Bees I am so confused, I really don’t know what I am supposed to do. I work for a “Family business”, I was engaged and planning before I started working there but I have been with them for a year and a half and my bosses really feel like their staff are “family” (their staff does not feel the same way). What do I do? Do I invite the owners of the restaurant? Do I invite the staff that I work with on a daily basis? I need help…. I am actually having nightmares about this. Keep in mind that this is the type of place that if you don’t go in for a shift on your day off your hours will be cut and you will have to kiss a## for weeks to get them back. We have the room in our budget and our guest list to accomidate them but I don’t want to feel pressured into something. I would appreciate the advice from you wonderful ladies.

I would invite them just bc this seems like a very small working environment and your bosses seem petty (by way of your cut hours comments). If you can afford to let them come, I’d invite them. You’ll probably be so busy at the wedding you won’t notice them.

ugh I hate situtions of moral obligation, but I think unless your wedding is a very small family oriented affair you should probably invite them. (especially if you want to keep working there afterward) If you coworkers are your friends invite them too. at least one or two, though how do you stop once you invite one? Im not sure.

i would just invite them. then it is up to them if they want to come or not. if you don’t invite them, they may hold a grudge.

If you can afford it, go for it. Unless you want to deal with some major work drama (by the sounds of it). Or, don’t feel obligated to invite them if you are looking for a different job in the near future.

I’d just invite them, it sounds like it will save you loads of headache afterwards!
