    I don’t think it’s tacky, but if they’re finished, I’d send them out. I agree that everyone loves mail!

    Well…I don’t see a need to wait (I think the etiquette would say sooner the better)…though I think the idea of hand delivery is very sweet, and tacky is the last word that would come to my mind.  🙂

    I don’t think it is tacky. We hand delivered some and mailed some. I mama saw most of those people so we saved on stamps.

    @trugem: I was just thinking this. Why waste the postage? Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! Personally, if I had submitted a gift, any thank you is appreciated and I don’t care how it’s received. And if I get to save the bride some money by waiting an extra week for my thank you, all the better!

    Hand deliver them!

    Yes people love getting mail, but also imagine the delight when someone hands you a card sealed in an envelope with… perhaps a quick word of “We just wanted to thank you.” Something like that. I know I would be equally as excited to receive it in person.

    See…and I think it’s more personal to hand deliver! I’m happy either way I receive a note from someone. I think you can’t go wrong either way!

    I think it is fine to hand deliver to those that you will see on Thanskgiving.  I would mail the rest out before the holiday though.  Normally, I think you should send thank you notes as soon as possible, but Thanksgiving is next week.
