Nearly three weeks after taking them to the Loveland Post Office, some of the invitations are starting to arrive at their destinations.

Anne Rosenberg of Fort Collins says she doesn’t know where they’ve been, nor why they’re in such bad shape.

“They’re sliced, torn, dirty and they’ve obviously been run through a machine which they weren’t supposed to,” Rosenberg said.

She says the invitations were professionally designed and printed, costing hundreds of dollars and hours of time. Still, the bride says she’s happy at least that some guests are getting their invites.

Rosenberg is getting married in the beginning of August in Virginia. She wanted her guests to have time to make travel arrangements.

When asked if it was a story she’d be telling her grandkids someday, she said, “Yes, this is one for the books.”
