We also carry all the necessities to assemble printed invitations such as twine and ribbon (color coordinated with our invitations). All of our accessories are handcrafted with a lot of love by Canadian artisans. Our men’s bow ties and ring pillows are a great way to inject a bit of color and personality into your wedding.
