I’ve just been informed that my bridal shower will be held 2 months prior to the wedding, would it be totally weird to give out invites to those attending rather than mail them?
I don’t know how I would handle the people who need to wait and can’t rsvp that very second, but those who can accept/decline immediately can just drop them in a basket before they go..

Raeneera: I would not recommend it. From the standpoint of a guest, I would find it ‘odd’. From the standpoint of ‘what ifs’ for you, I would worry that people would accidently leave them behind, lose them, or misplace them since they would take them (potentially) from shower, to who knows where, to home, etc.

My daughter’s wedding invitations will be given out at the door, along with their favor, when the ladies leave her bridal shower. I think the USPS hates us, so I’m not messing around; i.e. I mailed the shower invitations at a PO’s window, after buying stamps – one guest, 2 miles down the road, never got hers and the groom’s grandmother (Phila. to Pittsburgh) took 12 days, to get hers.

Eh, I would mail them. You could get away with giving them out but I think it takes away from the formality of the event.
