I got custom stamps from PictureItPostage with our photo in Cabo (our wedding destination) in 2 versions for invite and rsvp envelopes.They were a really great size and were the cheapest I found (versus Snapfish, Zazzle, etc).
Plus, if I didn’t do a custom .88c stamp, I would have had to do two stamps on my main envelope, which I think looks a bit messy (personal opinion only).
Oddly, they were a HUGE hit with our guests! lol

I did semi-custom stamps. I just ordered them yesterday 🙂
Where it says Bride & Groom, it says our names and where it says Thank You it has September 18, 2010

i don’t care a ton about stamps so when I went to the post office today, I was willing to use whatever they had.
The selection was: wedding bands, abstract art, or The Simpsons!
My outer envelopes are orange, inner are yellow and colors are bright blue and orange. I just couldn’t pass up the super bright Simpsons stamps! It was the perfect fun touch : )

Honestly, I didn’t really care about the stamps… we just got the wedding bands one because they were available. Whatever got the invites to their destination was good enough for me! 🙂

Since our postage was $1.22 I asked the lady at USPS to print out a stamp for each envelope, and she did! (But then she put them on all crooked and haphazard. Oh well.)

I think Fiance and I had been engaged for maybe a week when I discovered the custom stamps you can get from Zazzle.com, and I’ve been sold ever since. I always knew we were going to do custom stamps. For a while I thought we’d get a photo of the two of us, primarily to titillate my grandmother, but we ended up deciding a simple dahlia bloom color-coordinated to the invitations was the best way to go. Excellent use of money in my opinion. (Easy for us to say; we only sent out 54 invites; though we did do custom postage for the RSVP envelopes as well.)

We did the King and Queen stamps too…we are doing a Las Vegas destination wedding, so there really wasn’t anything more perfect. 🙂
Disclaimer: I know no one really cares about the postage when they get something in the mail, so it just so happens that the king and queen one worked, otherwise I would have used to lame old bell ones for all I cared. 🙂

i really wanted a collage of vintage stamps like Chillmer shared above. i love the idea of a custom designed stamp from zazzle, too. i just can’t fit it into the budget, so it’s not happening. i’m working on my save the dates, and luckily i can use the new monarch butterfly stamp, which looks awesome on my square kraft envelopes! 🙂

Ours cost 81 cents to send so we ate the extra cost and put a king and queen on each. They were perfect for us cause our colors our orange/pink and the addresses were written in orange so the stamps matched perfectly! But, I agree with the above poster that pointed out that other people probably don’t even notice the stamps…and I made mine were lined up perfectly!

We used the wedding band stamps on our STDs and RSVP envelopes and we used the wedding cake stamps (2oz postage – 66 cent stamps I think) on the wedding invite suite.
I agree with alligatress that having multiple stamps on an envelope just looks messy to me (especially when they aren’t the same stamp). We had to put two cake stamps on one of the invites as it was going to Canada and needed a few extra cents postage. We insisted on having a matching cake stamp even though it was more postage than was actually required.

i thought about it and looked for pretty stamps, but i just couldn’t see spending extra money on stamps so i went with boring ones. a friend of mine had custom stamps and i never even got to see them b/c i never look at the envelopes, so i assumed it would be the same for ours.

We had purple invitations so we used the purple flower “Love” stamps for those, but we just used postcard stamps (polar bears) for our RSVP’s, since they were postcards!

I haven’t decided yet. I figure that at the very least, I’ll use the wedding bands though. It’s a nice touch.

We used the wedding cake stamps (.66 cents) on the outside and the wedding rings on the inner envelopes. I loved them!
