Just take my friends Nicole and Stephen. Their invite, in a word: beautiful.
You open the heavy envelope, and there, inside is an invitation.
But it's more than an invitation. It's a gateway, if you will, to all the components of your wedding.
And inside, there's everything you need to know.
There's the invitation, with all the vital information: names, date, time, location.
And then, in the side pocket, there's a card for directions, one for accommodations, one about the reception, and the response card.
Although it's not pictured, there was also a stamped envelope for the response card.
This package, obviously, is not covered by one forever stamp.
But how much does it cost? I have no idea. You have no idea. You know who does have an idea? The post office.
I just read in Bridal Guide that you should put together all the components of your wedding invitation and weigh them at the post office so you know exactly how much postage is needed for the invitation and for the response card.
You don't want to have to worry invitations or RSVP cards not arriving because of insufficient funds. I mean, can you imagine your grandma not getting her invite because you were short 20 cents on the postage? Or your college buddies and their wives show up at the wedding and you don't have room for them because you never got the RSVP back so you assumed they declined. Oh the headaches.
So really, this is fantastic advice, and I had to pass it along to you.
