I am planning to hand deliver several of our invites. I think it would be a nice touch, especially with your bottles. Which I think is a great idea. But I do have to agree with several of the PPs. Putting things in a mailbox is not allowed.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: Its not “Sticking things” its a wedding invitation.. And I don’t think a police officer or THEIR guests would have an issue.. She’s not going to put them in random peoples mailboxes, its guests to their wedding.

I think hand delivery is more personal and would actually make me feel special.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: Lol I stick my rent check in my landladys mailbox each month by her request…  did not know that was illegal… but I’m still gonna do it. tehe

 

 

I don’t ever think hand deliveries are tacky personally. I actually think about half of mine will be hand delivered and they are just paper. Love the invite in a bottle idea, post pics!

Well now I feel awkward – I had always assumed that everyone did hand delivered wedding invites, I mean my family is quite small, and we all live within 30 mins of each other, so with my sisters wedding, she just dropped them off as and when she saw people, obviously it took a little longer.

and just for the record – I love the idea of the glass bottle, if you do forgo the bottle thing for invites, what about using the same idea for table numbers?? Because I think it’s so sweet!

I would not stick them in the mailbox as that is against the law. (or it is in my state) But hand delivered is a cute idea I think. Makes it seem more personal.

Maybe you could have a friend hand deliver them who doesn’t know the guests. Then it wouldn’t feel like you had to have a conversation about it. Essentially make them a courier.

I think it is a great idea to hand deliver them 🙂 — Just so you know -putting things in people’s mailboxes is considered illegal in my state also…

@Rileyxoxo3: They might not but the federal gov’t does. Even if its at their request. Mailpeople aren’t supposed to give you mail even if you are standing right there and just came out of the house.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: I’ve always wondered about that. My mailman seriously walked past my outstretched hand to put the mail in my mailbox. I was like WTF?

Hand delivery is fine in my book.  But in my state I believe it is against the law to put something in someones mailbox. Just checked…. It’s actually a Federal Law, so you can’t do that anywhere in the US.

Also, what would gas cost you to deliver all of that?!?!
