@dilla: OMG! That is terrible news!

I guess what I would do in that sort of a pinch is spread the word through family members and friends. Maybe design yourself a quick wedding website with all of the details regarding location, time, contact information. This way they can login to find the information, and you would not have to dial a billion phone numbers! They could also send you a RSVP email to let you know if they are coming, and whether or not they will be bringing a guest!

I’m so sorry this happened!!

We had a few get returned…. right before the wedding and one get completely lost. We ended up doing word of mouth and then had them look at the website. Luckily everyone pretty much knew they were going to be invited and had flights already. Hope it works out for you!

OMG that is terrible news. Ughh….sometimes I just really want to hate on the USPS. Hopefully most your guests are local and don’t need to fly out.

@artbee: I used to have the USPS as a client and have learned some tidbits while working with them. According to their guidelines, their postmen are given 30 days to deliver first-class mail. If it is undeliverable, they are given another 30 days to return it back to sender. I can see how you got yours back in the mail right before the wedding.
