    You’ve only worked there for two weeks. I doubt you’ve developed such a strong bond to warrant inviting them to the wedding, especially if it’s going to be a small wedding. They’re probably just making conversation when they ask you, but when you say it’s going to be a small wedding, I think your work people will understand the situation. 

    FI and I are having a small wedding and are not planning on inviting our bosses.

    HeartsandSparkles:  I personally am only inviting friends and family. If I don’t see someone outside of work, they aren’t close enough to me to come to my wedding. I wouldn’t expect an invite from a colleague, especially one who had only been there for a couple of weeks.

    I think in your situation, OP, you are fine not inviting the boss.   I invited mine and most of my coworkers, but I work for a tiny company and had been there 2 years before the wedding.

    HeartsandSparkles:  Given that you have worked there for such a short period of time, I think that you should be okay not inviting your bosses. I invited my boss and coworkers (though one left) – but there are only four of us in the firm. The new guy is not getting an invite because he only started in August. If you really want to then do, but if you don’t want to don’t feel forced.

    I am not inviting my boss that I have known for a couple years because we are not inviting any work people – only close friends and family (75-100 guests). I think if you’ve only worked there for 2 weeks, you are more than fine not inviting them. If I were a boss, and my employee that I knew for only 2 weeks invited me to their wedding, I would be feeling awkward about being invited.

    I will be inviting mine, and a few other co-workers to just the ceremony
