My awesome cousin made our invites for us, and we asked her to make postcard RSVP cards to save $$ and paper. But I was just poking around on the US Postal Service website and it looks like there’s only one postcard stamp released at a time? And it’s polar bear? If I’m wrong about this, hooray, let me know!
Anybody have any hot tips re: getting at least sorta-kinda wedding appropriate postcard stamps?

I know that they have a first class stamp that is a wedding stamp, but I don’t think they have a wedding postcard stamp. I looked also at that. We made RSVP postcards too! I just ended up getting the forever stamps, because you never know when they are going to up the price again for stamps. And I read somewhere that if you put a first class stamp on your postcard it gets to where it is going faster than a postcard stamp does. I know on some sites you can make your own stamps, this might be an option. Good luck!

I was just looking at this too. You can also consider doing the 27-cent fruit stamp with a penny stamp, maybe the Tiffany lamp?
You’ll save money by using the polar bear stamps, so it’s probably worth it even if you don’t like it. But if it bothers you, it will take a lot of stamps to add up to more than $10, so choose the ones you like even if you use a 42 or 44 cent stamp!

Look on usps.com, there are a few different options for postcard stamps. I used the tropical fruit stamp. Honestly though it is getting sent back to you so I dont think the stamp for that is as "important" as the stamp for the actual invitation.
I asked the post office about putting more postage on a package than needed to get it there faster/safer and they said it really doenst matter. Once it goes through processing, they will process it based on the size of the envelope/package, not the price of the stamp you put on it.

I used the fruit and the tiffany lamp for ours. They looked fine. It did take a bit more time applying 2 stamps, but it wasn’t a big deal.
If you absolutly hate the polar bears, I think making your own is a good option!
