What is Assembly?

We offer assembly of most invitations that are layered or that have embellishments (for example the Versailles or Victoria Damask invitations). Assembly means that we will adhere each layer of the invitation together or tie any bows or ribbons. If you order a Pocket or Bloom, all of your layers will be mounted directly onto the Pocket or Bloom, unless otherwise specified. If you order an invitation with ribbon, your ribbon will be cut and attached to your invitation. Assembly does not include inserting your invitation and accessory cards directly into your envelopes.

We do not assemble any accessories such as seals, etc. If you are assembling yourself, we recommend a strong, thin double sided adhesive to attach the different layers of the invitations. Please DO NOT use any type of "wet" glue, since you don't want the cardstocks getting damp or wet which can lead to wrinkling and/or buckling, and in some cases we have found with rubber-cement glue, the actual letters falling off your invitation!

Wrapped With Love Wedding Invitations

Product Review (submitted on May 7, 2013):
These invitations were beautiful, however please beware that you will be glue dotting the card to the three-fold invitation and the ribbon literally comes shipped to you on the spool. You have to measure it out and tie your own bows, which can be pretty time-consuming. Unless you know someone that is really crafty and precise, this can become a problem. I think The American Wedding needs to give a better description of the assembly that is required if you don't pay the $150 assembly fee.
I wish I had a better experience with The American Wedding, since the invitations are beautiful.
