Our invites are going in the mail this week. His parents and sister are coming this weekend for a visit. She’s moving and they will be driving through our town, so they are going to stay the night.
Is it rude to hand them their invitation when I see them? It will still be addressed in an envelope.

I’ve wondered about this as well. I mailed out STD’s just last week to people that I see all the time and live on the same street as us.
From what I’ve read – you still should mail them. I think its a bit outdated and is really situational. If you think they wouldn’t care, it’s no big deal.

Are you concerned about his sister not receiving the invite because she’s currently between addresses?
Personally, I think they might find it more fun to get it in the mailbox; it would brighten my day if I were them. 🙂 However, I don’t think it’s RUDE to give it to them in person.

I do not think it’s rude. Heck, save the money on postage!

Some people I am hand delivering. I will just give them to my friends I see all the time that never check their school mailboxes lol. Other than that I will be mailing all of them. I dont think it would be rude to hand deliver them, but I do think it takes away from it somehow.

I don’t see why people would think it’s rude… I mean, I know that people have talked about this in the past, but it seems *more* formal to me to hand-deliver them! It means you took the time to organize and make sure you had them and then you get a personal communication when you give it to them! That’s harder and more thoughtful than just dropping them in a mail box with everyone else’s!

i don’t think it’s “rude”…but i would send it just to be sure it got to her actual house and was not lost. Things can be misplaced when traveling/moving. for something as important as a wedding invitation, I’d spend 44 cents to be sure it gets to their house!

I hand delivered probably 15 of our invites. I don’t think it’s rude at all, in fact I think it makes it feel more personal and exciting. And you get immediate feedback on your invitations 😀

I handed them out to people at work. I don’t see the point in mailing it and spending money on postage if I see them every day.

I don’t think it’s as fun for the receiver to get it personally versus in the mail, but I also don’t think it’s rude. I did that with my co-workers and a few friends that I see all the time.

I think it is fine.
It’s only bad if you do it while in a group and some of them arn’t invited – Sweet 16 style.

No it is not rude to hand deliver them.

Seriously, I answered a very similar question a few minutes ago…..I don’t see what is wrong/tacky/rude about hand delivering invitations. Surely, if anything, it makes it more personal? I don’t know why so many people seem to worry about this, I think it’s a nice thing to do, and if it saves you money…bonus!
