I don’t think anyone would care. I wouldn’t… I’m not doing mailed RSVPs so I can’t give you any “this is what I’m doing advice”.

I dont think it’s a big deal… but I used the generic white rose stamp. I noticed my post office had other spring flowers available as well when I was there last week. If you’re worried you could go that route!

i wouldn’t care at all.  Most of the invites i’ve received have had boring stamps on both envelopes.  i really don’t understand why the industry makes us stress over such silly things!

There is not a proper way to do this from an etiquette standpoint, since response cards and reply envelopes are not included in traditional etiquette.  However, from a graphic design standpoint, it would be best if the stamp on the reply envelope matched or at least coordinated with the stamps on the outer envelope.

Both and emailing envelope and RSvp envelopes needed 66¢ sttoms and they gave me ones with butterflies on them. I honestly didn’t care what the stamp looked like! Lol it did however kinda end up matching our colors though!

I really don’t think any one is going to pick apart the look of your stamp!

Think back to the wedding invitations you’ve gotten in the past. What stamps were on them?

Exactly. No one pays attention to the stamp on the envelope (either one!).

I used the regular flag stamps with “justice” “equality” “freedom” etc (lol) on both outer and inner envelopes. I paid special attention to put the stamps with “equality” on my racist uncle’s invitation, though. Lol. But otherwise, yeah, if the first place you go to buy stamps doesn’t have anything but the flags, just get flags.

use whatever stamp you like,

etiqutte wise, as long as you provide a stamp on the RSVP card you are fine.

@Brielle:  Agreed! Thankfully, I fell in love with some new stamps (I really hate the USPS wedding-themed ones) and bought enough to cover the invites and RSVPs.

I put a “Wedding Rose” stamp on the outside of the envelope. It cost the same amount of money that the stamps on the outside did, so I just used it for both.

I did use nice wedding-y stamps, but only because it wasn’t any extra work for me. I don’t think most people even notice.

I really don’t think most people notice stamps, but I totally understand wanting to like the stamps you use. I’ve been using the “Wedding Roses” stamps for wedding-related mail — they’re Forever stamps, so they cost the same as the standard flags. My invites aren’t done yet, so I may need a special more expensive stamp for those, but the Wedding Roses should work for the RSVP envelopes.

@PeachSnapple:  I used the wedding rose stamp because we ordered all of our stamps at once and it looked nice with our light blue envelopes. I don’t think people will really care though.
