MNH....ugh im going thru kind of the same thing!! Every post office near me is out of pretty 20 cent stamps!! I know its not a big deal but I just want it to look nice and the 20 cent stamps are hideous! Its funny bc a fellow BDW member pointed out to me that "no once cares about the details of you wedding but you" but I disagree! lol
September 2010 Brides!

I took them yesterday to be mailed, and I was told that whoever had weighed and figured out the postage on Saturday was wrong and that I needed an extra 20cents on each one. My only option was to have UGLY NON-MATCHING 10 cent stamps added on. The ladies at the post office yesterday were so nice though and made three phone calls about whether I could get away without the extra postage (the extra postage had to do with the thickness of the envelope and not being able to go through one of the sorting machines). They felt so bad that someone had given me the wrong info that one of the postal workers took all of my invitations and said she would go sit and add on the extra stamps to all 80 of them so that I wouldn't have to do it. Not a total disaster, but I was a bit upset that I had spent time getting really nice stamps to go on there and I had to have random stamps added on too.
ooh AND ontop of that, when i was trying to buy the extra ones, the lady told me they were on backorder and it would take SEVERAL weeks WTF!!! i ended up ordering them online!

Now, I am using two 10 cent stamps with a 61 cent cake stamp in between (exact postage).
Remember that the post office is going to plaster the hideous postage paid marks across those very pretty stamps. So they are going to end up looking a hot mess anyways by the time they are received. How do I know this? Wellâ€¦two of mine were returned for â€œno such addressâ€ and I was pretty horrified at how the stamps looked on themâ€¦not to mention the tattered, dusty envelopes that were once so crisp-looking.

My fitting isn't until August so no pictures yet. Plus, I think my FI lurks on this site so I'm not sure if I would want him to see me in The Dress yet. I can, however, post a very picturesque description:
"Any bride will be resplendent in this exquisite re-embroidered Alencon lace on tulle gown. The sweetheart strapless bodice flows into an A-line skirt. Tiny pearls and crystals are lightly sprinkled over the entire gown and through the beautiful hem lace. In the back below the hip, the fabric gathers at the top of the chapel train, creating a beautiful effect. A separate matching veil may be ordered in any length to complement this gown. The perfect portrait of a bride! A-Line/Modified A-Line Silhouette.â€
