Hey bees. This is my first post!! I’ve been stressing out all night because im just finishing up with sending out all the invites and I decided to invite a few people from work, but now i’m actually worried they will think its weird I invited them or they wont want to come!! I don’t know why im suddenly worried, I only invited the people who I get along with really well and make me laugh. I work in a retail store and its not a long term career, just for the moment but I really enjoy the company of some of these people and wanted them there for our wedding. What do you guys think? Was it dumb to invite co-workers? Have you ever been invited to a co-worker’s wedding? They can always RSVP “no”, thats what the cards are for right?

I was invited to a co-worker’s wedding after working at the place for only 4 months. It was a daycare so a bunch of girls working together and I started off as her assistant. We clicked pretty fast. I had a blast at her wedding. I think its fine!

I’m totally inviting a few of my co-workers! Only because we are work friends and get along really well! I don’t see a problem with it at all!

I have a co-worker who I had only known for 8 months when I asked her to be a bridesmaid! That’s totally breaking the rules, I know, but I’m so glad she’s in the wedding as she’s one of those people who will make the BP a fun and happy group, and she was really the only person in the town where I was living who was willing and eager to help out with the early stages of wedding planning since my entire family and bridal party live overseas. Since both of our families and friends are flung across the globe, we got very close in a short amount of time–one of those relationships where you feel like you’ve known a person forever even though you’ve just met. Moral of the story: it doesn’t matter if they’re co-workers; if you like them and want them there, invite them!

- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
I’ve not BEEN to a co-worker’s wedding, but I invited a few to ours!
I’d been working with my colleagues for six months when the wedding came around, and I invited six of my closest ones – four ended up coming. I had them on a table together & with colleagues I USED to work with, and they had a GREAT time. 🙂

We have gone to two co-worker weddings this year and will be going to a third in November. I also invited several of my co-workers to our wedding in Dec.

My one coworker is my bridesmaid, and I’ve invited my boss. I invited two other coworkers but (this is bad!!!!) knowing that they would decline because they are going on a school trip overseas at the time of my wedding. Truly, i wanted them there, so I sent them invites so they knew i did, but i’m not going to lie and say it didn’t work well in my numbers game being able to invite them but count on them not coming.

I was invited to and attended a co-worker’s wedding before.
I invited my whole department (small department, 6 of us total) to my wedding, only 1 came but I knew a couple others were out-of-town, attending another wedding, etc. I invited everyone since it’s such a small department I didn’t want anyone to feel left-out.

I went to a co-worker’s wedding this past weekend. Luckily, she had invited several other co-workers so we had a good time. It would depend on the co-worker.

We only invited coworkers that we considered friends outside of work also and hung out regularly with. My budget did not want to extend itself to casual aquaintances at work with whom I’d have relationship with if I were to leave the company.
