    I do notice but I think only because I’m planning my wedding…otherwise I don’t think I’d really look twice. Unless they were something out of the ordinary.

    Funny Story…I wanted to order really pretty stamps for mine, my mother insisted that NO ONE would even notice and to save my money.  So, I did.  My mother has severe OCD…lol  so I thought it would be funny to send her an invite with the stamp upside down, so I could catch her when she called and said “OMG, YOU PUT THE STAMPS UPSIDE DOWN!”  She never called, never noticed…even after I asked her what she thought of the stamps, she went and looked and still didn’t even notice….proved her point.  She was right…no one will notice…if she didn’t notice, no one will!   Save your money for something else!!

    If the stamps are personalized, I notice and comment (couples picture, etc)…otherwise…I don’t really pay it much attention one way or the other. To be honest…it’s usually my daughter that notices if something has a “cool” stamp on it. I am more interested in the inner contents myself.

    @Baileyh: lmao

    I’ll probably notice now that I’ve been to the post office 57320857 times but before my wedding? No way.

    I did get irrationally excited when I found out there were dolphin 64 ct stamps.

    I never noticed until now that I’m planning my own wedding and I’m in decision mode. While before it would’ve just gone in the trash, now I find myself contemplating, “Did they choose polar bears? Is that the only option? Will I have to have polar bears, too?”

    I don’t.  But then, paper products were really low on the priority list for my own wedding.

    We had our wedding at a contemporary art museum, and a modern art stamp series came out right before I sent out invites. I was psyched….but only one person mentioned anything. Now I think it’s a waste of energy unless the stamps are really awful.

    My FI really wanted to get Simpsons stamps for my invites but they stopped selling them.

    I’ll just stick on whatever gets them there…

    Yea. The occasional Bee blog posts about how annoying USPS is for not having perfectly coordinated stamps for invitations kinda rub me the wrong way. I just want to comment “People look at the envelope for .02 seconds before tossing it!!!!”

    I drove to 3 different post offices just to find the “perfect” stamps [even thought most people dont like them ; the gold wedding bands] because they really match the gold ink on invites and gold rubber stamping I had done on the envelopes.. but anyway I got home and was looking at an invite I received in the mail a few weeks ago and accidentally noticed that they had the same gold band stamps! Funny thing is I didnt notice that stamp and I’ve had the invite for weeks now…

    My MOH and I were just talking about how when she got married she drove all the way out to the Bridal Veil post office (in Oregon) so her invitations would have the Bridal Veil postmark… that not one wedding guest noticed.

    @UrbanAlaskan: Thats cute.

    I did find out a few weeks ago that you can send your invites from Harry Potter land in Universal and get a Hogwarts postmark. THAT I would have considered.
