My FH and I have small B list. The two couples that are on it are couples we work with. We now have room to extend them an invitation. Would it be completely tacky to bring the invitation to work and hand it to them directly or discreetly slip it on their desk or inbox?

That’s what I did. They seemed perfectly ok with it. It’s not like i have access to their files with their home addresses. I just handed it to them VERY discreetly and told them we weren’t really inviting many people but i wanted to let them know they were invited…blah blah blah. Depends on your work environemnt. I work with all men.

I would do the same thing at my work. We’re trying to keep the numbers down and it’s not like I have access to their home addresses, so I’d just slip it to them and tell them if they’re free that weekend, we’d be more than happy to have them join the fun. I don’t think I’d just leave it on the desk or inbox though.

I think it would be just fine. I think most people are pretty understanding about that sort of thing and would be happy you invited them!

I think that seems fine — I’ve been given wedding invitations by hand before and it would never have occurred to me to be offended. If anything, it seems like a nice gesture that you wanted to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the mail. (You might want to ask them for their addresses at some point anyway, though, since it might make giving thank-you cards easier if they get you a gift.)

I don’t think that would be tacky at all. A hand delivery would be a warm gesture. Go for it!

Not tacky at all. I will be hand delivering invites to two co-workers myself.

I will also be hand delivering and invite to one of my co-workers as well. However, I do think I will hand it to him instead of leaving it in his inbox.

It really depends on your relationship. Emily Post would say that is tacky and to be avoided. That being said, I invited several friend/coworkers that way. Its very situation dependent.

I do not think it is tacky at all. Times are tough right now, people understand that. Why mail an invite when you see them 5 days a week as it is and can deliver it in person.
