I started a new job 2 weeks ago… my wedding is 11/15 and I’m not sure if I should invite my boss. There are almost 100 total employees but I have two main bosses. One I know is married and the other one I’m not sure about. I have about 10 co-workers on my team under these two bosses, but I don’t know any of them well. I also have an assistant. Everyone knows I am getting married and several asked if it was a big or small wedding (I always said small and emphasized that, lol). I plan to work here a LONG time and want to make a good impression. So, should I invite anyone from work? I’m still really new but don’t want to offend anyone. IF I invited anyone, I was thinking of inviting my 2 bosses (and SOs if they have them) and my assistant (and her SO if she has one). Is that a good cut off? Anyone else been in a similar situation? Any advice is appreciated! 🙂

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.

We are expecting 125, so I guess it’s not that small- I just said that because I didn’t want everyone to think they would be invited, lol. My parents are of the mind that you should ALWAYS invite your boss, so I wanted to hear other opinions.

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.
