bride, groom and family to capture and design an invitation that reflects the event and the personality of the individuals. We especially appreciated her expertise and willingness to answer our many questions. Arlene is just as vested in the results as the bride and groom. Thank you, Arlene!

  • I cannot begin to express what a joy it was to work with Arlene and Invitations & Company! After leaving an invitation store at a local mall in a panic because the sales associate could not understand my order, I remembered that a friend had given me Arlene's name and from my first email exchange with her, it was as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders! She is kind, creative, flexible (somehow managing to perfectly handle this entire order through only email exchanges since we do not live in the Boston area), accommodating, encouraging...I could go on and on! Not only were the invitations everything we hoped they would be, but she connected us with the most beautiful calligrapher who was able to exactly replicate the invitation font for our envelopes. Even though we are not local, we will unquestionably be returning to Invitations & Company for all of our future stationery needs. True to their website name (www.bestinvite.com), there is no question that they are THE best!... Read more

  • Arlene is absolutely wonderful to work with! Her taste level is impeccable and she helped us pick the most beautiful Vera Wang pocket fold invitations. She is perfectly suited for this career and really takes time to work with each couple. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for any types of invitations!

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about Arlene and Invitations & Company. I just picked up my invitations last week and could not be happier with how they turned out - they are absolutely stunning! Arlene made the entire process easy and enjoyable - from our initial 2 hour meeting where she answered every question and walked us through the painstaking process of choosing papers, fonts, and ink colors to every one of the numerous emails I sent her throughout the process. Arlene is extremely responsive - your email or phone call won't go unanswered for more than a few hours and she is always very easy to reach. It can be scary to custom design an invitation and not know what the final product will look like until you pick your order up but my invitations honestly look BETTER than I had imagined they would. Of course, the invitations are pricier than your run-of-the-mill invite but that is to be expected for a custom invitation and the quality you get makes it well worth the price. I w... Read more

  • Arlene at Invitations & Company is amazing!! She helped my fiance and I pick out exactly what we had envisioned when I was browsing the William Arthur website. She had no issue working within our budget and was so helpful with etiquette advice. She always promptly responded to my emails and requests and always gave gentle suggestions or her honest opinion when I asked for it. Items shipped and arrived so quickly. The digitally printed calligraphy we did through her/William Arthur was a little disappointing (they got several names and addresses wrong even after several proofs and it just looked cheap/poorly done for the price we paid). The only issue we ran into was programs, but that was more of a technical difficulty because Crane & Co merged with WA and the new website consequently erased a programs project I had created on my account (and sent to Arlene) but was waiting to order until we got a more solid guest headcount. It ended up a disaster and we unfortunately couldn't use A... Read more
