I am inviting everyone at FH’s office to our wedding. My question is do I have to send them a STD? This is a situtation where we are inviting everyone to be polite, however, if people leave the company, we do not expect them to come. This is why I just want to mail the formal invitation at a later time. Would this be appropriate?

I don’t see why not. STD’s are usually more for out of town guests benefit anyway, so they can plan ahead, save and such.
I think that just the formal invite for the co-workers is totally fine! In fact I think it’s a really good idea and I wish I would have thought of it for a few people that did get STD’s from me (ooohhhh, ‘get STD’s from me’ sounds BAD! LOL)

We are sending STDs, as our wedding is the weekend after 4th of July… not only a traditionally busy, busy time for most people but it is also almost impossible to get a hotel room in our town all summer. I think of the STDs though as mostly for people who need a hotel room, and people who we would be really, really disapointed if they weren’t able to be there.
We have a few coworkers on our list to invite, and some that we are still talking about whether to invite. I actually think I may not send STDs to the coworkers – for us mostly an issue, like you, that we would not expect them to come if we were no longer working with them for some reason. I think the only firm rule is that you cannot send someone an STD and then fail to send them an invitation.

I wouldn’t send them to them… I only sent mine to the people I knew would have to travel long distances or plan far in advance for schedules.

we were just discussing this! i would say dont send them to your office mates. we decided to NOT send one to our bosses (polite invites)… but did send one to 1 person in the office who is very close to my FI… no other coworkers are invited. we told the 1 co-worker not to mention it around the office since she is the only one invited.
