    You really should mail them out as far as proper ettiquite is concerned. It is more soecial to recieve them in the mail, equal with everyone else invited and easier to control you rsvps.

    If you’re inviting everyone, mailing them out would be nice. I handed out 4 to my coworkers, but I would have had to ask them for their addresses, which seemed pointless, OR go above them to a manager, who cannot legally hand that out. And since I work with all men, they could have cared less.

    But since you’re inviting everyone, I say mail them so it isn’t obvious you’re only asking for certain peoples’ addresses

    I used interoffice mail and had the replies returned that way as well. A significant savings in money so screw wedding etiquette – folks know I’m paying for this wedding myself.

    I’m not inviting coworkers, but I think I would probably hand them out. =) Then again, my wedding isn’t meant to come across as formal, which I think would be the main reason to mail them — but hey, why spend money on the postage if you can just hand them to someone with a smile and a "hope you can come!".

    I’m not inviting co-workers, but I wouldn’t mail them. I do have access to their addresses, but I think it would weird them out to get them in the mail vs. in person!

    I think mailing them would be best.   It seems to me that if you handed them out, it gives a more ‘casual’ feel to it…which means that they may be inclined to be ‘casual’ in the way they respond.  As in…they’ll tell you that they are coming, rather than using the RSVP card.

    If you’re ok with that, then I say, hand them out.  But if you are inviting lots of people, it may be difficult to remember who said what!

    I’d say mail them too.  It’s just a little more formal, plus I think people always like getting mail!

    If you have their address, mail them, otherwise hand deliver them on the DL. I ended up doing both because I had addresses for some and others preferred hand delivery.

    Mail them. It’s better to get their address now because you’re going to need it later anyway for thank you cards and in the future also if you do a annual hoiday card it is nice to have the list for that too.

    I’ll be mailing mine as I can’t afford to invite everyone (I work in a division with 60+ poeple) and am only inviting a few folks that I’m close with. I would hate for someone I’m friendly with (but not inviting) to see the invitation in the office and be offended!
