Kara Gordon was an absolute pleasure to work with! She listened to our vision, provided creativity and guidance, and produced beautiful invitations and day of stationery for our wedding. I hope to work with her again in the future!

Kara Gordon, the owner, runs an awesome invitation store, one of the best in Chicago! Not only is the selection of invites gorgeous and her willingness to deliver top shelf but her service can't be beat. We received so many compliments on our daughter’s wedding invitations and escort cards, our friends and family loved the invitations. This should be your first and only stop for all Wedding Invites and Escort Cards.

Magnificent Milestones is just the best! They helped me get my dream wedding invitation at a cost that was right within our budget. We continued to use MM for everything else paper-related because they were so great with the initial invites! In the end, in addition to the invites we ordered menus, programs, table cards, and thank you cards and they all came out so perfect and helped set the look and tone for our amazing wedding day! Highly recommend Magnificent Milestones for your wedding or any invitation needs! They are so great!

Magnificent Milestones has a design for everyone's vision. I didn't even know what our vision was until I got help from Magnificent Milestones. We had an appointment to sift through options and get ideas. Soon after we had proofs and the real thing came soon after. We got so many compliments on our Invitations and Menus. I'm still using our thank you cards too, which match our invites and menus. Everything we got from them was perfect and beautiful. I recommend them if you are looking for an elegant and individualized design for your wedding stationery.

I had a phenomenal experience throughout our wedding process. Kara gave us some fantastic recommendations to help make our vision come to life. We had a three-day wedding event and wanted paper materials for all three days... so this wasn't just the invitation. From start to finish she gave us many options and was very patient as we went through the proofing process for all the extra materials. Also, they were very accommodating with our deadlines and made sure everything was there on time. Thank you both for helping us make all our paper products so wonderful and memorable!!!

Working with Magnificent Milestones was a first-class. We ordered our save the dates, letterpress wedding invitations and all day of paper items including escort cards, personalized napkins, etc. We were able to get gorgeous items and stay within our budget: super honest if certain things would cost more and how to get what we wanted while staying where we needed to be. Everything was beyond gorgeous and we received so many compliments on the final products and working with them was amazing and kept me sane! Highly, highly recommend!!!

We did a lot of research in regards to our invites and who to go with. Our original design was about double what we wanted to spend, but Kara came up with a much more cost-effective way to get our point across. It is so easy to spend extra when it comes to paper, and Kara really kept us in check to stay in budget. I loved our design and it truly was a collaboration!

Working in the events industry, I had been into Kara's shop tons of times before getting engaged. When the day came to work on our wedding stationary, I knew Kara was my girl! She worked with me through my crazy 'creative' ideas and was supportive every step of the way. Our guests raved about the final product. The 'save the dates' and invitations set the tone for our event and got out guests so excited to attend our big day. Thank you, Kara!

Magnificent Milestones is, without a doubt, one of our top three wedding vendors! Kara, the owner, is a rock star and is such a pleasure to work with! She has been unbelievably professional, prompt, and responsive with respect to everything--the initial proposal, the proofs, and any concerns (very minor ones) we have had. We received all proofs and our final invitations in record time. Our invitations, which feature custom artwork by my fiancé, are absolutely stunning!

We had Kara do all of our paper products for our wedding last month, and it all came out fantastic! We had a lot of great comments on our invitations and save the dates. Even my guy friends who normally couldn't care less about invitations said they couldn't believe how great ours were! Kara gave us some great ideas on how to include all the information we wanted for our guest with our invitations: rehearsal dinner boat cruise, cocktail cruise, wedding/ reception and brunch info had to go to the correct guests. Everything went off without a hitch.

Magnificent Milestones handled all paper goods for my recent wedding. Kara truly took the time to understand our style, and incorporated unique touches throughout. Everything they produced was classy and stunning! We received so many compliments on our invitations, especially. It’s definitely a bespoke experience--which means more time and money invested into the process. The quality speaks for itself, and everything was handled with extreme care.

Kara did our wedding invitations, and is now doing our rehearsal dinner invites. She is absolutely talented and amazing. The invitations well exceeded our expectations. She took our vision and really brought it to the next level. I highly recommend her for any paper need. She's thoughtful, thorough, and attentive to what you are requesting. She treats paper with care and really maximizing all options.

