our wedding invitation stamps caused quite a stir (and i'm sure the post office just loved me). a number of people asked about them, and many wondered if they had been the only lucky ones to receive them. the story is that the stamps were originally a collection that belonged to my dad. for vintage stamps like these to be worth money, they typically need to still be attached in a large sheet. at some point in the past, my dad's stamps had been torn apart and after a little research we found that aside from a possible small exception here or there, they were basically only worth the postage printed on them. so in what i believe was a stroke of genius, i decided i would hold onto the stamps and use them to mail my wedding invitations one day.
and that day arrived. the postage was free, the envelopes were memorable, it sparked many a conversation and it brought a little part of my dad into our day. i say that's a win.
and just for fun...a little peek at our invitations
