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!

Wedding invitations used to be white or ecru. Period. The only question was whether you’d splurge on the envelope lining or decorative ribbon. How times have changed!

Looking for more ways to “modernize” your wedding invitations?

Consider using non-traditional, casual, or even slang invitation wording (who says you have to follow the norm?

On the actual invitations, print just your names and the date, along with the web address of your wedding website where people can find the details of your day.

Include a modern, artsy black and white photograph of the two of you. If you’re hesitant to smile for the camera, what about a picture of your entwined hands, a scenic shot of the place you were engaged, or your names written in the sand?

Use a unique wedding invitation shape if you think it’s no longer “hip to be square!”
