BEAUTIFUL POSTAGE | Color- and Theme-Coordinated Stamps for Your Wedding Invitations!

When it comes to your wedding invitations, do you get excited when you think about choosing just the right stamp to complement the suite?  If you said yes, then we’re probably quite alike, because I LOVE THIS PART.  It’s SO meaningless – I mean, SO – but, for some reason, it’s super important to me that the stamp fits the aesthetic.  Think about it; you put all that effort into creating the perfect invitation suite for your wedding.  And while our nation’s flag is quite beautiful, does it really do your blind embossed, foil stamped, lavender, blue and deep purple 110 lb. card stock recycled wedding invitations justice?

I think not.  No disrespect, of course, to the flag.  When it comes to bill paying, it’s my go-to.

Now, as far as your invitations are concerned, here are some of my picks for that oh-so-perfect finishing touch…

Beginning with the girlie ones. :)

Okay, with those out of the way (lying- I love them), things are about to get interesting…

Here’s a suggestion: slap Greta Garbo on those envelopes if you want to make your mail truly first class.

Do you and your mate share a love of Little Shop of Horrors?  Or maybe you just really like carnivorous plants?  Well, either way, there’s a stamp for that.

You wouldn’t happen to be getting married on May 5, now would you?

Ballet enthusiast?  These are exquisite…

Laid-back wedding?  LOOOOVE the muppets?  A playful postage solution:

This is just cool.  A correlating wedding theme doesn’t readily come to mind, I just like James Dean.

LOVE the bold colors in this Sugar Ray Robinson stamp.  They really pack a punch!  BAHAHAHA I crack myself up.

Speaking of… are you a funny girl?  Wanna take it too far?  Here’s your stamp:


Believe it or not, it isn’t all that difficult to get exactly what you want… yes, even if what you want was discontinued long ago.  I found ALL of the above over at Champion Stamp Co., and there’s plenty more where that came from.  Of course, since most of them aren’t current, it means you’ll need to pair them up with varying amounts of additional postage.  No biggie; you can get what you need here.

Ooh, and here’s MY stamp!

Love all of this...

The Hostess With the Postage

If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly looking for perfect ways to embed your personalities and the special little details of your relationship (that “stuff” that adds up to make the two of you so freakin’ adorable and/or awesome!)  into the important moments and design points of your wedding.  Well, if you consider yourself the kind of bride who (a) would rather stay true to herself than adhere to any debilitating standard, and (b) has an undying passion for all things “The Simpsons”… well then LOOK NO FURTHER!


Still here?  Ok, so it looks like you could be into it…


… Now, if you’re still reading, then one of two things is going on here: you  L O V E  this idea, it’s that one perfect detail for which you’ve been searching, or… you just need a little eye candy to distract you from your work today.  Well, don’t we ALL!  If you’re the latter, then you might want to check out THIS colorific category – go ahead, I think this is what you’re craving.  It’s a wonderland of imagery that’ll make your brain all happy and peaceful.  (Well, it makes my brain feel that way, and I’m sensing you and I are at least a little alike.)

However, if you’re the former… and you feel that these stamps were practically made for you (just take a look again, to be sure, because it would be quite a unique move here, my friend)…


No, wait… I should show you this one:


Yeah, so that’s the most extreme image of this line.

If Homer didn’t make you flinch, then these specialty stamps may be just perfect for you and your hubby-to-be.  Sorry, I hope I wasn’t insulting you; I just always want to make sure that you lovely brides are happy with your choices… and that drive to make sure gets waaaay stronger when we’re considering something like cartoon character postage!!!  My ultimate goal is for you to be pleased as punch that you chose what you did… 30 years down the road.

Where to buy: the USPS online store

These stamps I can get behind, with some coaxing.  Just promise me one thing…


You won’t use matching envelopes.

Love all of this...
