Wedding Cake Postage StampJust a reminder that your wedding postage will cost slightly more if you are mailing your invitations after the first class postage increase on January 27.  The first class stamp will cost $.46 following the $.01 increase.  Be sure to take one of your ready-to-mail invitations to the Post Office to be sure you are affixing the correct postage for its size and weight.  Rates are increasing for additional ounces of weight as well.

If your response card happens to be a postcard, that stamp rate will also increase by $.01 bringing it to $.33.  Remember, response cards should include a return postage stamp as a convenience to your guests.

Wedding stamps typically come in numerous postage amounts to accommodate the various weights and sizes of invitations.  Many times you can also choose from different physical sizes to properly fit the size of your mailing envelopes. To be sure you purchase your wedding postage in the correct amount, take one of your ready-to-mail wedding invitations to be weighed at your local Post Office.  Always be sure to also find out if there are any postage increases scheduled for the near future, especially if purchasing your stamps ahead of time.  This information can also be very important when buying stamps for your rsvp cards since they won’t be mailed back until a later time.

The extra cost involved with special wedding stamps can be slightly decreased through quantity; the more postage sheets you purchase, the cheaper each sheet becomes.  Keep in mind that there may be pre and post-wedding stationery items that can also be mailed with your wedding postage.
