    It used to be considered rude to mail an invitation rather than having it hand delivered (usually by a servant.)  So if anything, you are being extra courteous.

    @Blushingbella:  It is perfectly polite to hand deliver invitations.  Why wouldn’t it be?

    As long as you’re not handing them out right in front of people you haven’t invited, you’re fine!

    I hand delivered quite a few of mine & people loved it! Go for it unless you just really really want to support the post office in their time of need….

    I was going to mail all my invites, including ones to my co-workers who I obviously see regularly. I think it’s fun to get stuff in the mail that isn’t a bill!!!!! But I ended up deciding to hand-deliver my co-worker’s invites because after I completed them, I was a tiny bit worried about the post office ruining them and wanted at least a few to get the recepients in decent shape. I still put stamps on them and everything to make them look special. Maybe that was a bit too much?

    That being said, I think it’s okay to hand deliver invites to people you see often.
