We will be with close family tomorrow at Thanksgiving, is it okay to hand deliver our save the dates? Everyone will be invited and I thought it would be fun to just give them to aunts/uncles/cousins/etc at our 2 dinners tomorrow. I would not do this if it were invites, but thinking STD are okay. What do my bees think?

@emviamama: I think it’s actually even more special! I love the idea.
Where I come from wedding invitations should (ideally and traditionally) be hand-delieved, actually, as a sign of respect for your guests. Most people now don’t do it because it’s too much hassle and nobody minds getting their invitations in the mail but a close friend and his wife did hand deliver every single invitation when they got married. I thought it was a beautiful gesture and they had fun driving around and drinking coffee with friends 🙂

@MsMeow: Wow, what a neat tradition! There is no way we could deliver all of our invites, but I figure since this is the first big family gathering after the engagement, and the wedding will probably be a hot topic, that it would be okay to pass them out.

@emviamama: Yes, absolutely. It will save you some $$ too!! Stamps are expensive!
I plan on bringing mine to Chrismas and Thanksgiving!

Not sure about actual etiquette, but I like the idea!
Our closest friends hand delivered an invite to their wedding to us because they were ready on the day we were seeing each other and they were excited. I liked it.
