    I would do a tester and mail one to yourself or your parents just to be sure!

    If an envelope doesn’t have enough postage, doesn’t the person on the receiving end get charged? I had that happen once, a friend sent me a bulky card and I “owed” the post office the difference. Maybe that was completely random?

    You don’t have to use stamps if your post office will meter it for you.

    If your invites are complete I would do a test run – – The invites that might get returned are the ones going the distance…If you send one to yourself you will probably receive it w/ no problems…If you have one to send to a guest 1200 miles away it will probably get returned to you….

    i think it would be okay, but i had to pay 81cents an envelope i’m pretty sure… so ass up how much it would cost for the extra 20 cents, and if it’s not worth the hastle, just have them metered at the post office

    I would take it to another post office to see what they say. If you don’t want to do that, I would just go with what your Fiance says and put the extra postage on it. I would hate for my guests to have to pay additional postage and/or have the invitation returned for insufficient postage.

    I’d just do two 44 cent stamps – the last thing you want to do is spend money and time on beautiful invitations to not have them reach their destination.

    I had the same issue and ened up using two $.44 cent stamps.  After many conversations with several post offices, the concensus was that my weight was $.61 cents, but we needed to add the additional $.20 cent surcharge for the slight bump.  I ended up using the king and queen stamps and it looked really cute since i used one of each stamp.  I would go with two stamps and be safe…nothing worse than having all your invites come back.

    I would use two 44 cent stamps to be on the safe side.  Best of luck!
