Anniversary Information

Wedding Anniversary Party Invitation – Information

Through good times and bad, through the ups and downs of life, you’ve made it!  It’s your milestone Wedding Anniversary!  There are so many details to tend to for the big celebration.  Please allow us to help you set the scene for your party, by putting together a beautiful party invitation.  Getting every detail on the Invitation just right is our business.  You tell us about your dream party — we’ll handle the rest.

The Basic Package of Custom Personalized Wedding Anniversary Invitations,  consist of personalized Invitation cards and envelopes printed with your return address. All Invitations can be customized for your party.  We will provide online proofs so that you can check your Invitations for spelling, accuracy and layout before we go to print.


When you place your order, please have the following information ready.

1. The style number of the card

2. Your choice of verse.  (Select from Invitation verses and Thank You Card verses below.)

3. Names of anniversary couple being honored.

4. Name of celebration venue.  If you’re celebrating a religious service, and there is a reception to follow at a different location from the house of worship, please have the complete address of each venue ready.

5. Date and time of your event.  If there is a religious service to be followed by a reception, please have starting times available for each event.  If the reception will be given at the house of worship, you may choose to state that the reception “follows immediately”.  If there will be a gathering at the end of the religious service, but before the reception, you may want to make this clear on the Invitation.

6. Names of hosts, if you choose to use them.

7. Your R.S.V.P. date and information.  If you are ordering response cards, we will print the addressee’s name on the label at no extra charge.  If the cards will be returned to someone other than yourself, please have that person’s name and address ready.  Please decide if you want the addressee’s name to be that of an individual or a family.  (If you are planning a surprise party, you’ll want to avoid having the replies returned to an address where the couple will be able to stumble upon them.)

If your caterer needs totals on various entrees in advance of the party, and you want to place the selection of entrees on your response card, please have the selection ready.  It’s best to use the caterer’s exact names for the entrees, so that your guests will have a good idea of what they’re ordering.  If there is a separate children’s menu that’s already been selected, you might want to make that clear.

8. The return address as it will appear on the back flap of the main envelope.

9. Your payment information.  Please have your credit card ready.

10. If you require a rush job, please let us know this up front.  Our standard turn around time is five business days from approval of on line proof till shipping from our NYC headquarters.  West Coast customers may choose from standard ground shipping, 3 day air, 2 day air, or overnight shipping.  We ship via USPS or Fedex, selecting the best method for each individual order.

11. If you’re selecting a font that’s different from what’s shown on our page, please have its name ready.  We can accommodate you where most standard fonts are concerned.  If we can’t get an exact match, we will show you close matches.  Please specify the color that you want your text to be.

12. If you are writing your own verse, please send it via e-mail.  This will eliminate any problems or typos that may arise while transcribing.  However, it’s not mandatory that you send it by e-mail.  If you prefer, you can telephone us and recite the verse for us to transcribe.

13. We can accommodate most foreign languages that are based on the Roman alphabet.  We can add text in Hebrew.  However, it will be the customer’s responsibility to proof read all foreign language text and make sure that it’s correct.  We can transcribe letters and words, but we are not fluent in foreign languages, so we must be sure that the customer can proof read the foreign language texts.

For non-Roman alphabets, if the customer can fax us the type-set text, or e-mail it as an attachment, chances are good that we can use it on the card as an image.  For customers requiring Hebrew, we prefer to have an image of the printed Hebrew words (not handwritten).  At very least we’d need a transliteration of the letters.  For example: Resh Tav Samech Aleph.

There will be a surcharge for any long verse written in any foreign language using a non-Roman alphabet.

14. Finally, and we can’t say this often enough:

If you come to us at the last minute, with less than a month remaining to your affair, we will do whatever we can to help you.  We do accept rush jobs (except in December) at an additional fee, and you can opt for Fedex overnight shipping.  However, it is always best to allow yourself breathing room when ordering invitations.  It will reduce the wear and tear on the host, and help you to better enjoy the anticipation of your party, if the invitations are in your hands eight weeks before the party date.

We find that the best rule of thumb is to have the invitations in hand eight weeks before the party is scheduled, and in the mail six to eight weeks before the reception.  Two weeks before the party, you should have received all of the R.S.V.P. cards or calls.  If you stick to that guideline, it will ease your journey through your preparations for your big event.

If your caterer has given you a deadline for head count, make your R.S.V.P. deadline a few days, or even a week before the caterer’s deadline.  This will give you a chance to call stragglers who are late in returning their replies.
