We had a similar problem and it was due to our postman being too lazy to walk up 1 flight of stairs to knock on our door to deliver our packages. My H called the postoffice manager and gave him hell about it and now we have a new postman with no problems so far. If you can’t get anywhere by complaining to the manager, then maybe just stop by the post office (or call) every 2 weeks to see if you have a package.

Do you have any family or close friends that live nearby where you could ship your gifts to?

USPS is usually pretty good, maybe its just the driver in your area? And your registry may ship via a different service, have you checked?

Could you choose stores that don’t use USPS?  I would definitely also try calling the post office to complain.

@bythebook:  Haha, don’t I know it. Wedding brain is settling in for me.

I’m sending all my packages to my parents. Its in a better area than my apartment, and the UPS man loves their dog, so she benefits from extra doggie treats thanks to me. 😉
