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.
