Went to the post office yesterday to mail something; bought up a stack of Forever stamps for use on the RSVP cards, since postage goes up next Monday. I weighed a sample invitation and it was .1 over 1 oz, how is that for Murphy's Law? So now I'm sitting here thinking about what stamps we ARE going to use and feeling like maybe my discarded-as-too-trendy-and-time-consuming idea of using vintage stamps might be the freaking way to go after all.
I like the new 44 cent Love stamps but they are only 44 cents and not 61. So to use these I would need to add various configurations of the following, which are all very nice, but I don't know how WELL they go with the king and queen of hearts.
The 17 cent stamp is so blah, I don't even want to look at it.
Why not the 61 cent wedding stamp, you may ask? Because, look:
I think I'd rather use the other 61 cent stamp, even though I don't know who Richard Wright is.
As a final option, there's design-your-own-postage or pay 1 cent per invite extra (so, like, $1.50 total) for the 62 cent stamp
which is bland but at least not horrifying like that cake. Of course, you're talking to someone who stood in a crazy line so as to avoid paying 2 cents extra per stamp come May 11, so I don't know if either of those options are viable.
I looked up Richard Wright and he was a writer, which might fit in well with our secret theme. Hmm.
I'm sure you all can't believe I just wrote a post about stamps. I write about this stuff here to save Chris's ears from bleeding. Trust me, you have no idea how much I actually hold myself back. My sister could tell you.
