    Am I the only one that wasn't aware that their will be a postage increase on May 12, 2008? I was very excited to get my invites mailed on Saturday and my response cards aren't due until June 10, 2008 but what I didn't realize is that I put 41 cent stamps on my response cards and the postage goes up on May 12? Now what do I do? I mailed all my invites?? Do I just hope everyone sends them back in 2 weeks? HELP!!

      Do they give you a grace period? I know i've sent things unknowingly after a postage increase and they went through.

        were they forever stamps? (the liberty bell ones) if so, those will be valid forever...

          There are no provisions for a grace period. If your letters went through, the people receiving the mail would have to pay the postage due.

            that sucks, the post office worker should have told you...

            If they weren't forever stamps, then there will be a postage due

              No, he didn't tell me and I even had them weighed to make sure they were only 41 cents and he asked if it was for a wedding. No, I thought I was being cute and put the heart ones on..not the forever stamps.

              yeah melanie is right, there is no grace period at all. do you have a wedding website that you could put up a little note about the rsvp postage?

                  Great idea Maura - This sort of makes me think we should get a website....
