Stranger Who Mistakenly Received Wedding Invite Sends Note and a Gift

The note read: "Congratulations — go have dinner on me."

When an Oregon couple sent a wedding invitation to the wrong address, they were shocked to learn it was sent back with marriage advice and a cash gift attached.

Cassie Warren, 25, of Springfield, said she mistakenly sent an invitation to her aunt and uncle’s old address.

"I was kind of in a little bit of a hurry to get them addressed and get them all out and all of that while I was at work," Warren told “I didn’t check close enough, the address. It’s on the same street, but it’s just a different house.”

She didn’t realize she had made the mistake until she saw the same invitation back in her mailbox.

Attached to the invitation was a $20 bill and a note that read: "I wish I knew you — this is going to be a blast. Congratulations — go have dinner on me. I’ve been married for 40 years — it gets better with age."

Warren explained the mystery sender was even kind enough to put the invitation in their own envelope so she could resend the original invite to the proper recipient.

While the sender was careful not to be identified, Warren said she assumes the kind gesture was sent from the wife of a married couple, and sent a thank you note back to that same address, but has not yet received a response.

With the cash, Warren said she and her fiancé had dinner with a friend, who will be deployed by the time they tie the knot in June, about a year after they were engaged last July, as photographed by Megan Rose

"We just thought it would be good to spend some time with him," she said.
