I am getting so anxious to get our invitations in the mail! Our wedding is in exactly 2 months and I had planned to mail them out last week. I found out they will need 3 stamps instead of just the 2 (king and queen of hearts) stamps I had planned on b/c of the envelope size and shape.
I panicked, but did find a cute 3rd stamp to go with the king and queen and ordered them last week from the USPS website, but they still aren’t here and I haven’t even gotten the email that they’ve been shipped yet (last time I ordered stamps online, I got the shipping notification email 2 days after my order). It’s been 5 days and they were supposed to arrive within 3-5 days.
I already feel like I am sending these out late!
Should I just use ugly stamps that I already have and get them out or wait a few more days and hope my cute stamps arrive this week?

i say go ‘head and wait to see if they come this week…..i wanted to get mine out at the 8 week marker but kept running into road blocks, just sent them out this past weekend finally…..i think 6 weeks is the latest i would’ve sent them out….

ok that makes me feel better! I did send Save the Dates back in November so most of our guests already know when the wedding is.
I think they are new stamps that were just issued and that’s why they are taking longer. I didn’t realize that when I ordered them!

I’m glad I waited 2 more days for my cute Garden of Love stamps! I ran to the mailbox today to get them and put them on my envelopes immediately.
Invitations are now in the mail and I can stop worrying about them. Yay!!

Those Garden of Love stamps are super cute!! I’m glad you waited because they really look good with the king and queens. What denomination are they?
