It sounds like it might be easier to give them invitations only. … Maybe casually mention the date to the ones you really want to invite to be sure they are holding it on their calendars. No one even needs to know you printed formal STDs if you don’t give them to anyone at your office. Plus, if the ones you are indifferent to showing happen to have other plans that day, you luck out by having extended the courtesy invite, avoiding the drama and not having to pay for them.

I would give invitations only. Also I never had the urge to attend a coworkers private events so they really probably couldn’t careless if they don’t have a personal relationship with you.

@Soon2BeBee:  Send STDs to friends and family, but not co-workers. Your co-workers will be none the wiser.

STDs are mainly for people who MUST be there and/or have to travel. Your office workers are neither. (To put it bluntly, no big loss if one of them has a prior engagement). You don’t want a year of festering due to sending out early STDs to co-workers.

@Soon2BeBee:  I think the standard eight weeks ahead of time would be sufficient notice.
