I don’t know what will happen. We rushed to get our announcements out because of this. But we made sure we handed them to them at the post office on Saturday to make sure.

I hope they’ll be ok and get there!

@micahg:  did you use forever stamps?  I can’t find anything but forever stamps for normal 1st class postage anymore.  If they were just 44 cent stamps, they may get returned.  I’ve never heard of a grace period.

I totally forgot to check this before I bought our post card stamps. So.. looks like a second, 3c stamp is in the cards for us.

Stamps went up 1 cent… 1 cent! Which means, if you send out $200 invites and $200 STD’s you will be spending $4 more dollars. That is it. I understand it sucks to have to pay more for anything, especially stamps, but I don’t understand why everybody seems to be freaking out to me. I am not trying to be mean. I promise. I just don’t understand the major freak out that seems to be happening everywhere. Can somebody please explain it to me?

@Mrs Hedgehog:  lol, I’m not freaking out, I just did a total fail and bought the wrong stamp amount.

I buy forever stamps, but that’s not an option for postcard postage.

I don’t think their is a grace period for postage, but fingers crossed!  I made sure to mail mine out on Friday with my 44 cent stamps.

@Mrs Hedgehog: I don’t think it is necessiarly the cost and it doesn’t matter if you have forever stamps. But if you didn’t and got the old 44 cent stamps it can be a hassel to get the extra 1 cent stamp. Some brides work so hard on their invites, they want the stamps to look nice too.