From beginning to end it was a pleasure and the end product was exactly what my children had in mind. The process was fun, we all looked through multiple books and whittled down our choices for invitations and a myriad of other assorted paper goods. We always received prompt replies to emails and questions and everything was handled with promptly and professionally. I highly recommend Magnificent Milestones or MM as we started calling them without hesitation. Bring in your vision and they will make it happen.

Magnificent Milestones is the best store in Chicago! I was VERY specific about how I wanted my wedding invitations to look and I went to Magnificent Milestone and was blown away by the way I was treated, how much fun I had with them, and how amazing the final product turned out!  I worked with Kara, the owner, and she has to be the cutest person I've ever met. I actually wanted to be friends with her. Not only is she the sweetest, but she is SO good at what she does!  She saw my vision and worked with me for hours to create my dream final product. If you want to work with the most professional and amazing people look no further and go into Magnificent Milestones and have fun planning your wedding invitations or any invitations!

I absolutely loved working with Kara for our wedding invitations! I was so happy with her service, and would recommend Magnificent Milestones to anyone I know looking for high quality wedding stationery and other wedding day paper items. Not only do you get high quality, rich looking products...but the other great part is that Kara's expertise and creativeness are included! Our invitations came out beautiful, we had so many compliments on them. The ideas that Kara comes up with are amazing, and she really did some fun and unique things with our other wedding day paper products (programs, menus, coasters, and welcome bag cards)!

I had the pleasure of working with Kara from Magnificent Milestones on my wedding invitations and rehearsal dinner invitations. I heard about their company from several wedding planners all who said MM was THE place to go with. I met with them early on to learn about the process and peruse. Kara was so patient with me. She gave me a great overview and helped me figure out what I wanted. We looked through dozens of options. She sent an estimate and I compared it to other stationery stores in the Chicago area and it was very competitive and actually less than a lot of other stores I looked at. I met with her several more times to go over lots of details and she was always so patient with me and gave me plenty of time and attention at our appointments. Our invitations were so beautiful and we got numerous compliments on them.  I will definitely use MM again and would recommend them to friends.

I walked into Magnificent Milestones and met Kara. She is unbelievable. She sat with me for an hour and half during our first meeting and helped me customize my save the dates, invitations, menus, and place cards by taking elements from 4 different invitations and combining them together to 1 beautiful look for all my different paper. I immediately trusted her opinion and ideas. The prices are very reasonable and if you give her your budget, she will find ways to help you achieve the look you are going for while staying in your price range. She is great about getting back to you right away with any questions you have and totally gets the whole wedding planning process. She saved me a lot of time and stress which I am sure any bride-to-be appreciates!

What an amazing experience! We recently ordered our wedding invitations with Magnificent Milestones. Kara, the owner, was very welcoming and easy to work with. She knew her product--when we picked out an invitation that was outside of our budget, she was able to find us something similar in our price range that we loved. She was also patient, and always easy to contact, and prompt, as we went through several rounds of revisions of the invitation. She was one of the most pleasant people that I worked with throughout the entire wedding process. I can't recommend her services more highly.

We used Magnificent Milestones for our wedding invitations and thank you cards. Both turned out beautifully! We worked with Kara, the owner, and she was professional and efficient. I would definitely recommend Magnificent Milestones to anyone who wants to take the guess work out of their paper needs!

Kara did a wonderful job helping me choose and order wedding invitations, ceremony programs, escort cards, menu cards and other miscellaneous paper goods for my wedding. She is personable, patient, responsive, courteous, professional, and respectful of your budget. I must have made a hundred revisions to the proofs of my wedding invitations and ceremony programs, and Kara never once got frustrated with me or failed to respond to my requests for revisions in a timely fashion. And she didn't bat an eye when I asked her to tie fussy pieces of lace trim tied on every single one of my invitations and every single one of my programs. I got so many compliments on my wedding invitations!

I recently worked with Kara to create the invitations and all of the paper products for my wedding and I cannot say enough good things about Kara and Magnificent Milestones. From the first day we walked in, Kara was so sweet and made the experience such a fun one.  I arrived with my mom and my sister and Kara immediately offered us champagne making everything seem like such a fun celebration! I think that picking out paper products can be very overwhelming but Kara truly made it enjoyable!
