    I think that is fine to hand over the StD to that family member.  However, if there will be people in your presence who are not getting the Std, then I would mail them to avoid awkardness.


    Just don’t give the stack to so and so who will relay the cards to someone.  I heard of FMILs passing them out to her own friends instead!

    As long as you are discreet about no one seeing you give, if not everyone is invited.


    Though I personally would be more likely to lose it in my purse or car, then I would if you mailed it. 

    That’s my problem though, not yours.

    @Lily_of_the_valley:  If you are going to see them in person, why not? It saves on stamps and wondering if people got the invites or if the post lost them I would just be aware of who you are around so you don’t do it in front of people who are not invited …

    We mailed a few and the person was like “…you see me every tuesday, why did you waste a stamp?” Lol. there’s no “right” answer. Depends on the person. I think handing it to them is more personal. Think of it like a birthday card – mailed ones are nice, but it’s more personal when the person is there.
