- Wedding: May 2013
Ok Bees….I am not one to rant, both my family and FI family has often told me I have the patience of a saint! We have been engaged 1 year on Valentine’s Day and although everything has been chaotic I have managed to not lose my cool, until today that is….on what you ask? POSTAGE!!!
Oh, I wish I was joking! FI took our finished invitations to the post office to have them weighted because I knew we would need extra postage because I used a wax seal. WELL….we have to get the .66 cent stamp, no biggie, I expected that. What I did not expect was for them to tell me that my invitations are “Too Stiff” and I have to pay an extra .22 cents for a special stamp because they wont flex through the machine. Ok, no big deal, it is .22 cents but here Bees, is where I lose it. The stamp I HAVE to use is a big old George Washington face. I mean, we are talking huge and ugly! I spent a months picking out the perfect shade for our pocket folds, almost a full month putting them together and sealing them with a wax seal, and NOW I have to ruin my beautiful invitation with Mr. Washington’s ugly mug??? It is going to look horrible, that ugly stamp is going to be next to the beautiful white wedding cake stamp and look horrible!!!
I know this is probably the silliest thing to get upset over, but come on! I spent so much energy and time on them.
Please tell me there is another option, or that I am freaking out about something stupid and no one will notice…because right now, Miss Cool as a cucumber is about to freak out on USPS!!!!
