    So I just sent out my invites! I was really excited about it and was waiting to hear that my guests had received them in the mail. They had my wedding invite, reception card, and rsvp card/envelope as well as my AHR invite & rsvp card/envelope AND luggage tags for any confirmed guests...

    Sooooo my aunt calls me last night (first one to contact me that she got my invite in the mail!) laughing... She says she had to call me and give me a little crap. I instantly got really nervous like I left the date or location off, or that I spelled a bunch of things wrong somehow..

    She had to pay the post office to get her invite
    Oh nooooo -- it was only 17 cents, but still! I instantly got really nervous that ALL my guests had this problem! I'm an idiot! I didn't think anything of it!

    Luckily, so far I haven't heard this from any other guests. I have even checked with a few cousins and my parents. The aunt that called just happens to be the only family with 4 confirmed guests. That extra luggage tag just happend to put the weight over the limit! I have talked to two families with 3 confirmed guests and they got there's fine.

    I still feel stupid! But at least (so far) only one family had this problem. I'm glad it was my care-free aunt that just gave me a call to laugh.

      HAHA that's pretty funny. At least she still got it. They could have returned it back to you insisting you add more postage.

        Too funny Stacey!!! I wouldn't have even thought of that either!!

        I wouldn't stress about it too much! If it's for the confirmed guests I'm sure they won't mind paying the extra 17cents to get your info! Maybe send out an email (or call) each of the confirmed guests to give them a heads up this could happen. Then playfully tell that that you'll "buy" them a drink at the resort! (only funny if you're going to an all inclusive!)

                  Lol if one is the only thing you left behind that was actually great! We do so many dumb things during wedding planning.. Our heads are just everywhere at the same time!

                    I wouldn't have thought about that either! I'm sure the guest didn't care too much...I think it's ridiculous that it costs more in the first place...it's not like it's more difficult for the post office to delive something that weighs 3 ounces more!

                      oh no hon!!! at least you know the ones with 3 or less are fine. checking postage is just something that NO ONE really thinks about, esp with everything else going on with wedding planning...don't beat yourself up :)
