I just mailed out my invitations this morning and then it suddenly hit me. I 100% completely forgot to put postage on the response cards.
I feel like our guests are going to think I’m tacky, cheap or lazy or something.
Has anyone ever done this before? I am so upset with myself, I can’t believe I did this.

Oh no! That sucks. And I have no good ideas for a way to make it better 🙁 I’m sorry!

Aw, I am sorry that sucks 🙁 Hopefully none of the guests will notice too much. If anyone does say anything you can just explain that you forgot.

I forgot to do that too for about 75% of ours and had sealed them before I realized my mistake…and kind of wished I hadn’t noticed 😉 I had to go running around town looking for square brown envelopes to replace all the ones I had to tear open to put postage on the damn RSVPs, lol.
Don’t beat yourself up about it, everyone makes silly mistakes sometimes. I know that a few other bees who’ve forgotten the RSVP postage have given each guest a stamp along with their favor as a joke/apology, so if it’s going to keep you up nights, you could always do that.

I like @linguo42’s suggestion of giving a stamp as part of the favor. You could always send an email to/call as many people as possible and say you are sorry but wedding brain took over and you forgot! I doubt that many people will judge – if they ever planned a wedding they will understand that it is impossible to be perfect with every.single.detail.

Not everyone stamps their RSVPs. Your loved ones should not judge you.. even though you simply forgot to do it, people may think you were trying to save money, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Thank you all for your support and kind words! I was having my first real panic attack over this because the invites are already sealed and in the mail.
Thanks for the great suggestion @linguo42:! I just spoke to my mom who also suggested the same thing.
I still can’t believe I forgot since I had all the stamps right in front of me…

I have received many invitations with an rsvp that weren’t stamped. Some people just choose not to stamp them. Its only a few cents anyway

I love the idea of including a stamp in your wedding favors, especially if it will make you feel better! People will love the sentiment!

@pengoala: I’m totally loving this idea and so grateful someone suggested it.
Does anyone have any thoughts on a cute/rhyming thing I could say as an explanation to go along with the stamp?
