Customized wedding postage is a perfect way to tie your invitation together for a cohesive look.

I'm a sucker for good wedding paper.

Well. If we're being honest, I'm a sucker for good paper in general. Wrapping paper. Thank-you notes. Stationery. I've been known to spend a pretty penny on irresistible paper items that end up in the garbage. (I'm totally OK with it!)

When it comes to wedding invitations and save the dates, I'm a firm believer that the first piece of mail your guests receive sets the tone for your big day. Will it be relaxed and whimsical? Will it be formal and glitzy? Will it be a vintage affair with ice cream trucks and lawn games? Choosing the right paper reflects not only the important details of your day (you know – the who, what, when, where, why) but also the attire, as well as general expectations (6 p.m. ceremony means dinner will be served, whereas a ceremony beginning at 3 p.m. usually means hors devours). 

One way to add a "stamp" of personality to your invitations is by ordering customized postage. Websites like Wedding Paper Divas, Zazzle, and Ever Mine all offer customizable stamps for about the same price as what you'd pay at the Post Office. It's the first thing guests will notice as they pull your invite out of the mailbox.

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
