    I think putting a letter in your invitation is a lovely idea! It may not be the most traditional route, but it sounds like your wedding will not be a big “formal” affair, and the bigger stuffy weddings are the ones that are usually more strict on formal etiquette.

    I can certainly see nothing wrong or rude about enclosing a letter! I hope these individuals are able to make it, and that you will be able to reconnect with them, as they’ve had a positive impact in your life.

    I don’t know if there is a specific etiquette for a situation like this but I think it is a lovely idea! I’m sure these people would be thrilled to hear from you and receive a letter like that and to be invited to your wedding. I don’t see anything wrong with it at all.

    Just a little reminder – if you add something to the invite, have it weighed before mailing because it may require extra postage.

    I think it’s a wonderful idea, and while it might not be traditional, I don’t think that anyone would think it rude. What a sweet thought, and I think it’s very appropriate.

    I’m not a foster parent but, I think that is super sweet! Putting the letter with the invitation would be my choice.

    I don’t see how anyone could have anything negative to say about this plan…I think it’s great. Go for it! Screw etiquette. Why do we all worry so much about it!?

    weddings are definitely a milestone where we reconnenct with people who have impacted our lives greatly. I had two of these at my wedding and both of them accepted. I contacted them before as I did not have addresses for them, this is the only reason … this is so beautiful
