I want to invite many of the people that I work with to my wedding and bridal shower but I am so afraid to ask because I don’t want to invite everyone and I don’t want to hurt anyones feelings. I hope people don’t feel akward either that I am asking them.

It is your wedding, your event, your invite list. Send personal invites to their homes and keep it seperate from work.

I invited most of my co-workers to the wedding, but not to the bridal shower. I really like everyone I work with, and wanted them to be there! I only invited the co-workers that I was really good friends with to the shower. I had a small shower (25 people), and I didn’t want them to feel uncomfortable.

Mine was really informal so we just did evites. (Is that a big no-no?) Everyone saw who was invited, so there wasn’t any, “hey, did you get invited?” I think even if you send invites out to their homes, they will go to work the next day and ask around. But that sort of thing is hard to prevent. You can’t please everyone so don’t stress about it!

Do you think that people will think that I just want gifts? The reason that I am asking is because I don’t have alot of family and neither does my fiance so I just don’t want it to seem ackward.

I like this suggestion of only inviting co-workers you are closest to to the Bridal Shower.
IE for our wedding we invited all the partners, owner and coworkers we’re friends with outside of the office. But I wouldn’t invite my boss and partners to the bridal shower.
And even if your bridal shower is more friends than family I don’t think it would be gift grabby if you were good enough friends.
