So I just has a goofy etiquette question about invites for coworkers.
I work at a salon with 8 people and I’m planning on inviting all of them to my wedding (and have already told them so, some will even be paid to do hair for the day). They are all young, single, super cool/relaxed people so this question may be totally ridiculous anyway BUT does it seem “cheap” to hand deliver invites to coworkers instead of mailing them, and just requesting the RSVPs back directly?
I just figured, you know, I see them every day. 😛 How did you deliver invites to coworkers?

Nope, I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Especially if they are laid back, down to earth people. Stamps are NOT cheap these days!

Nope, since you’ve already decided to invite everyone, in the salon.

My DH works in a law office and hand delivered our invitations to his co-workers. No one made a fuss.

Unfathomably: I wouldn’t think it’s cheap… but I also love getting things in the mail. I was at a friend’s bachelorette party recently and she mailed invites right beforehand. It was fun for everyone to be like oooh I got mine in the mail! Even though she could’ve hand delivered them to us that weekend…

I think it’s fine. Stamps are expensive, and you’re going to see your coworkers in person anyway. I would still have their names and their guests names written on them so it’s clear whom you are inviting.

I think it would be fine! But I also hate getting shit in the mail. Why do people like this? lol

Traditionally all invitations were hand delivered. There is nothing unaceptable about hand delivering invitations.

I discreetly hand delivered my save the dates at work recently but I’m going to mail the invites. But this is because I’m not inviting everyone at work. I work with a lot of people and just don’t have the room available to invite everyone.
Selfishly too, I wanted to see their reaction when I gave them the save the date. Some of the reactions were so great. But I also don’t want to offend those that I’m not inviting, so I’ll be mailing the formal invites.
