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!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
