A good majority of the people that I’m inviting to my wedding I see on a regular basis, and I was wondering about the ettiquette of hand-delivering wedding invitations? I’ve heard you’re not supposed to do this, but it would save a lot of time and trouble with gathering addresses and such.
I still plan on addressing the outer envelope to each individual person, just sans street address.

I’m commenting so I can follow this thread because I’ve wondered the same thing. It would be so much easier and not to mention it would save a little on postage.

I will be hand-delivering invitations to immediate friends and family. I will be mailing invitations to co-workers, because I want their wives to receive them. lol

I’m also interested to hear about what others will say, I was planning on doing it to save money since a lot of people leave near by and I see them all the time.

I really don’t see a problem with this except that you could be like my friend and hold onto the invitation until a week before the RSVP deadline. As long as everyone gets them in reasonable time there’s no problem.

I think hand delivering them would be more personal. I’ve never come across anything etiquette wise that says you can’t hand-deliver them.
This topic has come up before, the only issue I remember is you don’t want someone who is not invited seeing you hand them out to others.

I’m hand delivering those I can (most of the people I am inviting to the wedding I see on a very regular basis), and only mailing those to people who are far away (see: across the country). I think it’s more personal and fun!
