Is the stamp readable if you DON’T emboss over it?  If so, I would use that stamp, but not stamp it in the center.  Instead, I would stamp it at the top or in a corner, then use some other stamp from Michael’s or wherever (birds, hearts, a quote, thank you, whatever works for your wedding) to fill up the empty space.  I’m picturing your monogram stamp in the top left, and then another stamp in the bottom right corner, but depending on what other stamp you get, you can move them around till it looks good. 

I think the clear sticker paper does have the potential to look a little cheap.  If you wanted to use it, the big thing to make it not look cheap (in my opinion) is to hide the borders of the sticker.  Maybe cut a panel of fabric with a "window" for the sticker.  Or you could use tiny little twigs as a frame if you’re having a rustic theme.  Or little rosettes or other flowers glued around the borders.

I like the idea of just using the stamp you have & placing it aligned in the bottom right corner.  The rest can just stay plain & elegant.

Love your stamp!!!!!

I’m planning on doing the same project. I ordered a custom stamp from an etsy seller for only $13. If you are interested, I can post their shop link. My stamp is 2×3 inches – hopefully I won’t run into the same problem that you are having. eek! *crossing fingers*

I think placing your stamp in the lower right corner would look really cute! Add some ribbon detailing to the binding and maybe tie a bow that meets at the top left corner to ‘balance’ the page.

I love that!  If you had posted two options – this one and another with your names larger and in the center, I would still have chosen this one as my fav.  Sometimes "mistakes" aren’t mistakes at all!  I think this looks really elegant.

Love it! The gold looks so elegant. Ironically, I just received my custom stamp today and did a test on glossy paper. No problems 🙂
