Testimonials
 

I was the type of bride who never really 'dreamed' of her wedding day - so I had NO IDEA which direction to go in and loved everything I saw - so I was overwhelmed at the thought of picking out an invitation design/theme for our wedding. The staff (owner, Nicole) at Platinum Affairs was SO KNOWLEDGEABLE and versed on their massive inventory of designers and styles that after a few basic questions, she was able to narrow down the selections (out of thousands) to a select few of which I was easily able to choose two to bring back to my groom for a final decision. Separately, PA was able to work within my very quick time line and deliver not only invitations, but matching programs and menu cards for out ceremony and reception! Great customer service and attention to detail. I highly recommend

Nicole and her staff were such a huge help in planning my wedding. I simply had to give her an idea of what I wanted and the girls would create one of a kind items. Every item in the store is embellised with rhinestones, broaches and ribbons and looks like it came out of a dream... I rented dozens of items from them for my Bridal Shower and wedding. They were such a pleasure to deal with!! Would recommend to any Brides!!

Everything was so professionally done and I would never be able to do this without them. The packaging was impeccable and people raved. Their shop has beautiful and unique items. Thank you again Nicole for everything


Nicole Malerba

I found Platinum Affairs after looking in their window one afternoon. After I walked in the first time, I was completely in love with everything I saw in the shop. I began working with the owner, Nicole Castillo. She helped guide me in customizing my invitation. Each time I had a question or an idea, Nicole talked with me, or met with me. She was completely hands-on, available, and she will not sell you something you do not need. She is very practical. Nicole took the time and reviewed every detail of our invitation, from the color of the ink, type of ink, font, color of paper, and paper quality. She had many options to choose from, as she works with all of the top invitation companies in the US. She also reviewed the wording and offered everything from traditional wording to a more informal version (we chose a combination of formal wording for our invitation and informal for our after party invitation). She is a wealth of knowledge! We selected an 8” round/circular ivory linen paper with and elegant font, in gold ink. This invitation was bejeweled with varying sized rhinestones, Swarovski pearls and adorned up the side with a two pearl “necklaces” that were knotted in the center, and in the center of the knot Nicole placed two rhinestone buttons. The invitation was placed inside of an ivory tufted satin box (also round), which resembled a tufted ottoman- it was so elegant! The satin box was mailed in a black circular mailer box. When Hurricane Irene tore through the east coast, it put one of the largest invitation companies out of business. Nicole had already placed our invitation order with this company. When she was alerted the company was out of business, she immediately (the same hour) was on the phone with other invitation companies who could match the invitation that we ordered with the first company. She worked diligently, and was able to replicate our invitation in its entirety. She was even able to keep our response date the same – she was incredible. The entire time she communicated with me, both through e-mail and telephone, with updates on the status of our order. Our invitations went out without a hitch and our guest’s reactions to our custom invitations were just incredible! Two days after the invitations went out I had family and friends calling me how exquisite our invitations were, and how they were unlike anything anyone had ever received! The invitations Nicole designed were perfect and elegant in every way! A completely unexpected result to receiving these beautiful invitations was how they instantly got our guests excited about attending our wedding. Nicole was always thorough, prompt with her deliveries, and best of all, the nicest and sweetest person I worked with while planning our wedding. She also has an amazing staff who are attuned to the needs of their clients and budget. There were nights where despite having to go through an itemized list to confirm delivery locations/etc., she made time to talk to me about last minute ideas. Over the 2 years we planned our wedding, she became a dear friend whose smile became a comfort to me and whose friendly talks eased my stress throughout the planning process. She is a hard worker, she will work hard for you, and I truly believe she loves what she does. She is more than organized, and her creativity and care of details will out-match any other stationer you will find in the city/Queens/Long Island. In Nicole’s care, you will have a wedding uniquely created for you

Nichole, Raquel and Staff have gone above and beyond to make my experience a memorable one. Not only would I continue to do business with them, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for any type of occasion. They are by appointment only but they do not give you a attitude or turn you away if you walk in off the street as I had experienced with other local vendors. They are experienced and fully knowledgeable with their products and pricing and never have to check with someone else or look at a price list for the answer. My save the dates are amazing along with the printing of the senders name and address on the envelopes that I had custom printed. The ink used for the senders name and address matched the ink on the save the dates perfectly. It was well worth the fee to have them printed then to have to do it myself. Having shopped around, I had an idea what I wanted and they made it come true for me. They did not push me into spending extra money that I didn�t need to spend. They have the perfect eye to coordinate any theme with any budget you may have. For example, I was discussing with the staff regarding table linen when I mentioned that my venue provided a basic linen. Platinum Affairs put my mind at ease stating that the day of my wedding , the tables will be set along with my center pieces that I would not have to go over budget with special linen that no one would really take any notice of. They suggested a chair wrap or tie that would draw attention of the people entering the room. My wedding date is near and I would not have chosen any other vender to make my day complete. If you don�t think that they can do something, just ask and I am sure they will make your dreams come true. By Kerri B Wedding Date 2/9/2013

Nicole & Staff really outdid themselves with my wedding and bridal shower. I used Platinum Affairs for every aspect of my wedding and I plan on using them in the future for all of my parties. They gave me undivided attention and answered all of my questions right away. I went into the store not knowing what I wanted and Nicole led me through the entire process. She went above and beyond and I am forever grateful. I have referred others and everyone is extremely impressed with the way they get treated my the staff and all the work they do to make your day special. I HIGHLY recommend Platinum Affairs to anybody looking for unique and high quality work. Thankyou for making my planning process so easy!
