    a little off topic, but Im curious...did you handwrite the people's names and addresses on your envelopes or did you print it on a computer? i was going to write out everyone's b/c i thought it was more thoughtful but i dont want it to not look formal enough?

      Hey Nicole, my suggestions is take your invitations already finished and sealed (take at least two) to the post office and have them weigh it and measure it and have them tell you what postage you need (for safe measure you can even go to a different post office and get a second opinion, honestly you shouldn't need one but with the nightmares people go through, why risk it). I actually met a guy tonight who went to the post office to buy 250 stamps for the invitations for him and his fiance and he was sitting next to us at dinner complaining that all their invitations were returned cause they had the wrong postage. Can you imagine getting 250 invitations back? I would die.
      Anyway, on another note I typed my addresses. I am crazy at everything being perfect and I don't like my own handwriting so I typed everything up. I say if you have great handwriting and don't mind writing them all out...go for it!!! I can't wait to post pics!

        soooo many issues with the post office!!!

        nicdeb...i was going to have my MOH do the calligraphy, but got scared that they wouldn't be straight, big enought, small enough, etc. so i played around with some fonts and printed them all out using my own home computer and they turned out really nice!

          That lady was extremely rude!

          I had my own drama with the post office. I took my invitations to be weighed, only to find out when I went back to mail them that they had told me the wrong amount of postage needed.

            Janine....not all USPS offices are like this one, I promise you!

            Now, let me preface this by saying that although my husband doesn't work as a clerk at the front counter, he has been a Postal Carrier for the past 5 years, and I can assure you that bullsh*t like this would NOT be tolerated at his office! I feel so awful for you that you've had such a terrible experience!

            And even though my man works for the post office, I too ordered my wedding stamps (the White Cake ones for the invites, the Gold ring ones for the rsvps) ONLINE! I just didn't want or need the hassle of wondering if my local office even had those designs, so I just went straight to the internet from the get-go and avoided the drama altogether!

            But anyway, I'm not trying to speak on behalf of the entire USPS, but please don't let that beotch color your entire opinion of the valuable service they provide as a whole!

            Just remember, although it's sad: rude, careless idiots and a-holes work EVERYWHERE!

              You have to be joking. I can't stand it when people don't want to do THEIR job!

                I bet us Canadian gals have a few Canada Post stories too! Trust me, it's not just the USPS! I think this problem is universal!

                  Sorry this happened to you. I have no patience for that kind of stuff. I would have probably reach over the counter and ... hahaa.
