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!

Special Circumstance > The Guest List Battle

Q. Making our final guest list has become a battlefield. My parents, my fiancés parents, and even extended family members all think they get a say. WHERE do we draw the line?

A. This is a situation that requires you to take action…yesterday. You need to get in control of the situation so your wedding doesn’t become a budget-blower or, more importantly, doesn’t become something you don’t want it to be. Of course you will want to use as much patience as possible so as not to hurt the feelings (or egos) of those closest to you. Here are some tips:

(1) Decide who should have a say. Only you and your fiancé can truly make this decision. And, you may decide that it’s simply up to the two of you!
(2) Ask for a “wish guest list” from everyone who you’ve decided should have a say (your particular family situation will dictate just who that is).
(3) Request that the “wish lists” are made out in order of importance.
(4) From there, you and your fiancé will simply create a final list based on your budget and your wishes.
(5) Remember that while this seems like a very intense, very sticky situation, it will all soon blow over. Your goal is to look back and remember that fun you had planning your wedding, not the logistical nightmare that it became. Remind your families of this fact and they will (hopefully) get the hint.
