Yeah, I handed invites out to people I see on an at least weekly basis (because why the hell not?) but I didn’t say anything other than, like, “here’s your wedding invite! yay!”

I gave several people (coworkers) their invitations in person but I certainly didn’t demand an answer right then and there! I don’t see a problem with hand delivering, but he went too far with being pushy.

I think it’s more and more common for people to save money with email invites and handing them out. My mother asked me if i wanted to give her invites to take with her to portugal since she will be visiting around the time we send our invites out. I think I might take her up on it. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, and i know my family won’t mind either.
However, they way that guy freaked out put me off.
Maybe when you put it in your purse he thought you were just disregarding it? I heard that when you get a buisness card you ar supposed to hold it til you part ways, then you can put it away. Otherewise it’s considered rude.
Shrug.

I debated about handing out invites at the shower to family (we had sent save the dates), but I realized how everyone LOVES getting mail, so I skipped that idea.

That guy is a nutter!

I am considering hand delivering the invites that I can.  I am so into paper products and I worked my butt off on the invites and I *love* them SO much and I just *know* they are going to get destroyed in the mail, so any that I can save from that fate in the mail, I kind of want to.  I totally don’t care about the stamp, I think I’ll save like $10 or something, it’s all about the pretty factor!  No dirt or creases or postal machine codes on them like my save the date envelopes did (even though I hand canceled them!).  

I was basically going to say that (that I wanted to save them the fate of getting messed up in the mail) when I give them to the people I can, and leave it at that.  I was even debating on whether or not to say “We hope you can make it” because I was worried even sayint that would add too much pressure on them…
