So I’ve got my invitations stamped, sealed, and all ready to go. I was planning on going to the post office first thing tomorrow morning because I need to get these out like YESTERDAY. I started browsing through facebook and up popped a status from the dean of students at the school I graduated from and realized I FORGOT TO INVITE HIM!!! This guy was a huge mentor to me in my years at college, he was my boss for three years, and is someone I use for a reference. I just haven’t talked to him in several months, so it completely slipped my mind.
The problem is that I do not have his personal address. I do obviously have his address at work (at the University). The office he works in is very casual, laid back. I want to get these invites out NOW. Can I send the invitation to him at work? Or should I do the leg work to send him a delayed invite to his personal home address?

Do the leg work, it’s a personal invite, not a professional one. It should go to his home.

Usually invitations are sent to a person’s home address, however in this specific case given that your relationship to this person is through the University and this person isn’t a peer or family member, I think it is ok.

SimTeam: I would send him an email asking for his home address. You can send out the rest of the invitations in the meantime and just wait until he responds to send his. No big deal.

weatherbug: Yeah, this. I think it would be awkward for him to receive a wedding invitation at work. It’s perfectly reasonable to email him at work or through linkedin to get the home address.

I wouldn’t. Contact him and ask for his home address.

I’d call him, ask him for his address, letter the envelope really quickly, and send it to his home address.

I ended up emailing him for his personal address. And the post office was closed yesterday for the holiday so it all work out! thanks bees!
