I have tried to stay consistent with things and since I recently had to move in June I would like to invite my old office that is 4 hours away and my new office which is in the same city as the wedding. Both offices have 100 people. Is sending one invitation to each office tacky? I know regularly 1 per household is acceptable but obviously work isn’t a household. I obviously have some people I would rather invite over others but I also cant imagine everyone showing up. I am worried about offending the people I am closer to for not giving a personal invitation but I also can’t imagine tracking down that many addresses and how creepy it will seem to ask someone I’m not close to for their address. I did a pig roast before so of course in that situation a flyer/email to the office is appropriate but then I question giving one wedding invite for the office. Any bees been in this situation?

How are your doing RSVPs? If you just send one to the whole office, I don’t know how you’d keep track.

Do you really want 100 office mates at your wedding?
I would just invite those people with whom you have a relationship outside of work by personal invitation.

I would appreciate being invited personally.

One invite for everyone in an office implies it’s a very casual event like a kegger, not a wedding.

I only invited coworkers that I was friends with (i.e. we ate lunch together or even went to happy hour together after work). I sent them personal invititations. That’s what I recommend – inviting only those you’re friends with.

wait are you saying you’re inviting 200 guests JUST from work? damn girl. lol. personal invites for people you personally want there, office or not.

I would just invite the ones I’m close to. Posting a flyer and trying to keep track of RSVPs sounds like a nightmare.
ETA: unless we were really really good friends, I would be unlikely to attend a wedding where the invite was just posted in the office. And even then, I would wonder why I didn’t get a personal invite.

I agree with the personal invites. If you are not close enough to them that you don’t have their phone number or email to ask for their address…then they should not be invited to your wedding. IMO
