It would be cheaper to use the wedding cakes then to go custom (if you like the wedding cakes).  And no one at the post office will complain about you putting additional postage on your invites (I refused to put the polar bears on my postcard save the dates, so I did the wedding bands).

I used the pansies for our Save-The-Date Cards because they matched, but we went custom (from Zazzle) for the invites. I couldn’t sacrifice cuteness and the selection was just awful!

I refused to spend the extra money on custom postage, I think its one of those things that “bride brain” tells us matters but in practice no one notices.

We went for the pansies. I doubt people pay that much attention to the stamps anyway unless it’s something really odd. I’d go with the bands or pansies over the polar bears.

What?  You don’t want Ronald Reagan’s head on every single invite you send out?  That’s just crazy talk!!

Haha!!

I put polar bears on my STD’s.  I just gave up and was too cheap to put pretty stamps on them

Polar Bears are my favorite animal but yeah don’t really go with a spring or summer wedding!

How much is it to get custom ones?

I too used the polar bears for my Save-The-Date Cards but luckily I don’t have to mail my invites until May after the new stamps come out and there are some nice floral options that will go with my rustic wedding. Otherwise I was resigned to using the polar bears, not worth the extra cost for something I will be the only one to notice!

i used these for my save the dates:

and i LOVE them.  we’re also doing postcard replies and our invites will be larger, so i haven’t thought about what to use for those yet.  but i’m cool with polar bears.

we’re using the shelter pet stamps. they’re perfect for us because we both dearly love our dog and cat, and part of the proceeds go to charity!

I did the cake ones. But mine needed the extra postage anyways. I needed extra postage to the ones I sent to Canada, so I just put extra cake one on. The post office told me that I didn’t need that much extra, but there was no way I was going to mix a cake stamp and another type of stamp!

I’m just going to go with something nice and neutral.. I dont think enough people care about stamps being wedding-ish and thats why the post office only has limited options
