I ordered samples on Feb 13th. It's now Feb 28th and I still haven't received them. It is frustrating because I was hoping to get them much sooner so I could start making the plans for my invitations. It really shouldn't take 15 days. I still don't know if they will ever arrive. I really don't know how many stars to put for all the topics because except for responsiveness.
The website to customize your product from templates is infuriating. The amount of customization is limited and as others have said, not well explained. There is an option to pay an extra $50 for guest addressing, which doesn't seem that bad. However, you have to enter each address individually on their unique website. And by enter individually, I mean create a household, enter the address, save the list, repeat. My guest list was not that large, but it was still a very tedious process. The end product is all right and the prices are competitive, but the process to get there has been a headache.
I received my invitations about 1.5 weeks ago. The invitations themselves are beautiful but about 15 of them arrived with print streaks on them. I called, spoke with a rep (who wasn't super pleasant might I add) and they mailed 15 new invitations pretty fast. Well, I got the 2nd batch and there was gold ink on them which I'm assuming transferred from the writing on the inside plus there were black ink/dirt marks on the floral design. I honestly don't feel like trying for a 3rd batch so I figured I'd just write a review to give future brides a warning. I'm going to get the invitations I still need from another company :( Like others have said, you must enter guest addressing manually which is time consuming if you plan on having a large party and be mindful of holidays, they might take extended time off which i learned the hard way.
I specifically was supported by Sandra for purchasing my wedding invitations. She was absolutely amazing. They sent me a free sample of the invitation I wanted to purchase and Sandra was incredibly responsive and supportive in helping us customize an invitation that we loved. Our invitation came out exactly the way we wanted it and I would absolutely return to their website for any future invitation needs I might have. Thank you so so much for all your support!
Oh my gosh--I'm so pleased!! We ordered two samples and they arrived within a few days. The samples were simply beautiful!! In addition, they were so elegant, we're going to have a hard time deciding between the two! We received another sample from another vendor and the quality was no where near the quality of these. We will definitely be ordering invitations from you in the very near future. Can't wait to work with you!! Thank you!!
I'm so glad you were pleased with the samples! We look forward to working with you on your big day! :)

The American Wedding
Let me start off by saying the invitations came out really nice, we have been getting compliments about how pretty they are. With that being said, the process to get there was not easy. Making changes is difficult, the spacing isn't explained that much, which led to aggravation and many changes. Also, if you plan to have them address your invites, know that there isn't an upload option, you have to manually enter the addresses in one by one, not ideal when you have 200 invites....They are a professional company and willing to help, I just didn't expect it to be as much as work as it was.
We were quite pleased with the entire invitation selection and ordering process through The American Wedding. They had a lot of options for designs, an impressive amount of customization available (even down to the amount of spacing between lines, which could be adjusted based on what font you selected) that allowed for a really professional and personal final product. We loved being able to order samples of our favorite papers and designs; there's nothing like getting the real feel of it in your hands! And the price was very reasonable, which meant we felt we could spring for the lined inner envelopes for that touch of extra 'zing!' The sales rep who reached out to us was extremely helpful, and the printing and delivery quite fast.
So wedding planning is overwhelming, and when it came down to invitations I was extremely overwhelmed. Everything I wanted I was quoted $1000+ dollars for (about 125 invitations, RSVP cards w/ envelops, and reception/accommodation cards).
I played around with multiple websites but kept getting frustrated. My mom found The American Wedding and noticed they had a bunch of invitations on sale for 50% off, for that week only. I found a style that I liked (thermography printing), and I get got an envelop with a liner, my insert cards, my RSVP envelops pre-addressed, and all of the main envelopes addressed. With proofing, assembly, and insurance, this came out about $700 ... BEFORE THE 50% off.
I really was afraid it was too good to be true and that they would be cheap when they arrived. Everything arrived today, neatly organized in a box, and they are BEAUTIFUL! I couldn't be happier, and neither could my wedding budget.
I am writing this review to brides who also cannot justify spending another $1000+ on invitations... YOU DON'T HAVE TO.
Our invites were beautiful, exactly what we wanted, and the process was smooth. We decided to make a few changes to our first proof and they were very accommodating, getting it done without any issues. We even got lucky and the invitations we wanted became part of their weekly Flash 50% Off Sale so we jumped at it before we lost our chance to get an amazing deal on our invitations! This allowed us to add all the "bells and whistles" that we wanted without going above our budget. The quality was great and they arrived very quickly. Their selection was also much more varied than all the standard online invitation websites. In my opinion those other websites offered invitations that were too informal, overpriced, and way too contemporary, nothing classic and timeless like The American Wedding's offerings. I definitely recommend them and will be looking to purchase my thank you cards through them as well.
I originally found a design I liked on their sister site: MyGatsby.com back in 2015. I couldn't find it early in 2016 when I was looking to start the process of designing and ordering invitations. I contacted their customer service and they informed me that it had been removed while they were working on their sites. They were nice enough to put it on theamericanwedding.com so I could start the process. I spent many days changing the design, the wording, the colors until I found the perfect combination. I contacted their customer service via chat plenty of times, asking general questions. I love sites that have the chat feature so you get a response quickly instead of waiting for an email. I ended up emailing back and forth with their rep, Alexis. She helped me with so much and was always very nice despite there being so many emails from me! :) She paid close attention to details, and when we noticed a coding error causing a color to show up in the design process but not on the invitation itself, Alexis assured me that she would take care of my order and make sure that she viewed all the pieces before it would be shipped out so it would only be my wedding colors. I have already suggested this site to my engaged friends, and will continue to do so. I got a great deal on my order as well, since as every bride knows, a great deal is always appreciated! (Items ordered: 2-layer invitation, RSVP card, Reception card, thank you cards, extra envelopes for invitations, plus included envelopes for invitations, RSVP, and thank you cards.)
