    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
          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...
