Last year I did an internship (which was basically like a full time job). I started right after I got engaged. I did add any of the ladies I worked with to the guest list because I knew my internship would be over when I got married. I ended up getting a per diem job there- I wish I could invite them all to the wedding but 1. we are way over guests and budget and 2. my wedding is 2 weeks away.
My question is this: should I send out an email to them inviting them to the church? If so, how should I word it?? They are all very excited for my wedding and some have even gotten me gifts. What do you think bees??

No, it’s too late. It would be rude to invite them to the church two weeks before the wedding. They all know they’re not invited becuase they haven’t received invites yet. I would just thank them profusely… I’m sure they understand you can’t invite everyone!

First off, congrats on landing an official job there! : )
Second, I agree with the PP; they obviously don’t expect an invite, so there’s no need to send off an e-mail because you feel pressured. However, if you REALLY want them there, I would talk to them in person and just say “you know, guys, I really love you all & want you there supporting us during our vows; would you be interested in coming to the ceremony?”. Maybe offer to take them out to lunch sometime post-wedding as a heartfelt thanks. And remember your thank-you cards!

Graciously thank them for the gifts, but don’t feel pressured to invite them. Especially in the workplace, people understand that there are limits to things like this.

I think it would be nice to invite them to the church. I would do it in person rather than through email however.

No. The reception isn’t to just wine and dine your guests. It is to thank them for coming to the important part (the ceremony). You can’t invite them to something, but then not thank them with the reception.