Hi Stephanie! I'm so happy to hear you had a great experience with our customer service. Making sure our clients are happy is our number one priority! Thanks again and Congratulations on your wedding!
Got our save the dates quickly and they looked amazing. We also got a gift card for the cost of the save the dates to put towards our invitations. Will definitely be getting our invitations through them as well.
is company went way above & beyond to help me with wedding invitations as well as programs! We even rain into a mistake we made 3 days before the wedding and they reprinted them right away & we got them before the big day! Will definitely use them again when our other daughter gets married! They are amazing!
I initially came across these invites when searching for some on Etsy. I decided to use them for our wedding. I LOVED the invites. We received quite a few compliments on them. My mother wanted to make some adjustments after we placed our order and they were easy to work with an happily accommodated. Not to mention, the price was better than anywhere else I found, especially for the quality. I'd definitely recommend! -Shelby
They totally botched our invitations and communicated they wouldn't redo. The typeset on the invitation was different than the typeset on the envelope. It was aweful. We ended up having the envelopes printed locally as we were in a time crunch to send out. Finally, at the beginning of the next week my daughter calls them and they communicated they would have been glad to rush and redo. This was NOT communicated 3 days prior. Invites were beautiful, envelopes wrong, botched, commas in wrong places. Note to self; order in plenty of time in the event you need to correct.
They had the exact design I was looking for!
I wish I could give them negative reviews. This company is HORRIBLE! First, the invitations arrived dirty. Then, a week later they sent a clean ones but instead of sending 75 (as we ordered and paid for) they sent us only 52. The customer service is awful. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY for your invitations. THEY ARE NOT RELIABLE.
They were great! I needed them to email me back a list of the invites that I had sent, a request they said they had never had before, but they figured it out and sent it the next day! Very responsive.
I ordered a custom version of their classic invitation suite (just one enclosure card). The owner was wonderful to work with - we went back and forth 3 or 4 times on the proofs (I changed the font, then my parents couldn't make up their minds what titles they wanted to use) and she made every correction I asked for! Responses were fast if on a weekday, but not over weekends, so brides should figure that in. The invitations were beautiful! The RSVP and enclosure cards were on thinner cardstock than the invitation itself, but still good quality - that was fine with me because it kept the whole thing under 1oz so it was cheaper to mail. Some trimming and assembly required.
Overall, compared to sites selling similar invitation suites, I probably saved 50-60% by going with The American Wedding. Couldn't be happier!
I ordered my wedding invitations from their website, they were amazing! I was nervous about how they would look once I got them but I couldn't have been more pleased!
Our invitations arrived yesterday and are perfect and beautiful! Really great value also, I got very nice invites on high quality paper with thermographic (raised ink) printing for about half of what other places wanted for so-so paper and laser printing. With a coupon the company sent me I was even able to get the lined inner envelopes and still stay well under my tiny ($100!) invite budget. Highly recommend!
So glad you had such a wonderful experience! And Congrats on your upcoming wedding!
I absolutely loved working with them! I had a 100 questions because I was nervous to order online without feeling or seeing the quality. Once I called customer service they suggested I order a free sample before I take the plunge! The paper was high quality and was exactly what I was looking for! They were responsive and the pricing was reasonable!
The American Wedding offers a great variety of wedding invitations, at a really reasonable price. So many people I know have gone with Wedding Paper Divas, but my husband and I actually preferred the selection that The American Wedding provided. They have plenty of coupons and their prices on fancier styles, such as the thermography we went with, are very reasonable compared to many other stores and websites.
We had one hiccup with our order. The spacing was really off in between our names and a few other lines, even though we paid $20.00 for a digital proof and everything looked perfect on that. It was frustrating because we had dedicated hours to making sure the spacing looked right! Fortunately, we also paid $20.00 for insurance, so we called their customer service right away. We spoke with the very pleasant Alexis R. and she quickly realized our issue and got a replacement order in motion. The replacements took over a week to arrive, which did mess with our timeline for when we had wanted the invites sent out. However, they did look perfect at that point, so we were more or less able to take the situation in stride.
Despite the hiccup, we received tons of compliments on our invitations, so overall we were happy! I definitely recommend going with the insurance no matter what.
Thank you Emily for the shout out! I'm glad that everything worked out and that Alexis was able to help you with the spacing issue. Thanks so much for recommending us and I know you will have a wonderful wedding!
This was a great option for us and everything turned out great.
My fiancé and I ordered our invitations for our wedding from The American Wedding. We spent so much time looking at different invitations vendors. The American Wedding provided us with exactly what we were looking for at a good quality and good price. I did have to do some work with the invitations cutting the ribbons that were a little long, but it was worth it to me because we saved in comparison to other vendors. They had a great selection of invitations and I would definitely recommend this company for invitations to other brides.
