No, but be very careful how much you talk about your wedding at work.  It can lead to sticky situations, decide now which way you want to go and stay the course.

I agree, keep the conversation light and if they say anything just say that it is a small, intimate wedding with only family and close friends.  Don’t ever feel pressured to invite anyone to your wedding!

I guess a good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if you’d still be friends with your co-worker if you didn’t work there. If not, then it is obvious that they don’t mean as much to you and shouldn’t be invited. My FI and I are also paying for our wedding ourselves and because of our budget we have a tight 50-person guest list. That really leaves only 25 on each side including family and friend’s plus one’s. In our case, we have no room for acquaintances. And like the others have said, save the wedding chatter for WeddingBee. 🙂

I didn’t invite any co-workers for this reason. DH invited some of his, but I let him make the call as to which ones. As far as I know there was no fall-out. I don’t think that just because someone invites you, you have to invite them (and it wasn’t even your co-worker’s wedding, it was her daughter’s!) Everyone has different budgets, venue restrictions and preferences as to size.
