Your wedding invitations are a key piece of stationery that invite guests to celebrate with you and your partner on your big day. They also provide important details including your wedding venue, dress code, and schedule of events. But that’s not all! Wedding invitations are key to setting the tone for your event, nodding to your chosen theme or aesthetic.

While your invitation suite will certainly give guests a glimpse at what to expect, they’re inevitably put into envelopes in order to be mailed and delivered. Luckily, there are countless options for wedding stamps for your invitations so you can add postage and also continue to infuse personality. 

“Not only can ordinary postage stamps alter an otherwise appealing envelope, but stamps also serve as the first impression your guests have of your wedding day,” says Chris Neubauer, founder of Yonder Design. “While postage stamps don’t necessarily complete the design, they often help accentuate every detail.”

Tips for Choosing Wedding Invitation Stamps

While you can certainly head to the post office to choose whatever stamps are currently available, there are other options to find the ideal fit for your design. According to Neubauer, many older stamp options are available through resellers on Amazon. “Vintage stamps don’t necessarily have to be old, they just might not be available from the USPS anymore,” he says. “It’s important to check the value of a vintage stamp, though, because many can cost five times their face value.” You may also find stamp designs you love through eBay or Etsy.

Neubauer also notes that "aged" stamps have very low value, "so it’s important to keep in mind that you will likely need to mix in a few current, higher-value options,” he explains. “You can check with your local post office regarding the cost to maintain a completed invitation so you have the proper value.”

As you’re choosing the perfect set of stamps, consider how they might reflect your wedding’s overall color palette, theme, or aesthetic. You can choose to display symbols that might be meaningful to you and your partner or landmarks from nearby your venue.  “Lean into the details that your guests will notice throughout your wedding events,” says Neubauer. “Mixing and matching various sized stamp shapes is a great way to create visual interest.”
