My Maid/Matron of Honor is planning a little party at my house to help me address all the save the dates. We are inviting the wedding party (plus SO’s) to come over, help address envelopes, and eat dinner and dessert (I’m cooking for everyone). I thought it’d be a good chance for everyone to meet and hang out too. Is it tacky to invite people over to help though? If they just want to come socialize, that’s fine too.

As long as they know before hand that is what is going on and they are cool with helping, it should be fine. I would makes ure it is clear helping is optional so they know you aren’t expecting them to help.

So long as they know what’s up, you’re not requiring it, and you’re providing some food, it sounds fine to me!

I’ve been to one of these before. Pretty much everyone who was there had already been asking how they could help with wedding-related things anyway…it ended up being a lot of fun!

Agree with PP, if people know that it’s a “working” party, that’s fine. Sounds like a nice get together 🙂

totally cool and people are usually fine as long as you feed them 🙂 just give everyone a head’s up and the work will fly by while everyone’s hanging out.

As long as, like PPs said, they all know what they are in for, and you are not holding it against anyone who declines the invitation.

Totally 100% agree with PPs, as long as it’s clear what the purpose of the gathering is, it’s not tacky/rude! I think it sounds kinda fun. 🙂 I’m happy to help my besties in any way needed!
