I see nothing wrong with hand delivering the invitatons as long as you are not only giving them to some people at the Thanksgiving celebration and not others. If that is the case, then you need to be discreet about giving them out so as not to make others feel left out and unincluded.

If you are happy with verbal RSVPs then it’s fine.  If you expect more formal ways of RSVPing then probably I’d send them.

I don’t see anything wrong with hand delivery. I plan on doing it with a few.

I don’t see a problem. We’re probably doing the same thing for ppl we see on a daily basis.  But, I’m still having them give me the RSVP cards (with meal choice, etc) simply because that will help me stay more organized! lol

Its true, be aware to make sure if there are ppl at this dinner that aren’t invited don’t feel let out by seeing you give the invitations to some, and not others.  Good luck!

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hand delivery, but they’d still probably get there faster in the mail.

I mailed out save the dates and dropped them in a mailbox on Tuesday that gets collected at noon.  My mom lives across the country in Washington state and got hers on Thursday.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with hand delivering invites.  I did it for some of  my wedding guests that live close by and see quite often.

i concur with everyone, nothing wrong with it. i would have done it to save money on stamps if i hadn’t just moved to the opposite end of the country!  i have also had 2 wedding invitations given to me hand and it was nice – if anything, if felt like more of a personal invitation than being one in a stack/pile that gets mailed off.
