Invite Your Guests
The best rule of thumb is to invite your guests 6 weeks ahead of time. In this case, you have cut it somewhat close, so you need to arrange your party ASAP to get the largest number of people to attend. Invitations can either be sent out by email, or through traditional mail. Let your guests know how to dress for this event. Let them know the date, time, location and how to RSVP. It’s also a good idea to create a few posters prior to the event and place them around the office in order to generate excited anticipation.
