I invited my boss but he is very nice and we work very closely together. It would be different if I didn’t like him.

I’m not that close with mine so no. I only invited people to whom I am realy close. We did a “no college, no colleague” wedding. Kinda makes me sad but oh well, I don’t have room 🙁

I work for a small company and am pretty close with my boss, so I invited her and 3 other people from my company.

I always think it’s proper to invite your boss, and proper for them to send their regrets.  A silly game but less ackward for everyone.

I did.  But I’ve worked directly with her for 4 years and we are pretty close and get along well.  My boss and I will chat about our weekends, I can go to her with any work-related problem and she has my back, and we genuinely like each other (although we can drive each other crazy from time to time).  We are by no means “friends” or have any contact outside of work, but just a really good working relationship.

If you’re not that close with them, and it’s merely a talk-as-needed-on-professional-level relationship, then I wouldn’t feel bad not including him.

I invited both of my direct supervisors and all of the coworkers in our group. But we all work closely together and I like both of them a lot. I hope they come!

I didn’t invite anyone from my work.  They were peeved, but I didn’t care.  They’re a bunch of rowdy dudes that I did not want at my wedding.

I plan to because my whole team does stuff together sometimes. We are all young and get along well.

  • Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall

I sent my whole “team” at work (5 people + spouses) save-the-dates back in October, but when my personal life took a huge turn I had to leave the job this February. I figured ettiquette stated that I still had to send them all invites, so I did. My (ex)boss-boss has already declined, and my (ex)direct supervisor has sent a (very nice!) gift so far but there is no RSVP yet.

I was pretty good friends with a couple teammates and knew I wanted to invite them, but I felt it would be rude to leave the others out so I invited the whole team.

@MrsRedPumps:  Usually a (good) boss will want to buy his/her employee a wedding gift regardless of having been invited.

My current boss? Hell no. Her predecessor? Yes.
