First of all, I just read the title again and it’s pretty funny if you don’t know what STD stands for.
I am seeing a few of my friends on Saturday and I’m wondering if I can just give them my save the date post-card or if I should be mailing them all? I hate to waste a stamp (yes, I’m that cheap). Should I hand them out to my friends and immediate family or properly mail them?
PS. It’s a Destination Wedding and it’s 11 months away, not sure if that matters!

I think that is fine to hand over the StD to that family member. However, if there will be people in your presence who are not getting the Std, then I would mail them to avoid awkardness.
Just don’t give the stack to so and so who will relay the cards to someone. I heard of FMILs passing them out to her own friends instead!

As long as you are discreet about no one seeing you give, if not everyone is invited.
Though I personally would be more likely to lose it in my purse or car, then I would if you mailed it.
That’s my problem though, not yours.

@Lily_of_the_valley: If you are going to see them in person, why not? It saves on stamps and wondering if people got the invites or if the post lost them I would just be aware of who you are around so you don’t do it in front of people who are not invited …

@laceydoilies: so true! That would be awkward! I will have to make sure it is done privately if I hand them out. Thanks!

We mailed a few and the person was like “…you see me every tuesday, why did you waste a stamp?” Lol. there’s no “right” answer. Depends on the person. I think handing it to them is more personal. Think of it like a birthday card – mailed ones are nice, but it’s more personal when the person is there.
