Yes, it is fine to hand deliver your invites. I hand delivered some of my save-the-dates too, and I am going to hand deliver some of the invites as well.

I know I will. We will only mail out invites to people out of town which will probably be about half (100 invites).

I did it.  It’s probably not right etiquette-wise, but nobody I handed them to would have cared.

I’ve only received one hand-delivered invite (from a non-relative) and I thought it was incredibly sweet! The bride was all giddy when she handed it to me ๐Ÿ™‚

i think it’s totally fine.  My assistant is Armenian and she told me it’s customary to hand deliver ALL wedding invitations.  She said they had to go to everyone’s house to deliver them and it was a very special experience.

I was considering this for some of my guests.  Not sure if I will do it though.

This is how they used to do it in the old days – so no it is not bad etiquette at all it is actually nicer!

I hand delivered a few that were to people I saw everyday!

I think the only time it is an issue to hand-deliver is if people who aren’t invited see you passing out invites to others.  Otherwise, I think it’s more personal and, as a bonus, you know for sure that it got to the recipient ok!

I hand delivered some of mine, with little handmade “delivered with love” stamps. No one cared.

IT  is not only ok but much more personal as u get to give it to them in person and talk a little.  We are hand delivering our invites to our very close friends..thu the rest of our invites are posted already ๐Ÿ™‚  every time we get together we tell them something like “we got something for u” and then they get really excited to c it is our invitation ๐Ÿ™‚
