Haha. I sent DH to do this for our wedding invites. There is not a doubt in my mind that he was very nice when he went to the post office but he has STILL not let me live down the fact that I MADE him hand-cancel half of our invites! He was not happy, I guess I should be content with the fact that he did it though ๐Ÿ™‚

@KateByDesign: That’s so sweet. I was in Michael’s a couple weeks ago, and I saw a guy come in with a totally lost look on his face, walk over to the floral department and asked the person working there “so, this is the list my fiance has for her wedding flowers, can you help make one look pretty for her”. It was adorable.

What is hand cancel? It sounds like the wedding is off… but it can’t be that. ๐Ÿ™‚

@kperry3:It’s a way that the post office cancels the stamps so they can’t be re-used.  It’s usually done through a machine, but it can ruin the envelopes so if they hand cancel it then the envelopes still look pretty and the stamps are canceled.

@floridabride12: awwww! so sweet!

My FI would do it, if I asked. ๐Ÿ™‚  Provided he had time and didn’t have our two kids, lol.  He’s done LOTS of stuff for me and surprised me with lots of stuff, too!!!!  (I think it’s because he hopes if I’m crafting, he can play his guitar or cook without me trying to drag him off ๐Ÿ˜‰ *wink wink nudge nudge*)

I’ve sent him to Michaels, Wal-Mart, and other places with a list and if he has a question, he calls me or flat out says “you’ll have to go, because I don’t know what I’m looking for and I don’t want to get the wrong thing”!!!

I found this posted on the Wedding Bee 2 years ago and it means “that you (or a post office worker) hand stamps the ‘cancel’ onto the envelope. It’s usually done so the invitation doesn’t get stuck in the machine and ruined (it can also look nicer- none of those lines on them!). The cancel is the ink stamp that is stamped over the postage (after you mail something) and indicates that the stamp has been used. It is the round mark shown here:”
