Wedding stamps and a fashion show

What’s a stamp issue ceremony at a bridal store without a fashion show?

With the stamp enlargements as a backdrop, models displayed a variety of gowns for the crowd at the first day of issue ceremony held last week at the Kleinfeld, bridal salon, in New York City.

Shown above unveiling the "Our Wedding" stamps are, from left Kleinfeld co-owner Ronald Rothstein, a Kleinfeld model, USPS Vice President and Consumer Advocate Delores Killette, The Knot Sr. Editor Kathleen Murray and wedding cake creator Sylvia Weinstock.

And if that wasn’t enough, store designers set up a window display of a beautifully-gowned mannequin standing next to the new stamps and holding some of the “Our Wedding” stationary now being offered by the Postal Service.

The "Our Wedding" stamp booklet was designed by Michael Osborne (who created the geometric "Love" stamp) features 63-cent stamps for invitations up to two ounces and 39-cent stamps for replies and thank-you notes .

The $20.40 combination booklet contains 20 with the 39-cent denomination and 20 stamps valued at 63 cents. The $7.80 convertible booklet has 20 stamps with the 39-cent rate.
