I love stationary so I always notice things like that. We did a bunch of vintage stamps on our STDs and they were gorgeous. Only a few people commented on them though. Honestly I didn’t really expect people to notice or appreciate them, but I liked them so I didn’t really care 🙂

Did I care about the stamp as a bride? Totally.
Do I ever care about the stamps as a guest? Nope. 😉

Lol, I didn’t really care. I was more worried about having the correct amount of postage! When I got to the post office, they were out of wedding themed stamps so I got ones that say “LOVE.” If they were our of those, I probably would’ve gotten regular ones w/ the American flag on them.

I didn’t stress over it or order any special ones that cost extra but I did chose “pretty” ones from the post office. For our Save the Dates I needed 0.66 cent stamps and I picked the blue butterflies. I had some international ones though that needed $2 stamps and there really wasn’t much choice!
I’ll probably go with the wedding cake ones for our invites. Takes a minute to look at them and just pick which ones you want there. I too was more concerned with getting the amount of postage correct.

I bought photostamps and used a cute lovey picture of me and my then fiance (now DH!). 🙂 Lots of people commented on them and thought they were great. But do what YOU want. It’s your wedding, and no one will care as much as you.

I did not care about the stamp. Then it was time to ship out my invitations and the only thing available for the 86 cent stamp was a puffin. A PUFFIN.
I ended up sending them out with 2 46 cent stamps each. My invitations are far too nice to throw a puffin on them. Sorry puffins.

I sort of did. I didn’t want to order stamps (it stuck me as a bit vain, and pointless given some postmaster would be stamping over us anyway). I checked out the selection and came across stamps that a) were actually designed by a friend of ours who is invited to the wedding, and b) one of the stamps featured an image of our friend’s boat (we have a nautical theme, so having a boat on some stamps was nice).
I ended up using those on our reply cards. I had no choice in the invitation stamps as there was only one stamp available in that price point.

I just bought what was available..but secretly hoped they’d be pretty.
I lucked out and had pretty purple & yellow floral stamps (crocus maybe?). You’re in Canada, so you probably know what I mean.. hehe. It just was luck that they released their flower stamp collection that season.

@MsGinkgo: I was picky about my stamps lol. I had to order the stamps from USPS.com. I wanted something vintage and found some illustrated movie director stamps that worked perfect with our theme.

@MsGinkgo: Had I lived in the states I would probably had made more of an effort (not that it really matters, just because I’m a bit of a perfectionist). As it was now I wanted the magnolia stamps but our invitations were too heavy so I ended up with woodchucks… Which felt a little bit like someone was mocking me considering the war I battle with them out in our cottage! 🙂

I didn’t cae about the stamp honestly, I just wanted the invitations to be mailed 😉

I used the stamps from my mothers vintage stamp collection from when she was young. She realized that the stamps probably weren’t worth more than the actual value of the postage so she let me rummage through them to find ones I liked. I loved this because it meant FREE postage! And it looked pretty!

I want to order a couple rolls of the magnolias before they’re sold out but I’m afraid our invites will end up overweight (i know they won’t be oversize) so I’m afraid to order and then need to buy another batch of different ones!
