OMG I'm an idiot...

Recommended Posts

Too funny, my mom and I were discussing this today while assembling my invites. I'm going to take them to the post office and weigh them to be sure.

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 sad.gif
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.
Ok that is too funny and you can certianly turn this around to be something totally funny for your guests. I would try to find out if that happen to a few of your guest and if there is a number of guests.
Have a signature drink made for your wedding (your WC would help you for sure) and have it served at your wedding. They could call it "Extra Postage" or "17 cents". It would be a hoot.... We did it our wedding and it was to poke fun at my brother in law... They just changed the name of one drink to "Mr Speedo". (long story but totally cracked everyone up).
Too funny girl!!!

I know the feeling. I have a friend who had her envelope weighed and it was not over the regular weight so we bought pretty stamps to match. When she went to mail them they wanted more stamps on it because of a tiny half pearl glued inside that made it 3mm thicker so it wasn't the average size. So we had to stick 3 ugly stamps per envelope. They also charge more for different shapes, including square.

Definitely have it weighed and measured before you buy stamps.

 

Remember that personalize stamps are for standard weight envelopes as well and you may need extra postage then to.

Just to make you feel better...P made our invitations, brought them to me multiple times to look at, and it wasn't until they were through the mail that I realized our last names are NO where on them. Hope everyone just thinks of the two of us as K and P! Luckily, he drew us in comic form, so hopefully we are somewhat recognizable...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
