• Getting your order from here to there

    Ribbon tying, paper cutting, drilling holes, folding, gluing, assembling—this is what you would see if you walked into our office on any given day.

    Most clients, however, don’t ever step foot in our front door, located in little Elba, Alabama.  For some of you, you place an order, see a proof and have wedding stationery show up at your front door, ready to go for your big day. Others we have the pleasure of interacting with a little more.

    Regardless, I can say that Wiregrass Weddings feels so honored to be a part of such a special time in your lives. Whether we see your face outside of Facebook or not, we definitely don’t think of you as just another order behind the computer screen.

    That’s why today, I want to give you a little bit of insight into how a typical order translates into a stack of wedding programs (or invitations, save the dates, place cards, table numbers, thank you cards, menus, napkins or any other stationery).

    So here’s how it works:

    You can view all our wedding stationery on our website or you can call us and tell us what you are looking for.  If you don’t see something you want, chances are we can custom create it for you.  (How do you think the other programs got started?)

    After you place your order, we have an employee who carefully typesets everything, makes sure all the colors are right and sends you back a proof within one to two business days. We send you as many proofs as you need at no charge until its exactly right.

    Once the proof is just how you like it, that’s where the fun really begins.

    Your order is printed, then our team of assemblers get started on cutting, gluing, ribbon tying—whatever is needed to get the job done.  Many of our programs are die cut, meaning they have their own unique shape. Here’s one example.  Others have more standard shapes.  Some are booklets that need folding.  Some have ribbon.  And some have yet to be created because the concepts are still in your heads.

    We even have someone whose job is dedicated to hot cutting ribbon so it doesn’t fray.

    All of our stationery comes fully assembled, except our large fans with ribbon because those don’t ship well.  Once they are all ready, we check and recheck every order to make sure every detail is just right, and then we send them your way.

    We are lucky to have a dedicated staff working on each order in the process, so that when you click that order button, you can rest assured you are in good hands.
