It’s easy to feel lost when it comes time to assemble your wedding invitations!  They’re likely the first formal, printed stationery you’ve ever sent.  Assembling your invitations can be as easy as stacking the pieces and stuffing the envelope, or can involve a glue gun and bow-tying.  Blush Paper Co. does offer full and partial assembly services if any of this is more than you want to handle, but just in case you want to tackle assemble on your own, here’s how to assemble wedding invitations!

gather your supplies

Double-check that you have all the pieces of your invitation order, addressed envelopes, postage, envelope moistener, and any adhesives or supplies you need to assemble the invitation suite.

use clean hands

The smallest amount of dirt and oil from your hands will show up on paper, so make sure your hands are squeaky clean and dry before you begin!   Even nail polish can run off on cotton paper so be mindful of your manicure when handling your stationery.

postage

How much postage do you need?  The amount of postage required to mail your invitations will vary based upon weight.  Embellishments like wax seals, ribbon and thick postage will impact your postage rate.  If they make your envelopes thick, bumpy or too stiff, there’s a non-machinable charge.

You’ll want to take one fully assembled invitation, including the RSVP card and all enclosures and embellishments, to your local post office so they can weigh it and let you know the exact postage needed.

Be sure to buy postage for your RSVP card, too.  Standard first class postage is typically needed for your reply envelopes.

stacking the enclosures

Traditionally, the enclosures are stacked largest to smallest with the reply card always going on top regardless of its size.  The RSVP card is tucked into its envelope with the flap on top and the addressed side facing down.  All enclosure cards should be face up.

Stuffing the envelope

Using an inner envelope?  Place it inside the mailing envelope with the guest names facing the open side of the envelope.  Place your fully assembled invitation suite inside the inner envelope with the printed wording facing you.  Using a single envelope?  Place your fully assembled invitation suite inside the single envelope with the printed wording facing you.

sealing the envelope

Inner envelopes should be left unsealed and often don’t even have adhesive on the flap.  These are called “ungummed” envelopes because they don’t have gumming on them.

Use envelope moistener to activate the glue on the mailing envelope flap.

Press down firmly to seal or place the envelope under a heavy book. If your envelopes don’t want to stay closed, try using double-sided tape or a glue stick.

And now your invitations are assembled, stuffed, sealed, and ready to mail! Still have questions? Get in touch – I’m happy to share my advice!
