Question: How do I know which postage stamp I should put on my wedding invitations?
Answer: I know you will be super excited to get your wedding invitations in the mail and to start getting your responses but slow down for a moment. Take a sample invitation suite (invitation and all the enclosures) to the post office and have them weigh it so you know how much your postage stamp should be put on. Depending on the weigh will determine the stamp you will need. And don't forget you need USPS first class mail stamps for the response cards too! (This step will avoid your invitations being returned to you for insufficient postage.)
And while you are at the post office, please ask them about hand-cancelling. If they can do it for you it means your invitations will be stamped with a hand stamp which will (hopefully) prevent your beautiful invitations from going through the processing machines.
