Tips on Mailing Your Invitations

Wedding invitations offer your guests the first glimpse of the special day you have planned to celebrate your wedding. The U.S. Postal Service offers these tips for mailing your invitations and for making them as unique as your wedding.

Since wedding invitations are often oversized and more bulky than regular mail, it's a good idea to take them to the Post Office, with all of the enclosures, to be weighed before you choose the stamps. Most wedding invitations weigh more than one ounce and will need additional postage.

For an added touch of individuality, you may want to use stamps that illustrate special 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.

Some other things to keep in mind when sending out invitations:

* Use complete and current addresses, with standardized abbreviations. Keep in mind that phone books
are not the best source for addressessbecause they do not
include apartment numbers or Post Office boxes.

* Use the correct ZIP Code, which can be found at
or by calling (800) ASK-USPS.

* Black print on a white or pastel envelope is preferred when addressing invitations.
