Only a Bride Would Notice or Care

March 13, 2010

Once the postcards were ordered, I started looking for stamps. Well, I quickly realized that the USPS only has 1 design for their 28-cent postcard stamps…the polar bear.

I think this whole stamp thing is a perfect example of something that only a bride would notice or care about. When I googled the Polar Bear stamp, I found numerous websites with brides complaining about the same thing! Even Miss Hamster (please add link) blogged about the dreaded polar bears! See, I’m not alone – I’m just a crazy bride, and these things matter.

Or do they? If I really cared, I could just bite the bullet and order custom stamps from


But I had to remind myself that the whole reason we went with postcards was to save money, and with custom stamps costing almost 4 times the value of each 28 cent stamp, it’s just not worth it. Even if those Polar Bears feel completely out of place on our autumn wedding postcards. *cringe*

Have you compromised on any of the details for your wedding in the name of common sense?
