Today I did a quick tally of the cost of the invitations and other paper goods to make sure we're staying within budget. Luckily we are, thanks to a budding designer building her wedding portfolio. I also went to the USPS web site to see what 44cent stamp options will be available after the rate-hike in May. Much to my dismay I found a horrifying selection of Simpson's stamps. Some quick research on Zazzle.com and Stamps.com revealed that custom stamps for the invitations and RSVP envelopes are within our budget. Less than a minute later I had this sample:
We'll wait until we have our final monogram from the designer before we order these (yes, I know the f is huge), but I think this design will tie all the elements of the invitations together nicely. I love this stuff!
