Hey girls,

 

I took my invites (square and heavy) to the post office and they said it was going to be $0.96 to send each one out.

 

I'm fine with that, but there are no stamps for that amount and the combo of stamps to reach $0.96 are not pretty unless I go over by $0.15 - $0.20 for each invite.

 

Has anyone found custom stamps that you can put whatever amount you want to on them?

 

My mom and I spent so much time putting the darn things together I don't want to ruin the look with a random stamp of the rockies and two turquoise necklace stamps.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can try Zazzel.com and you can customized your own stamps for the right postage! THey are little more expensive but if you are going for something to match this is probably the best way!

I called Zazzle.com and they said they couldn't change the amount/value on the stamp.....maybe they used to be able to?

 

Thanks girls for your help!

It may not look pretty but if you cannot find custom stamps, have the post office put postage on them for you. And really its what's inside the envelope that matters.

 

Hope you find something on zazzle or elsewhere online.

I sort of had a similar problem when I sent mine...they weren't square but a bit on the heavy side.

 

I didnt have the custom stamps (from zazzle) and I agree that the combo they wanted to give me just totally clashed with my pretty invites!

 

Right now they have those heart wedding stamps...I ended up putting one of each of the below (which put me over the amount that I needed by like $0.15) but in the end I was ok with it

Product: Wedding Hearts (2 oz)

Product: Wedding Hearts (1 oz)

 

these didn't completley match the way i wanted them to on my envelopes but I just let it go...at least the wedding hearts were better than like the liberty bell ones they tried to give me!

Thanks for your help ladies! I went with two of the 2oz or $0.59 stamps. Like you mentioned they don't match perfect, but it's better than the Liberty Bell or the Rockies. The envelope gets thrown away right away.

Invites in the mail on Monday! YAHOO1

If it comes to $0.96, there are $1 stamps you can buy which means you would only go over by 4 cents, but you only have to put on 1 stamp for each envelope. FH has a business and before we bought an envelope meter, we had to hand stamp everything so I know the $1 stamps exists. You can even order them online directly from the USPS website if your local post office doesn't have them.

 

Another thing you can consider is to find a place that meters envelopes and have them meter it for you. Then you just have the meter stamp on the envelope. Hope that helps.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
