So I am officially done making my DIY boarding pass invites and I'm about to stuff envelopes and apply postage. i had a question about etiquette though!


There will be a few girlfriends I am seeing this weekend (everyone who will be together is invited to the wedding)... Is it ok not to bother placing these in the mail, and simply hand deliver them (I will still have the envelopes addressed)? Or is that in bad taste? I just would rather not spend the money on postage if I'm going to see them before the mailman will even make it to their doorstep!


Also- as a side question- would you put everyone's names on the envelope? (Kids etc), or would you address it

A) "Smith Family"

B.) "Mr and Mrs Smith and family"

C) "Mr and Mrs Smith"


We want everyone to know that their kids are invited, and when they go to our online RSVP via our website, all the kids names have been preloaded under the parents names.

I think its perfectly fine to hand deliver invitations, I did! We also got the best man (my FI cousin) to deliver our save the dates to my FI side of the family as they see each other on a daily basis.


I addressed our save the dates to everyone invited, so  John, Jane, Jim and James Doe etc, just to make sure everyone feels included! Hope that helps!

What about the whole "Mr/Mrs"? Is it impolite to just address them by their full name (John & Mary Doe)


Akkk we are so not formal in normal situations but don't want to insult anyone!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
