    @BeeLadylike:  Such a small detail, I say don’t fight it.  But Ishould declare that I’m a muscle car fan 😉

    I’ve never looked at a stamp in my life. I would let him have them,  to be honest, for the most part, the only people that pay attention to the stamps are the brides.

    @tksjewelry:  “the only people that pay attention to the stamps are the brides.”

    @BeeLadylike:  And brides will be the ones that figure “Awww this must be his personal touch.”

    @BeeLadylike:  I had planned to use FH’s favourite hockey team stamps for our RSVP cards but Canada post ruined that by not making them permanent (Forever) stamps and then jacking up the rate of stamps (by 22cents a piece) effective 2 weeks before our RSVP deadline. So I say go for it!!!

    Instead we have William and Kate wedding day stamps – the only permanent stamps I could find – the post office discontinued the Permanent stamps the same day they announced the rate hike.  (our invites are overweight so I had no choice on those stamps – they’re baby deer)

    I have a print of a 1967 Shelby GT500 on my wall, so obviously I’m going to say I love them!

    Only stamp collectors and car geeks will notice, and they’ll think it’s cool. Everyone else will just overlook it. Let your Fi have his fun.

    I think it would be nice to show something that is personal to him! My SO would love to use those stamps. (I’m also biased though, clearly!)

    @BeeLadylike:  Can you compromise and use them on the thank yous? I don’t blame you for not wanting to use them on your invitations.

    Side note: I actually have those stamps and use them for correspondence when it’s from me and SO. They are really fun and vibrant in person!

    I agree with the PP’s! The stamps are sweet and his close family and friends will get the reference.

    I have had a stamp battle on my hands too… Not with my FI, but because Australia Post insists on churning out hideous stamps of cows, sheep and sugar cane. Finally, they bought out native orchids! I bought all of my stamp requirements, plus some.

    Silly? Probably. I just couldn’t bare the thought of a sheep stamp going out on my engagement invites, or our wedding invites later down the track. FI totally agreed with me, thank heavens!
