While thinking about my crazy guestlist issues (another story for another day), I started daydreaming about having it all resolved and sending those buggers in the mail.
Then I got to thinking: for my close friends and the bridal party, would people appreciate me giving them the invitation in person? It’s a little extra effort and I’d rather mail them, but it could be thoughtful.
Thoughts? I’m dense when it comes to etiquette.

Distributing them in person is perfectly fine.

I think you can distribute them in person if you want. Personally, I love getting mail (and rarely get it), so I think it’s fun to send them in the mail.

invitations should always be mailed. always. plus its way more fun go get mail.
would you like people to hand you their rsvp card? not really, its easier to get them in the mail so they dont get stuck in your purse/pocket etc. same basic pricipal. it its ment to be mailed, then mail it.

I love getting mail (that isn’t a bill). I vote mail them.

I tend to agree with @clairdarling. While I don’t think there is a set rule about it, I firmly believe they should be mailed as well.

I don’t think it’s wrong to hand them in person. (Particularly since it would be for guests who are definitely going. If it was every guest, I could see someone feeling awkward if they weren’t planning on going.) But honestly, if you would rather mail them, I think you should really just mail them. It’s easier for you, and probably no one is expecting them to be handed in person.

Yey for decisions that make my life easier! Besides, I like getting (non-bill) mail, too.
Out in the mail they will go!
