Is it okay to hand deliver invitations? Or will my guest think I’m cheaping out on postage?
Truthfully, I’d like to hand-deliver the invites to my local guests. I’ll have to mail everyone out of county. I think it would be a nice touch since I can, but I’m worried I’ll be perceived as cheap.

Hmm… I hand delivered invites to all the local guests. I even interofficed a few to the colleagues that I invited.
I might think you’re being cheap on postage, but more also think that’s damn smart. Why be wasteful when you don’t have to.

I think hand delivering used to be traditional etiquette!
I say go for it – its a nice touch!

I’m hand delivering some and mailing others. Why would I spend on postage when I see them at least once a week?! Not only that, my invitations are pretty heavy and it’s costing me .86 cents to mail one, and I’m mailing about 65 within the US and 15 out of the country (which is even pricier).

I plan on hand delivering as many as I can. I don’t care if they think I’m being cheap with postage. When they come to the wedding, they won’t see think that anymore. And the ones who really get offended, I wouldn’t really want them there anyway.

My family and friend have told me that postage is insane for invitations and to hand deliver as many as I can. I don’t care if anyone thinks I am being cheap. lol

i dont think it matters. like i dont think its a more persoal touch. if you can do it and it saves you money, then go for it. idont think there is anything wrong or good about it. as long as they get delivered on time is all that matters in my opinion.

I’m hand delivering those that I can TO save on postage. .59 x 2 adds up FAST. I don’t care if they think I’m being cheap, I’m saving money so I can buy them dinner!

I plan on doing it for a few people I see iften but because it jusat logistically makes more sence and I will only be saving about $3 so it’s not that I am cheap.

I hand delivered 2 (both “b list” invites).. considered hand delivering to family but ultimately decided that there’s something neat about going to your mailbox and getting a formal invitation so I mailed them instead =)

I’m SO glad I found this thread! Fiance wants to hand deliver some of the invitations to our friends and local family that we see a lot and I was afraid of people thinking the same thing. So glad that other bees have done/are doing the same thing, now I feel a little better about it! 🙂

We are hand delivering to local family and friends. I think there are only a handful of people who will actually get an invite in the mail. I just think that it will a nice touch.

I have a question for those of you planning to hand deliver; are you still going to put addresses on the envelopes or just names?

@MrsMonty11: I plan on putting the complete address on there. I have it so I figured why not.
