    I just got the wedding ones. The white roses. I think they’re beautiful! I think doing little things like that is fun. I was super excited to buy $100.00 worth of stamps

    You don’t have to care, but as it was one of the first things I did/purchased for the wedding I didn’t want plain old stamps like I use every day so I splured on stamps that went with my Destination Wedding theme.  I’m sure no one cared or noticed though.  Lol.

    I didn’t really care, but also didn’t want the random flag one.  However when I went to have my invitations weighed to figure out exactly how much they would cost, it came to 85 cents so my options were to combine the wedding cake stamp with george washington’s face (seriously, no other 20 cent and 65 cent combos exist) or do two 45s.  Also my post office was out of the wedding rose 45s, so I had to get these turquoise flower ones that actually matched my invites pretty well, so I guess that sort of just worked itself out.  However the RSVPs had to have this stupid hawiian shirt that said “aloha” which I found kind of embarassing.

    @MlleBrielle:  I got the same ones!

    While I don’t think they are super important I wasn’t about to slap some random bright colored stamp onto my vintage/elegant invitations. I did put some thought into it.

    I got some pretty flower ones for weddings. They didn’t coordinate with our stationary, but they were wedding-themed. Whatever you do, make sure you take a completed invitation to the post office and have it sized and weighed before you choose and apply postage.

    @MrsDrRose612:  Why not check out Zazzle.com?  They have tons of options if you don’t mind spending the money.  They should have something more impressive than the white rose stamp.

    I didn’t care at all. I bought a bunch of forever stamps & gave them to my parents (who printed the invites for me, as my dad works for a printing company). When one got “returned to sender” (me), I noticed that there was a “cake” wedding stamp on it!! I guess my mom cared lol.

    @MlleBrielle:  I got the same ones too! I didn’t care to get any specially made or ordered, so I just stuck with what they had in the store.

    I did care,  I spent a lot of time stamping and addressing the envelopes of my invites and I thought using the wrong stamp would take away from all the work I put into the envelopees

    I wanted the wedding cakes for the invite and the wedding roses for the RSVPs…and that’s the extent that I cared. 🙂 Luckily, our invitation suite weighed the perfect amount to be able to use them.
