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!

Compiling Your Wedding Invitations

There is a traditional way to stuff your wedding invitation envelope. Here's a guide to help you through the process:

  • 1. Place the wedding invitation (traditionally the largest and heaviest piece) at the bottom.
  •  

  • 2. Place the additional enclosures (reception cards, maps, accommodation cards) directly on top of the wedding invitation.
  •  

  • 3. Tuck the response card under the flap of its pre-addressed envelope, and place it on top of the other enclosures.
  •  

  • . Pick up the entire stack and slide it into the inner envelope. The wording on all the enclosures should be facing up and toward the opening of the envelope.
  •  

  • 5. Now slide the inner envelope into the outer envelope. The name of the guest(s) should face the back of the outer envelope, so when the outer envelope is opened the name of the guest(s) is the first thing that's seen.
