haha breeeathe. It’s ok if the cake isn’t YOUR cake or the rings aren’t YOUR rings. I’ve heard Zazzle is expensive. If you want one of the wedding themed stamps, go with the rings or cake. If Frank Sinatra fits your theme, that would be fun. Personally, I just used Forever stamps… The post office near me didn’t have wedding ones, and they were changing the price of stamps close to when my RSVPS were due, so I figured they would need forever stamps or else they might have had to pay extra postage. Yay for invitations being almost done!!!!!

Also remember that the majority of people will be throwing out the invitations most likely, so don’t fret!

Or how about the love stamps with the king and queen?  Those are cute.

Zazzle is totally insanely expensive. If you have it in the budget it’s nice, but.. eh. I like the forever stamps (although you might need two of them depending on how heavy your invitations are)… they don’t match anything wedding-related for almost anyone, but they say “FOREVER” on them! πŸ˜‰

I didn’t know about the Sinatra stamp… but now I’m going to have to find it since we’re probably doing our first dance to a Sinatra song. πŸ˜‰ No one will get it, though!

I agree with pp, most of the guests will just be tossing the envelopes anyway, i like the forever stamps because it will be noticed as a nice gesture (as the rings would and the cake).

We used the king & queen stamps for our invites. They are .44 though, so if your invitations are more, you may want to go with the rings, which are .66, I think? We chose The Simpsons stamps for our reply cards and they were a real hit with our guests. Don’t stress too much about it, a lot of people won’t even notice the stamps. πŸ™‚

Zazzle stamps are significantly more expensive.  I found the large stamp that you put a picture of yourself and your FI to be quite lovely (it looked like a pretty sticker on the front of the invitations).  But it is quite expensive, so if you don’t have room in your budget for it please feel free to skip it and use regular stamps.

That’s a detail only you will notice. The envelopes will likely be tossed shortly after they’re opened and no one will pay attention to the stamps unless they are a collector. Get whatever you can afford that is accessible.

We used the Post Office’s “Love” stamps.  I really wanted to do a Zazzle stamp with a little double heart design, (since we used it on our STD’s, Invitations, Programs, etc), but they were awfully pricey.  For the RSVPs we used Forever Stamps because, like JoesWifey, postage was due to go up around the time most people would be sending them back, (well, those that bothered to send them back, but that’s another topic!).
