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!

Best Way to Ask your Bridesmaids to be in your Wedding Party

Standing as a bridesmaid is a complete honor and privilege, but it’s an honor that comes with considerable commitments of time and money (the dress! the shoes! the showers! The bachelorette party!) That being said, you will want to ask your bridesmaids to be in your wedding in a way that is memorable, fun, and sincere. So, if she’s one of your favorite people, you love her dearly, and you’ve decided that you want her by your side on your big day, here are our recommendations for a memorable “proposal” of your own:

Put it in writing! A thoughtful, personalized letter to each of your bridesmaids will be well received, not to mention fun to write. In the note, you should mention a few of the qualities you admire about her, or reflect upon the friendship you share. When written on fine, heavy stationery and expressed from the heart, the letter will serve as a treasured memento of your relationship for years to come.

Remember that sentimental does not necessarily equal sappy or stuffy. Don’t be afraid to use your sense of humor! We love this lighthearted idea: Find the most hideous bridesmaid dress out there, take a photo of it, and adhere it to your stationery. Mail one of these custom “cards” to each your bridesmaids with this inscription” “I’ve already picked out your dress…so I’m hoping you’ll be my bridesmaid!” You’re sure to get a laugh!

Whether you go the traditional, creative, or humorous route, your bridesmaids will be excited and honored to have received your heart-felt, hand-written request.

Some options for delivery:

Send a bouquet of flowers and attach your note.
Wrap it in a vintage hatbox, cigar case, or any unique parcel.
Invite your maids to brunch or cocktails and hand them the letters in person.
Simply drop it in the mail!
