"These stamps were designed specially for unique wedding invitations, eliminating the need for an additional stamp on unique invitations that weigh two ounces," says Francia Smith, vice president and consumer advocate for the U.S. Postal Service.
For an added touch of individuality, you may want to forgo the wedding-themed stamps altogether and instead use unique stamps that illustrate unique interests of the bride or groom.
For example, a diving enthusiast might want to use the Pacific Coral Reef stamps, while a film buff would enjoy the American Filmmaking commemorative.
"And you'll really wow potential guests by having your unique invitations postmarked in a city with a love-themed name," says Smith
There are several cities to choose from, including Loveland, CO 80538; Loveville, MD 20656; or Romance, AR 72136.
To get these postmarks, unique invitations should be stamped, addressed and sealed, placed in a larger envelope or box and mailed to the Post Office of choice with instructions to be postmarked.
Address the package to "Postmaster" of the appropriate city, state and ZIP Code.
says you should allow an extra week for the unique invitations to reach the Post Office, be postmarked and mailed to each invitee.
"You can also use USPS.com to have your mail held while you are on your honeymoon, or to change your address so your mail will be waiting for you at your new home when you return," says Smith
