My FMIL, whom I love dearly (enter sarcasm font), requested that I "Hand Deliver" the invites to herself, FSIL, and Uncle during Christmas Eve. I told her that they would all be mailed out at the same time as the other invites on January 3rd. I told her it wouldn't be fair for me to give them their invites when my parents, sister and one of my brothers will also be at Christmas Eve Dinner. She said that it would be nice and that FSIL had done it for her wedding a few (6 or 7) years ago. I told her I thought it was tacky and rude. Not to mention, I haven't purchased postage or finished fully assembling them.
She keeps saying that she'd like hers at Christmas. I have kept firm at not giving it to her, but I'm afraid she'll go to FI and he'll cave (even though he agrees and backs me 110% with this!).
Agh. Is Hand-delivering considered rude? I feel like it is. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
