Am I supposed to invite my boss? I work in a very small office. My boss and one coworker as well as several engineers, but they are all out in the field. I have worked here for 3 1/2 years, but we never hang out and never do anything outside of work. I’m not planning on inviting my one coworker either.

No you dont have to invite them,and if they ask if they are invited (which would be kinda cheeky anyway) then just your just having close family and friends attending. Im inviting my co-workers and boss BUT thats only because we are all really close outside of work and hang out a lot.(I know,sad right?lol)x

I am in the exact same situation!! I’m an environmental planner in a small office and have worked here for 3.5 years!!! I will be inviting my boss only and not other coworkers. I am doing this only because my fiance’s father is the principal at a small engineering firm with about 6 enginners working under him. He and his wife (office manager) said it was strange when one of the engineers got married and didn’t invite them since the other engineers in the office did when they got married.
Initally I wasn;t going to invite anyone, but my finance and his father agreed that it would be odd if I didn’t invite my boss.

I think you either invite NO coworkers or if you are inviting any coworkers you should invite your boss. It’s the right/smart thing to do. They are the person paying your paycheck and having final say on any bonuses or raises.

I to work in a small office and have been here for the past 3 years. I didn’t invite anyone from work. They are a part of my work life not, my private life.

We both invited our bosses – he did more so because he works for his dads company and felt he needed to invite his superiors. I on the other hand have a great relationship with my boss, and the boss of another department in my company – i invited them both and they came with their wives and had a blast!

I’m inviting my boss because she got me my current job after we worked at a previous job together. I feel like she’s invested in me beyond work, and I value that.
