Awwww – sorry you had to deal with this!  I’ve always heard it’s best to take one to the PO just to check the weight.

Don’t sweat what the stamps look like, most people probably won’t even notice (I know that isn’t what you want to hear, but it’s the truth).

I am glad you got it worked out; maybe it is a sign. My Fiance and I are also both Aries.

We sent my husband’s dad to the post office to weigh our final invite and so we bought the 60 cent stamp. It was nice of him to take care of that for us.  Cool

Thanks for the advice. I’ve bought a bunch of those pretty gold ring stamps. Now maybe I’ll save them for our thank yous.

I never thought of how much it would cost, that I couldn’t use a regular stamp. I don’t know why I thought this. I mean I am a secretary, I send out mail all the time that needs more postage. So I sent out my invites and realized… HOLY CRAP! I didn’t weigh them! So hoping for 3 days that they didn’t get returned was pure torture. Thankfully we had really, really light invites, and used forever/ first rate stamps. So they made it! But gosh, what a rookie mistake!!

Our was a weird rate for postage.  To top it all off, every post office within 50 miles had RUN OUT of the wedding stamps!!  I couldn’t believe it!!  Yeah, apparently we weren’t the only ones getting married in the summer, go figure.
