I’ve given out all the save the dates. And given them to my coworkers! WHEW…I didn’t know WHO would make the cut. And I’m still undecided with some!!!
How did you all do with inviting coworkers? Or did you at all?

I invited a few that I am close to and socialize with outside of work. Do you mean you gave STDs to people you are undecided about?

I invited my boss, all the partners and everyone on the team I work with on a day to day basis and a few others that I’m friends with outside of the office.

I only have two. They have endured so much of my wedding chatter I feel like I have to invite them. Thankfully, they are like family at this point.

I’m not inviting any of them, I already have too many people on my guest list so none of them made the cut.

I’m going to invite coworkers on my immediate team because I see them for 8-9 hours per day. We spend the majority of our time together so I need to invite them.

I’m not inviting anyone from work. They’d be looking around at all my stationary projects and asking themselves if I borrowed from the supply closet, or spent my time assembling programs during work hours. The answers would be yes and yes, but they don’t need to know that!

I’m inviting coworkers that I now consdier friends and socialize with on a regular basis outside of work. I dont have the room or budget to invite people that I know I would lose touch with if I left the company.

I am only inviting 2 people from work. They are my good friends and we hang out all the time outside of work. One of my coworkers is a bridesmaid, and the other is helping a lot with the planning.

My office only has 4 people, including me – so I’m inviting all of them 🙂

Nope! I probably would if I was still going to be working here after, but I’m not, and so I didn’t. Was nice to not have to worry about them.

FI and I work for the same company so we decided to invite both of our departments. If we didn’t work together, we probably wouldn’t have bothered but since we both know everyone, it made sense. My department is only myself, one co-worker and another girl who used to work with us (but recently transferred departments) that I’m still friends with. FI’s department consists of him, his co-worker and his 2 bosses. All together, they will only add 9 people to our guest list. We’re only inviting about 80 people (including the co-workers) so there was room in the budget for them.

We’re having a tiny destination wedding with immediate family only, so I didn’t have to worry about co-workers and the wedding. We will be having a celebration party this summer for everyone, though, so I had to think about it in those terms. I am inviting everyone in my department (8 people) plus spouses and children. Luckily I have the space (I know some will not come), and it makes me feel better to invite them all. When my other coworker got married a few years ago, I was surprised to find out second-hand that she had invited half of the department, and left the other half of us out (myself included). We’re talking 4 invited, 4 not invited to a local wedding. Although of course I understand guest limits, etc., I thought it was pretty, well, rude to invite some and not others in such a tight-knit department. I didn’t want the guilt of that on my shoulders, so I will invite them all.

I unfortunately have to say yes. My FI invited his entire team which is 22 guests with their spouses or 15% of our guest list. Its painful. I think unless you are really close with your co-workers and see them outside of work I don’t much much see the point. Unforunately I lost this argument with FI and we had to devote a huge chunk of guest list to people we don’t know.

I invited all my co-workes to the ceremony and thats it. I had one co-worker that i had become close to so i invited her and her husband to the reception as well, but wish i hadnt.
