When I was purchasing every last one of the wedding ring 44 cent stamps at the West Medford post office the other day I inquired about having my invitations hand cancelled on the advice of Bridesmaid F. Postman Joe didn't seem too excited about it at first, but then I offered up some of my homemade chocolate chip cookies as an incentive. He nodded happily and so I went home in the 90 degree heat and baked a batch of cookies for Joe. Of course I made a few for N too. He wouldn't let me give them all away!
Today I made it to the post office just in time before closing to drop off my invitations and have them sent off.
