    Hi

    I was just wondering what everyone is doing with their invites, our venue is paying to post ours as they want to pop accomodation information inside but there were a few friends who i see every day and i was going to hand them theirs as i dont know there full addresses.

    will you be posting all yours or are you handing a few out??

    We did a bit of both with ours but only because posting them all would have cost a fortune! If the venue is paying postage for you then I would say let them post them xxx

    We will onky be posting ones who dont live in the area or i dont see often . I think ill be posting maybe 10 out if 60 the rest ill be hand delivering

    Like linzi said if they are paying let them do it but you can give them by hand to whoever u want. Really the only ones who would probably need hotel info would bw the ones that need posting.. if you can hand deliver i doubt these people would need accomodation as they live close by??

    I think most of ours were hand delivered or passed on through someone else.

    We kept a list of who we thought might not accept, and sent about 90% of our invites out. We then sent the rest out when we received the RSVP's

    We posted most of ours, but hand delivered to people we saw. However if your venue is willing to pay for postage I would let them all go in the post.

    Stamps are blimming expensive, so we hand-delivered any that we could; same with the save the dates and thank-you cards.

    However, your venue are posting them for you, so that obv isn't an issue, but if you don't know some people's addresses I'd just tell them and say you'll hand deliver those particular ones; just ask them to give you the accommodation info to pop inside.

    Most of ours will be given out by ourselves or passed on for those we see less often or live a bit further out but see other family members. OH has a lot of family in Manchester so about 10 will be posted (stamps are expensive been for 2nd class!)

    If your venue are offering to post for no extra cost I would let them. Maybe ask if you can get the accomadation information first then ask for the ones you want to give out yourself.

    We're going to only post to people who live a distance away or who we don't see regularly, the rest we'll either give to the people in person or hand deliver through their doors.

    Will hand deliver the majority of ours as don't see the point of paying out for stamps when we don't need to. We only have a few family members who don't live in the same town so theirs will need posting but that's it x

    We'll be hand delivering most of ours as it'll cost a fortune in stamps too send out 150 invites lol! And we won't have many to post as most of the ones that would need to be can be passed on by my Mil when she comes to visit us :)
    Plus unrelated to cost I like the idea of hand delivering as its mote personal :)
