Hmm, well the price of stamps is going up in May. Maybe your guest got confused and thought they’d already gone up, and didn’t want to run the risk of the RSVP not making it to you. That’s all I can really think of!

That is bizarre … I agree with londonladybug — There has been some press recently about how the stamp price is going up so that could definitely be why … since it’s only one guest, I wouldn’t let it bother you too much.  Not sure how close you are with this particular guest but maybe you could be in touch with them or perhaps your parents or his parents (depending who is closest) to ask the guest why they did that!

How big is your RSVP?  What shape is it?

If it’s smaller than a certain size, they charge extra (I think because it’s too small for the sorting machines or something). If it’s square and not rectangular, they charge extra.

The minimum dimensions are 5"x3.5" smaller than that and they charge extra.

I found the info here:
