• Atlanta-area family loses $3,000 worth of wedding invites in the mail

    ATLANTA - An Atlanta-area family is trying to figure out what happened to dozens of wedding invitations.

    The mother of the bride said that about a month ago, she delivered almost 200 invitations to the post office, thinking that gives workers plenty of time to deliver them. She said that even today, members of the wedding party are telling her, they never received their invitation.

    Linda Hill said she is stressed because on July 22 she mailed 185 invitations for her daughter's Sept. 20 wedding.  Dozens of people are saying they have not received
    their invitations, which she said cost about $3,000.

    "I don't know what the solution is. I guess (what) we'll probably have to do is contact everyone who hasn't RSVPd and maybe by email and see if they're going to come to the wedding," she said.

    Hill said she used a northwest Atlanta post office to mail the 185 invitations and even used extra postage to make sure the invitations arrived on time.

    Channel 2 Action News called the Postal Service and the country’s postmaster general about what Hill and others like her should do in this situation. Channel 2 Action News is still waiting to hear back.

    This past weekend, a postal worker in another state was caught on camera throwing away baskets filled with mail into a dumpster. Hill is praying that didn't happen for this special occasion.
