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!

Ten Tips for a Flawless Wedding Thank You Note

Let’s start with the Do’s:

1. Get personal. Address the person by name and reference the specific gift he or she (or they) have given you.
2. Do be genuine. Don’t tell Aunt Sally that the glassware she gave you is so beautiful that it’s the first and last thing you look at everyday…unless, of course, that’s true!
3. Do be as prompt as possible. Ideally, you will send the thank you note the same day you received the gift.
4. Do mention how you will use the gift or cash gift in your new life together.
5. Do mention how much you appreciated their attendance at your wedding (or how much they were missed if they couldn’t attend).

Now on to the Don’ts:

6. Don’t use email.
7. Don’t mention how much the item costs or how much cash was included in the envelope.
8. Don’t prioritize thank yous for expensive gifts or for immediate friends and family. All gifts should be acknowledged with equal courtesy and enthusiasm.
9. Don’t send a generic thank you letter to everyone on your list. See Tip #1.
10. Don’t delay!
