Okay, so my invitations do require postage, but I don’t have to worry about buying it. Let me explain. My grandmother passed away last December, and when cleaning out her house, we found THOUSANDS of stamps (I’m not exaggerating, really) ranging from 6 cent Walt Disney stamps to the Liberty Bell forever stamps. My mom sent a bunch to me, and I have plenty of of stamps, enough for the STDs, invitations, RSVP cards, thank you cards, AND holiday cards for probably the next 5 years. Even though my grandmother is gone, I feel that she is still contributing to the wedding in some way.
Has anyone else had a similar situation, where things just happen to work out and you can remember someone at the same time?

Thats so cool!! Did she collect stamps…make sure your not using any that are worth money!? But what a way to have your g-ma a part of the whole thing!

no, I don’t think she collected stamps. We found them haphazardly around the place. Most are lick and stick, but there are a lot of whole sheets. I’m planning on using the ones with partial sheets and the newer ones before I break open the fullsheets. I may see if the full sheets are worth anything.

definitely check to see if any are collector – but sounds like she may have just collected them for the sake of having them (like old people with Sweet and Lows)
that’s such a cool story though. I’d save a stamped envelope for scrapbooking purposes to hang on to the memory of her “contribution”

I agree I’d check to see if any are collector’s. But hey cool find!
