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!

Traditional Wedding Invitation Wording

The information that should be included on your wedding invitation is: who, where, and when (day and time). How you say it is all up to you! There are some conventional ways to word invitations that will appeal to brides and grooms who cherish tradition. If you are having neither a traditional nor formal wedding, you are by no means required to use traditional invitation wording. No matter your personal style or the style of your event, you may want to take this opportunity to use your imagination and creativity!

In addition to the design and style of your invitations, customizing the wording allows you a unique opportunity to express your style and creativity while giving your guests a hint as to what your wedding will be like.
