FI has a guy living in his basement apartment. This guy is getting married at the end of August and we were invited to the wedding. FI asked me whether we really have to mail the RSVP card (which is addressed to the fiancée) or if he could just hand it to the guy when he saw him (like he does every morning as they leave for work at about the same time).
The logical side of me says he could just hand it over, but the bride in me says that the fiancée would really rather get it in the mail, so it wouldn’t get lost, misplaced or whatever. Once it’s our turn to send invitations, I know I would rather people send them to me rather than hand them to FI.
We dropped it in the mail today, after some good-natured grumbling from FI. Did I go too far?

Is the invite addressed to the dude in the basement or to the fiancee living elsewhere? If addressed to be returned to a different address, you absolutely did the right thing. It’s exciting to get those RSVPs in the mail…it will undoubtedly be appreciated no matter what! 🙂

@smiles4jo: I think you’re right. Like many brides-to-be I’m sure she is looking forward to getting those RSVPs in the mail!

@MsMindle: It’s to the dudette who lives elsewhere.
Thanks ladies! I feel better now 🙂

YOU DID WELL! Hahahahaha. My fiance’s best friend kept saying he would give it to my fiance… yeah, that never happened. I had to track down their entire family’s meal choices via email, and it was a pain!

Nope. It’s best you sent it to her.

You did the right thing!
My FI ‘missplaced’ one he was given from a friend for a few days…he eventually found it in the truck…lol

You did the right thing. I have one person who refuses to mail theirs in, and will only hand deliever it, even if it puts it past the deadline. It’s SUPER irritating.

It’s best you sent it to her. I had people hand ME the invites, and I still walked straight to the mail box and popped it in because a) It’s easier for me to keep track of them in the mail and I wont misplace it and b) I like getting mail and c) I alraedy paid for the stamps, I might as well use them.

Definitely mail. She paid for the stamp and envelope so she expects it to be mailed.

Probably would have worked out either way, but I’m sure she’ll enjoy getting it in the mail!

If it was addresssed to the female living elsewhere, then you did the right thing.
If it was addressed to the basement apartment guy, I wouldn’t care either way.
We live in very close proximity to a few of FI’s friends, and some have just handed him the RSVP. He usually brings the mail in, too so it’s no different than if they sent in in.
