We did the same thing. I didn’t want to, but the people I work with were like…we see you everday, just hand it to us and then my FI refused to mail his because he didnt want to get addresses. Haven’t quite figured out the thank you note situation with that yet lol

It’s not tacky.  Hand delivering is a preferred method.

I really don’t think most people would mind… my FI and his family insisted on having his parents hand-deliver most of the invites to the family and friends that live where they live (which is pretty far from where we live, so we couldn’t deliver them ourselves).  No one took any offense to that, and I know some people thought it was sweet that they took the time to bring them personally.

I only invited two people from my office, and I brought them their invites.  They were very happy to be invited and I’m sure they weren’t offended that I didn’t mail the invitations!

I think a lot of what we all think is expected, or what some people might think is tacky, is generally a matter of opinion!  If you don’t like the idea, then definitely mail them.  If you don’t mind and don’t think you’re going to offend anyone, I say do whatever works for you!

We passed out a handful of our invitations, and a lot of people told us they would rather us just hand deliver them so that we could visit with them for a little bit. Same with some of the RSVP cards, even though we put postage on them, atleast 10 people have hand delivered them back to us, and most of the people we work with just brought them in to give back to us.

We hand delivered about 12 of our invites to our co-workers, don’t sweat it.

I hand delivered some invites to family but mailed the rest. If I mail the invites, I at least know that they got to that person’s house. If a give someone an invite when I see them out and about somewhere..who knows where it will end up.

I think it takes more effort to deliver them by hand, so I actually think it is more thoughtful, and not tacky at all! It’s just a side benefit that it is cheaper 🙂

A lot of people told me to just hand deliver their invites, but I opted to mail them.  I kind of wish I did – since the post office was not so delicate in their handling of the invites and a lot of them were worse for the wear (and they were pocketfolds, so you’d think they’d be more durable!).  

We recently got a wedding invite hand-delivered – I figured it was because they didn’t have FI’s address… but, I didn’t think it was a big deal.
