I had a problem with the postage of my invites and just added more $$ to make it safe. Sorry you’re going through this. Chances are all your guests have had issues with the PO and will understand.

HOLY SMOKES!!!! That’s one of the worst nightmares for a bride. I would have seriously TORCHED that post office Office Space style. I really hope your guests get all their invites, but that’s really a bummer for you because now you have to stress over it the next few weeks following-up to make sure people got invites. Maybe you should try writing an email out to all your guests to get the word out. 🙁

My Save the Dates were sent out in thick, kraft cardboard mailers that were not cheap to buy and about three of them trickled in about a month later after sending them with huge slashes over the custom calligraphy addresses I did on them. So not only did I have to redo the addresses, but I had to use another expensive mailer. Luckily I had purchased a few extra mailers and luckily it was only three I had to redo. I would have gone into full combat mode in your position.

Considering that people send so much electronically these days you’d think the “snail mail” companies would be doing everything they could to entice people to keep sending regular mail to keep them working. I can’t get over the horror stories I hear on the Bee about USPS. They sound awful.
I’m Canadian, and our postal system isn’t without it’s flaws, but I’ve never had to worry that something wouldn’t arrive in one piece! Or not arrive at all.

OP – I am SO sorry this happened to you. Just keep in mind that people will understand and no one in their right mind is going to think you dropped the ball on this one. It’s quite apparent that USPS is well known for messing things up.

This is why when I see headlines like

“Why the Postal Service is Going Out of Business”

…I am not surprised.
